Mexico Cultural Journey

Viva Mexico! Our neighbor to the south has so much to offer a curious traveler: world-class cuisine, compelling history that is inextricably tied to our own, landscapes that rival the most beautiful in the world and a friendly and hospitable people. Many of these attributes are too often overlooked or taken for granted, so we’re excited to help groups rediscover this wonderful country.

Cultural Journeys

Cultural Journeys

Cultural Journeys allow travelers to gain insights into the heritage, history and modern realities of their destination by offering a broad diversity of experience. We rely on the expertise of our local staff to plan itineraries which not only explore the prominent sites but also make time for the lesser-known local gems and are intentional about regular interaction with local people.

I was very concerned about my daughter who has a peanut allergy travelling to a foreign country for the first time without us. Walking Tree was very sensitive to my concerns and reassured me that this is something they could handle and they did! I would send her again in a heartbeat. Thank you Walking Tree.
