Testimonials from Our Students:
“The World of the Maya travel seminar was actually a life-changing experience. It introduced me to a culture and lifestyle that I barely knew existed. It gave me a love for travel, and a particular love for history and culture, which I know I will continue to have for the rest of my life.”

“The World of the Maya Mexico Travel Seminar was one of the most enjoyable experiences of my college career thus far. I met some wonderful people and learned so much about the history of a lost civilization that I couldn't have learned by reading a book or sitting in a traditional classroom. It was the experience of a lifetime. I truly recommend everyone to take advantage of it.”
“Being able to learn in an unconventional way was so exciting. Walking along a sacbe, exploring caves, and enjoying the natural beauty of the Yucatan has left such a memorable impression on me. I truly benefited from the experience in a way I couldn't have done in a traditional classroom. I highly recommend The World of the Maya Mexico Travel Seminar.”
