How We Tour

Small Group Escorted Tours

We depart throughout the year to various destinations. Join a group any time!

We schedule escorted small group tours to all our destinations. Small groups average 8-10 people. Anyone can join any of these pre-scheduled tours. There are several advantages to joining a small group. Your bilingual S&S Tours guide is included in the price, and you get the opportunity to save money by sharing a room with another person (if you like), while the small size of the group ensures plenty of personal attention.

  • Escort/guide

Escorted Bus Tours (Copper Canyon Only)

A cost-effective way to start your Copper Canyon adventure, departing Phoenix 9 times each year.

If you want to visit Mexico’s Copper Canyon, taking an S&S Tours bus from Phoenix is a cost-effective and comfortable way to do it. Nine months out of the year you can join several other people on a luxury bus ride, accompanied by an experienced S&S Tours escort. The bus will take you to El Fuerte, a colonial town known as “the gateway to the Copper Canyon,” where you will hop aboard the Chihuahua al Pacífico railroad (“El Chepe”), your way into the Canyon.

Each bus will accommodate up to 50 passengers; however, the tour requires a minimum of 20 travelers to make it a “go.” There are four bus ride days to and from the Canyon. (If you have a challenge with motion sickness, please bring medication for it as we have seat rotation on the bus.) As long as you are prepared for this you will experience a wonderful time!

Independent, Unescorted Itineraries

We will arrange your on-the-ground details for a hassle-free, worry-free adventure.

If you want a trip plan created for you and all the in-country details arranged, but you don’t need an escort with you at every moment, an S&S Tours independent, unescorted itinerary is a great option. We will arrange your on-the-ground details for a hassle-free, worry-free adventure. We can plan every detail, from meals and lodging to local tour guides and attractions. This means all you need to arrange is your flight and airport transportation. English-speaking contacts will be available at every point.
