What a wonderful experience! Etnica organized a trip allowing me to see and do that which I could never have done just traveling on my own. From the beginning they were responsive and friendly, and throughout the trip they were there to answer any questions that popped up. The trip Etnica designed surpassed my wishes to meet, support and learn from local artisans, to stay in places prioritizing sustainable practices, and to practice my Spanish. I will never forget my trip and have Etnica to thank for making it so special! Thank you, Etnica!

We worked with Etnica to provide transportation services for a group of students and leaders from Canada. Sofia was super professional and highly responsive from the very first moment we reached out. Our driver, Dany Garcia, was absolutely amazing. A super skilled driver who became like one of the family during the course of our travels. He was flexible, prompt, and professional. He kept us safe for 10 days and we were sad to say goodbye. We would definitely work with Etnica again for transportation services in Guatemala.

Sofia and etnica were fantastic in organizing my family's trip to Tikal. She was very responsive to my email inquiries, and very detail-oriented in her planning. I felt 100% confident in her communication and the plans that she made for us, which included ground transport, flights, accommodation, and activities. The cost was very reasonable and similar to what we would have paid had we done the planning ourselves. As it was, Sofia took care of everything and we could sit back and relax knowing that the planning was in good hands. I would highly recommend her services for any trip planning and organizing.

I had a truly incredible experience in Guatemala - and I have Pablo and the Etnica team to thank for it! Pablo worked closely with me to design a custom trip for my friend and me, taking into consideration our logistical preferences, interests, time window, and budget. As the primary planner for my friend's and my trip, I was in frequent communication with Pablo, and I was impressed by his expertise, professionalism, warmth, and dedication. It is clear that he is passionate about what he does, and wants his travelers to experience the best of what Guatemala has to offer! During our trip itself, everything was smooth, efficient, and executed perfectly, from airport transfers / transportation, food and cultural recommendations, and comfortable, conveniently-located accommodations. All of our guides were incredibly friendly, treating us like friends rather than "tourists"; in fact, I felt that my interactions with the locals were perhaps the best part of this whole experience. At the end of the trip, I remained in Guatemala solo, while my friend returned to the states. During this time, I continued to take tours and explore Guatemala per Pablo's recommendations, and I felt safe, met incredible people, and gained a huge appreciation for the culture and people. I will recommend Etnica to my friends and family with great enthusiasm, and I can't wait to return! Thank you for everything, Pablo! -Kim from NYC

I traveled as a teacher with students and can say with full sincerity that our tour guide, Pablo, exceeded every expectation I had for the trip! Not only did my students see beautiful tourist attractions and learn about the history of those places, but the best was them having multiple opportunities to meet and spend time getting to know people and their different ways of life all across the country. Having chaperoned educational tours with various companies, I can easily say that this one facilitated the best cultural learning and human connections for myself and my students. Many thanks, Etnica, for the experience and the memories!
