Guatemala Tour Reviews

4.1 - Very Good Based on 27 customer reviews
Rewarding, but tiring Reviewed Tour: Beyond the Mayan World
3 - Average
“Sites visited were interesting, but lots of early starts and long journeys made the trip quite tiring. Did not get to see enough of the local life.”
Rewarding but hard work! Reviewed Tour: Beyond the Mayan World
3 - Average
“A rewarding trip but exhausting, I need a holiday to recover. It did lack a bit of wow.”
Wonderful Trip, every day was amazing Reviewed Tour: Beyond the Mayan World - Day of the Dead Festival Departure
5 - Excellent
“The trip was great from the first day until the last, It was like traveling with a family more than anything else. We were well taken care of with recommendations for what to do with spare time, restaurants, rest stops, we were all on this adventure together.”
BEYOND THE MAYAN WORLD Reviewed Tour: Beyond the Mayan World - Day of the Dead Festival Departure
5 - Excellent
“Hi, if anyone is looking at this trip go for it. we had a fantastic time our tour leader was great and all the guides new so much. The accomadation was great too. Some of the drives were long but you have to get from A to B so just look at the lovely scenary.”
A trip full of diversity Reviewed Tour: Beyond the Mayan World - Day of the Dead Festival Departure
5 - Excellent
“The trip was very different from the previous trips I have done with Exodus, and different doesn't mean bad, it means it surprised me and opened my eyes in different ways. I booked this trip to see: Day of the dead, mayan ruins and visit three extraordinary countries and the trip did just that.”
Beyond the Mayan World - Day of the Dead Reviewed Tour: Beyond the Mayan World - Day of the Dead Festival Departure
5 - Excellent
“This was a very special trip as it not only showcased the wonders of Mayan archeological sites but also gave us an intimate and unique experience of the Day of the Dead celebrations and the life and culture of the counties visited.”
Ruta Maya November 2014 Reviewed Tour: La Ruta Maya
5 - Excellent
“This was a very enjoyable trip where all the participants got on well together. Although some of the mini-bus transfers were long the scenery and the towns and villages we passed through were great. Even when we were held up for more than an hour by local people blocking the road as a protest about health care added to the colour - we wish them well.”
La Ruta Maya Reviewed Tour: La Ruta Maya - Day of the Dead Festival Departure - Reverse
5 - Excellent
“Excellent sites - didn't know about Tikal before I went as was aware of Chichen Itza but this was amazing. Was aware before going that there would be long journeys but some were too long. Exodus need to look at day from Lake Atitlan to San Cristobal de las Casas as this was 12 hours - too long. Great companions on the trip.”
Experience the Indigenous Way Reviewed Tour: La Ruta Maya - Day of the Dead Festival Departure - Reverse
5 - Excellent
“This trip is an excellent way to learn about the Mayan ways from the Pre-Classical period in antiquity all the way through to the struggles of the Mayan people in today's world. Be prepared to swat up on some amazing history along the way. The tour begins in the UNESCO-listed city of Antigua and then proceeds across various settlements with significant Mayan populations in Guatemala and Mexico . The marks of civil wars of the 1900s are never far away. Our guide Armando seemed to be a wealth of knowledge on all aspects of local life and history. The ruins are well-selected and interspersed with great sights. Highlights for me included swimming in Cascadas de Agua Azul and in a cenote in Yucatan. I loved the groove of Caye Caulker and snorkelling on the reef is a must. Tikal was the climax of the tour with a walk in the jungle accompanied by birds and monkeys. The panorama over the landscape from the highest pyramid was marvellous.”

Guatemala - Travel Highlights and Travel Tips

A trip to Guatemala brings you to a nation filled to the brim with history and sites to see. After declaring its independence from Spain in 1821, this small nation has developed and created its own culture and heritage. If you are wondering about a holiday to Guatemala, think no more! There is plenty to do there, no matter what you like to see or do, from historical museums and archives to gorgeous rainforests. 

Travel Highlights

  • Revel in the natural beauty and wonder that Guatemala has to offer.
  • Experience the traditional way of life, by visiting the more remote villages, or going at the time of a festival, like Dia de Los Muertos.
  • Hike through Mayan ruins and see a world preserved in stone.
  • Partake in the seeming isolation, while experiencing an explosion of culture in Chichicastenango, town located in the El Quiché department.
  • Learn of the biodiversity in Guatemala at the Biotopo del Quetzal.
  • Take in the Pacific Ocean on the coast of Guatemala.
  • Watch the bats leave their caves at night at The Lanquin Caves.

Travel Tips

  • As with any place, be aware of your surroundings and your belongings.
  • Don’t hike without a guide; they know the place better than you do, so trust their judgment and guidance.
  • Go to the markets to purchase inexpensive produce, but be aware that vendors might try and charge you more if you look like a tourist.
  • Take the chicken busses; but be aware that you may be charge more. Ask someone how much is being charged and give that to the caller.
  • Exchange money in larger cities, because smaller ones don’t have ATM’s.
  • Keep in mind that Guatemala is a third world country; take care of your items
    and keep them close.
  • The water is not safe to drink; keep to bottled, or consider buying SteriPen or LifeStraw for your trip.
  • Food options can be limited if you are a vegetarian, but otherwise, indulge in kak'ik, antojitos, or fiambre.
