We had an amazing day with Francisco who was very caring and organised. Francisco went an extra mile and prolonged the trip for us to have the full experience even though we lost some time due to traffic accident. Alberto who was the guide at Cholula was absolutely amazing and very knowledgable. Puebla is a must see too - it is such a beatiful place! We can only recommend this trip!

A very beautiful day with Javier who transported me with a lot of kindness, kindness and professionalism. The guide Alberto a Chamula allowed me to immerse myself in the history of this city of pyramids and churches. I encourage you to choose them ...
