    “Great Experience”

    Pedro and his brother Domingo were very friendly and made excellent guides. Both know the Santa Cruz / Atitlan area impeccably. We took Spanish classes at the Santa Cruz Spanish school didn’t have enough time to take full advantage of everything available there, but we had a great trip up to the Solola market for half a day. Definitely recommend!
