MEXICO / OTHER
An elegant Canadian lady from Vancouver, having completed our showcase ‘A Train Holiday to the Copper Canyon’ described her holiday as “fabuloso, one of the best ever” and happily, she is in good company. Travelers rave about our Copper Canyon holiday which travels over the stunning Chihuahua al Pacifico Railroad from east to west and offers more time IN the Copper Canyon than any other tour operating from the USA offers. As in Canada, our knowledge of trains and the region has allowed us to create a masterful program that offers a relaxed pace, superb hotels, great local guides and with all meals included.
To make it even easier, we begin in El Paso with a deluxe hotel stay and welcome dinner and end in Tucson, also with a deluxe hotel and farewell dinner. This means no flying in and out of Mexico on puddle jumper planes and easy connections to and from El Paso and Tucson from all US cities, by train or plane. With our Copper Canyon holiday being so artfully arranged, this is the ideal way to say “bienvenidos’ or welcome to this remarkable region.
