2022 Tours will be Yucatan, Airstream, Copper Canyon and Baja
What makes us diferent from our competitors?. Well for starters we are pretty well one of 2 companies running tours on the mainland. The one trip we do similar to theirs costs about $1200 US more. However, it is also 20 days longer, has 10 times the meals included and twice the number of tours included. I am just not marketing when I say we are the best. We are based in Mexico and have access to many more resources and we do not have to contract out. Furthermore we use professional registered tour guides, not do ad hoc tours led by the Wagon Master, unless they are free extras. Our company owner, is himself, a fully registered tour guide. We have had many customers who have used our competitors and they all tell us our trips are far better value for money. It's not just a case of "You get what you pay for", it's a case of "You get more than what you pay for" Our prices are on our "Prices" page. See link above.
Start date Jan 7th, 2022 .
This is our longest tour, the toughest, but by far, the most interesting. It does involve more dry camping, although we have been adding some hotel stops to minimalize that. This trip may also not be suitable for some larger rigs. You need to talk to us first about your setup. This trip usually ranges between 85 & 90 days. We pride ourselves in taking people to locations they will never see on a normal Mexican vacation, from remote Mayan ruins, to bat caves, to petrified waterfalls. We also stay in an orphange on this trip, providing some opportunites to lend help. The trip starts in Mission, Texas and ends in Lukeville, Arizona. This means you do a complete loop around the country. We generally restrict this trip to 10 rigs, certainly no more than 12.
Start Date Jan 10, 2022
We suggest you join the private Facebook page run by our wagon master on the 2020 Copper Canyon and Colonial tour, to get an idea of what this trip is like. https://web.facebook.com/groups/580666845830079/
We run a 30 Day trip to Copper Canyon & Mazatlan. The rigs are parked in El Fuerte and we take the first class train up to Creel where we spend 3 nights in hotels and tour the canyon. That portion is all-inclusive. For those with pets, we will arrange pet care. Pets (except Seeing Eye Dogs) are not allowed on the train. This tour is much more than just Copper Canyon, we also provide tours in Mazatlan, San Carlos, El Fuerte and Alamos.
There is a possibility of a 30 day Colonial Mexico extension if there is enough interest.
This trip starts in Nogales, Az and ends in Lukeville, Az. You will find accounts of the 2020 trip in 2 facebook groups:

Fall Baja - Spring Copper Canyon Combo
We are introducing a combo trip offer. The Fall Baja trip Nov 12 - Dec 15th, followed by the Spring Copper Canyon trip Jan 10 - Feb 10. The cost of the 2 trips will be reduced by $800 US or $1000 Canadian collectively, plus you can cover both trips with a single vehicle insurance policy.
We are planning several trips for the total solar eclipse in Durango & Mazatlan on April 8th, 2024. Some will be short, some longer, some including Copper Canyon, some not. The Yucatan loop for that year will also include it. You may express interest by filling out the form below. Due to the expected popularity of this (judging by interest so far) we will have to take half payment about 2 years in advance to secure spots. We will supply protective eyewear.More Info
