I hired 3 tours with this agency and this was the best !!! Clearly, the guide makes a difference. Marcos (guide) and Juventino (driver) made us enjoy and get to know the places we went to. The most important thing was that we did not run, we walked quietly, until he recommended what we could do in our free time.

This was one of the best things I did in Mexico. If I were you, I would take the tour bus (which concludes the day in Taxco) and stay overnight in this beautiful city for at least a couple of days. It reminded me of Monaco, near the French Riviera, with the beautiful town escaping into the mountains and the winding streets. One thing on that - definitely wear shoes that are good for walking! Going anywhere in the town is very winding and you will get your exercise. The city was gorgeous and my guide was great my only regret was not staying longer.

The tour is good, Don Ignacio our guide knows a lot, the departure is a bit disorganized, but what is very bad is the food restaurant, to not be included they give you a single-course menu, which is expensive, And bad far from the quality of Mexican dishes and the attention is very poor too. In short, our excellent guide does not include better food, let people look for other options and not that bad
