I was just reviewing our mission events of last year and was reminded of what a fantastic job you and your staff did getting our team of 83, deep into Central Mexico. It was amazing; multiple groups going into different airports at different times and it all came together at the other end without a hitch.
I realized that traveling alone without an expert’s assistance is like going to a foreign country without a tour guide. Sure you can see the sights and enjoy yourself, but you don’t know your way around and if you get lost, you can’t get the right answers because you don’t speak the native language. The next time I travel, I will use Chi Chi, LLC as my “tour guide”.
