Danielle Ferrier

Tuvimos una experiencia de viaje encantadora. Basándose en ciertos lugares y cosas que queríamos hacer y ver, la agencia creó un plan de viaje personal para nosotros. De este modo, podíamos estar seguros de cuánto podíamos abarcar en nuestro tiempo de viaje en coche. Una de las razones por las que habíamos decidido ir a través de una agencia era que somos conscientes del frágil sistema ecológico de México, que es algo realmente especial y hermoso de ver. Nuestros tours y actividades fueron operados por locales y empresas que también hacen lo posible por preservar la naturaleza. Esta es una buena manera de conocer a los locales y al país un poco mejor. Antes, durante e incluso después de nuestro viaje fuimos muy bien atendidos por nuestro anfitrión de viaje.

¡Este viaje fue fantástico en cada paso del camino! Desde la programación hasta la ejecución, pasando por todos y cada uno de los conductores/guías turísticos que fueron maravillosos. Trabajaron estrechamente con nosotros cuidadosamente moldeado nuestro viaje. Nuestros guías y conductores estaban increíblemente bien informados, hablaban un inglés impecable y nos ayudaron a dar recomendaciones e información histórica que fue muy valiosa. Fue mágico. No puedo agradecer lo suficiente. ¡Este viaje superó todas las expectativas!

Las porciones culturales e históricas del viaje fueron muy informativas e interesantes, incluida Me hubiera gustado tener uno o dos días para ir a lugares adicionales.
