Depart Mexico City early in the morning for the transfer to Cuernavaca, acclaimed throughout Mexico as the “City of Eternal Springtime” for its year-round warmth.

Next, head to the beautiful city of Taxco, known as the "Silver Capital of the World." Visit the famous parish church of Santa Prisca to admire its impressive Churrigueresque style.

Taxco is really nice!, the time in Taxco was perfect (around 45min), no more time can be given due to the long distance from CDMX. In Cuernavaca the Cathedral was really nice, apart from that there was not much more to see, or we did not receive guidance on what can be seen (better to search in advance) during free time (around 30min). The arrival time to CDMX is around 8:30pm Overall it was a Nice experience and the Guide was really friendly and helpful

Tour services met expectations: the guide Alicia was obliging and helpful in explaining everything, right from the very start of the tour. She gave snippets of information about the places as the tour van moved along the historic center. The driver is friendly and took us safely to and fro, and he was always available. Logistics were well managed. Charming Taxco is certainly the highlight of the trip!

Started off a little slow but got better towards the end :)

It was a little messy at the start but as the trip officially began, it was obvious that the guide was extremely dedicated and he attended to everyone's needs. He speaks pretty good english and is a fantastic driver as well. Taxco and Cuernavaca are both very beautiful places as well, albeit really hot. A lot of sceneries and gorgeous streets, I really enjoyed it :)
