Full description
The first stop on your tour will be to the caves of Cacahuamilpa. You will enter through the huge rock door to contemplate the majestic scenery formed by the erosion of the water and the movements of the earth. You will then walk through the corridors and enjoy the sensation of penetrating the mountain to discover figures of animals, faces, buildings, and the customs of the Chontal tribes to honor their gods of the underworld. You will then go to the magical town of Taxco to eat at the Hotel Monte Taxco. After lunch, you can take the cable car (not included). Following this, you will take a walk through the city and visit the oldest mining center on the continent, which still stores silver mines that date back to the Colonial Era. Next, you will visit the ex-convent of San Bernardino and the Temple of Santa Prisca, which is a clear example of the fact that the town still retains its colonial style. The church there, which was built in approximately the 18th century, is of Novo-Hispanic Baroque style. You will then have free time to visit Humboldt House, where the famous German expeditionary stayed, and which is currently home to the Museo del Arte Virreinal. Following this, you will visit the different workshops, goldsmiths, and museums of this city (which is also called the City of Silver). At the conclusion of your educational and cultural day out, you will return to Mexico City at approximately 6:00PM.

I loved the Tour since it is private, the treatment of the person who took us was excellent, they do not reach the words to describe the beauty of the tour since they wait for you at the hotel, the arrival at the caves and the passage through Taxco, everything was beautiful!

Tour privado llevado por Francisco, dueño de la empresa. Primeramente se llega a las Grutas de Cacahuamilpa donde se hace el recorrido grupal con guías del sitio. Durante más de dos kilómetros se van viendo las formaciones rocosas y al final hay que regresar la misma distancia. Posteriormente fuimos a comer al Hotel-Spa Montetaxco donde se tiene una vista impresionante de toda la ciudad de Taxco, y de ahí bajamos en el teleférico. Luego llegamos al centro donde está la Plaza Borda y la Iglesia Santa Prisca. Desafortunadamente el muchacho local que debía enseñarnos el lugar tenía prisa y nos dejó tirados después de llevarnos a un tianguis de plata poco interesante y a un mirador desde donde se ve el Cristo de Taxco. Bajando atrás de Santa Prisca hay una tienda de artesanías muy grande conocida como la Casa de la Máscaras que tiene una variedad única. Finalmente callejeando fuimos por el coche y pasamos por la Capilla de la Santísima Trinidad muy bonita.
