The tour to Cholula and Puebla was great! However I wish we would have had more time for shopping in Cholula - we decided to climb the pyramid, and did not have any extra time. The tours were nice, but I feel like we wasted a lot of time waiting for the other guests and tourists to come back at the requested time.

Our guide was super knowledgeable and funny. The stops were interesting. You just have to be a bit more lucky with the weather so that the volcano comes into its own (preferably without clouds :p). But no one can control the weather. All in all it was a recommendable tour.

It was really a very nice experience, however within the tour there is no visit to the convent of Sebastian de Aparicio, the body of the saint who died 400 years ago is in a glass urn, if you like to go on your own, the convent has a giant statue on the boulevard 5 de mayo (not very well known)
