Travel to Guatemala with On The Go Tours

Guatemala is a country of spectacular natural beauty with picturesque highland lakes and lush jungle, smoking volcanoes and lovely colonial towns. This Central American gem remains refreshingly off the well-trodden tourist trail despite its many wonderful attractions; the picturesque colonial town of Antigua, nestled among three volcanoes; Lake Atitlan, arguably one of the world’s most beautiful lakes; and magnificent Tikal, located in the heart of the rainforest and regarded as the greatest city of the Mayan world.

The ruins at Tikal
Our top pick for Guatemala

Hidden away in a rainforest in Guatemala are the ruins at Tikal - one of the largest archaeological sites of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979, some of the monuments at Tikal date as far back at the 4th century BC and are fascinating to explore.

Cristobal did a great job. Was always smiling. Was very well organised. Kept the group in good spirits. Went over and above the call of duty. So for example he found us lots of nice restaurants (which was not part of the itinerary so I consider this a pleasant bonus). He was also very helpful when I had a couple of difficulties during the tour. Cristobal has a good temperament for being a tour guide - happy, positive, approachable and organised.”
