Who We Are

Sue Stilwell was so convincing and is absolutely best in the business. Guide: Knowledgeable, Hotel: Awesome, Food: Unbelievable, Overall Trip Organization: Excellent. Best of any tour I’ve ever done. I did this tour to see if I would want to travel abroad and if everything is organized and security is intact. I would/will travel with S&S Tours again!

Meet S&S Tours

See More, Learn More, Do More

S&S Tours was formed to provide safe, informative, in-depth and FUN traveling experiences for visitors to Mexico, Costa Rica and South America. Traveling with us you will truly experience the culture, and become acquainted with the people, instead of just “seeing the sights.” We work hard to assure we have a positive impact on the areas we visit, and to be ecologically and culturally sensitive to the land and people.

Our trips are active and interesting, but still allow time to unwind, relax and appreciate where you are. Our average groups are 8-10 people (or less), with personal attention and care that creates a group camaraderie not found on most tours. (We often see friends return more than once for the same trip!)

If you’re familiar with tour agencies, you know that many do not offer customized itineraries. At S&S Tours, customization is a specialty. We love facilitating experiences that meet our clients’ interests, preferences, schedule and budget. If you are not able to fit into one of our escorted group trips, just call us; escorted or unescorted, we can create a tour for you that you will never forget.
