What to Expect
After pickup from your Mexico City hotel by an English-speaking guide, you’ll head to the Cholula archaeological zone. There, you’ll have plenty of time to explore the massive Great Pyramid. Learn about the history of the pre-Hispanic structure and see the Church of Our Lady of the Remedies, which was constructed atop the pyramid after the conquest of Hernan Cortes.

In Puebla, you’ll 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.

Next, head to a former convent that’s now home the Museum of Religion Art, followed by a tour of workshops that make onyx and Talavera ceramics. At the end of the day, enjoy drop-off back at your hotel.

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...More

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...More

The tour guide (Angelica) and the driver (Antonio) were very friendly and informative. That puts it at a 4.5-5 stars. Then it’s downhill. Pickups were not on time, equipment not working properly (mic), no time to sightsee or shop. It was an expedited tour.

The drive was 2 hrs but much of it was scenic through the national park with the volcanoes Iztaccihuatl and smoking Popocatépetl always in sight. The payoff was experiencing Chulula's great pyramid. We marveled at the colonial Spanish brazenly planting trees on the structure and...More

Climbing the pyramid is totally optional. I didn't do it and still enjoyed the tour.
