    Wonderful Adventures – Knowledgaable and Friendly Guides!

    I organized three tours with Tours Atitlan this past month and each one was wonderful. The first was a hike to Pico de Cielo for the yoga group I took to Villa Sumaya. Isaias and Domingo were awesome. They were joyful, spoke perfect English, were knowledgeable on many of the plants and animals along the way, took us into the home and kitchen of a local Mayan family. I then organized two tours for my family (wife and two children – 13 & 10) with Isaias: horseback riding around San Pedro volcano and ziplining at the Panajachel Reserve. He is a lot of fun to be around, sincerely wants you to have an amazing time, and went out of his way to help us with transportation back to Antigua and then on to Tikal. Highly recommended! When I go back, I will definitely use their excellent services again!

    “Hike to Pico de Cielo”

    Our hike with Pedro to Pico de Cielo was one of the highlights of our trip to Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. We had the opportunity to experience traveling through Guatemala as the locals do, and we met local Maya families as they were working together harvesting food and preparing it for market. The beauty of the countryside, the laughter of the Maya people, and the views of Lake Atitlan from Pico de Cielo have stayed with me to this day, along with stories told by Pedro about the Maya people. This adventure really is a gem, as is Pedro.

    “Fantastic tour and tour guide!”

    A group of 7 of us booked a tour “El Pico de Cielo” with Adventure Atitlan. Pedro was a fantastic guide and the tour was everything it was promised to be and so much more. The hike and the fantastic views from the “Pico” were amazing, but the best part was Pedro’s knowledge of the area, the history and the culture. We received so much more than we anticipated and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the day. Pedro went out of his way to be sure we were all comfortable and happy.

    I highly recommend this tour and this tour agency!!
