Hotel pickup and drop-off, plus included lunch, make for a hassle-free trip.

What to Expect
After pickup from your Mexico City hotel by an English-speaking guide, head to the Cholula archaeological zone. There, you have plenty of time to explore the massive Great Pyramid.

In Puebla, get an introduction to this historic city’s UNESCO-recognized colonial center with a visit to the ornate 16th-century Church of Santo Domingo. The church’s Chapel of Rosary baroque interior is considered a wonder of the art world.

Don’t miss a chance to check out Puebla and Cholula and definitely do so with Mexitours. They pick you right from your hotel and drop you back there as well. You travel by a nice bus with a bathroom on board and entertainment as well. Ask for Gabriella, she was awesome and

I was lucky enough to have just about 8 fellow tourist on this tour. The driver was also the guide. Since the group was so small we were able to ask questions. Miguel was a wonderful guide. He was funny informative and amicable. Cholula was very painteresque. I highly

We actually departed on time. The main problem we had was that we were not able to visit the Church at the top because there was no time. We finally ate at around 4:30 PM and yes, the Buffett was horrible. My wife and I would have rather been dropped off at the central park in

Thank you so much to take the time to share your comments to us, they are kindly appreciated. In fact, De los Remedios Church (at the top) is not included in the program of Cholula, just because of the time, it is up to the guide if he has enough time to visit it. The qualified restaurant El Colonial, we chose to take you to have lunch, because of it´s taste, unfortunately that day was impossibly to get there thanks to a meeting and the guide taking into consideration that it was already late decided to take you to another option, I am afraid that for the same reason, it was late, the food was cold. Our guide and driver will be grateful for your comments about them. Thank you to choose Mexitours to visit Mexico, we will be glad to have you here again. Best regards.

We passed the volcanoes of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl set in a stunning national park. I think I would rather have spent more time in Cholula rather than Puebla, which is just a big modern town. Yes there were some beautiful churches, but that was offset by having to spend

Dear: Thank you so much for taking the time to give us your comments about your experience in our Puebla and Cholula Tour. You are right, this tour includes a short visit to Cholula which is a picturesque town that combines the ancient culture and the modern architecture, and breathtaking views of the volcanoes. Puebla as Capital City is the Highlight attraction of this tour and gives you the chance to enjoy a typical lunch and also a walking visit of the main square where the handcrafts markets, the cathedral and the park are found. However, we are sure that you had a great time during this trip even when our guide on charge did the tour mostly in Spanish and not 50% in English (according to your perseption) because all other travelers gave us great comments about the tour. Once again, thank you so much for your time and for choosing MEXITOURS to visit Mexico, we hope to see you soon on a specialized tour about the volcanoes Best regards.
