This was a good day trip from Mexico City and an opportunity to see many of Mexico's fine colonial churches. The lunch (included) was good and the guide (Ignacio of "Nacho") was excellent.

This was an excellent day trip and a wonderful way to see colonial Mexico outside of Mexico City. The guide, Francisco, did a great job. The lunch (not included) was very good and the restaurant had a fine view of the cathedral. During the free time, I had enough time to hire a taxi to take me up the hill to the Christ the Redeemer monument for an amazing view of Taxco and the cathedral. There was even enough time to look around town a little after coming back down the hill.

Another lovely day trip thanks to the friendliness and expertise of our guide, Javier. We thoroughly enjoyed the visits to both towns - perhaps a little longer in Cuernavaca would have been preferable. We had a lovely lunch overlooking the town and had good fun exploring the silver shops in Taxco. Lots of friendly banter and a relaxed attitude made the day!

Our day trip to Iztaccihuatl was quite an experience that we have many storeys to tell. Our guide picked us up prompted at 6:20 am. We were to have a 12 hour day from 7 am to 7 pm. Along the way to the hike we were to stop for nourishment. This came from an Oxxo store. They had a selection of packaged sandwiches, that was it. Our driver kept on throttling the gas pedal on the highway making stomachs uneasy. I asked him to stop to no avail. Once we arrived to our destination we were told that the road was muddy and we could not go to the proper trailhead. We did appear to start on the proper trailhead as there was a sign stating so. Our guide took us along the well-used trail. At a branch we stayed along the trail that followed a fence to the right. As it was very foggy we could not see our ultimate destination. A few minutes later the trail ended and we were walking over ground shrubs and cactus. It was very windy, over 60 km per hour. After 45 minutes into the hike our guide advised that if anyone wanted to return to say so and we would all return. A few minutes later the guide asked again. My stomach was unsettled (partly from the drive) and some of us where getting a little cold due to the wind and cold temperature. So we started back. On the way back the clouds had cleared and we could now see our destination and other hikers there. If we had taken the other branch at the beginning of the trail we would have been on the right trail, on the protected side of the mountain and would have made our destination. We ended up returning by 2 pm. It appears that the guide’s goal was to have us return as early as possible so that he would pocket the cash and have 1/2 a day to do something else. I did enjoy the hike however. I met some interesting people on the bus and learned about how one may be scammed while in the country.

Only three persons on this day trip. We were taken by car and our guide for the day, Jaime, was excellent. His English was very good and we got lots of information about the two towns.
The lunch in an old hotel in Pueblo was also very good. The tour was good value for money.

The trip to Puebla is an all day trip with a long time in the van. The Cathedral at Cholula was very special as was the archeological site. But he Teotithucan Pyramid site is much better and not so long to drive. The town of Puebla was OK and our guide told us about different things. And we had a few minutes to shop around the square. All in all, for me, the time in the van was not worth the sight seeing as better examples are in or closer to Mexico City.
