We are determined to recruit at least ten participants for our tour of Maya cities in the Yucatan (December 4-12), for which we have three registrants so far. To achieve this goal, we have reduced the price by $800 and extended our registration deadline to September 18. Please see the details about this and all our tours at archaeologychannel.org/tours. And please share this information with your contacts.

 

Our tour program is set apart from others by our commitment to storytelling and expert guidance. We believe that a tour should be far more than a photo-op or checking off a bucket list. For us, a tour is an opportunity to perform our nonprofit mission to tell the human story, in this case by bringing people to the real sites where history took place. We like to design unique tours not offered by others.

 

The “Ancient Maya Cities of the Yucatan” tour, led by 20-year expert archaeologist Dr. Ed Barnhart, takes us to eight different ancient Maya cities, which will yield a much firmer understanding of the urban culture of that fascinating civilization than a visit to just one or two cities. The Yucatan tour has many highlights. For example, Dzibilchaltun was inhabited continuously for 3000 years, all the way up to the Spanish arrival. Chichen Itza is spectacular, with its beautiful Temple of Kukulkan and Mesoamerica’s biggest ballcourt, big enough to fit a football field! Izamal is huge (20 square miles), with five big pyramids. Labana is full of wonderful art works. Uxmal is considered one of the most important archaeological sites of Maya culture, with many ornate buildings, including the impressive Pyramid of the Magician. The Gran Museo del Mundo Maya in Merida is a modern museum telling a comprehensive and visually fascinating story about Maya culture. And the weather in Yucatan in December is very nice!
