Full description
Discover the charms of 3 of the 4 major cities of Guatemala, all in one day. Get to know Iximché (the first capital of Guatemala), Ciudad Vieja and Antigua Guatemala. Today's trip combines Spanish Colonial and Mayan influence, and you'll visit sites that will immerse you in the area’s enthralling history. Learn from watching the indigenous people that still visit Iximché, and if we are very lucky, we will witness a real Mayan ceremony that takes place in Iximché. We will begin the day with a transfer from your hotel in Guatemala City or Antigua Guatemala, to the archaeological site of Iximché. Upon arrival we will take a guided visit to Iximché: the first capital of Guatemala. We will then transfer to the colonial city of Antigua Guatemala, where we will enjoy lunch at a restaurant in the city. Whilst here we will visit some of the most important and significant attractions of the city, including Antigua’s most beautiful churches, monasteries and convents. After a day of sightseeing and new experiences, you will be returned to your hotel for a much needed rest!

Carmen was my guide on this solo tour. She is a great story teller and gave me all kinds of historical information! Iximche was truly stunning, and we went there first before the rain started and saw a Mayan ceremony, too. Antigua was beautiful and all the locations we stopped in were very interesting! It was pouring by that time, so Carmen drove between stops and I truly appreciated that. Had a nice lunch and she gave me a couple souvenirs, which was so sweet! The magnet is on my refrigerator Carmen! Muchisimas gracias por todo!

Sovereign guidance and relaxed traffic participation

The routes to the two day's destinations were covered with relaxed swimming in traffic. At the two destinations, the sites visited were visited and described with reasonable time so that it did not become too much. The recommended restaurant in Antigua with typical dishes offers an appealing selection at reasonable prices.
