A Long, Full Day. Well Worth the Price and the Time
Puebla and Cholula Day Trip from Mexico City | Feb 2020
A very full day that started at 08:15 and went well after 20:00. The van was comfortable and meeting new people (both English and Spanish speaking) was very pleasant. A beautiful drive through the pine-forested mountains with views of Iztaccíhuatl. It was MUCH appreciated that plenty of opportunities for bathroom and water breaks were provided.
Cholula is a delightful town in and of itself, however, the "pyramid" and the Church of Our Lady of Remedies on top were great. Please be advised that you will be disappointed not to find much of an actual stonework pyramid. The original structure is still there but has been buried by centuries of dirt, but you will realize that the structure underneath is massive. The trip to the top (where the Church is) can be gruelling. The path is very long and steep but it is a good surface and the views from the top should NOT be missed.
Where to start with Puebla. As much as you will see on the tour, it will only lead you to realize that you could spend days in this city. Several beautiful and historic churches, wonderful paseos and shopping areas, a vibrant central plaza, great food and wonderful people.
We headed back home at 5 PM totally exhausted but well satisfied.
The tour company will pick you up and return to your hotel, but it might be easier to Uber to the central departure point as you may be the last one delivered back after the trip. That may add as much as an hour or more to you day and you will be tired. ...Read more
