Tours to Guatemala

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.

Other highlights include the colourful Chichicastenango (Chichi) market and Livingston, a lively town with a Caribbean vibe, surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery imaginable.

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.

This tour isn't for the faint hearted. You are covering a lot of places/countries in a short time. It was great to cover so much area but if you are looking to have more time and at a slower pace then this tour probably isn't what you are looking for. Mostly early morning, travelling most days and experiencing a lot of different sights, sounds and cultures. There is so much to take in. If it's mixing with the locals and learning about their history and culture, then this is the perfect tour. ”

I was very impressed with the Mayan Empires Tour. Both Tour Leaders (Lisa & Nancy) were professional, knowledgeable, helpful and loads of fun. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in travelling to Central America. The only thing that I was disappointed with was that breakfasts weren't included with the accommodation.”
