The trip was ok but bus comfort bad, air con was on and freezing us and on the way back they put a spanish move on with very loud volume. The lunch place was not good either, it’s at this hotel which looks nice but if you don’t like typical Puebla food it’s not a great choice.

I thought the tour was good and we learned many things, however we would have liked to have more free time in Puebla. On the Bus, the last seats cannot be displayed well out because they have a set. The group was too big which makes dead times waiting for others.

It was interesting to see the different churches. We also saw an Azulejos factory and the Cholula pyramid, which is under an earth mound. Everything was interesting, but not a must.
