The places are very worthwhile but the time to visit Puebla is very short. The bus is too big to go through some of the places, which makes it take longer than normal to access. The same guide does the explanations in Spanish and English, so you have to wait and at the stop in the morning you lose a lot of time, 15 minutes would be enough.

A tour that is 100% recommendable even in the sweltering heat. Ricardo was a very good driver who stayed in the background all the time. As with the Taxco tour, Miriam shone with her extensive knowledge. In a nutshell, there was a lot to see and learn in the two cities.

Este passeio é perfeito para quem passará mais de 3 dias na CDMX e quer absorver mais da história mexicana, além de quebrar a rotina da cidade grande. Puebla e Cholula ficam a 2h30min da CDMX , então a viagem de ônibus fica um pouco chatinha, nada que uma soneca não resolva (condições da via são excelentes). A Amigos Tour foi super pontual, nosso guia Emanuel nos contou toda a história das cidades, com muito entusiasmo e “sentimento”. Foi um ótimo guia. Pontos positivos: Puebla é linda, suas ruas coloridas; o mercado é mais em conta do q CDMX e os doces são deliciosos.. Cholula é história pura...és Pontos negativos: poderia sair mais cedo de CDMX, pegamos mt trânsito na ida e na volta. Podia ter colocado mais um guia, éramos um grupo de 35 pessoas com apenas um guia...
