I enjoyed the program and experiencing interesting places.


Oaxaca was a great place to celebrate the holidays. Many parades, festivities, good natured crowds and great archaeological sites, churches and museums to visit.Also highly rated city by a travel magazine.


I have traveled extensively and found this trip to be among the best I've ever done. We dove head first into extraordinary Mexican culture and history, participating in many of the events, instead of just watching. Don't miss this trip!


A delightful and informative alternative to the ususal holiday activities (and I did not have to deal with unpleasant relatives!).


In general, the website worked pretty well for me. However, a number of links lead to dead ends. As a default, I keep being sent to pages that want to sell me another tour. That's frustrating and annoying.


This was a wonderful, warm, friendly, festive and informative way to spend the holidays. I really had a great time!


Our recent trip to Oaxaca, Puebla and Mexico City was absolutely wonderful!!! Flights and in-country transport were seamless, and we loved all of the scheduled activities — the radish festival and posadas in particular — and the many archaeological sites and other venues we saw. The hotels were awesome, and the food MOSTLY excellent. It felt, however that dietary restrictions we were asked to list in our applications were seldom honored, causing our leaders to have to scramble for alternatives with the restaurant people as we were waiting to be served. Rafi, our guide, was charming and well-informed, though his habit of going off on tangents in response to questions makes we wonder if he shouldn’t consider retiring soon. Terri, our group leader, was always kind, and very organized. Some of us wished, however, that she were a bit more flexible In accommodating demand for doing something not on the schedule when there was clearly enough time to fit it in. Overall, though, she was great. The two lecturers were fabulous, each in their own way. No complaints there. Thanks for making our Christmas/New Year’s season one of our most memorable.
