I, will be in contact with you and waiting at the site with water. We will begin with a short history tour of the museum and to set expectations with a fluid question and answer style. We then board a bus together and ride 10 minutes towards the site. We get off the vehicle and walk the ancient ceremonial path to the site as I explain the significance of various items along the way and build suspense for the main attractions. We enter the pyramid site, see active archaeological excavation and restoration work, ascend the pyramid and head back down to the drop-off point to take the vehicle back to the welcome site and then have a longer Q&A session. The group then boards the transport vehicle and heads back to the initial pickup point in town
