    This tour is advertised as a “Cuernavaca and Taxco” tour but was really a Taxco tour plus a 45 minute stopover in Cuernavaca. I booked because I wanted to see murals and the palace/fort in Cuernavaca, but the palace was closed. We saw only the church. I suggested going to a nearby waterfall (Cascada de Anton) but the guide said we did not have enough time. Luckily, Taxco was a much better experience. We had lots of time to explore Taxco and the restaurant chosen by the tour had a spectacular view. My tour guide, Ursula, was great. (December 2020)

    The tour guide was entertaining and very knowledgeable we liked her very much. The driver was like most drivers in Mexico , he drove a bit too fast and too close to the other cars we had a few near misses on the drive too and from our location. The stop in Cuernavaca was too quick. The tour guide explained that a local silver baron built a huge house directly in front of the cathedral that we visited and that the house was now a museum. It was a very interesting bit of history that was important to the two cities we were visiting but yet we had no time to visit. I’d argue that the house would of been a better stop than the cathedral. On the drive to Tacxo our driver was shook down for money at a closed toll station. The driver was told to give money or we would not be allowed to pass all this was done in eyesight of a police officer! Unbelievable, we were told that this was normal. While in Tacxo we were led into a restaurant for lunch. I had not paid for lunch so I assumed I would be able to go to a restaurant of my choice, I was wrong. At the restaurant we were given a menu with only two meal choices. I didn’t think much of eat until the table next to me received the regular menu with numerous choices. The meal was horrible! Literally the worst meal I’ve had in Mexico and I’ve lived here for three months!!

    We spent an owful time in pickup times and waiting’s. Arriving eventually at Taxco at 2pm (including 20mn no more in Cuernavaca). People just seemed not to know who was going and where and when. The lunch was shameful The two stars are for Taxco only. A beautiful city that we saw too quickly

    Nos llevaron a Cuernavaca en un viaje aproximado de 1 hora, visitamos sus Iglesias, luego nos dirigimos a Taxco que es un lugar hermoso por su paisaje, una vista maravillosa con un clima caluroso, gente amable y muchas tiendas de joyería que te brindan a tu llegada tu vasito de Tequila. Toco engreirnos un rato y comprar para engreir a las mujeres de la familia.

    Very bad experience we left behind schedule and had to skip Cuernavac because guide said that all the places that are go-to places to see were closed for renovations? the drive was chaotic at best, there were times we all thought we were going to crash, very fast in and out of traffic just a horrible experience all around, Taxco was a delight but the trip over is something I hope nobody expiereces.

    Taxco is just an amazing little town full of jewelry, history and kind people. We really enjoyed our tour there, the ride was excellent, the guide was always pending on whatever you might need… highly recommended!

    Un día es poco tiempo, taxco merece uno o dos días es increíble!! Cuernavaca también es muy bello y necesitas al menos un día entero para disfrutar

    I had an excellent time, I loved the sites we were taken to, and the guide was great, very informative. I had a really awesome time, and the pictures absolutely amazing. Wish we could spend more time in Cuernavaca, but the main attraction to this tour is Taxco, and you will not be disappointed. They only bad thing I have about this tour is be very very very careful with your belongings, do not leave anything behind, because you will not get it back. I called the phone number provided, right after I got off the bus and noticed I had left a bag of souvenirs, they informed me that they still hadn't reached their second stop to call them back in 10 minutes, so I did, and they were not able to find anything, like it disappeared, disappointed at the level of dishonesty of the tour guides/company, but that's life I suppose! But the tour itself was nice, like I said just be very careful and make sure you don't leave anything behind or you will not get anything back.

    El tour a Cuernavaca y Taxco guiado por Kevin y Ariadna estuvo muy bonito. El bus de lujo y muy cómodo, solo que, el tiempo en Cuernavaca es muy corto, casi no se puede hacer mucho, se entiende por el tiempo que hay que tomar en Taxco, pero entonces deberían de hacer un tour solo para Taxco. Taxco es realmente mágico, y las compras que se pueden hacer son bastantes buenas.
