* A traveler said: "The Palenque tour was unforgettable and one people of all races should experience, especially those of African decent. I paid for 2 tickets just to experience this as solo tours were not available and it did not disappoint. Victor was my tour guide and did an excellent job explaining the history of the people and answering any questions I posed. To top it off, he used his personal cellphone to capture the experience for me because my phone was rendered inoperable from the night before (water from boating). The people, food, knowledge, and energy were amazing. A top notch experience all around. Fully deserving of the 5 stars, they made me feel like family!"
