“With any international trip, safety and punctuality are the most important
concerns with in-country transportation services. You’re worrying the entire
flight about whether the driver will be there on time; you’re wondering
about the quality of the vehicle you’ll be traveling in; and you’re not sure
what will happen if you’re flight is delayed. Carlos does an excellent job
handling all of these concerns by providing a first-class experience. He has
new, clean, dependable vehicles that can accommodate both small and large
groups. On our last trip, our flight was delayed 5 hours, and he was there
to pick us up at 1:00am. He watched our flight, knew it was delayed, and was
there on time based on the adjusted arrival time. He provided a worry-free,
outstanding experience for trip.”

We had a great time in Guatemala, had a great time exploring this beautiful country. We found Carlos to be amazingly helpful, he fulfilled all our wishes. Always on time, showing, teaching, ready to answer our questions and to share his knowledge. He took us to places that we never had been able to reach without him. Carlos is very funny and his English is good!

“My son got married in Antigua in 2008. I was nervous about going to Guatemala, but Carlos and his team put me completely at ease. They picked us up at the airport and shuttled us to and from the wedding in town. He also arranged a day trip for our group of 10 to go to Lake Atitlan. The country was so beautiful! Thanks Carlos for making our trip memorable!”
– Billie Heatherington, Arlington, Texas
“Carlos was waiting for us at the airport with a big and welcoming smile and making our first visit to Central America both exciting and totally relaxing, especially our day trip to Lake Atitlan. We really experienced the beautiful and coulorful culture of the Guatemalan people. I can’t wait to go again.”
– Susanne Daws, Bath, England
“I came to Antigua for the first time when I was 84 years old. Carlos and his team made all the transportation arrangements, so I didn’t have to worry about anything. He picked me and my boyfriend (also in his late 80s) up at the airport and took us straight to the hotel. Carlos also arranged for a day trip to Lake Atitlan. It was so beautiful!

“I met Carlos when studying abroad in Antigua back in 2007. After leaving the most beautiful city on earth, my fiancé and I decided to get married there at Meson Panza Verde. We shared our wedding with close friends and family in the shadow of Volcan Agua. Carlos was so helpful in shuttling our family members to/from Guate City, as well as visits to the coffee plantations outside of town and Lake Atitlan. His promptness puts your mind at ease and allows for an enjoyable and reliable guide and driver.”

“I travel a lot with my job, but I’d never been to Guatemala before. I didn’t know where to go or what to do here, but then a friend told me about Carlos and GuatemalanGuide. I emailed Carlos my dates, and he set up an awesome 3 days for me. I toured the volcano, went to Lake Atitlan. Carlos even suggested good restaurants in town. I’ll definitely be back, and I’d definitely recommend Carlos.”
– Ryan D., Houston, Texas
“Our flight was running late, which made me really nervous. But Carlos had been watching the flight, so he already knew! He took us to the B&B in Antigua. He told us things we should see, things we should do. He knew so much history about Guatemala and its people. We felt so comfortable and safe with him!
– Wayne and Laverne Dewey, Houston, Texas
“I don’t speak any Spanish, so I was anxious about traveling to Guatemala. But Carlos spoke great English. He even tried to teach me a few words! He took us to the coffee plantation, but he didn’t just drive us there and drop us off. No! He personally walked around with us, pointing out important things and telling us stories – stories we’d never have heard otherwise. GuatemalanGuide’s personal touch made my trip so much better than I imagined.
– Gene Landrum, Shreveport, Louisiana
“My husband and I took our two children to Antigua just after Semana Santa. Our kids were 12 and 2 at the time. Carlos took care of everything for us. One the day trip to Lake Atitlan, our 2-year-old got carsick, so we had to adjust our plans a little. But since our trip was a private trip, it didn’t matter – Carlos never missed a beat. He stopped at a roadside mini-restaurant till she felt better, then we were off. It was so nice to be more than just a fare to Carlos and his company GuatemalanGuide. He made us feel like family. Thanks, Carlos! ¡Salud!
