Clemente could not have been more helpful, fun, knowledgeable, easy to understand and all in all was the highlight of our trip making this adventure so enjoyable!
The Majestic hotel location was great but the rooms and food was disappointing .. clean but dated, english by hotel folks was marginal, service people friendly and prompt, room at end of the trip was more comfortable then room at beginning on the 6th floor.
Claudio, the driver did a wonderful job making the drive safe, and he was an added plus.
The hotel in Valle de Bravo was charming and the indigenous people made it even more enjoyable. Cladia, the manager, and her assistant, Evelyn, was wonderful and helpful to all participants. Both spoke excellent english and were always looking to make everyone comfortable. Even the chef, who also spoke excellent english was always looking to please.

This was truly an outstanding trip. EcoColors Tours did an amazing job. Our Monarch Butterfly tour was March 11th through March 17, 2017. I cannot say enough good about our guide Clemente! Clemente was an exceptional guide for our Monarch Butterfly tour. Seeing tens of thousands of monarch butterflies was the highlight of our time in Mexico. We toured the National Museum of Anthropology and Valle de Bravo. We visited Piedra Herrada Sanctuary the first day and Capulin Sanctuary the second day, both in the mountains on horseback. He drove very safely and frequently paused to help us take the best photos. In addition, Clemente was our guide for the Metropolitan Cathedral of the Assumption of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven, National Palace in Mexico City to see Deigo Rivera's collection of murals The History of Mexico, and to watch Mexican soldiers take down the Mexican flag in the Zocalo square. Our guide, Clemente, was knowledgeable spoke excellent English, patient, and always accommodating. On our flight home, Clemente helped us through the airport. We highly recommend EcoColors and Clemente! Thank you

This was truly an outstanding trip. EcoColors Tours did an amazing job. Our driver Alberto did a great job. I cannot say enough good about our guide Clemente! He added things onto the trip. We visited extra museums and toured Mexico City and Valle de Bravo. The first day I was not prepared for the altitude 10,800 feet and had to stop part way on the hike with butterflies there. Before the hike the horse ride was about 30 to 45 minutes. The second day at Capulin Sanctuary, the trip was much more difficult. Much more aggressive climbing up and down the mountain with the horses. The trips up and down, were each two hours. We had some seasoned horse people who agreed that it was not an easy trip. But it was only a short hike up to the butterfly sanctuary once we arrived. Spectacular! Thousands/millions of butterflies. On our free day I asked Clemente if we could go parasailing. Monte Alto, near Valle de Bravo, is the best parasailing in Mexico and one of the top places in the world. He had not organized it before, but he did it for four of us. It was really incredible. Fairly inexpensive - US 80- pp including a selfie stick where they give you a micro SD card with both audio/video and photos. Out flight home was at 8:00 AM which meant Clemente had to pick us up at 4:45 AM and help us through the airport. Highly recommend EcoColors and Clemente!
