Schneiderman was recognized for her contribution and support of the cultural heritage of Mexico and her ability to introduce travelers to in-depth, life-changing interpersonal cultural and culinary experiences.
(TRAVPR.COM) UNITED STATES - January 27th, 2017 - Stephanie Schneiderman, Founder of Tia Stephanie Tours was recognized for her work introducing travelers to the rich cultural and culinary heritage of Mexico and named a Top Travel Specialist: Cultural Immersion, Mexico, by Condé Nast Traveler in the December 2016 issue. “She’s all about cultural immersion, taking you to meet weavers in Chiapas or chefs in Oaxaca,” says the premier travel magazine.
Schneiderman has been a leader in the creation, presentation, and promotion of experiential tourism to Mexico for over ten years. “It is a true honor that my steady and focused mission and work to showcase the singular cultural attributes of Mexico, has been recognized by such a prestigious publication as Condé Nast Traveler,” she says. She continues, “I greatly applaud Condé Nast Traveler for recognizing and highlighting cultural travel as an important and growing segment in the travel industry. This is a resounding testament that today’s traveler is interested in learning, engaging, and interacting with people and cultures of other countries, in our case: Mexico.”
Stephanie Schneiderman founded Tia Stephanie Tours with the specific mission to invite curious travelers to truly acquaint themselves with Mexico and its people, beyond the beach resorts. Having grown up in Mexico City, and having traveled extensively throughout Mexico, Schneiderman finds it frustrating that many people associate Mexico with sun and beach tourism only. Her over-30-years of living and traveling throughout Mexico have opened her eyes to a vast, diverse, complex and magnificent country -- one she passionately shares with her travelers.
Schneiderman connects globally-minded travelers to regional culture, reflected in narratives of local: cuisine (Flavors & Landscapes of Baja California, The Flavors of Yucatan & Campeche), craft and textile traditions (Textile Traditions of Veracruz, Chinlanta, Oaxaca, Tlaxcala), ethnographic and contemporary festivals (Day of the Dead in Michoacan, Night of the Radishes in Oaxaca), contemporary art and art history (Mexico City: Art, Culture, and Cuisine), Cultural and Natural Wonders (Michoacán: Journey of the Monarchs), and the ancient and living cultures and people of Mexico (The Ancient and Living Maya). She first began offering itineraries in Oaxaca and Chiapas and later expanded to Mexico City, Yucatan, Michoacán, Puebla, Veracruz and other destinations in Mexico.
All these distinctive and salient itinerary narratives have enlightened Schneiderman’s travelers, and along the way, her past travelers themselves have become ambassadors for Mexico and the Mexican people.
