Welcome to Guatemala

The Country of Eternal Spring

Guatemala, the Country of Eternal Spring, is very rich in culture and nature. Come and see for yourself: color is everywhere, from lush, green foliage and tranquil blue lakes, to the multicolored costumes of the Indigenous people. While traveling in Guatemala, visitors can see and admire traditional rituals and ceremonies, Pre-Hispanic and colonial monuments, landscape and nature parks. Altiplano's Tour Operator will help you see it all easily, safely and economically!

ABOUT US: Altiplano's Tour Operator is proud to be 100% Guatemalan. We have many years experience working in tourism, having helped many thousands of visitors see the sites of Guatemala. Our guides are locals, highly-trained to give our clients the best quality service. Our brand new insured vehicles provide a secure and comfortable ride on the Guatemalan roads.

We are located in the second largest city of Guatemala: Quetzaltenango, also known as Xela (pronounced “shayla”). From our base here we are able to make excursions to many of the best sites (and sights) in Guatemala: Volcanoes Santa Maria and Tajamulco, Mayan ruins like Takalik Abaj and Tikal, highland Mayan villages such as Zunil and Momostenango, beautiful hot springs, traditional markets and much more.

Come visit Xela...

Thank you for the great service and for working with me to make my hike to Santa Maria possible. Daniel was a wonderful guide and the nice weather helped for us to see the top of Santa Maria and the eruption of Santiaguito.
Thank you again !
I highly recommend this service.

Muchas gracias a mis amigos de Altiplanos por ayurdarme a planificar excursiones y transporte cerca Xéla. Después el mercado en Chichi, me fui a San Pedro La Laguna para la noche. Fue maravilloso ver el lago de nuevo y sin problemas para encontrar un minibús a Guate.

Fui en Fuentes Georginas hoy. Es Increible! un paraiso en las neblinas. Con agua mucho caliente 48 grados! cuidado, y otras un poco menos caliente. Es bueno por mi salud, mi cuerpo, mi cerebro y mi alma, verdad. Necesitas ir al Fuente Georginas con Altiplano´s Tours!

Sorry it's taken me so long to write...my trip to Takalik Abaj in January was simply incredible! William is a great guide, friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable in Mayan archaeological history. I was lucky enough to have a private tour of the site and was able to practice my Spanish!

I highly recommend Altiplanos, un negocio Quetzalteco (and the trip to Takalik Abaj!). It is a lovely family-owned business, best of luck and hope to return soon!

Muchas gracias William!

Altiplano's provided excellent service. We wanted a custom cultural tour and unlike other companies they were willing to work with us to put it together. William is a great guide and gave us fantastic insight into life in Guatemala. Locally owned and family run. Highly recommended!

Hasta Luego
Pam and Barry
