Overview
As I (Albert Coffee) guide you through this magical place, where I had the privilege of participating during the 2004 excavation field season, I'll share what I have gleaned through personal hands-on experience and years of study about ancient Mesoamerica, the legends & wisdom of local people. I am a graduate of Louisiana State University and a federally licensed tour guide. This special tour includes years of documented legends, wisdom & memories of the elders of the ranch communities on and around the historic location. You will hear about each place and its cultural significance as you journey along the path the ancients took to reach the pyramid. I have taken over 20,000 people on tours since the site opened to the public in 2011. My passion is relating in an enjoyable way information that is just coming to light in an area very recently investigated. I hope to see you soon. This is "a must do while you’re here…!" "An experience that can’t be missed." "Don’t get left behind."

This was a great tour. Albert’s sense of humour along with his deep knowledge of the site and history in general made the tour very interesting and enjoyable. The driver who picked us up in San Miguel was on time. Note: The logistics of this tour are different than most
