And it came to pass that the multitude went forth, and thrust their hands into his side, and did feel the prints of the nails in his hands and in his feet; and this they did do, going forth one by one until they had all gone forth, and did see with their eyes and did feel with their hands, and did know of a surety and did bear record, that it was he, of whom it was written by the prophets, that should come.
3 Nephi 11:15
Why use an LDS tour guide?
Perhaps some of you do not understand what a great opportunity it is to go see the archeological sites like Chichen Itza, Ek Balam, Tulum and Coba by means of an LDS tour Guide.
The archeologists do not know where the Mayan's are from, when they arrived here, what it happened to them, or who was their God?
These answers to all of these questions are not found in the archeology but in the greatest source of truth...The Book of Mormon.
A common tour guide explains accordinng to the knowledge of the man. An LDS tour Guide explains by means of the sacred scriptures that we have in the Gospel. This makes all the difference.
If you book a tour through your hotel there are several downfalls. They usually are big groups of at least 40 people, which makes it hard for you to hear your tour guide in the archeological sites. Tour guides are not well paid by the hotels so they will do a "restroom" stop in a shopping place so you can buy something and the tour guide will get a commision from the money you spend. They will tell you something to the effect of "In Chichen Itza you can get those souvenirs for a very small price" while at the same time wasting one whole hour of your precious tour for shopping.
I offer smaller, more personal tours. You can ask more questions, learn more and have a more authentic Mayan/Mexican experience.
Do not miss the chance to learn about Mayan History by means of an LDS tour guide.
There are many questions in the Mexican archaeology about the ancient cultures of America but not proper answers in the archaeology for questions such as:
Where the Mayans are from?
How did they arrive here?
When did they arrive here?
Where did Mayan culture start?
What happened to the Mayan people?
Who were the Mayan Gods?
Who was the bearded mystery white man that they talked about in their believes?
What is the Popol Vuh book?
Why does Popol Vuh talk about the creation of the man, the great flood, the tower of babel, the confusion of the tongues?
Why Popol Vuh is so similar to the Bible?
Why ancient American buildings are a copy of Solomon's temple in Old Testament?
Why did they do human sacrifices in those buildings?
In Europe is known as middle ages or dark ages. Spiritually is known as the great Apostasy but in America ironically is known as the golden age of America. Why?
If Mayans were peaceful people as many believe.
Why did they build many fortresses?
What was the real meaning of the Mayan ball game?
Why did they sacrifice the winner?
Why he was willing to be sacrificed?
Why are many Chaacs (rain Gods) in Chichen itza but not in Coba or Tulum?
