  • I won't give this 5 starts, because the restaurant where the tour take us, was a complete disappointment, Restaurante Boutique el Jaguar, is an awfull restaurant, and the guide basically shut the option to eat in another restaurant, saying is really good, and we don't know other options. is so bad that is not even in trip advisor. Why this take 2 stars away, because the Puebla food is suppose to be so good, and for me it was awfull

    besides that the tour was really on time, really neat, the guide was amazing, the schedule was always on time. Puebla is a beautiful city. and Cholula worth the stop.

  • Amigo Tours it is! Jocelyn, our tour guide is very nice, friendly and knowledgeable about the history of Mexico. Highly recommended!

  • Very well organized--Great guide Joselyn. Highly recommended tour -- there is traffic getting in and out of Mexico city but Cholula and Puebla are worth a visit

  • The tour was nice and we love Puebla. Would have loved to spend more time there, But the Jaguar restaurant where we were brought was really bad and not worth the price which is separate from the tour cost. Food was bad and the soup, you could not even take a second spoon. I would have rated it more if the lunch where we are forced to eat is even reasonable. This is really pulling the tour down. Even the others who were with us are shaking their heads.

  • The tour was fine, tour guide wasn't great.

  • The trip was a waste of time and money, and the guides, like all too many, are not really concerned with you having a genuinely good time. For example, our tour guide tried to tell us the terrible tourist trap restaurant they took us to was "the best in Puebla." This was a flat, bold-faced lie.

  • Thoroughly enjoyed the trip. It was sad to see the damage to the architecture because of the recent earthquake. Was a long day. I recommend this trip to those who are spending few days in Mexico city.

  • Puebla and Cholula are well worth taking this tour. Our bus was about 15 minutes late, but given the traffic in Mexico City this was not bad. Our tour guide was GREAT! We learned so much about the history of Mexico during the drive to Mexico. This is an all day tour.
    We did not get back until about 8:30pm, but it was worth it.

  • 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.
