Our guides were Isabel and Abel, they really have a good back and forth, good natured joking with each other. Abel was the driver and I have to hand it to him and his skill. Isabel was very knowledgeable and professional. She had very good insights for every place we went. I liked that we were given plenty of opportunities to go to the restroom. I'd have liked to have given more time at the Shrine of Guadalupe.

Leonardo and Mario were wonderful. I accidentally bought the tour without the museum, and was sooo happy to find I think I would have enjoyed it less than the free time I had to explore Coyoacán while others were in the museum. Saved me a few bucks on tour price and that neighborhood was so much fun with all types of food and shopping.

If you are in CDMX and want to experience Cholula and Puebla as a day trip...then this is the tour you were looking for. Don't hesitate to book it. It is a private tour which means you will maximize the day by spending more time in both cities.

Francisco was super knowledgeable, friendly, and hilarious. Abel is the MAN behind the wheel. We had a great time, would recommend to anyone visiting CDMX!

Great experience! Tour guide Fernando was outstanding!!!
