Do guinea pigs like to be held?

Actually no. If you sit them in your lap and give them some freedom without holding them, they will actually get used to you. You wanna let them be free in your lap for about a half hour and then you can pick them up and hold them but they prefer not to be held. I would know because I have 12 guinea pigs so no they don't like to be held.
