APRIL 2015


On April 9th 1958, our founder Mr. Darius Morgan Sr. converted his dream into reality, a dream called CRILLON TOURS. It was not easy to be a pioneer, since he had to pave the road where now everyone can move easily. There were so many things to do and as the legendary song says: He planned each chartered course; he did what he had to do; he faced it all and he stood tall; he found it all so amusing when he thinks HE DID IT HIS WAY!
We are happy and proud because we count with the international support and confidence of our friends and colleagues all around the world. We have created unique conditions to make visitors have an unforgettable trip. Sometimes we had to face unexpected problems, but we had the capacity to resolve them and guests have returned home happy to have met a gorgeous country and have received affection and a quality service from CRILLON TOURS.
We are also happy because the 3 generations of the tireless Morgan family; Darius Sr, Darius Jr, Margot and now Sebastian, together with the fantastic CRILLON TOURS TEAM, wish to share with you the celebration of our 57 Anniversary, pleas raise with us a glass of champagne to toast to all of us !SALUD & HAPPINESS FOR EVERYBODY!
