“Thank you Mitch Bach and Alan Armijo for an unforgettable experience on your MegaTraining!!!! Y’all are at the top of your game and offer us so much more than the basic where to go and how to get there!!! Your passion and enthusiasm for the industry is unsurpassable, and your energy is infectious!! Thank you for sharing all your secrets and not keeping them to yourselves. I am so grateful and privileged to be a part of such a wonderful community.”

More than just FAM tours.

You’ll certainly learn tour logistics and visit all the necessary itinerary sites. But we don’t stop there. We go behind the scenes and organize special experiences just for you. We share our special tricks and hidden gems and that will make your trips stand out as special and spectacular. You’ll meet locals in each city that explain their careers and lives, so you get first-hand experiences to share with your guests.
