We had a wonderful 1/2 day with Ariel, who picked us up from our hotel in Puebla and shared the sites of Cholula with us. His English was quite good, and he told us much history and culture in an understandable manner. He even managed my request for finding a local macha salsa, by stopping at a local vendor. A really nice, educational and meaningful tour. I highly recommend this company.

The tour was nice, they were punctual with the pick-up time, and return. Mrs. Myriam (guide) and Mr. Marco Antonio (driver) were kind. I would recommend it to acquaintances and family

Everything was very good, our guide Alicia was very kind and clear in her explanation. Puebla is a very beautiful city. Our driver Ignacio deserves a round of applause.

Have a good trip. Guide was very professional and gave a lot of interesting information.
