Incredible experience

Lee was a fantastic guide! He was very knowledgeable and enjoyable to talk to about Mayan history and culture on our drive to and from Iximche. This trip was part of our honeymoon and my husband’s birthday gift from me. He and I had such a great time and learned so much. We got to see Mayans conduct ceremonies as well which was interesting and surreal. It was overall an enriching experience.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Guatemala! Our guide was amazing and shared so much knowledge about these Mayan ruins and current day Mayan culture. We even got to watch a ceremony taking place at the park! I was reluctant to book as I usally do not like guided tours but this was great
