Experience Guatemala Tours

Experience Guatemala tours
Few people who come to Guatemala get to see the way most Guatemalans live or have an opportunity to understand the reality of this beautiful yet complicated country. Our tours consist of visiting local, non-touristic towns where we provide education for children who otherwise would not have access to it. Before visiting the schools, we visit local workshops, which are examples of the important local industries in that town, to give you insight into the daily life of these families.
The Experience Guatemala Tour will let you see Guatemala for both its beauty and its struggles, with 100% of profits going directly to our schools. Click here if you are interested in participating in the tour or send an email to tour@ninosdeguatemala.org.
