Our guide, Manolo was great. He showed us all the best sites and walked us around the city. He told us about the the city, the history of the cathedral, and took us to the best shopping sites. If I had to visit all over again, I would make sure I would ask for him to take us on this tour!
The drive to Taxco was lovely and the driver Manolo was a great guide and companion. Taxco is a beautiful city in a stunning location.
