KQED 9: Sun, Sep 18, 2011 -- 7:00 PM

He's traveled with the King of Jordan, the President of Peru, the Prime Ministers of New Zealand and Jamaica. Now, Peter Greenberg joins Felipe Calder?n, one of the most dynamic leaders of Latin America, for a history-making television special. Mexico: The Royal Tour is a groundbreaking special, produced and hosted by Peter Greenberg that will showcase Mexico in a way no visitor has ever seen the country before - through the eyes of its leader. In a personal tour led by President Calder?n, Mexico: The Royal Tour goes beyond the headlines to journey deep inside Mexico and offer viewers access to extraordinary locations, landmarks and cultural experiences. Mexico: The Royal Tour is a fast-paced, non-stop adventure through Mexico's iconic spots as well as experiences that aren't found in any guidebook, but are still accessible to travelers. The ultimate tour of Mexico begins in Los Pinos, the Mexican White House, where the President will engage Peter in a revealing no-holds-barred interview about his history in office and the future of Mexico. Visit President Calder?n's hometown of Morelia, meet his mother, and learn about the influences that shaped the leader's personal and political career. Explore the legendary ruins of lost civilizations, seek out their descendants and find the ancient mysteries these sites have hidden for generations. From soaring across the skies in a hot air balloon for a bird's-eye view of Teotihuac?n, to whale watching in Baja California, to rappelling stories into a seemingly bottomless pit, the world's foremost travel journalist uncovers the essence of this captivating and complex nation with the President as his guide. This is not the Mexico of media headlines or the pristine Mexico of travel brochures - this is the real Mexico of The Royal Tour.
