Thank you for making our trip to Guatemala everything, and ‘more’ than we could ever expect. This was definitely the best vacation/adventure I have ever taken. Loved all the surprises and camaraderie!

The experience of sketching in the marketplace with the local ladies was eye-opening and exciting. Our accommodations were excellent, the food was very good, the landscape exotic.
