Mexitours did a great job of operating this tour and our driver, guide Eduardo was excellent. However, we did not realize that for every visit to the colonial cities outside Mexico City, it would be 3 - 4 hours of driving each way and 2 -3 hours visiting the destination. This was not the fault of Mexitours. The problem is the traffic in and around Mexico City. Our hotel, Hampton Inn, was very good and in a perfect location for walking around the historic city center. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. If we had fully realized the problem of driving in and out of the city, we would have chosen a tour that drove to Puebla, Taxco, etc. and stayed for a night. We would have seen and experienced more.
Our biggest disappointment with the tour was that we were put in a substandard hotel One Alameda after being told that we would be put in the Hampton Inn. Viator's advertisement said Hampton Inn or similar hotel. I called to ask whether the Hampton Inn was available, and Viator confirmed that it was. However, upon arrival we were taken to the One Alameda Hotel, which had no closet, no shelf space, a very small bathroom with a door that did not close, and an air conditioner which worked only when there was movement in the room. We called Hampton Inn and learned that there were rooms available there. We called Viator and requested a change. We were told by the local tour company Viator's agent that we would be moved after one night. However, we ended up incurring 485 in hotel fees after we made the move because neither Viator nor the local tour company would sort out the problem We enjoyed all of the places that this tour took us. The tour guides were friendly and informative. However, we were told the tour would be bilingual however, the guides spoke significantly more in Spanish than in English. Mexico City and environs is a wonderful place to visit.
This is one of the best tours I have taken. The tour company is very professional and personable and go out of their way to make sure everything is right for you. Every site visited was stunning. We were fortunate to have the same guide, Umberto, for 3 tours. He was wonderful and extremely knowledgable about Mexico's history.The hotel used was Hampton Inn and Suites in the historic area. The hotel is wonderful and the service provided was first class.
We did the five day tour and most of it was wonderful - especially the guides and the drivers. My only complaint - and it's a big one - is, there was too much time spent shopping. I have no problem with allowing 15 or 20 minutes here or there but I was very disappointed on the day we went to Taxco. We stopped outside of the city at a restaurant and silver shop. We had lunch and then we were given about an hour to buy silver. Fine. But that meant we had less than an hour in Taxco. My husband and I were very disappointed. If we hadn't already paid for the rest of the tour, we would not have continued. Again, the people and the service were great but it was supposed to be a tour, not a shopping trip.
Everything went smoothly from airport pickup to tour arrangements. Though the mix of tourists differed each day, we happened to get the same guide for the 4 escorted trips Miguel - and he was great. We liked the mixture of day trips and time to ourselves. Hotel Hampton Inn was excellent - and location perfect. Tour was an excellent value, costing little more than hotel alone if we had booked it separately.
Even though traffic is really really bad in Mexico City and nearby cities, specially during the Day of the Dead celebration and a Formula1 race going on, I still recommend the tour.
There were a few mess ups like having had our hotel changed after it had already been confirmed, so we had to change hotels in the middle of the trip because we had already booked extra nights, having to wait 2 hours to be picked up upon arrival at the airport because the person of contact didn't show up, not to say the traffic related issues that could be avoided with better logistics planning.
Yet I must say the tour agency ended up making up for it with its assistance during the trip.
This package was well put together on the whole I thought and covered as much as possible in that time. Be prepared for long days with a fair bit of travelling. All but one of my travelling companions each day were Spanish speakers but the bilingual guides ensured we got all the information during the tours on 3 out of the 4 tour days. On the half day I was the only English speaker and the guide struggled with limited English very apologetically and I struggled with limited Spanish. We did not seem to cover all that was indicated in the blurb and that day was a little disappointing especially after the highlights of the previous days. The Hotel Zocalo was in a great location if you are not wanting the upbeat end of town with coffee shops, restaurants and an active nightlife. It was a good choice for my needs and at the centre of all the action I could cope with. The view from the restaurant at breakfast is magnificent...the best on the Zocalo, and the hotel staff were genuinely friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
This is an excellent package for single travellers with limited time.
