    A full and fabulous day!
    Mike_T
    , May 2022
    They pack a lot into a day......Interesting sights, experienced and interesting guide, and timing well laid out to let you get the most in on one day. Both stops give an insight to living in smaller 'authentic' Mexican towns, and while both are pretty, I much preferred Taxco. The vehicle is a 4 row Toyota Hi-Ace van, sturdy and suitable for this use, and not too crowded with up to 12 guests.......but also quite efficient......confused why the driver was so hesitant to use the AC, saying it would be too costly?.........More of a note to the Operator, as it did not ruin my fabulous day!

    Taxco city is beautiful, and the tour was great. Also I am satisfied by the guide Alexsandro. Many of guests are spanish speakers, but he explains to rest of us in English 50% (except in the mine where another guide speak spanish only). We did not go to Cuernavaca, but not an issue for me.

    Tour is well organized, you have enough of free time in Taxco, which is beutiful and cannot be missed. The bigger downside is that we paid for an English speaking guide and our guide was speaking Spanish 90% of the time, I lost interest after reminding him several times that he has several non-spanish speakers in the group...

    Taxco is great

    Taxco was so cute! Too much time wasted at the other town not necessary. waste 1hr plus at a church not necessary! The guide was not a guide literately no direction of where to eat at the first stop people were starving due to the early start yet he kept talking about a church. Totally ignored most were not interested. In Taxco only time we saw him was at the tourist trap at the silver store this tour could be a great one if you remove the tour guide and get another one and remove the first stop not needed. Also very rude with people basically scolded some. This tour needs another guide and it would be a good tour. I wish I knew his name can’t remember. The driver was also awful literately the most awful ride EVER no sense of people in the back feel everything. Now I know why this tour doesn’t have more stars is not b/c Taxco is not worth it is b/c the way it is done.

    Fabio was an amazing tour guide! Very knowledgeable. The tour was a smaller group and at a pretty relaxing pace so you can see the sights, stop for a drink and do shopping. Really enjoyed it! Highly recommend this one.

    I wish we had more time in both cities. 30 minutes in Cuernavaca was a joke. Granted, it was raining but more time would make a difference. Same thing with Taxco. A gorgeous city that's worth exploring for more than an hour and a half. Alexa, the tour guide was very nice though. On this tour you will spend a lot more time on the bus than the tour itself.

    Beautiful Taxco
    Toni_P
    , Aug 2021
    Taxco is an amazing city and I would recommend everyone to see it. We took a taxi to Christ statue, which gives you a beautiful view over the mountains. We stopped at a jeweler's place who explained why silver is important for the city. Good opportunity to buy jewellery, if you are interested. Stop in Cuernavaca was short, but the church gives you a story about early colonization period.

    Great tour, enjoyed the trip except for the fact that the church at Taxco was not open. The tour company told us that the church was closed due to the Easter celebrations but the locals told us that the church has been closed for a while for renovations. The tour company was not honest.

    Not enough Cuernavaca, too much time in tourist traps
    Maryjane_B
    , Feb 2020
    Guide didn’t speak English very clearly and railroaded us to a tourist-trap restaurant with very bad but expensive food in Taxco and a silver shop where proprietor kept pressing us to drink different types of alcohol. There was too much time spent in silver workshop - very little time spent on silversmithing and then too much pressure to buy. Wanted to see more of Cuernavaca, which was only alloted 40 minutes out of of an 11-hour trip billed as “Cuernavaca and Taxco.” Very disappointing overall compared with our other Viator experiences.
