Here’s what some people had to say about this tour:
Christina Peitz – April 2017
I abolutely enjoyed my trip “Best of Mexico”. Our guide, a very knowldedgeable young native Mexican with perfect English skills, invited us to immerse into the culture of his country on the most different levels: history and archeology, Mexican cuisine, landscapes, animal wildlife and nature. Our group was rather small (8 people), but just enough for this type of more acheologically and historically-nuanced tour.
Rachel Yule – April 2017
The Best of Mexico is a great introduction to Mexico, especially for those who like to explore independently within a structured itinerary.
Dominik Halter – August 2016
First of all, the trip was very organised. The hotels we stayed in were all beautiful. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and the activities were totally impressive. We absolutely recommend this tour and we will travel with them again, no question!
Natasha Beathe – July 2016
An incredible journey through Mexico! It takes you to several archeological sites and cities that are steeped in history and traditions. We didn’t realize how many archeological sites Mexico has and were fascinated by the ancient civilizations that lived there, as well as the cultures that emerged from the Spanish imposition on indigenous peoples. Intoxicating.
