How to sign up for a
Snapshot Tour:

  1. Follow the instructions on the signup page to obtain and complete a Snapshot Tour application.
  2. Return your completed application with a non-refundable US$200 deposit to secure your spot on the tour. You can send the application by mail along with a check or return the application online (via a desktop email program such as Outlook or through a web-based email like Yahoo) and make a deposit through our secure online payment system.
  3. You will receive email confirmation that your application and deposit have been accepted and that you have a secured place on the tour. Along with the confirmation, you will receive advice concerning immunizations, packing, and more.
  4. After you receive confirmation of your place on the tour, you will purchase your own plane ticket to Guatemala City (GUA). We offer information to assist you in finding lower-priced airfares. You'll need to email or mail us your flight itinerary, and we'll make arrangements for your transportation from/to the airport in Guatemala City!
  5. You'll pay your remaining balance for the land portion of the trip (hotels, food, travel within Guatemala) by Jan. 1/July 1 (depending on the date of your tour). You may make a payment by check or pay through our secure online payment system.
  6. You will need a passport with more than 6 months to expiration at the time of travel to enter Guatemala. Many post offices have the necessary application, or you can download an application from the U.S. State Department’s website.
