    2 stand out points for us: would not transit via US again if at all possible. Standard of hotels in Copan and Tikal really not good enough for higher quality of tour. Otherwise think Explore did their best to put together a good tour.

    This was real immersion in Maya sites and it would have been good to include one major museum in the itinerary. We missed out on the interesting artefacts that are not left on sites.
