We had an excellent experience. We were picked up on time from our hotel. The guide explained the tour clearly. We visited a couple of indigenous settlements around the lake, attended a demonstration of the weaving process, and had plenty of shopping opportunities. The guide was knowledgeable, courteous, and was able to keep the schedule even though it was a busy market day with a lot of traffic and people on the streets. We returned at the appointed hour.
Everything about this tour was great, our guide was extremely knowledgeable. The ride was safe. The only thing to be aware of this does include the lake in the extent of eating at a restaurant overlooking the lake. I went for the market so I didn’t mind but if you want a more immersive lake experience this might not be the tour for you.
It may seem a bit pricey but well worth it. Your guide, Lee, will take you places you would not find on your own. As a Mayan in the know he can explain everything to you. You will not be disappointed
although we came late for the ceremony. the local tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. He showed me some great spots around and its overall history of his people.
Great tour! If you are interested in learning more about mayan culture or how cristianity has merged with local religion you should definitely give it a go.
