We endured a rather disappointing Central America vacation recently, except for the final day when we were fortunate enough to have booked Josue through Guatemalan Adventure for a full day tour from Guatemala City.
Josue’s professionalism, humor, sensitivity, flexibility, and commitment to meeting us at our need and interest made the eight hours with him the highlight of our 12 day trip around Central America. Our needs were many, beginning with our plane’s late arrival. We feared that the tour would be cut short, which would have been understandable, but instead, Josue went far beyond the call to show us everything we wanted to see and then some! He was not only a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic Antiguan native, but also knew the best spots to take pictures, the best places to eat, the best places to shop, etc. when we were thirsty, he bought us bottles of water, when I had bought too many souvenirs, he offered to carry some. When we expressed a peculiar interest in something, he went out of his way to help us explore that interest.
The Van was spotless and comfortable, Josue’s Driving was faultless, Antigua was lovely and fascinating.
Our strong impression is that you can’t go wrong if you get Josue as your guide. The only practical criticism we could offer is that, in his great appreciation of The history of his hometown, he can be a bit too detailed when sharing the history with tourists. 😆
We so highly recommend Guatemalan adventures, at least in the case of this tour guide!
