About Victor...

Buenos dias! My name is Victor and I am here to help you. My passion is helping tourist families when they visit the beautiful country of Guatemala. I can help with many things... airport pick-up and drop off, tours of Guatemala City and Antigua (other locations can be negotiated), run errands, help with getting a sick baby to the doctor... You name it and I am there.

I am a family man and know how important it is to feel comfortable and safe, especially when traveling in a foreign country. I drive a minivan and have car seats for your little ones. Please contact me (info on the right) to schedule your visits in our beautiful country. Bienvenido a Guatemala!

Just a note to say that Victor lived with my husband Phil & me and our 2 children when he first came to the U.S. as a student.

He didn't speak English and we didn't speak Spanish so we had an interesting time of learning each other's languages.

We taught him to drive in a churchyard and down a country road. He taught us that we could laugh more than we ever thought possible.

Victor is and will always be a part of our family. A smile has always been a part of his charm as well as the ability to make one laugh and feel at ease. His integrity speaks for the way he was reared by his loving family in Guatemala.

Victor came highly recommended to us by a few other adoptive families. Victor took us on a tour of Guatemala City, and it was great! He is very dependable, flexible, and friendly. He speaks English very well, but was also very generous in allowing me to practice my Spanish with him! We had a wonderful tour and felt very safe. Victor was very helpful with whatever we needed (he was invaluable during a stop at a local bank!) and introduced us to his favorite restaurant, Kacao, which we loved! Thank you Victor for a wonderful time, we will definitely use your services again!

Victor is AMAZING!!! We can not say enough good things about him. We met him on our visit trip the last week of Dec. Our flight was over two hours late arriving in Guatemala but he was still there waiting with a sign for us. We were going to use him for translation with our fostermom. He waited two hours with us but she was delayed in arriving and victor had another appointment so he had to leave. We felt so bad for making him wait he was nothing but kind and gracious. We also took the city tour with him. He was a very knowedgeable guide. We are so glad we were able to see more of Guatemala City then just the hotel. We can't wait to see him again on our pick up trip!!

We contacted Victor to do a tour of Guatemala City while we were there on our pick up trip. Victor was busy that day so Victor's partner "right hand man" took us on our tour and I have to say IT WAS WONDERFUL! I would totally recommend Victor for anything!

Victor was invaluable to my mother and I on our recent trip to visit the little girl my husband and I are adopting. He took us to Antigua where we were staying for a few days and when we had finished our stay in Antigua he picked us up and took us back to our hotel in Guatemala City. He also took us on a wonderful tour of Antigua that we enjoyed tremendously. He was very knowledgeable about Guatemala and its history and he made the tour very interesting and entertaining.

Most importantly to my Mom and I, was the fact that Victor really took good care of us. One day while we were in Antigua, my Mom and I (and my little girl) were standing on a corner waiting for our taxi to pick us up after some shopping. All of a sudden there was Victor in his van! He had seen us and wanted to make sure we had a ride back to our hotel. We explained that we were waiting for our taxi to pick us up and he told us he would drive around for a few minutes and then return to make sure the taxi had picked us up. Well, our taxi did show up but needless to say my Mom and I were very impressed and grateful that Victor had shown such care and concern for our welfare. If we had not had Victor to act has our guide during the trip I doubt we would have felt as comfortable getting out and about as much as we did. Because of Victor we truly had a wondefully memorable trip.

Victor is a gem of a person and I cannot recommend him highly enough. We will definitely use his services again.

Victor is wonderful!! My husband & I highly recommend him if you are thinking of touring Antigue. He even picked us up at our hotel at 4:30am to bring us to the airport when we brought our daughter home.

Victor took my family and I on a trip to tour Antigua while we were in Guatemala on our pick up trip to bring home our son. We were amazed at his knowledge of Guatemala and he never hesitated to answer any questions we had along the way. He catered to our family to make sure we had a wonderful trip!! His services are above and beyond and we would certainly use his again if we were to ever return to Guatemala. My son took right up with him too! Couldn't recommend his servies more!! He's reasonable with his fees and is worth so much more than he charges! The Bradley Family

We were in Guatemala exactly 4 years ago bringing home our baby boy. Victor was fabulous! He took us on a day trip to Antigua. We had a picture of our son with his foster family in GC and we wanted to go to the same spot for a family picture, so Victor took us right there! Our son ended up with an ear infection and Victor even took us to the doctor! He was absolutely terrific with my son(who was 8 months old) and my daughter (who was 9). His English is fantastic, he is very friendly and easy to get along with, and he will make you feel safe. Even though he has done lots of tours, you will feel like you are the only family that he has driven around Guatemala. We have many pictures in our scrapbook with Victor. He was such an important part of an incredible time in our life! Guatemala is beautiful and if you want to see it the right way, have Victor show you around!

Victor helped our family for 6 years while I was in the process of adopting my daughter. Without him, I could've never gotten my daughter home. He made 2 trips to locate Maya's birth Mom for me. Each trip was 10 hours one way. If not for Victor, Maya would've never come home. He spent countless hours searching until he found the birth Mom. He took me to appts. when I traveled to Guatemala all those years, along with my daughters. We always knew we were safe when we were with Victor. We never traveled any where without Victor. He translated for us, drove for us, took care of my daughters. He was always there for us when we needed him. All I had to do was call him. There is no one I would recommend more highly. Victor is a family man, a good honest man, who is reliable and will have your best interest at heart.

Victor helped our family for 6 years while I was adopting my oldest daughter. If not for him, I would've never gotten my daughter home. He located her birth Mom for her DNA appt., her court appearances, etc. He searched countless hours and never gave up until he found her. Victor is the most reliable wonderful person you could ever find to help you and your family. We never traveled anywhere in Guatemala without Victor. He drove us everywhere we needed to go and I always knew my daughters and I were safe while we were in Victor's care. You will not find anyone better than Victor to help you and your family.

We had the time of our life. Victor is so helpful, just ask and he will take care of it. We appreciate his integrity, we felt so confident with him. He became a friend...looking forward to come back one day!
