2019-20 Tours

Welcome to Season 2019-20. I’m so happy to have the opportunity to share our classic destinations with you, as well as new ones. México has everything to surprise your senses. I invite you to join me on an adventure to discover the heart of México. As always, we will visit places that teach us much about México’s past and present, including many Pueblos Mágicos, towns designated by the Mexican government as being especially rich in culture, history and beauty.

This is my ninth year celebrating the diversity and magic of México by organizing and leading these genuine cultural trips. I like to say that my job is to build bridges of understanding between cultures, but you are the key to this process because you take advantage of these opportunities to visit remote places and meet incredible people. Following these paths, I can share with you the glory of México’s culture. Thank you!
