Puebla: Cholula and Atlixco Private Tour with Food Tastings
- Private group
- Pickup available
- Duration: 7 hours
First, Tip tours counter at the Tourist info centre at Puebla zocalo could not find our booking. We turned out to be the only ones booked in English. Instead of the double decker bus, they put us in with the Tranvia spanish tour. They did send an English guide along with us. But the only sights the tour visits are the Acatapec and the Tonantzitlan churches at Cholula. They just left us free for 3 hours at the cholula ( concordia) zocalo to see San Ganriel, pyramid/church , archeological zone, tunnels, eat or shop as we wish. The bus with its wooden seats was rather uncomfortable. Possibly a better idea to take the train or a taxi to cholula and do on own. Or perhaps the double decker bus tour that we were actually supposed to be in might be better than what we were sent on.
Este passeio é perfeito para quem passará mais de 3 dias na CDMX e quer absorver mais da história mexicana, além de quebrar a rotina da cidade grande. Puebla e Cholula ficam a 2h30min da CDMX , então a viagem de ônibus fica um pouco chatinha, nada que uma soneca não resolva (condições da via são excelentes). A Amigos Tour foi super pontual, nosso guia Emanuel nos contou toda a história das cidades, com muito entusiasmo e “sentimento”. Foi um ótimo guia. Pontos positivos: Puebla é linda, suas ruas coloridas; o mercado é mais em conta do q CDMX e os doces são deliciosos.. Cholula é história pura...és Pontos negativos: poderia sair mais cedo de CDMX, pegamos mt trânsito na ida e na volta. Podia ter colocado mais um guia, éramos um grupo de 35 pessoas com apenas um guia...
We had a wonderful time doing the tour with our fantastic tour guide Alberto in Cholula and Francisco in Puebla. They are so patient and knowledgeable too. A must do your when you are in Mexico City. We lost our drone in Cholula and thanks to the can-do attitude/persistence of Alberto that he was able to retrieve it the next day.
Great experience. The bus took us to some lovely churches and had a lovely guided tour through the tunnels of Cholula. Learned a lot about the history of the Pyramid and about local tradition and culture through our private English guide who was a local from the area. Great value for money.
The trip was ok but bus comfort bad, air con was on and freezing us and on the way back they put a spanish move on with very loud volume. The lunch place was not good either, it’s at this hotel which looks nice but if you don’t like typical Puebla food it’s not a great choice.
