      My tour guide Pablo was great. Very informative. Loved the tour. Puebla and Cholula were great cities.
      Only thing I would add would be to give the tour guide a microphone while we were walking about Puebla so we could hear him better. I had to stay close to him so I could hear him.

      I really enjoyed this tour. Our tour director, Pablo nicknamed himself Paul McCartney and our drive Arthur was nicknamed as ArthurD2. It works, that's how I remember their names! Pablo had a great sense of humor and it shows how much he enjoys his job. He's welcoming, organized and explained things well. The lunch included was pretty good and I'm glad we decided to make this tour to experience Puebla and Cholula!

      We thoroughly enjoyed our visits to Cholula and Puebla. Cities are rich in history and culture and many beautiful and ornate churches dot the areas. It was a full day of unique and memorable experiences. Our guide, Miguel, did an excellent job shepherding the group and masterfully highlighting details about the iconic landmarks and points of interests. He is knowledgeable, courteous, punctual, and possesses a sense of humor. Cholula is picturesque and peaceful. Its idyllic setting is captivating. The stroll through the open-air market towards the Great Pyramid and Church of Our Lady of the Remedies is a pleasant experience. There, you can taste fried grasshoppers if you’re up for it. The pyramid today resembles a hill. It succumbed to overgrowth many centuries ago. The conquering Spaniards constructed the church on the summit unaware the largest pyramid in the world lay under it. Interestingly the pathway to the church is through a 300-foot archeological tunnel hallowed out in the hill. The shrine itself is beautiful and offers a panoramic view of the surrounding area in all directions. It’s also located at the foot of a still-active volcano, which on a clear day offers a breathtaking view. Unfortunately, on the day of our visit the volcano was masked by cloudy skies. Puebla is equally appealing. Our first stop was lunch, which was excellent. Puebla is a World Heritage Site and birthplace of the Cinco de Mayo annual celebration when Mexican Forces defeated the French Army in the Battle of Puebla. French influence and architecture are prominent throughout the city center. It reminds us of New Orleans. Of all the churches we visited, the Church of Santo Domingo in Puebla is the most beautiful. Its intricate and ornate gold gilded art throughout the church is stunning. The memories we developed will last a lifetime. For these reasons, we found the time and cost of the tour well worth it.

      We really enjoyed the visit to Cholula and the archeological tunnels we took to get there. Cholula is beautiful. There is not enough time to see everything but what we saw was Amazing. Then is was off to Puebla and lunch at a Hotel with an amazing Molé and Chile en Nogada. We then visited churches covered in gold and were able to walk around Puebla’d market to do a bit of shopping. We really enjoyed the experience and our guide, Eduardo, spoke perfect English. Eduardo was an amazing guide and we learned so much. We highly recommend this experience to those that enjoy the activities mentioned above.

      Trip was amazing, Cholula is such a fascinating city, full of color, history and churches, yes, 365 churches to be exact (according to the guide) We got to see both volcanoes. Following Cholula, we then drove to Puebla. Where we had lunch (mole poblano). After lunch, our guide took us to a tile factory and then gave free time to wonder around the town.

      We were pleased that our group of 10 could travel together (they used a bigger bus as we exceeded the 9 person max for the tour) to see another side of Mexico outside of Mexico City. The bus was comfortable and well navigated by our driver. Our guide, Umberto, was a combination of funny, informative and patient with our diverse group of Spanish and English speakers. Lunch was typical for tour groups (not too exciting) but the setting was very interesting--an old convent. The sights and sounds of Puebla and Cholula were worth the 4 hours on the bus. Overall, everyone was pleased with the trip.

      Overview: Another great tour booked through Viator. Our guide, Miguel, was fantastic and totally fluent in English with a great sense of humor. You will visit a number of beautiful churches that rival the most magnificent of Europe on this tour. If you're an old church or architecture fan this trip is for you. Plan on lots of driving about 90 minutes out and 2.5 hours back - that's just the way it is on roads and highways that can be exceptionally bumpy. Purchase the lunch option it's quite good. Lots of walking and climbing so wear good shoes and comfortable clothing. A definite return destination!
      - Departure details: we were picked up on time at our hotel in a small van, then transferred to a mid-sized bus for the trip. About an hour into the trip we stopped at a rest stop for a bathroom break. On the way there Miguel told us about terrain and topography for the area we were driving through. The rest stop is a great place to take pictures of two volcanoes, weather permitting.
      - Cholula: First destination was the Pyramid of Tlachihualtepetl and the Church of Our Lady of the Remedies. To get to the church located at the top of the pyramid which looks like a big hill we went through a 300 foot archeological tunnel. Once we emerged we began our trip up to the top where the church is. It's a good climb but the path is well paved. At the top the church is beautiful with 360 degree views of the Cholula and Puebla region.
      - Puebla: Adjacent to Cholula, we visited another beautiful church then had a good lunch at a local restaurant, followed by two more magnificent churches one being the cathedral in Puebla. We then had about an hour to stroll around the main plaza in Puebla. NOTE: the plaza is beautiful but it is not necessarily a tourist destination in and of itself. It's a shopping and restaurant district for the residents. Nice place but don't expect to buy any souvenirs per se. Additionally, the description of the tour lists a visit to onyx and Talavera ceramics factories, which we did not and after a long day I'm glad we didn't.

      Miguel was a wonderful guide! He seemed genuinely excited about showing us the designated sites and explaining their history. The driver of the van was really good too! sorry...can't remember his name.The churches Miguel showed us were stunning and his knowledge of their history and the art inside was very thorough. I really loved going through the tunnels in Cholula too! If I could change anything, it would be to have more time in Cholula and a simpler lunch in Puebla.

      Great tour with great guide. Really enjoyed the commentary and pace of the tour. It was a bit hectic in Puebla as we did not get too much time to stroll around the town itself, however it does have a great coverage of all important things to see in Puebla. Cholula was worth it. Had enough time to explore the pyramid.

      This is a really wonderful small 12-15 people trip-Sergio was our tour guide, he was so attentive, informative and interesting. Everything was great about this trip, from being picked up at our hotel in the morning and dropped off at the end of the tour, to going to Puebla and seeing the beautiful pottery and visiting the churches in Cholula, don't miss this trip. Loved the hotel in Puebla where we had lunch. This trip has convinced me that small group tours are the way to go. Loved Puebla and Cholula-Thanks Sergio!

      Great tour manager Miguel and driver! The tour was pretty entertaining and well given. The meal included was pretty bland and we would have preferred to have free time to eat somewhere else. The sights and explanations were pretty good. Definitely recomended. One minor thing, the AC of the van did not work properly, making it for a pretty steamy ride.
