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.
Great tour. Nice architecture and opportunity to buy local products. Gerat guide.
It's amazing how much we fit into the day. Such value for money! Guide (Pepe) was excellent too!
Excellent guide - attentive, detailed, and flexible. Despite all the other tourists were Spanish speakers, the guide spent an equal amount of time with us explaining each site with great details in perfect English. Well done.
Trip was worth the money, enjoyed every minute. Guide was informative and the town was enchanting. Silver was fantastic and I brought some pieces to take home with me. All in all I had a very good day.
Great trip. Excellent guide and day out. More info required on website about pickup times and locations.
I had a great time---even in the rain. I was so impressed with the flexibility of our tour guide, Karen in dealing with the weather, so that somehow we could do all that was planned. She was also, knowledgeable, engaging and obvious happy to be sharing the day with us.
Very nice trip; would like to see more of Cuernavaca. Taxco was gorgeous, breathtaking views, great atmosphere; excellent place selected for lunch. Also, great shopping! Silver designer jewelry and objects of art were beyond superb!!!
Cuernavaca is a quick visit. Taxco is beautiful! Looks like a Mediterranean town in the mountains. Would've liked to stay overnight.

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!

The trip overall was worth it. The beginning of the trip, however, was a bit of a nightmare. The tour bus was 25 minutes late...and we were starting to panic. Luckily, everything worked out and not only was the trip a great time, but the people on the trip were also very nice. One plus was that we left our camera on the tour bus and it was safely and prompty returned to us. For that, we were very grateful.

The trip itself was wonderful but got off to a bad start. The booking indicated that the price included pickup from hotel however on collection I was then informed that there was an additional charge of 30!!!. It had to be paid in cash immediately or no trip!! This was unexpected and madfe a hole in our holiday budget, so if you are planning this trip be warned!!!
The trip was great! Taxco and Cuernavaca are "must see places" in Mexico. The trip began with some confusion since we were given the wrong van and had to stop somewhere in the city centre and exchange the cars, drivers, tour guides and people. After that the trip went smoothly. We started from Cuernavaca which is famous for its beautiful cathedral and flowers all year round. Then we moved to Taxco. For those who are afraid of heights, I must warn that the road is very mountainous, with lots of curves and steep slopes. We started our visit in Taxco from a workshop where we had a short lecture concerning silver and history of the city and then we could purchase silver souvenirs. Then we had a dinner in a restaurant which had a great location with a marvelous view to the city so it's worth taking pictures there. We could also wander in the city centre. Taxco the silver city has indeed a unique atmosphere. Highly recommended trip!

The trip and the tour guide were excellent. The restaurant where we stopped for lunch needs improvement. The food was cold and not according to Mexican standards. Otherwise, the tour was great.
The guide's English was not the greatest and we only understand half of what she said. Nevertheless it was an enjoyable tour and the Mexican people on our bus were interesting and very friendly. We even belted out some karaoke on our way back! The traffic was horrible leaving Mexico City and we only got to Taxco at about 2pm. However our tour guide allowed us to stay in Taxco until 7pm and we got to watch the Easter Friday procession. Taxco was extremely beautiful and a must see.
I recommend this tour. The town of Taxco is beautiful! We would not of visited this town if it wasn't for this tour. Cuernavaca was also nice, Didn't stay there too long. I would recommend elimination the silver stores visit. They try and get you to purchase their silver. I would rather do more site seeing than visit silver stores. They take you to two 2 stores. this trip was long and we didn't get beack to our hotel till after 10pm. If they eliminate the silver stores we would of been back earlier. That is my only complaint.
It was a nice tour, Taxco is a lovely town and is definitley worh going. The stop at Cuernavaca was short in our opinion.
