I went to a total eclipse in Mexico in the summer of 1991. On the beach in San Blas, the clouds moved in off of the ocean about 15 min before totality. Bummer. It was perfect this year in eastern Idaho in the valley on the back side of the Tetons near Griggs. Planned for 3 years to see it and didn't need campground reservations.
BTW, the 2024 eclipse starts in the Pacific, makes landfall in Mexico and heads toward Canada. Totality of more than 4 mins is nearly the longest totality can be. Sounds like a good idea to plan so far in advance. Our family's current planning is for somewhere a bit remote in Texas. Dallas and Ft. Worth are in the path of totality. My adult kids can't afford the time you will invest in a tour like yours but it sounds like a good plan.
