multiple, Guatemala City
On our expert-led archaeology tour to Guatemala, you will come to understand the culture of the present-day Maya and learn about the spectacular accomplishments of the ancient Maya. Guatemala is an awe-inspiring country where you will find natural beauty, with highland lakes ringed by volcanic cones and steamy jungles teaming with wildlife and birds. Delightful colonial architecture with flashes of highland culture contrast with brightly colored markets and impressive Maya ruins. On this tour you will see, interact, and experience Maya culture up close and personal and get an authentic taste of Guatemala that most tourists don’t. Hike to volcanoes, zip line through jungles, play in waterfalls, and explore Maya ruins with a Guatemala expert.
