Follow in the Footsteps of Juan Diego

Let A Closer Look Tours Take You On One of the Catholic Church’s Most Extraordinary Journeys

PHOENIX, Arizona (March 1, 2009) – In the minds and hearts of millions of Catholic believers, the name of Juan Diego is forever linked with one of the Blessed Mother’s most memorable apparitions, right on the outskirts of what is now Mexico City. A Closer Look Tours, a tour company committed to providing truly unique experiences that take guests on the road less traveled, has created a tour that will take you on an amazing journey following in the footsteps of one of Mexico’s most beloved figures as he witnesses the miracles brought about by of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Guided by our very experienced tour directors, you will journey to the birthplace of Juan Diego in Cuautitlan; tour the Basilica of Guadalupe, home to the wondrous mantle of the Virgin of Guadalupe; and visit the actual site of the apparition on Tepeyac Hill as well as other spots of both historic and religious significance.

During your trip, you will also have the pleasure of discovering the magic of Mexico City—a breathtaking metropolis that has flourished for nine centuries since its founding as the ancient capital of the Aztec Empire. Side trips to the colonial cities of Puebla and Tlaxcala, rich in tradition and charming architecture, round out the 6-night, 7-day tour.

Prices begin at $1,506 per person (land only) based on double occupancy and include all meals, transfers, tours, bags, taxes, gratuities and the company of an experienced bilingual tour director. A Closer Look Tours provides deluxe land transportation with frequent stops to allow passengers to stretch their legs, and purified bottled water is always available on the motor coach.
