    Being in Mexico for The Day of The Dead celebrations was an amazing experience and one which I will never forget. My lovely fellow travellers and Chris our guide made the trip a brilliant one.

    An exciting varied trip. I would have liked breakfast to be included as having to budget for this plus lunch and dinner proved expensive
