This was an enjoyable trip, filled with excitement and the great food of Puebla. Not enough time was given at the Cholula temple. Wish we had a chance to explore the pyramids which the big church was built upon. I feel like we missed out on ancient history here. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable on pre-Columbian history. The driver should have used a seat belt while driving on the highways... a bit unsafe driving at top speed.

Nice three star tour. 4th star is for our guide Gabriela. She was wise and nice, she made it interesting. But it was big group tour with one guide for two language groups. A lot of waiting and little problems. Food was very good.

We spent a wonderful day with Carlos and Christian. The many sights together with the really interesting information and the super nice way. Just perfect. Thank you for this experience.
