Mexico Testimonial

MEXICO GROUP TRIP

“We booked one of Salt & Wind’s first trips down to Mexico and had a blast. The trip exceeded our expectations and was the perfect mix of big city and small towns that we never would have known about or been able to discover on our own. The staff had clearly done their homework on the areas we visited and took us to several local finds. They were knowledgeable about the history of everywhere we went as well as up and coming trends in the area. The planning and logistics were also well thought out. Highly recommended!”

MEXICO PRIVATE GROUP TRAVEL

“I selected Salt & Wind to plan my birthday weekend in Valle de Guadalupe Mexico. Aida and team did an amazing job selecting the perfect combination of housing, wineries and restaurants. Everything was spot on and my group of 6 loved every moment. I can't wait to book another trip with Salt & Wind.”

SPAIN & ITALY CUSTOM TRAVEL PLANNING

“Salt & Wind planned our honeymoon to Barcelona and Northern Italy (Piedmont, Bologna & Milan). From hotels to restaurants to activities, everything was well thought out and fit right in with how we like to travel.

We had just enough events planned that it didn't feel like we had to rush around to fit everything in. Aida and the team were super responsive and professional. We will definitely be booking another trip through Salt & Wind!”

EUROPE CUSTOM TRAVEL PLANNING

“My husband and I turned to the amazing ladies at Salt & Wind to plan the food and wine filled European honeymoon of our dreams!

Our 2 week trip to Spain and Italy was meticulously curated with experiences that truly captured the local beat of whatever city or town we were in. From 3 star Michelin dining to off the beaten path locals-only joints, the Salt and Wind team really listened to what we were asking for and custom-tailored the exact experience to our preferences.

Every local guide they put us in touch with was as passionate as they were knowledgeable. The vibe was always more of a Friday dinner party with your favorite food-obsessed friends than your traditional tourist trap activities. They took care of all the logistics of booking, making reservations, etc so that we were stress-free and relaxed from day one. If you're looking for high quality travel planning from people who REALLY know their stuff-you are in the right place. Can't say enough good things!!!”

FRANCE & ITALY CUSTOM TRAVEL PLANNING

“We had been wanting to travel to Europe for years but always put it off, worried that the planning process would be too daunting.

Thanks to Aida and her team, we were able to have an amazing trip we will never forget without having to worry about doing all the research and work that often comes with traveling. The team helped answer all of our questions and concerns with care and kindness. We are so grateful to have found Salt & Wind!”

Fish-Tacos-with-Friends.jpg

MEXICO GROUP TRIP

Had a great time on the Salt & Wind Mexico trip. I got talked into it by friends and am glad they recommended it.

I'm a big beer lover so the craft beer tour in Tijuana was a highlight, as were the accompanying tacos. The whole
experience was well curated and it was fun getting to meet and hang with fellow travelers.

The biggest pluses to me were one, I didn't have to plan, every last bit of the itinerary was handled; and two, the
value for the price. My accommodations were fantastic and there was enough food at each meal for a small army (hope you're hungry)!

I'd definitely recommend this trip to anyone interested in the region, you won't be disappointed!”
