Great program- good guide

I was hoping this was a multilingual program but others in the group were Spanish speakers. Emmanuel- the guide was fantastic. He spent time with us specifically talking about the heritage and history of the places we went to, and explained this to us in English later. Time in Cuvernavaca was a little less, but is understandable due to the distances involved.

If you are going to Mexico, you've got to go to Taxco!

Taco is a delightful old-European-style city that was a unique experience. It's beautiful to see and a marvelously relaxing day. The shop people are very warm and down-to-Earth without that oversell pressure that is typical in Mexico. Our guide was an affable young man, glad to answer questions, who gave us some unique perspectives. I could have skipped Cuernevaca, but at lease we didn't spend much time there...
