You will meet your professional English speaking tour guide outside your Puerto Quetzal cruise port. You will board the comfortable, air-conditioned transportation for  a 90-minute drive to La Azotea, a distinctive rural coffee plantation founded in 1883. Here you will have 2 hours of a guided walk through the shaded plantation observing coffee plants in their various stages of growth. Colorful exhibits and dioramas will tell the story of coffee explaining the growing and processing. You will stroll through an active mill powered by a water wheel leading to the shop where you can sample several aromatic flavors with a local farmer and make a purchase or two to take home.

After a short 10 minute drive from La Azotea, you will arrive in beautiful Antigua with its alluring colonial charm. A place of rare beauty, major historical significance, and vibrant culture, Antigua remains Guatemala's must-visit destination. A former capital, the city boasts an impressive catalog of colonial relics in a magnificent setting. Streets lined with pastel facades unfold beneath three volcanoes. Many old religious and civic structures are beautifully renovated, while others retain tumbledown charm, with fragments strewn about park-like grounds.

Alongside your engaging local guide, you will learn about the colorful history of this UNESCO World Heritage Site marveling at its cobblestone streets, ruined churches, and beautifully restored homes. Founded in 1543 and abandoned in 1773, Antigua has reemerged into a delightful metropolitan area. You will marvel at landmarks such as Santo Domingo Convent and Church of La Merced, then browse the stalls of local open-air markets brimming with color and vitality. Upon completion of the guided portion of this excursion, you will have time on your own to further discover what makes Antigua a hidden gem. Your guide can point you in the direction of cafes, shops and other highlights you might want to visit.

At the conclusion of your excursion, you will be returned, in plenty of time to your Puerto Quetzal cruise port.

Mixed feelings.

First I will say that the Coffee Plantation was great. We learned so much and appreciate our morning cup of coffee so much more. Unfortunately, the mode of transportation was sub-par. We enjoyed sharing our tour with another couple, but fitting five, mostly slim adults (one driver), into a compact care was very uncomfortable. We had a hour and half drive over bumpy roads to and from the port. My hips ached the next day. The driver was safe and got us where we needed to go but I would not consider him a tour guide compared to others we have had. He conversed with the passenger but those in the back seat could not hear what information was shared. I would recommend the coffee plantation but different transportation.

Being a coffee maniac myself I couldn't believe I found this tour, I booked it and boy I am glad I did. I had high expectations and they lived up to each of them. You get to see how the beans are grown and how the process of making it occurs. The city of Antigua was very old fashioned colonial it was like being taken back in time. I 100% recommend this tour. Only regret was not buying more of the bags of whole beans to take back.
