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

Exploring Guatemala is a one of a kind experience! If you want to be off the beaten track and fully immersed in Mayan traditions, culture, and food, this tour is a must! Absolutely sign up for the Mayan cooking class!! Spending a the first and last day of the trip exploring Antigua is a wonderful way to start and end the Guatemalan journey :)

Maya Encounter

Anna · Traveled May 2024
ATM Caves in Belize, private boat hire in Rio Dulce and the guided tour of Tikal were the absolute highlights of this trip for me. Attention future travellers: you do NOT need to pay an "exit fee" when leaving Mexico if you arrived there via a commercial flight. Just show them your flight itinerary.

Maya Encounter

Thomas · Traveled May 2024
For my first tour with Intrepid I was pleasantly surprised. Our tour guide was a complete professional and went above and beyond for every member in the group. Not having to worry about accomodation and transport gave us peace of mind and made the trip even more enjoyable.

Maya Encounter

Morgan · Traveled May 2024
This tour had everything needed for the perfect getaway. The ease and simplicity with everything taken care of by Intrepid and Adrian our tour guide was 10/10. We had the perfect amount of days at each place with add on activities so we felt we didn’t miss out on anything. This was my first intrepid tour and would definitely do another one.

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.
