  1. :

    Definitely recommend this small group tour. Visited much of the Lake, passing thru many Mayan villages & the hotel very nice clean and comfortable. My highlight of the trip, was relaxing time after the sauna and the boat tour!

  2. :

    Many people visit lake Atitlan every year. Without a guide explaining to you everything you are seeing you won’t be able to appreciate this wonderful place. We really enjoyed the threat by our hotel host!

    Thank you Tours Atitlan, you have done it again! This is our second trip that Domingo Solis from Tours Atitlan has helped us organize. In advance of our construction mission trip, we took a couple extra days to learn and see more about Guatemala. Domingo organized our private airport pick-up and transportation to Xela (Quetzaltenango), hotel accommodations at the Modelo, and 2 days of private bilingual touring of the Highlands of Guatemala. Voltan did not disappoint us on any of this, we were completely satisfied with every aspect of our trip! Our guide and driver Elí met us at the airport and drove us to our hotel in Quetzaltenango. The next couple days Elí was our guide while Ivan became our driver. We visited Quetzaltenango and many of the surrounding municipalities (Socaja, Almolonga, San Francisco el Alto Market, Xecul, Zunil, and Fuentes Georgina’s). Ivan was a good driver and knowledgeable about Guatemala. He will brighten your day with his smile and fun attitude. Elí is also a good driver and is knowledgeable about his country. He has passion for Guatemala and its history and he enjoys sharing it with others. We learned so much from him. Following our scheduled tours, we appreciated all of their recommendations and suggestions for us to adventure on our own with. Quezaltenango is a beautiful and active city and we really enjoyed all of our time here – our stay at the the Modelo, touring the city center, seeing the farming, the market, relaxing in the hot springs, as well as the many beautiful churches! This is not our first time to Guatemala, and many of the people we have become acquainted with are from Xela. It was especially nice to see the city our friends so proudly call their home. Thank you Tours Atitlan – Domingo, Elí, and Evan, we really appreciate your making our trip so very special! We look forward to our next adventure to Guatemala!
