Meet your private guide for a walking tour about Antigua Guatemala’s history, politics, restoration efforts and stories of centuries past. In the afternoon, a bike tour exploring the local villages will give a different perspective of the locale before returning to the hotel to freshen up with a massage at the gorgeous SPA. Your private chef will be ready to wine and dine you in a beautiful colonial setting to end the day in style. Antigua
