About
Take a stroll with Due South Travels through the Antigua market's labyrinth of stalls and vendors, selling anything and everything you can imagine! This is a truly authentic experience. We will discuss the different things you see, and sample some exotic fruits and Guatemalan sweets. The market shapes many locals' way of life and schedule here, and its importance will be discussed. You can try your hand at making your own tortillas also! Then, we'll stop for lunch at a sit-down market eatery and discuss traditional Guatemalan cuisine. Afterwards, you'll be given a curated list of Antigua's tastiest restaurants for you to continue your cuisine experience on your own. Meet your English-speaking guide in central park. Lunch not included, but averages Q20-Q35 per meal.

Valerie is so knowledgeable about her adopted home of Antigua, I learned so much from her in the short time I spent on the tour. She knows both history and recent events, which gave me a lot of context I wouldn’t have otherwise had for the current culture of Antigua. I ended up getting sick partway through the tour and she took amazing care of me and followed up. Highly recommend anyone to book with Due South, I will certainly be using them again next time I’m in Guatemala!

Great tour for the price. It was interesting learning about Antigua and the history behind it. We then got to visit the market and sample some fruit, hand-made tortillas, and a local dish. Overall would recommend!

We spent the day with Valerie and Elizabeth learning all about Guatemalan culture and cuisine. These ladies gave us many tips for navigating Antigua and even provided a list of their favorite foodie spots. The best part was walking through the local market and making tortillas with a local family. We tasted fruits and foods indigenous to Guatemala and ate what’s called the national dishes. Highly recommended tour and very thankful for all the information.

Thanks for touring the market with us Erica! We are still impressed that you two made the BEST tortillas out of any of our guests so far :) You have a new claim to fame. Come back soon, and we look forward to keeping in touch.
