Guatemala Luxury Tours

A fascinating private journey through sacred lands

TAILOR-MADE TOURS GUATEMALA

Your Guatemala luxury tour begins in Antigua, the perfect introduction to this colorful country. Accompanied by your expert guide, learn about the fascinating colonial history of Guatemala as you wander through the town’s charming and historic streets and explore the surrounding countryside. Next, venture into the highlands as your tailor-made tour of Guatemala continues at Lake Atitlan. The area’s striking volcanoes serve as a memorable backdrop for outdoor adventures such as kayaking on the lake, hiking between Mayan villages, or visiting shrines to local deities. Departing directly from the property’s helipad, you will be transferred to Petén by a private helicopter. En route, touch down at El Mirador, a remote, little-visited site. Nicknamed “the lost city of the Maya,” at El Mirador, you will find the largest pyramid the Mayans ever built. The following day in Petén, explore the famous Mayan ruins at Tikal. This ancient site once housed an estimated 100,000 people. Your private tour of Guatemala comes to a close the following day, with a domestic flight from Flores connecting with your international departing flight from Guatemala City.
