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.
