The Experience Guatemala Tours are a unique opportunity to get off the beaten tourist path, and see first-hand the beautiful, yet complicated reality of everyday life for most Guatemalans.
The first tour consists of a short trip to Ciudad Vieja on a local 'chicken' bus, a visit to a chicken bus factory, a visit to a coffin workshop, a walk in the neighbourhood where many of our students live and finally a tour of our beautiful school, Nuestro Futuro.
The second tour consists of a short trip on a local 'chicken' bus, a visit to a carpentry workshop and trying your hand at making a Quitapena(worry doll)with one of the mothers from our school. We will then head to our newest school El Porvenir before heading back to Antigua in a private shuttle.
The cost of the tour is Q200pp for our Nuestro Futuro school and Q250pp for El Porvenir.
All profits go directly to our projects. Tours leave Tuesdays (El Porvenir) and Thursdays (Nuestro Futuro) at approximately 8:00am from Antigua). Private tours are also available on request.
