Full description
This day-long tour of Guatemala, beginning from Antigua or Guatemala City, covers market villages to picturesque lakes and is sure to give you a bar-none introduction to some of the country's loveliest sights!

Start your day at the open market of Chichicastenango. Here, you can explore the indigenous market and witness the incessant exchange of fruits, vegetables and handicrafts between local people and foreigners. This charming local market really does offer just about everything—you can even shop for wood products, ceramics and the sorts of gifts that the Mayan priests offer on their pre-hispanic altars.

We will then move on to visit Santo Tomás church, where the Popol Vuh (The sacred book of the Maya) was found. For the perfect end to the day we will spend the remainder of our time overlooking one of the world's most beautiful lakes.

Knowing Pana and Chichicastenango are mandatory stops, they are very nice places with a lot of culture. I think the tour could focus a little more on the lake or include a boat ride and reduce shopping time. Also if the food is not included in the tour let people eat somewhere of their choice.

The rest we did not like, if you are in Panajachel Lunch in front of the lake

It would be better to have lunch in front of the long one and not in a bar, in Panajachel
