My wife and I used Martsam for a six day, personally guided tour of Peten and Coban areas, combining birdwatching, Mayan ruins, and local culture. The Martsam people did a fantastic job of arrangements, guides, and drivers - more than meeting our expectations. For the services they provoded the price was reasonable. An amazing, exciting combination of birdwatching, archaeology, Mayan... More

We used the services of Martsam travels for planning a custom tour to Guatemala. Mary helped us finalize the itinerary and hotel selections. Right from the beginning she was very prompt with her responses that helped us plan the trip in a short duration. The guides, drivers were very attentive and helpful too. Excellent staff! But please keep in mind... More

My wife and I were looking for the kind of in-between vacation in Guatemala. You know, relax a little, but also see some things and do a not-too-difficult walk/hike here and there. We had about 8 days of vacation to work with, and had no idea how to go about things. A friend told us to contact Martsam Tours. Martsam... More

We were a group of 5 arriving from Belize Airport and spending 2 days in Tikal. They arranged every detail of the trip (except the hotel, as I had a preference). Not only did they organize everything perfectly, they also gave us little tips along the way that made the trip so much better. Like asking the hotel for a... More

Thanks to him we even learned a little bit Spanish 😉 Alfonso and his brother Philippo did everything they could to make the sleeping places as comfortable as possible.... More

Just recently we visited Guatemala with Martsam Travel. My husband and I have travel extensively using different agencies, and I personally have work in the hospitality industry for a number of years. Our trip was kind of last minute, and Lily at Martsam Travel was able to acommodate all of our requests. From Antigua to lago de Atitlán, Chichicastenango, cooking... More
