We were picked up by a contracted taxi driver from Antigua in the morning and dropped off at the parking garage in Chichicastenango, this was 10:45 am-ish. The garage seems tobe shared by multiple tour companies. Someone there told me to walk around town and meet the microbus later at 2 pm. We came back expecting to meet a bus of clients with a tour guide, but nobody there at 2 pm was able to reach Maya World tours on the phone. Then a bus showed up and the driver was looking for me with a misspelled name. We got on the bus, and found out the driver was not operating a day tour, he was only there to drive people to Panajachel to their hotels. He asked me how I planned to get back to Guatemala city. When we arrived at Panajachel, they told us our bus back to Guatemala City was leaving at 4 pm, which left us with just 20 minutes in panajachel. I asked them about the Maya ritual ceremony that was in the program, they said it would take a 15 minute tuktuk ride from Chichicastenango. So other than transport connections there was no tour and no service. I don't recommend this tour company. During the day i never even met anyone who self identified as representing Maya World tours.
