It isn't often the public gets to visit a real archeological dig and that is exactly what this is. We enjoyed it very much.

We had no idea what to expect when i signed up for this adventure. Adventure it was! We consider it one of the highlights of our trip. I sorry that i can't remember the young lady's name, who was our guide, but she was awesome! So knowledgeable, personable, and entertaining. We had heard a few people comment about the site but never dreamed that it would be so fantastic. We'll be recommending this site as well.
