Each year, monarch butterflies migrate up to 3,000 miles from Canada to Mexico. See the phenomenon with your own eyes on a day trip to a butterfly sanctuary just outside Mexico City, where a guide ensures you learn more than you would if visiting on your own. Stops along the way include the Bridal Veil waterfall and colonial church of San Francisco.

Not the tour for you if you're looking to see butterflies

I booked this trip thinking it would have a primary focus on seeing the butterflies. At the butterfly sanctuary, you are provided with too much time to hike up the mountain to see the butterflies - there are horses available, and that is highly recommended, because the hike could take up to 3 hours. If you do take the horses, prepare to have extra time with not much to do in the waiting area.Then, you go to see a waterfall, and then spend free time in Valle de Bravo - both of which were quite beautiful, but took much longer than the butterfly portion. If you were planning on a 12 hour excursion, it was more like 16 hours, so don't plan on doing anything after. While the tour guides were very kind, it was just mis-advertised.
We had a wonderful and safe trip...

We had a wonderful and safe trip! Thanks to our guide and driver. This is my second time using Viator and I will use again next time I go to Mexico.
