This was a very interesting and exciting trip. The visit to Lady of Guadalupe was amazing with all the different history we learnt. Then the trip to teotihuacan was also fascinating. I think the reason we enjoyed this trip was because our tour guide Alexa was VERY knowledgeable about each visits and she made everything seem so interesting. There was no issues with her language as she spoke English very well and also did both English and Spanish in the bus. Thank you Alexa for the amazing trip. It was definitely worth the money! Exactly, what we asked for, was done as on the trip description.
