The culture of Guatemala draws in visitors from all over the world; an energetic collision of ancient Maya civilisation and Spanish colonisation is marked by the warmth and passion of the local people. This superb 10 day tour will take you to the heart of Antigua, where multicoloured markets are set against ornate XVI century churches and world-class chocolate reigns supreme, to the tranquil shores of Lake Atitlan, and finally to the setting sun at Yaxha. On the way, marvel at panoramic views of striking volcanoes from the summit of Cerro de Oro, discover the lifestyles of loom weavers to beekeepers amongst Tz’utujil Mayans, gaze into the crystalline waters of Crater Azur, and uncover the intriguing history behind a number of perfectly preserved Mayan ruins.

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
