Some comments by past clients
 
Yvette Lorentz (from Hong Kong)

Sandra, thank you very much for doing all the arrangements for my trip. I have had a wonderful time in Mexico and will certainly recommend the 'Grand Tour of Mexico' to anyone heading this way. Everything went very smoothly....All the hotels were great... Most important for me was that they were in good locations..Close to shops and restaurants etc.... All transfers and tours went well. Comfortable vehicles and friendly staff.... Tour guides knowledgeable and with good English.

In all, this was the trip of a lifetime. My only complaint is that it was too short! Anyway, thanks again! Yvette
