Did the "Easy Antigua" tour. Nothing easy about it. Long bus ride to town (90min) Short visit to Jade factory and then they drop you off at a square where you are bombarded with street vendors. and then a very long ride back to the ship. After that tour we decided only to take tours that were 3 hours of less. Read Less

We took the Antigua on your own. They never should haver ran this cruise that day. Anitigua was jammed with people due to a festival. It was utter chaos, and the tour operator was disorganized and nearly left us and several people behind. it was hot and humid and we had to rush for 2.5 miles of walking without water, even though they said it would be 4.5 blocks. They said they'd leave us behind if we were not at the designated point on time. Lots to complain about this in this texcursion Read Less

Took the Rum tasting tour and walk-about of the town. Took bus to the city. There were religious observations going on but these added to the allure of the visit.

We took a bus ride outside the city to a coffee plantation. It was very interesting. We were lucky enough to have the owner as our guide. She inherited the farm from her father who inherited it from his grandmother, her great-grandmother. ... Read More
We took a bus ride outside the city to a coffee plantation. It was very interesting. We were lucky enough to have the owner as our guide. She inherited the farm from her father who inherited it from his grandmother, her great-grandmother. We opted to change to this tour instead of the city tour we originally booked. There was a large celebration in the city and the cruise line was warning against pickpockets in the large crowd. We didn't want to deal with that. Read Less

-Puerto Quetzal Guatemala - After reading on the state department website that this was a level 2 place to not visit, we had decided to not do an excursion. there is a really big market area right at the port area where you can really walk around safely. But after being at the port for a bit.. we started chatting with a gentleman who offered us a tour to Antigua. We did go, and am glad we did. You fell like you stepped back in time 200 years in Antigua. There is gorgeous architecture, and a volcano well within view. We ate at a great little bar and had the best tuna sandwich ever! Tuna is one of Guatemala's major exportations, so it was delicious! It is not the safest place, and the tour operator had extra security following us around the markets and streets.. but we never felt un-safe. They did a great job and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there and are very happy we "risked it" and went. Read Less

We did the RCCL excursion "Auto Safari Chapin' which was a drive-through safari with a walking part through the rest of the zoo after. We were on a giant coach bus, which made for some 'interesting' navigating through the narrow gateways between exhibits. Also, if you were on the 'wrong' side of the bus in a particular exhibit area, you didn't get pictures. Smaller vans would have probably been better. At one point, the bus let us off to feed the giraffes from raised platforms. Guests could buy branches with leaves to feed the giraffes for 2 dollars. That was fun. The walk through part of the zoo had a lot of different animals, and some 'cats' I have never seen before at zoos in the US. Plus, the ride to the zoo was only about 45 minutes, while most other excursions had rides of at least 90-120 minutes just to get to the location. Read Less
