I agree that two major problems with all the commercial tour groups is they waste alot of time visiting non-monarch places and they are expensive.
I've had pretty good luck getting monarch loving types to organize their own self guided tour where no one is an official paid "guide" and the group as a whole decides what to do, where to go etc. We get to know one another mostly via internet contact,then fly to Morelia to meet one another, rent 2 or 3 cars and then caravan to the sanctuaries and motels. I won't know until late November if I'm going to go this year or not. The third week in February is often the best time to visit the sanctuaries as the butterflies are more active than in January.
