Mexico Shore Excursions 2009

MexicoWe've been traveling to Mexico for over 25 years. My grandparents loved Mexico and in the 70s built a house in Morelia. Monty Budd, my grandfather, retired as director of advertising from Hercules, Inc. and continued with his love of Mexico writing for the English language newspaper, giving lectures in Mexican history at the University in Morelia and searching the countryside for local artisans. Our visits to Mexico became "travels with Monty" meeting his many friends and finding the true spirit of Mexico. Monty Budd celebrating his 85th Birthday!Monty died peacefully in his sleep at the age of 91 in Morelia after watching Monday night Football and still writing newspaper articles about Mexico.

It has been a dream come true to offer our clients the best of Mexico. So, in the tradition of Monty, we now offer a variety of tours and shore excursions in Mexico. Just as Monty did, we have searched out the best of Mexico starting in the Ports of call of Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, Cabo San Lucas, and Ixtapa - Zihuatanejo. If you're planning a cruise along the Mexican Riviera you'll want to contact us for the best in independent tours. Visit us now:
