    I recently returned from a two- week trip to Guatemala with the itinerary designed by Lileana from Martsam. I arranged this tour for a group of 12 friends. We all thoroughly enjoyed the trip. All of the hotels were great- clean, comfortable and centrally located. We ended up with a good mix of activities- visiting Mayan sites, natural wonders like Lake Atitlan, some outdoor activities, and visits to indigenous markets. Everything ran very smoothly. We loved our driver Raul and our guide, Christian was wonderfully knowledgeable about EVERYTHING and very personable to boot. If I return to Guatemala I would definitely contact Martsam again.
