The University of Texas at Tyler, in collaboration with the Maya Research Program, will offer a tour that explores Mayan culture, Dr. Teresa Kennedy, UT Tyler Office of International Programs executive director, announced.

Led by Dr. Thomas Guderjan, associate professor of anthropology, the Maya Highlands New Year's Eve Tour is set for Dec. 28 to Jan. 9 and costs $3,600 per person.
