    The trip was badly delayed in leaving so we were 1hr 15 on the bus before it even left Mexico City. This meant we were very late arriving at the first church so there was a mass in progress and we weren’t allowed in. We hadn’t been told the pyramid tunnels were closed so we had an extremely long day to spend 1 hour at the pyramid. We finally arrived for lunch at 4pm. We didn’t partake of the precooked lunch but everyone said it was poor. The market in Puebla was closed so there was no chance to go shopping. We complained and the guide agreed to drop us off first on our return but it was nearly 12 hours start to finish. The guide was good but really, the organisation and communication on the day was poor.

    Hello, first of all thank you on our tour guide Sergio. He was fantastic. We did the Cholula and Puebla day trip. It was really interesting to hear everything about the mayas and some of the cultures of Mexico/Puebla.

    My husband and I were incredibly excited to go on this tour, but unfortunately we never made it. We picked up at 8:15 and driven to another location where we were supposed to meet up with the tour bus. The tour was scheduled to begin at 9am. The tour operators spent a long time walking around and talking on the phone before they finally returned and asked us if we would be okay sitting in the front and middle seats of another bus, next to the driver. They essentially wanted to fit us onto a different bus so they wouldn't have to take a second one. We agreed to this, however, the second bus never came. Eventually, we were told the second bus was going to pick us up from a different location, so we were driven there. Once we arrived to that location, we again had to wait around on the bus that was supposedly picking us up. The tour operator was on the phone a lot again and didn't seem to know where the bus was. He kept saying they'll be here in 5 minutes, but 10 would go by and it would not arrive. Finally, it was around 10am when we opted to skip the tour altogether. It was a 2-hour one-way drive to the tour destination, and was supposed to be a 10-12 hour tour. That would have put us back in the city at 10pm, which we did not want to do. They agreed to issue us a refund which we requested through Viator and did receive nearly immediately, so that was good. That being said, they did not even offer to drive us back to our hotel. We ended up walking from the pick-up spot and finding our way back to our hotel on foot. I will say that everyone we dealt with was very nice, including the drivers and the woman who appeared to be the one coordinating the plans. That being said, they should have known well in advance how many people would be on the tour, and coordinated how many buses they would need and where the pick-up locations/times for each bus were going to be well in advance. There was no excuse for us having to get up at 6am to get ready to be picked up for a tour at 8am that was supposed to begin at 9am, and then driving us to multiple locations and have us still waiting around at 10am. Very uncoordinated, very poor customer experience.

    It was a very nice tour. We saw many historic churches. It was a whole day event so I recommend this only if you want to spend the entire day visiting different towns in Mexico. Puebla is very beautiful.

    Visit of Puebla was very good but it's a pity to start the visit of the talavera factory. The lunch was very good and Cholula would have needed more time to visit especially the village We spent a nice Day trip

    It was great. Just one issue on the last stop due to the time wasted in Puebla awaiting for the driver. Rather than that, it was great

    The site at Cholulu and historic Puebla. However, my tickets stated 900 a.m. and I had said the four seasons hotel across the street from the Ritz Carlton where I was staying, but the pick up time was never sent to me. It actually was 8:15am!! Also, 13 hours is too long and there was a lot of wasted time. My friend and I were the only English speakers of the 16 in the group. The bad microphone is not loud enough to hear. Also once the explanation was given in Spanish everyone began speaking about it while the guy was trying to repeat it in English. It doesn’t work. When I signed up for the tour online in the states I specifically said English. I do complement Francisco for doing the best he could with a group that were not very disciplined in time or gathering.

    The trip would be chaotic and poorly organized. I understand that the driver was also a guide, so it was difficult. The guide never said exactly what time the departure was, so it was still waiting. In Cholula we waited for an hour for tickets and in the end we saw the arena only behind the fence. We wanted to go to the temple on the hill, but we wouldn't make it because it was only 15 minutes of free time. Finally, we waited an hour for departure. In Puebla we spent the most time in a restaurant, we went on a tour of the city when it was getting dark. We didn't see anything from the city except the temple. We spent 1 hour in the pottery workshop. The trip was extremely long and boring, we saw almost nothing. It was a waste of time. I do not highly recommend this agency.
