An interesting, very worthwhile tour!

This tour covered the historic highlights of Antigua and was presented by a friendly, very knowledgeable guide: Juan Pablo. I was very surprised (and grateful!) when I learned that he traveled all the way from Guatemala City to give a tour only to me! I would have missed so much important and interesting information if it wasn't for this tour! (I tried seeing a couple of the museums on my own but got so much less information from that effort.)
