Here's what our clients have had to say
about Maya Expeditions!
YAXHA - TOPOXTE: Eco-Lodge El Sombrero. You were absolutely right, it is a magic place. Gabriela is a wonderful woman. She went out of her way to show us around Topoxté and Yaxha. We were astonished to see the size of Yaxha and stood in awe when watching the sunset from the top of Temple 216. Gerhard Vehlhaber
"Your logistical arrangements, crew, equipment, and overall
leadership were superb. You run a really first-class operation.
Others need to know how good you guys are. "
"Our travels with yoU underlined your excellent
handling, in comfortable style, of rafting trips down the
Usumacinta. Your river guides were among the most accomplished
and skillful of any we've seen. There is no other tour group
that inspires as much confidence, and we look forward to a
pleasant and a productive collaboration at Piedras Negras."
Stephen Houston Ph.D. Co-Director, Piedras Negras

"I want to tell you what a fine trip we had on the "USU"
with your company "Maya Expeditions". It was everything
that I expected, and more... what else can I say - the trip
of a lifetime, especially for one with a long running interest
in the Mayan culture." Vernon Harris, Atlanta,

river expedition. "I'll follow you anywhere" March,

river at archaeological site of Yaxchilán.
"Thank you for arranging such an exciting trip for us
on the Usumacinta... I have been reading some more books concerning
the Mayan civilization and the Mayan code. Having been at
some of the sites brings to life for me the Mayans."

America. Unforgettable. November, Steven D. Hennessy,

The rafting trip was awesome by the way. Great crew you have working for you and your driver is the best!! Cynthia
"Thank you, I don't think I've enjoyed any trips I've
done as much as the ones we did on the Cahabon. The combination
of scenery, jungle, rapids and side hikes/caving - and general
atmosphere of the trips you run really is unique and wonderful.
I haven't done any trips that I have enjoyed as much."

"My raft trip [on the rio Naranjo] was a blast and I
thought Ariel was a wonderful guide. I am planning another
trip in March or April and hope to be able to raft the Cahabon
then. Once again thanks for a great experience and a great
guide. Carmen Kamas Wieting, D.D.S. Houston, Texas
río Naranjo: se nota que son personas totalmente calificadas
y preparados para cualquier contingencia que se pudera dar
a lo largo de cualquier expedición. P.D. esta opinion
no es personal, ya que fue consultada con casi todos los miembros
de dicha expedición y todos los consultados estuvimos
de acuerdo." Gustavo Anzueto, Guatemala
"I would recommend Mayan Expeditions strongly. The staff
were friendly, humorous and always extremely helpful. For
the Cerro Tecpan experience, go Maya Expeditions!" Paul Carter a British Traveller
"Our stay at Tikal was incredible, despite the heat,
the long uphill climb to the central Plaza, and the sleep
interrupting roars of the howler monkeys. Those monkeys sounded
like they must be as big as dinosaurs!! I can say without
hesitation that we were very pleased with your services, and
would with confidence recommend to others interested in travel
to this region that they take advantage of your knowledge
and connections." Robert Petit-Clerc
"We had a nice climbing by Maya Expeditions. Thank you
very much for our climbing of Volcano Tacana and Volcano Tajumulco
to your staff given for us by the nice hospitality." Nobuo Kuwahara, businessman Osaka, Japan.
COPAN: The trip was really worthwhile and we greatly enjoyed both the flight to the Honduras border and the drive to Ruinas Copán. Good guide. Excellent museum onsite. Gerhard Vehlhaber
