Strong sensory experiences on KHR's study trip to Mexico

Mexico is definitely worth a study trip. The senses are put to work taking in the colours and shapes, smells and tastes. Be inspired by our programme for the trip to Mexico City at the end of 2019. We had a fantastic trip and can only recommend others to travel in our footsteps.
