Exciting day trips

Thanks to Guatemala's compact size, you don't need to spend entire weeks seeing the best sights the country has to offer. Short day tours are available to incredible places such as the Mayan ruins of Tikal, around Antigua City, out to the Heritage-listed Copan and to the Pacaya Volcano.

You don't even need to pick just one for the day, with plenty of tours that combine multiple sights into one jam-packed day of sightseeing. These tours allow you to do more than just see the places, thanks to knowledgeable guides who are happy to share the history, myths and stories about each place.

Attractions galore

It's easy to get lost amongst the many attractions in Antigua and Guatemala City. Antigua is one of America's oldest cities, boasting stunning architecture that is best learned about on a tour. The city is full of cultural sights such as San Francisco Church and the famous arch of Santa Catalina.

Back in Guatemala City the attractions keep coming with national landmarks including the National Palaca of Culture, Civic Centre and the Metropolitan Cathedral. A sightseeing tour grants you access to all the biggest sights, while teaching you about the history and significance of each one.
