The tour to Cholula and Puebla was great! However I wish we would have had more time for shopping in Cholula - we decided to climb the pyramid, and did not have any extra time. The tours were nice, but I feel like we wasted a lot of time waiting for the other guests and tourists to come back at the requested time.

Partly because of bad luck with traffic (which is not the fault of the organiser obviously) but also because the departure is 1 hour later than announced as the bus waits for all people to arrive at the pickup point. Maybe better to just go there on your own and eventually get a local uide there.
