«..the old way of acquiring wisdom through travel…»
The Aspects of Mexico lectures & field trips program is run by Artisans of Time.
Artisans of Time is an anthropology of travel experiment born in 2003. The experiment works in the interfase of culture, heritage and tourism. We do research, training, consulting and we create and operate high quality tours around Mexico.
Our research projects are financed through the cultural tours we operate, and that is one of the important reasons for you to travel with us. Doing so you are supporting our ongoing research:
- The cultural dynamics in San Miguel
- Heritage interpretation and tourguide handbook for training guides in Mexico
Our headquarters are in the awesome San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, a world heritage city, where we run the Aspects of Mexico lectures and field trips program for english speaking public.
