Taking the chance to visit the capital of Guatemala, we'll meet our Antiguan restauranteur and food experimenter Andres, who will accompany us by private transfer.
(If are one of the lucky ones to have already eaten Andres' restaurant as part of the Altamira Sunset & Dinner experience, then you'll know you're in for a culinary treat...)
On arrival to Guatemala City, we'll walk through the historic center, taking in some of the main city sights as well as a traditional bakery (naturally) for a morning snack & coffee, all before arriving to the Mercado Central.
You may wonder why we're travelling out of Antigua to go to a food market? Well, this food market is visited only really by locals, and not on the normal tourist route. This is why we have our connoisseur Andres at hand to talk us through all the Guatemalan native cuisine & ingredients.
We'll end up at the Comedor within the market, which is the dining hall for locals. Your chance to sit down and savour all that's on offer...

Your City manager will accompany you throughout this experience
Andres is our guide & host for this experience. He is Guatemalan and has been living in Antigua for many years. Before setting up Montagu restaurant, Andres was responsible for curating experiences in the area for international groups, so knows a thing or two about providing excellent hospitality.
He brings all this knowledge and experience, (including which market stalls are safe on the stomach to eat from) to create a great twist for this bespoke tour.
