Monarch Butterfly Tour
, Feb 2020
Wonderful experience. Quite a long day from Mexico City (over 12 hours) but guides were very good, had plenty of time to view butterflies while walking and stationery (close to an hour). Recommend horses if a bit unsteady on feet. Nice lunch included.

The trip to the butterflies was 3 hours with pick up along the way. We then had to walk a total of 8,5km to get to the butterflies - so not just a 45 min walk. If you have people on the trip that are unfit and too old to walk this, by the time you are back for lunch they have not even got half the way. We then had to sit 2,5 hours to wait for them to come back and have their lunch. We then got taken to a town El Oreo to see some buildings waste of time when you are already almost 3 hours delayed. By the time we got back to the city it was 8h30 at night - over 13 hours since pick up. I was disappointed to also not see that many butterflies as the season was almost over - mid March. Would not do it again

The guide and the driver was very friendly and gave me a lot of information. Though you can not see the butterfly very good the trip is very interesting.

I was disappointed with this tour. It is stating that a local guide is included but I'm not sure about the definition. My guide picked me up at my hotel on time, he didn't speak much English but he had a translator so it's OK. But when we arrived the butterfly sanctuary, I was told I had a local guide there. i was confused and I'm still confused why I needed a local guide there. That local guide didn't speak English at all and you really don't need anyone to show you the way you should walk because the trail is very obvious so it's very difficult to get lost. And if it was easy to get lost there, the guide who picked me up should know the way. And in the end, I had to tip that local guide! For what???? For walking by my side?

This was the best tour we took! It was a relaxing day out of the city with a fresh delicious lunch. There was horseback riding and not to forget the miraculous butterflies. It was amazing to see.

Really good experience. Guides picked us up on time at our hotel and brought us to Sierra Chincua reserve. The driver/guide provided by the company was not that knowledgeable but the guide that we met at the butterfly reserve was very knowledgeable.
