  • We bought English-speaking full day tour to Puebla and Cholula. The tour guides were very nice BUT... Our guide's English was very poor and he was bad story-teller. It is sad, but most of the time, we were just waiting for the Spanish-speaking part of the group. The trip was very inefficient: about an hour has been wasted before we left to Puebla then the guides were waiting for individual travelers who went to the bathroom or were late to meet us at the agreed time/place. The tour company has a lot of room for improvement.

  • I appreciate that we were told it takes an hour and a half to get to our destination was totally wrong. Traffic and lateness of people to the bus caused a 2 and a half trip journey. To cap this off we were sitting on a mini bus with no guide informing us of anything that was going on or advising us anything of the countryside we were going through. After being told we would stop for a photo of the volcano it did not happen. On arriving at our first stop we were advised 20 minute toilet break to find ourselves in a typical tourist market place. Okay fine we had a traditional flyer act there and as we stood being accosted by beggars and vendors we were hoping to visit the city that we signed up for. The guide who was on the other mini bus . No we got a 10 minute history speech whilst being approached by vendors about the city and didn't visit at all. Not even a photograph chance of choloula. After an hour of ?? Back on the bus for lunch. Lunch was good but the guide stated one hour for lunch and an hour to walk around with him before leaving for the city. His history on the chapel was great and the square but that's all we were given before returning home on a 3 half hour trip. Sorry for this review but it should not be glorified. For a 13 hour day and only having 1 hour tour of Puebla was a waste of time and money. Yes you get to see the country side which was great but cramped up in a mini bus for so long you got over it as you felt every bump in the road and all of my touring group ended up with sore back or headache . Our ages ranged from 24 to 56 . The city itself would be great to visit on a longer basis. I believe we should of been told what was really to be expected before paying for this tour. I have used Viator tours before and this is why I went with this tour trusting past experience.

  • If there were 0 stars i would give this tour zero. We spent 8.5 hours of the 12.5 hour tour in the bus. Granted CDMX traffic is less than ideal, but this went beyond being stuck in traffic. We spent one hour in Cholula and walked to 2 spots only. We spent 1 hour at lunch at a terrible buffet tourist trap restaurant Restaurant Jaguar in Puebla a foodie town. Then 1 hours walking around Puebla with two stops and 1 hour of free time. Our guide Ernesto was terrible. He couldn't keep our group of eight together. He didn't give us any information about any stops. This tour was a total waste of a day. i would recommend another provider.

  • Nice tour

  • Traveling as a female alone in Mexico City, with no Spanish, allowed me to appreciate these tours. I would not drive in Mexico City, therefore this was the best choice. I reserved this on Christmas day...I expected the cities and towns to be somewhat quiet and dead...but they were packed with locals and tourists. If you want to get out of Mexico City, get some great views away from the city, including the volcanoes...it is worth your while. Fabulous shots of the volcanoes and also life outside Mexico City. The bus driver and tour guides are always excellent and to their best to make it a wonderful experience for all.

    I am a CC points woman, and use my CC as much as possible to earn points towards free flights. This was my 4th and last tour I took. The 3 prior I had no problem paying for anything with CC. But, on this 4th one...the place they took us to lunch, offered a buffet. But, I chose to order off the menu. When it was time to pay, they had issues with their CC machine and I had to go looking for a safe ATM to get cash to pay. This was somewhat an inconvenience, considering you would rather explore...but the guide was EXTREMELY helpful and managed to find a safe area filled with ATM's and bring me to it. I would have preferred to eat in another restaurant near the park though. The restaurant the tour takes you to, was OKAY but empty. Having been in the restaurant business...the less people, the less the food is fresh. Considering the restaurants near the square were packed, I would ask tour guide where to meet, and venture off on my own to eat.

    As other reviews mention, the time to get there and back, is definitely an issue. But again, for me...a woman alone, no Spanish...it served a wonderful purpose. The other tours with Amigos had a large bus. This particular tour, had a smaller Mercedes bus. I would have preferred the larger more roomier bus for such a long trip. The Mercedes bus was very cramped with little leg room. I felt sorry for some of the taller men on board.

    Yes, I would have preferred to have more time to explore in both Puebla and Cholula...but since that was NOT an option for me...this was truly the next best thing. :-

  • Muy buena experiencia

  • Beautiful places as Puebla and Cholula needs a bit more time. I should expect more active approache from our guide.

  • 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.
