An amazing tour! Totally recomended, we learned a lot about the mayan culture, history and deities. Salvador, our guide, is from Lake Atitlan, he is amazing, truly recomended. At the start, due to a confusion with the name of the hotel, the driver didn't pass for us. But Salvador made the arrangement with the company to give us a private shuttle few minutes after. So, it was great! Again, totally recomended. You have to walk a lot in the tour to enjoy it in fullness, so is not recomended for childs or old people.
We had an excellent experience. We were picked up on time from our hotel. The guide explained the tour clearly. We visited a couple of indigenous settlements around the lake, attended a demonstration of the weaving process, and had plenty of shopping opportunities. The guide was knowledgeable, courteous, and was able to keep the schedule even though it was a busy market day with a lot of traffic and people on the streets. We returned at the appointed hour.
This is a good value excursion to a Volcano area. On time pickup, a friendly engaged guide despite my lack of Spanish, a well covered tour and on time drop off. The climb is reasonably tough but anyone reasonably fit can do it. The track is rough and rocky so wear good boots. The Getyourguide people were very good and efficient.
One of the best things I've ever done! The hike up takes about 1.5 hours and about an hour to come down. Some parts were steep and a little challenging, but you can rent a horse to get to the top. The amazing views were well worth the climb, would definitely do it again!
Even though it started badly as they forgot to pick me up they went out of the way to correct this and send me a private driver bc and a private guide, so everything ended for the best.
