Overall rating

(60 reviews)

It was very nice, I only recommend that if you go for a short time you think carefully about what day to do it or whether to do it at all because it is a trip that takes 12 hours. So practically only that can be done in one day, but it was very nice and interesting, I recommend it

Amazing, my only recommendation is not to go to Taxco on Sundays! The traffic is terrible. It took 4,5 to return. Carlos and Eli were great! After a very exhausting day they kept their professionalism and good sense of humor.

If you can only do one day-trip from Mexico City, this would be the one that I recommend. Taxco blew us away. Our guide, Adara, was amazing.

Excellent! The guide Ruben gave us very interesting information and showed us very beautiful places in Taxco and Cuernavaca.

The guide Carlos is excellent and the driver Francisco is both very friendly and nice, attentive, a perfect duo.
