Full description
This is a full-day tour that begins between 06:30-07:00, right at the lobby of your hotel, ending between 20:30 - 21:30. After a one hour drive, you'll stop for breakfast (not included) at a restaurant in Chilpancigo. The tour will continue with a drive along the mountainside, until you reach 5,000 feet and arrive at Taxco de Alarcón.  Once in the city, there will be a few stops at a couple of silver stores where you'll receive a short explanation about the silver jewelry industry, and have some time for shopping. Afterwards, you'll go on a walking tour of the city with your guide, heading to the downtown area with its cobblestone streets that wind narrowly up and down the hillside, until you get to the magnificent Temple of Santa Prisca on Borda Plaza, which was declared a National Historical monument.  Then you will have some free time to grab lunch on your own before making your way back to Acapulco
