Overview

Visit two historic cities on a 10-hour tour from Mexico City to Cuernavaca and Taxco, and spend the day exploring colonial architecture, walking cobblestone streets, and browsing the beautifully-worked silver of the ‘World Silver Capital.’ This full-day tour includes a buffet lunch and guided tours of each town, as well as pickup and drop-off at Mexico City hotels.
  • Full-day tour from Mexico City to Cuernavaca and Taxco
  • See two colonial-era cities
  • Guided tours of historic sites
  • Visit a top silver-producing town
  • Buffet lunch included
  • Pickup and drop-off at selected hotels
Start with pickup at your hotel in Mexico City between 8:30am and 9:15am (or make your way to a centrally-located meeting point), then begin the 53-mile (86-km) trip to Cuernavaca, the capital of Morelos state. Upon arrival in the city—often called the “city of the eternal spring” for its mild climate—tour the most important landmarks of Cuernavaca’s colonial era.
Visit one of the oldest cathedrals on the continent, see the beautifully-preserved gothic mudejar architecture of the Palace of Cortes, and take in some of the city’s elegant streets and mansions.
The next stop is the Sierra Madre town of Taxco, where the mountains offer a dramatic backdrop for colonial churches and classic, whitewashed homes. You’ll visit the Baroque Santa Prisca Cathedral, and stroll cobblestone streets to silver workshops—Taxco silver is exceptionally pure, and this is the perfect place to pick up up unique silver souvenirs and gifts. Pause for a buffet lunch of stews, salads, pasta, and fresh desserts, then begin the return trip to Mexico City, where this tour concludes.

Mexitours, again....This time the tour guide was good but not great. Lunch was a buffet and it was not ok. Cuernavaca is a nice place and Taxco, known for the silver, was ok. I know this tour companies has to send tourists to the COOP's but sometimes they are too pushy.

Julieta our guide was very knowledgeable about history of the areas we drove through. There were only two of us English speakers and she was careful to translate her comments for us personally. The scenery we saw was spectacular and Taxco itself was absolutely beautiful. I plan to return.

Very disorganized company - tour started 2 hours late. Instead of English tour as it was requested we got into Spanish speaking group and the guide struggled to constantly translate between languages which resulted in disappointing and incomprehensive experience.
