A declining percentage of this is refundable depending on cancellation date. All may be applied to a tour the following season with a possible percentage penalty.
Important: See terms for our refund policy. Participants will be required to sign a standard waiver of liability before departure, which will also outline our responsibilities to you. You may download a copy of this HERE or in the smaller, finer print version HERE
NOTE: Paying a Deposit will protect you against price increases. If the trip includes Copper Canyon, it may be dropped for a reduction of $1000 US or $1250 Canadian per rig. We can arrange a bass fishing trip for you with a 2-3 couple minimum. Pretty much the same price. We provide high quality meals & tours. We do not skimp.
Final price is set at time of final payment. It will never be higher than the price at time of deposit, but it may well be less. We tend to base our prices on the Canadian dollar which is more stable against the peso. Once you sign up and make a deposit you will pay the lowest price.
We know Mexico far better than any other caravan company, bar none, and we have influence with many politicians here who facilitate a lot of our endeavors. It is not unusual to see the mayor of a city or the State Minister of Tourism show up during our trips and present gifts to our customers.
We aim for 30% less than our competitors and 30% better quality (except for the many other companies we provide services to, of course). If you look at what we offer, you should realize we are the best deal out there.
Our prices are set ahead of season in both US and Canadian dollars so customers who have paid a deposit do not have to be concerned about currency exchange swings. We generally work on the Canadian dollar standard since it tends to keep pace with the Peso.
Deposits are fixed at a flat $500 US or $600 Canadian. We allow a fair amount to be paid in cash at the border.
The minimum number of rigs must be signed up by 3 months prior to departure to run Caravans. If a trip does not run you have the option of a deposit rebate or shift to another trip.
The shorter the trip, the higher the per day costs. Many of our expenses are fixed, such as wagon master & tour guide compensation, so we have less time to spread those costs out on shorter trips. Regardless, our Copper Canyon 30 day tour, for example, is almost identical to another companies and the price is still about $3000 US cheaper. We do not have to contract out, as we are legally licensed to operate as tour guides in Mexico, and have far less overhead, plus we do not indulge in expensive advertising. The quality of the trips are just as good, but you as the customer, get the savings.
