Antigua Guatemala Day Trip 

On the day of your tour, we'll pick you up from your hotel in Guatemala City and head south to the former capital: Antigua Guatemala.

Enjoy a guided tour around the city's most iconic places of interest, discovering why it played such an important role in the history of Central America. We'll take in the Spanish Baroque architecture, the legacy of the city's colonial heritage, and contemplate the colourful façades of the churches and palaces.

We'll visit the most beautiful landmarks in Antigua Guatemala, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site: Parque Central, the Cathedral, the Santa Catalina Arch and the La Merced Church. What's more, our guide will reveal the fascinating stories hidden around each corner of the city.

At the end of our guided tour, we'll make the return journey to Guatemala City.
