More Information

Highlights

-Getting to know a very nice historic centre of Guatemala city, our capital
-Guided by a local Guatemalan from the area who now lives in Antigua
-A walking tour in the city including some snacks and an opportunity for lunch at a very famous local eatery in the centre of Guate
-Experiencing a different view of a very bad reputation metropolis and one of its famous markets, seeing and tasting the daily life of a Guatemalan from the city

 

Description 

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 you are one of the lucky ones to have already eaten at 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 centre, taking in some of the main city sights as well as a visit to a traditional bakery  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 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...

 

Who this experience is good for

-People who like walking tour in cities
-Foodies and folks open to experiment new foods
-If you want to know a different city (this is your opportunity to see the Capital of Guatemala)
-People who like to go out of their comfort zone

 

Meet our local host

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.

 

Itinerary

Upon departing from the meet point (details on hub event), you will travel with Andres to Guatemala city (Guate as us locals call it), this takes about 45mins to an hour depending on traffic, arriving to Guate you leave the van at a parking lot and start your walking tour in the historic centre of the city, you will then visit a very famous local bakery to get a snack and coffee and continue onwards to the mercado central where you have the opportunity to try very local foods. Lunch is not included but its is an option also, and the visit to the bar at the end of the tour. A cherry on the cake that is up to you make this pit stop before heading back to Antigua. Andres is a great host and you will definitely enjoy the day in the city.

Enjoyed Seeing/Tasting A Bit of Guate City

Andres is a terrific guide, who has a great deal of knowledge to share about Guatemalan food, culture and history. Enjoyed seeing part of this vibrant city and sampling some of the best street food at the Mercado Central, a cool coffee shop (La Tacita de Plata), and a delicious bakery (Panaderia Berna). Enjoyed seeing the grand main square and some of the markets, too. Was nice to have a guide to lead us to some great spots in what was reputed to be a "fabulously ugly" city. The aesthetics of picturesque Antigua are hard to beat!
