Travel that's shaped around you

We know that travel has the most meaning when it's created individually for you. Our specialists will only start designing your trip once they understand exactly what you want it to be. So, consider this idea simply as inspiration for your own experience.

Itinerary idea in detail

Ask us if you would also like us to arrange your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • Arrive in Guatemala City where you will be met and driven to the historic capital of Antigua in a private vehicle.

  • Today you will have a half day walking tour of beautiful colonial Antigua to get your bearings and visit the many pretty squares and churches.

  • Free day to further explore Antigua at your own leisure or perhaps go on a chocolate making tour, visit a coffee plantation or try a volcano hike.

  • Drive from Antigua through spectacular scenery and traditional villages until you reach Quetzaltenango, in the heart of the highlands. You will also visit Chichicastenango market on route.

  • This morning you will be transferred Lake Atitlán via a colorful indigenous market — gain a fascinating insight into community life as locals barter for their weekly shop.

  • Today you will take to the waters of Lake Atitlán with your private guide, visiting some of the communities dotted around the lake shores.

  • This morning you will be transferred to Antigua via Comalapa Market.

  • This morning you will be transferred to Cobán, located in the beautiful Verapaz region, known for its limestone caves and birdlife. This afternoon you will visit Ram Tzul private reserve.

  • Full day private guided tour to the beautiful pools at Semuc Champey and nearby caves.

  • Depart Cobán this morning for the drive to Flores, gateway city to Tikal.

  • Today you will take a private tour of Tikal. This really is one of the most outstanding places you can visit in Central America — dramatic Mayan ruins towering in the jungle with monkeys and toucans in the trees above you!

  • Transfer back to Flores for your domestic flight to Guatemala City, and onward international connection.
