5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

Hotel Geneve excellent. Pablo a wonderful guide. However the day we visited the pyramids was a weekend and also a National holiday. We queued for 2 hrs and did not reach the top as our tour group had to leave. Very disappointing. May I suggest the Pyramid day tour be listed on a weekday and not a public holiday in future.? The tour to Taxco Silver City was particularly enjoyable. We did find after 3 very long 10-11 hour days we had to miss the City cultural shorter tour the next day to have a day of rest!! (But I must mention my sister and I are 80yrs - so can be forgiven!) We did the hop on/off bus the next day. Overall a wonderful few days in a lovely city. Thankyou Pablo.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

This was an excellent trip and very good value for the money. The hotel was well-equipped and conveniently located adjacent to the Zócalo. The dining area on the roof terrace provided stunning views of the cathedral and the surrounding area. With regard to the tours, they were excellent and the guides were well-informed and professional. The only criticism I have is that there are some long trips of 11 hours or more and if you have them back-to-back as we did it is grueling. In fact we missed the second trip to Cuernavaca because we were knot ready for a long day in the hot sun while we were on vacation. However, this is my only criticism and I would definitely use this tour company again.
