Guatemala Tours & Holidays

Bienvenidos! Welcome to Guatemala – a land of ancient civilisations, steamy jungles and laidback locals.

This coffee-growing, lava-flowing, jungle-clad landscape definitely doesn’t hold back when it comes to colour – think retro chicken buses cruising down the highway, pastel-painted buildings lining the cobbled streets of historic Antigua and vibrant wares on sale at market stalls in Chichicastenango. And whether you’re cruising down the Rio Dulce to Garifuna-influenced Livingston, strolling around the quaint island of Flores in Lago Peten Itza, or trekking to the Maya ruins of Tikal, your Guatemalan adventure will unlock all but one of its highland secrets – how this Central American beauty is still largely undiscovered will continue to remain a mystery.

Heart of Guatemala

Cindy · Traveled April 2024
I have wanted to travel through Gautemala. I am an artist and have been fascinated with the textiles, colours and with Mayan culture. It is one of the few countries left where Americanization of the culture hasn't taken over. However, when I would mention travelling to Gautemala people would comment that it is not safe. To my delight I felt very safe. The roads were in good condition a d the food excellent. With the tour I learned much about Mayan culture.

Maya Encounter

Alyssa · Traveled April 2024
The Maya Encounter trip exceeded my expectations! It was my first group travel/intrepid experience and I loved it! Every day was packed with cool activities and it was the perfect balance of days with water activities and days with jungle/city activities! I learned so much about Mayan culture and got to connect with so many wonderful locals! Would recommend this trip!

Guatemala to Belize

Jane · Traveled April 2024
Guatemala & Belize were amazing countries to travel through - lovely people, very hot, tasty food, good accommodation, great balance of included & additional activities. Our group was one of the nicest I've experienced, and the tour leader (Isaias) was one of the best ever. If you do the ATM Caves, wear 2 pairs of socks!
