Peter Greenbeg, credited as “America’s most recognized, honored and respected front-line travel news journalist,” hosts a special series on PBS called The Royal Tour in which he travels a country guided by its head of state. On September 22nd (September 23rd in Mexico), PBS will air ‘The Royal Tour: Mexico’ – Greenberg’s grandest royal tour to date.
With Mexico’s President, Felipe Calderón, as his guide, Greenberg explored Mexico from top to bottom, undertaking such adventures as whale watching in Baja California, rappelling 110 stories down the Cave of Swallows in San Luis Potosi and zip-lining through the jungles of Puerto Vallarta. Sneak peek footage shows a fascinating journey spent exploring the Yucatan including a cenote dive where ancient Mayan skeletons have been found. In addition to the adventure, Greenberg was able to sit down with the President and discuss some pressing issues such as the United State’s perception of safety in Mexico.
Judging from the trailer ‘The Royal Tour: Mexico’ looks fantastic. For behind-the-scenes footage and more information, visit the official website and don’t forget to set your TiVos now because, trust us, Mexico is going to blow you away!
