Alexandra, our guide, was fantastic! She is so nice and professional, well versed also in English :) Our driver’s also good in what he’s doing, even if the trip consists of twisty roads, we felt safe and they were able to pick us up in exact time. We were only 10 in the group so the transportation van is comfortable. Food in the buffet wasnt that great tho but it’s okay it’s still decent :) We enjoyed the whole tour, Taxco is so beautiful and the drive going to the locations is so relaxing. I would definitely go back and book through get your guide :)
