      Enjoyed the trip in Puebla and Taxco. Got to taste the authentic Mexican food. I love Taxco, feels like you're in Santorini Greece. I highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide Antonio made a special effort to show my husband and I this beautiful church in Puebla while waiting for the other people in our group tour at our meeting place.

      Ernesto was incredibly attentive and knowledgeable. He was careful to keep us safe but, allowed us to have a good time. His English was wonderful and much appreciated. If you have time do both days for sure but, if you only have one day, it has to be Cuernavaca and Taxco. Truly amazing in every way!

      The tours destinations are good to see.

      Bad Point: Amigo tours uses glorified city buses.
      They had no A/C on buses I took on 3 of 4 different tour dates
      Most days were 85 degrees +.
      Taxco was 5 hr bus ride in 100 degree heat.
      NO A/C !!!
      Amigo Tours cares little about customers.

      The experience was very different both days as the first guide was terrible. He didn't speak english, was not knowledgeable and organized stops very badly.
      The worst was the lack of AC in the bus both days in 30 degree C temperatures. Taxco and Puebla are amazing! They picked us up from our hotel.

      This is a two day tour. Tour guides Francisco and Kevin were outstanding. First day tour with Francisco to Puebla and Cholula was excellent but got delayed due to picking up people at various locations. This was the problem with all tours I purchased from this company. Coming back got caught in the traffic and it was 5 hours of torture sitting in the bus. Wish we had taken a break in between. This was unusual. On second day tour with Kevin was good and he is very good. People person! He even accommodated drivers female friend to sit on the front passenger seat and he sat on a small chair in between the driver and passenger in the front. Very uncomfortable and not safe. Overall tour is good provided safety factors are taken into account.

      Do not use Amigo Tours. The tour guide didn't say much. You are pretty much on your own. Save your money and book it somewhere else.
