Full description
Start your trip in downtown Mexico City where you'll take a scenic drive to the “silver city”. The city is nestled on a hillside with winding cobblestone streets, tile roofed buildings, cozy squares and a strong Old World ambiance that has survived through hundreds of years. Visit one of Mexico’s grandest churches, Santa Prisca. It was built in 1759 by French immigrant Jose de la Borda who literally stumbled upon a huge silver spring. Taxco is known worldwide for its quality silver mines and shops, you will have the opportunity to see and buy art pieces from Mexican artisans.

Had a great time with Carlos during our trip! He was very knowledgeable and full of information on the sights and history. Definitely recommend checking out this tour if you’re looking for a fun day trip from Mexico City! Also, our driver was fantastic. There are some winding roads up to Taxco, but we were never worried!

Great program- good guide

I was hoping this was a multilingual program but others in the group were Spanish speakers. Emmanuel- the guide was fantastic. He spent time with us specifically talking about the heritage and history of the places we went to, and explained this to us in English later. Time in Cuvernavaca was a little less, but is understandable due to the distances involved.

If you are going to Mexico, you've got to go to Taxco!

Taco is a delightful old-European-style city that was a unique experience. It's beautiful to see and a marvelously relaxing day. The shop people are very warm and down-to-Earth without that oversell pressure that is typical in Mexico. Our guide was an affable young man, glad to answer questions, who gave us some unique perspectives. I could have skipped Cuernevaca, but at lease we didn't spend much time there...
