That was amazing tour to silver city... guide very helpful, just churches were closed due to earthquake... worth to go!
Well run tour with a great guide. Had an amazing day, well worth doing. It is a long day, but gave great perspective with distance and got to see some of Mexico on the drive. Loved Taxaco, amazing town we were all astounded when we say the buildings all on a mountain side. A lot,of steep hills to climb, but well worth it.
A great day out of Mexico City with a lovely guide. She was very pleasant and helpful. Lunch was lovely. I would have liked more time to shop in Taxco - the Silver City, but it was a lovely day.
the tour bus did not provided Air Conditioning , they used our side air, due to the fact that some old people from Ecuador complain of the air, they were old. so it was really hot, my high pressure went up, my diabetes went high, I really became ill coming back to Mexico City, I was assisted to get into the bus, we were drop off close to bellas artes near a pharmacy.
The tour guides microphone did not work, he was all the time very busy leading us through the sights. In Cuernavaca we saw only the cathedral, less than promised.
Two stars at best not because of the lovely cities visited but because of our guide. I could not wait to return to Mexico City to be dropped off. Our lady guide was not accommodating, and was outright rude to some of the passengers. One man wanted to go elsewhere for his meal other than the one the guide selected for us and she just told him bye bye, take care. You had to be there. It was jaw dropping the way she addressed these nice people from all corners of the globe. Another woman who had an issue with her legs was told to hurry. And I cannot stop thinking about the guide's loud speaker blasting in my ear on the hours long ride to and from Taxco. She told me there was nothing she could do, however, she could have placed the speaker in a compartment above her, but she refused to do it. Her English was poor and honestly if I ever got on a bus and she was the guide, I would ask for my money back and find something else to do. Her attitude was not overshadowed by the lovely scenery and history. The only thing you get to see in Cuernavaca is the church and then you get corralled back into the bus. One tip. When in Taxco, take a taxi to the christ monument. The roller coaster ride down will be something you will remember for years on those bumpy stone narrow roads.
Cuernavaca is a useless city in this tour. They take you to one cathedral and that is it. It is an add-on to charge you more for this tour, so dont fall for it. Taxco was interesting - very european and different than Mexico City. It is nice to explore if you have time, and no big exciting plans. Our guide was Roberto, who was awful and ruined the trip for us. He forgot half the group for lunch, barely spoke English and was not knowledgeable. He picked us up 2 hours late and dropped even later. I wouldn't recommend this trip if you have better plans
Guide was very energetic and clearly enjoyed explaining the history of the sites. Was also more than helpful to a sole traveler on the trip unable to speak Spanish.
The scenery on the way to Taxco and the town itself make the tour worthwhile. Downsides-1) nearly 2 hrs to get going to Taxco after we were picked up from our hotel and 2) too much time spent at pre-selected silver shop/restaurant just before arriving to the town (bland food, slow service).
