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!
Taxco and Cuernavaca are a MUST see in Mex! Just lovely.
I love Taxco. It is a beautiful community. Our guide is excellent. The restaurant where took us served great food. What a lovely 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 tour guide was very informative and friendly.
Wonderful! I met the nicest people from Peru and we did the whole tour in Spanish which was great to be so immersed! I want to live in Taxco! So beautiful and the people were so nice. Had an amazing time and great tour leaders who explained everything along the way. Definitely recommend this trip!
Lovely towns and enthusiastic tour guide. The restaurant that is recommended by the tour guide is good , the food, the view , and the service .
Buen viaje quiZas no vale la pena ir a Cuernavaca solo por la catedral , Taxco, un pueblo mágico. Es un paseo largo por lo que hay que ir preparado y con paciecia . El guía y chofer excelentes
It was an amazing trip! The old murals in Cuernavaca cathedral(assumption of Mary of cuernavaca) was breathtaking and the The Taxco's old silver mining town was simply amazing to spend the whole after noon. The guide was fluent in English and Spanish and grant us enough free time to explore.
