In general I liked the tour, they called us the day before at the hotel to tell us the time they would pick us up and they were punctual. The walk to reach the waterfalls and pools of hierve el agua was not as strenuous as I had thought, however it is never specified that no one will accompany you, there is no guide and the tour does not include it, I did not like that. The visit to Teotitlan for textiles was very interesting and the factory tour, although it was good, is very basic. In general, well, it seems to me that with a guide, the tour would be much better.

Hierve El Agua has changed in 10 years (the last time I came)! Much more touristy and therefore much more crowded but still worth it. The visit to discover the methods of coloring wool was super interesting, I really found it surprising to see with which elements of nature it is possible to dye wool in so many colors. The mezcal factory was a bit fast… and less interesting I find. Regarding the logistics, we called the day before to have confirmation of the pick-up time because we had not received confirmation and we then received a whatsapp message from the local partner to confirm the exact time, which was respected so organization at the top! The driver explained to us well (in Spanish and English) the different stops we were going to make and at each stop, the time we would spend there so everything was very clear. I recommend this excursion!

This tour was a lot of fun. The weaving was a great experience, the Hierve el Agua were beautiful. Afterwards we could have lunch in a restaurant for a fee. The buffet was delicious. Finally, there was the tasting. That was fantastic too. The entire tour was a complete success and highly recommended.
