Full description
Depart Mexico City early in the morning for the transfer to Cuernavaca, acclaimed throughout Mexico as the “City of Eternal Springtime” for its year-round warmth.

Upon arrival, you will go to one of oldest cathedrals on the American continent at the Recinto de la Cathedral complex, built by some of the earliest Christian Missions to Mexico in the 16th century.

Next, head to the beautiful city of Taxco, known as the "Silver Capital of the World." Visit the famous parish church of Santa Prisca to admire its impressive Churrigueresque style. Then, stroll down cobblestone streets, peering at the silver work of skilled craftsmen.

Admire Taxco’s striking cathedral, before enjoying some free time to shop for precious silver at affordable prices in the outdoor markets. Your guide will tell you about the frequent cultural events held at many of the city squares and theaters, and as the the day winds down, take you to one of the bars near the main plaza to enjoy the sunset.

Taxco is really nice!, the time in Taxco was perfect (around 45min), no more time can be given due to the long distance from CDMX. In Cuernavaca the Cathedral was really nice, apart from that there was not much more to see, or we did not receive guidance on what can be seen (better to search in advance) during free time (around 30min). The arrival time to CDMX is around 8:30pm Overall it was a Nice experience and the Guide was really friendly and helpful

Tour services met expectations: the guide Alicia was obliging and helpful in explaining everything, right from the very start of the tour. She gave snippets of information about the places as the tour van moved along the historic center. The driver is friendly and took us safely to and fro, and he was always available. Logistics were well managed. Charming Taxco is certainly the highlight of the trip!
