Mexico By Hand Art & Culture Tour
Are you looking for something different for your next vacation? Are you interested in getting to know "real Mexico" but you don't speak Spanish? Do you dislike the idea of traveling in a large sightseeing tour bus going from one souvenir stand to another? Mexico By Hand offers "insiders" folk art and culture tours of the beautiful and fascinating state of Michoacán. For information about our tours, please contact us and we'll get back to you soon.
If you're not able to join us on one of our tours, or you're just an independent traveler who can't imagine traveling with a group but want to venture off the beaten track in Mexico and be wise about it-- maybe we can help. Many folks have approached us for insider tips and advice about the best places to sleep and eat, where to find the master artisans who create the art we feature, where to study Spanish, and to even help them plan out their itinerary. So, Peggy is now offering private, individualized consulting services at a reasonable price and at our mutual convenience via the phone and/or email. We will discuss your needs and desires so that we can tailor a trip that is right for you and your interests. You will benefit from our years of experience living and traveling in Michoacán, as Peggy shares with you much of what Mexico By Hand Art and Culture Tour participants receive -- as you travel on your own. This area of Mexico isn't well known by North Americans, and most travel guide books you'll find have little and often just plain wrong information that leads good people astray. We hate to see that happen. Our goal is for you to have a great time and get the most out of your Michoacán adventure, and to be compensated for helping you prepare for your trip.
Fees start at $50 for up to an hour consultation and can be paid by VISA, Mastercard or PayPal. If you would like more conversations with Peggy (including while you are traveling in Mexico) or you would like her to make hotel or language course arrangements for you, we can negotiate an appropriate fee for that.
MaryAnne S. of California has traveled extensively in Mexico but consulted with Mexico By Hand before traveling to Michoacán in Sept. 2015--"You saved us so much time in the Patzcuaro area. Loved it...had a great time in Michoacán. Thank you, thank you."
