Know More about this tour

You will start driving from Mexico City and cross the highway with the mountains in the backdrop, towards the east side of the city. Admire breathtaking views and beautiful scenery of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl volcanoes and get to the town of Cholula. Here, you'll admire the city, learn a bit more about it and see some of its hundreds of churches.

Then, you’ll head to see the impressive church of Santa María de Tonantzintla which is of indigenous Baroque style and is an impressive building. It stands out for its interior decorated in gold and the wealth of its elements.

After visiting Tonantzintla, you’ll head to the city of Puebla, located just a 15-minute drive away from Cholula. Puebla is popularly known as the “City of Angels." Here, you can enjoy a delicious lunch (not included). The variety of cuisine is rich in Puebla so you can choose from a simple and traditional “semita“ to an exquisite and laborious “mole Poblano.“

After lunch, you will have a walking tour through the beautiful historic center of this city where you can see the buildings from the sixteenth to the eighteenth century, and visit the Plaza de Armas , the Cathedral and the Church of Santo Domingo. Other points of interest you'll visit include the craft market where you can find beautiful works in the traditional Talavera or delicious sweets such as sweet potatoes prepared in different flavors.

After a wonderful day exploring and learning a bit more about Cholula and Puebla, you will get back to Mexico City where your tour ends.

  • Too much driving for too little payoff. At least 2/3 of the time was driving. I couldn't wait to get back to the hotel.

  • The Tour From Hell began with the bus being 20 minutes late--and me being 10 minutes early, as requested on the sign-up form. Because of the earthquake many weeks ago, most of the sites we were to visit were closed or offered severely limited access--though this did not stop Amigo from taking us to these places. 'Amigo' should have known this--all is posted on the internet.
    The guide was very pushy and came complete with an English vocabulary of 200 words, a high-pitched nasal voice prone to talking non-stop, and a bullhorn-on-the-bus that enlarged her voice tenfold. This amused a few but annoyed many. When her voice wasn't being loudly broadcast, Mexican music of the banalest kind was. Evading being 'walked around' by an unknowledgeable guide demanded excessive energy. When finally a meeting point and time was eventually arranged for my waywardness, both bus and guide were ALWAYS late--thus leaving me to wonder if the bus had arrived early and I had been left behind. No chance--no need for my concern. On ALL occasions, the bus was late.
    Returning to Mexico City in the dark, the bus hit a bump' at a very high speed, catapulting all the rear seat passengers most of whom were senior citizens, though one was a 15-month-old child to the ceiling, injuring some and tearing the clothing of others. This was quickly 'smoothed over' by the tour guide.
    Once in the city, the bus did not return us to our pick-up points, but instead conveniently dumped the passengers at a Metro Station. As I was only too happy to get off this tour bus from hell, I returned home to Coyoacan via Metro--though it took 45 minutes longer than if I had been returned to my initial location.
    The sites we visited as the group were not the most important or best sites in the two cities, nor were they open to the public. Much could have been adjusted had Amigo consulted up-to-the-minute information on various online sites. Even bad traffic in Mexico City could have been avoided. No knowledge of this technology seemed apparent. Instead, the bullhorn ruled.
    My advice: avoid this tour at all cost. Run for your life.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Not worth it if you like your freedom and value your time. I would suggest to hire car and explore Puebla and Cholula by yourself , we spent more time in transport rather than exploring beautiful places.

    Positive: guide was nice , generally Puebla is worth of seeing and Cholula

    Negative: not organize pick up and drop off. Pickup we choose was in Polanco , we had to search for a bus and then we arrived to city center where we had to wait for another bus which was late and tour representatives was not really organized , people were a bit confused. We didnt spend too much time in each place, was very limited free time . Lunch : i didnt like that tour company has marketing agreement with one of buffet places in Puebla and all had to eat there i just left eat in other place because didnt feel comfortable . We didnt seen Puebla just few streets and Cathedral and left 1h for a free time which is nothing .

  • Great day out and really good value. Our guide Sergio was fantastic - really knowledgeable, friendly, welcoming and spoke excellent English. There's a lot to see in Puebla but the day was a really good introduction to it and we saw some stunning churches and beautiful buildings. The restaurant chosen for lunch was really good - clean and had a good selection of traditional food. I also really enjoyed the journey there and back - watching roadside life and seeing just how big Mexico City is. We visited shortly after the earthquake but that didn't impact our visit. The best way to help the country get back to normal is to visit and spend your tourist pesos. You'll be made very welcome.

  • Very nice tour. I saw must of colonial history . Amazing cities, amazing buildings and gardens, beautiful streets and markets. You can see old library, big churches from the hills, try local food, buy atractive home made souvenirs. Our guide was perfect and very comfortable trip. I like this trip and recommend it to everybody who visit Mexico.

  • Great experience and nice escape from Mexico City!

  • Excellent.

  • The tour guide was amazing. He translated everything in Spanish and English. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. The tour organizer was great as well. I saw her running around before the buses left making sure very thing was good to go. The bus was easy to recognize and they did a great job at giving us time to look around. The drive there was longer than I expected so the tour definitely took all day 8:30 AM till 8 PM. I'm happy I got to go see both places, but I think it would be worth my while to go back to Puebla on my own to see the city more.
