Amazing villages surround antigua but there often forgotten. We were happy to see these villages so close yet so different from antigua. We really appreciated this off the beaten path tour. The highlights for us: Guatemalan ladies put on traditionnal clothes on us and the wonderful landscapes. It's honestly the best tour we've done in Guatemala."

* A traveler said: "The cooking class was so much fun! We took it at the La Tortilla Cooking School, we were taught by Sonia. The class had a translator and it was very throughly explained. Each person had their own little set up of a peeler, towel, and a knife and cutting board. They gave us a glass to have some wine. It was such a relaxing experience. Prior to the class, a man named Jorge took us around the market, explained to us the history and the culture of the market. He explained how the produce gets to the market, how the produce is grown, he even protected us from getting a little hustled lol. He was such a pleasure to talk too. He even explained to us about the foods and areas tourists should avoid. For example, he warned us that the fried chicken in the markets should not be consumed, as the pork fat used in the chicken may not sit well with many tourists' stomachs. The chocolate museum was also fun! We got to make our own chocolates and traditional drinks. I recommend this for anyone looking for some fun and easy things to do in Antigua. One super added bonus to this package was that our driver Henry even drove us to a peak where we could overlook Antigua and he drove us back to the market and waited for us! He was so gracious!! He really made our experience even better."

* A traveler said: "Highly, highly recommend this! El Frijol Feliz Cooking School was a great experience for any age. Chef Leivi was friendly, fun and patient with our 9 year old son. The Choco Museum was interesting and allowed us to learn a lot about the history of chocolate. Because it is primarily walking in town, ask your guide to take you to other stops along the way. We really enjoy original art and textiles. Our guide was wonderful in taking us to a few extra stops in the area."
