Owner description: We offer a variety of cultural, adventure and ecotourism tour packages in Guatemala with exciting itineraries designed for individual visitors, small and large groups. Due to our many years of experience in the travel industry, we offer competitive prices with no compromise on quality. We are highly recommended by our customers on Trip Advisor an award that recognizes the quality of our services and hard work and dedication of our team. In 2016, we decided to change our company name to Voltan Adventures. Voltan is the Mayan God of the Earth NOT to be confused with Votan (the Mayan God of War). Over the years our company has developed a stellar reputation as one of the best tour operators within Guatemala. Because our base of operations is at Lake Atitlan and our former company name was Tours Atitlan some people would confuse our company with a competitor whose name is similar. We noticed a trend. Numerous tour operators were incorporating the lake into their company name and this was leading to much confusion. Because our company is Mayan owned and locally operated we decided it would be best to embrace our culture and take a more distinctive name where there can be no confusion. So welcome to Voltan Adventures. To read about our company’s past reviews please see our customers Trip Advisor reviews under our old company name: Tours Atitlan, and after your trip with us, please post a review under our new name so we can begin a new tradition!

My husband and I used this tour company for airport transfers and the Pacaya Tour. The airport drivers were perfectly on time and made sure everything ran smoothly. The Pacaya tour was phenomenal! Marco is an outstanding tour guide and I cant recommend him enough! The guide helper we had, Rachel was very informative and such a sweet person! Please use this company while in Antigua, it was one of the best experiences weve ever had!

Can't say enough about how excellent our experience was with Voltan Adventures. We hosted a group Antigua walking tour & transfer to Lake Atitlan and every step of the way was perfectly handled - from our initial communications by email and phone to establish what we wanted to do, to experiencing the excursion itself.

Our tour guide Isaias was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic about his country and excited about sharing it with us. He was always attentive, making sure that we were enjoying every aspect of our tours, and adjusting where needed. Great sense of humour, too :)

We always felt that we were in safe and professional hands, with complete trust in how the day unfolded. Highly recommend, and would definitely work with Voltan Adventures again.

What an amazing company!!!

We spend the most amazing 3 weeks' vacation in Guatemala and loved every moment of it, mostly because we've been taken good care by Pedro and his wonderful stuff from Voltan Adventures. We have three children, and our eldest son was sick during our trip in Guatemala. Pedro and his Brother Chay, who was our guide, were so flexible and sensitive. They organized for us a meeting with an expert doctor and at the same time changed the itinerary so we can all still enjoy our vacation and get to know Guatemala. Voltan Adventures will provide you the best service you can imagine: professional's guides, best logistic, responsible drivers and great vehicles all with the warmest attitude. They can organized for you any trip you wish from very touristic and popular places to the most unique and hidden ones. Best choice we have ever made. Highly recommended!

We love you all

If shopping and local history are your preferred activities, this is the tour. Our excellent guide, Dina Salpor, picked us up at our hotel in Pana and escorted us to an awaiting boat for our trip across Lake Atitlan. Dina expertly guided us to a wide variety of experiences from the little coffee shop, chocolatier, weavers, medicinal plants and several local coops of painters. We had a delicious lunch at Comedor Elenita, The highlight of our tour was our personable and knowledgeable tour guide, Dina.

We travelled to Guatemala for 5 days with Volan adventures, all was organized excellent, driver and guides were awesome, well done and thanks for a great Guatemala experience. I would like to emphasis Noach which guided us at Tikal and added an animal experience to our tour which we weren't expecting.
