Lake Atitlan Tour Reviews

“Great for learning students!”
Reviewed May 17, 2017

I am in charge of a group of study abroad students, and happened to run into Jim while in Lake Atitlán on my own – he was very friendly and we arranged a group tour of San Juan and San Pedro for my students at the lake. Best decision ever! He recommended Jenna’s Bed and Breakfast in Panajachel, which was fantastic as well.

The breakfast alone is worth every penny! Jim and his partner Kara met us early and were with us the whole time; it was hard to say goodbye! The students loved visiting all of the cooperatives and supporting local, sustainable businesses. It was definitely a trip we will not forget, and hope to continue in the future.

Rode an open public transport under canopy of trees (surreal), dined with a local family (best mole ever), sampled many local cuisines and sweets (best ice pop and fries ever), participated in a tortilla making class, learned alternative herbal remedies with a medicine woman, visited hand weavers that use plant-based dye, met pottery artisans, explored local markets, churches, and remote villages (Concepcion is stunning) and (the highlight) spent time with an 86 year old stone artist whose energy is real and palpable. Thank you Jim and Kara for a fantastic three-day tour!

The medicinal tour in Lake Atitlan was a great learning and cultural experience. Our medical group met up with our guides in Panajachel and first went by boat to San Marcos where we met a local doctor who grows all of his products in a garden at his clinic.We sampled tea and learned about the healing properties of the different plants. Next we sailed to San Pedro and met with a Mayan healer. It was very interesting learning not just about plants, but about Mayan beliefs, history, and culture surrounding health. Our boat captain Poncho was wonderful, and our guides Kara and Jim were very knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour of this breathtakingly beautiful area to anyone who is interested in health or culture.

I met James and Kara while staying in Lake Atitlan for six weeks and was lucky enough to have them show me around the area on a great half-day hike around Santa Catarina. They were knowledgeable, kind, friendly and knew a lot about the local culture and customs. They went above and beyond to make our time in Guatemala worthwhile. They were eager to connect us with the right people and were full of local insight. Also, the guides are great – friendly, knowledgeable and easy to spend time with! Those interested in botany and/or alternative medicine should definitely consider their herbal medicine tours.

Jim and Kara are the best tour guides ever! I usually hate taking a tour because it ends up being boring and stale. But their tours take you to places other tours won’t go and it makes it way more interesting.

For example, they took me on a hike from Godinez to Santa Catarina, where you get the most excellent views of the lake, like nothing you’ve ever seen before.

They also took me on a street food trip. I was afraid of street food, thinking I would get sick, but it was so delicious and I never had a problem.

Their trips provide you with a totally different perspective of the lake. You get to see how the people there really live and you also get the benefit of Jim’s “amazing” jokes.

Don’t Miss This Adventure.

We had an awesome time on our 3-day adventure.

Lake Atitlan Tours planned out an incredible packed three days of fun that took us hiking through dense forests, terraced agriculture mountainsides, and explorations through remote indigenous villages.

Our tour guide, Jim, was great, and so knowledgeable!

He made everything fun and knew just where to go and what to do to add to our adventure.
