    As an archaeology professor specializing in the Maya, I often take student groups to Guatemala for anywhere from 10-30 days. When doing so, I always use Martsam. I have also used their services to get to and from my field sites. They are an incredible company to work with. They are helpful with itineraries and flexible if plans change, even at the last minute. Their prices are excellent and my groups have always loved whatever drivers are provided. Martsam makes my trips easy to plan and run and I happily recommend anyone going to Guatemala use their services!
