A World of Discovery

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.

Tour was good. Group was very international and good

Not so good: Only one excursion included. ”

Wonderful tour. Every hotel had a pool. Met great people in my age range. Very fast paced. San Ignacio was probably not worth stopping at, but it was probably just because all tours were cancelled due to rain the evening before (horseback riding was the only option). Could have spent another day in Caye Calker. Didn't receive any history about the locations other than the private tours that we paid separately for.”
