Our guide Xavier, thank you :)
Maybe too much time driving, less time at objects, but that's the trip.

Had a great time seeing the Cholula ruins and the Puebla city walk. Jaime was a good guide and he drove us safely.

A disappointing day. Drive to Cholula was fine with a pit stop for restroom and refreshments. However when we got to the archeological site our guide did not through the tunnel with us so we got no explanation of anything like the group in front of us did. Once we met guide on other side he spent 90% of his time explaining features in Spanish and expected the English speaking clients to stand and wait for a very brief explanation leaving us little time for pictures or to read the placards that gave a more thorough explanation. Spanish group got additional time to climb up hill to see church on top of pyramid where as English speaking group only had time to run up and back to make it down by departure time.
From here we went to Puebla which seems to be a charming city. The church we went to was beautiful but little explanation in English. Lunch was quite good but from here we went to the most disappointing craft market I have ever experienced, almost everything their was junk, vendors were even rude!
3 hour ride back to city without a bathroom stop.
I would not reccomend using Mexitours, especially if it is a bilingual tour.

A very full day that started at 08:15 and went well after 20:00. The van was comfortable and meeting new people (both English and Spanish speaking) was very pleasant. A beautiful drive through the pine-forested mountains with views of Iztaccíhuatl. It was MUCH appreciated that plenty of opportunities for bathroom and water breaks were provided.

Cholula is a delightful town in and of itself, however, the "pyramid" and the Church of Our Lady of Remedies on top were great. Please be advised that you will be disappointed not to find much of an actual stonework pyramid. The original structure is still there but has been buried by centuries of dirt, but you will realize that the structure underneath is massive. The trip to the top (where the Church is) can be gruelling. The path is very long and steep but it is a good surface and the views from the top should NOT be missed.

Where to start with Puebla. As much as you will see on the tour, it will only lead you to realize that you could spend days in this city. Several beautiful and historic churches, wonderful paseos and shopping areas, a vibrant central plaza, great food and wonderful people.

We headed back home at 5 PM totally exhausted but well satisfied.

The tour company will pick you up and return to your hotel, but it might be easier to Uber to the central departure point as you may be the last one delivered back after the trip. That may add as much as an hour or more to you day and you will be tired.

My tour guide Pablo was great. Very informative. Loved the tour. Puebla and Cholula were great cities.
Only thing I would add would be to give the tour guide a microphone while we were walking about Puebla so we could hear him better. I had to stay close to him so I could hear him.

The church in Cholula was neat to see, but the highlight of the trip was historic Puebla. Although it was technically a guided tour, our guide allowed us the option once we arrived in Puebla to either have lunch with him at the prearranged lunch location and have a guided tour of the city's historic center, or to venture on our own and meet up with the group at a predetermined time. I chose the second option and had a blast wandering through the zocalo and surrounding area on my own. Highly recommend!

This was an almost 12.5 hour day trip. So be prepared for a long day. Both locations were interesting and had historic sites to visit. The pyramid at Cholula is really not visible other than small sections here and there. The church at the top of the hill under which the pyramid resides was nice to see. Puebla too was interesting although nothing spectacular.

Lunch was included with this trip and was horrible - quite possibly the worst ever at a Mexican restaurant anywhere in the world. We are vegetarians and usually have no problem anywhere. At this Mexican restaurant we had vegetable soup (which was good), pasta (Italian style?) and zucchini heaped with cheese - so anything but Mexican food. We had informed Mexitours when we booked that we were vegetarians, but our tour guide was unaware and seemed confused as to what to do when we told her we were vegetarians.

Our tour guide seemed knowledgeable by was very loud over the bus intercom and difficult to understand especially as she switched between Spanish and English

I really enjoyed this tour. Our tour director, Pablo nicknamed himself Paul McCartney and our drive Arthur was nicknamed as ArthurD2. It works, that's how I remember their names! Pablo had a great sense of humor and it shows how much he enjoys his job. He's welcoming, organized and explained things well. The lunch included was pretty good and I'm glad we decided to make this tour to experience Puebla and Cholula!

We thoroughly enjoyed our visits to Cholula and Puebla. Cities are rich in history and culture and many beautiful and ornate churches dot the areas. It was a full day of unique and memorable experiences. Our guide, Miguel, did an excellent job shepherding the group and masterfully highlighting details about the iconic landmarks and points of interests. He is knowledgeable, courteous, punctual, and possesses a sense of humor. Cholula is picturesque and peaceful. Its idyllic setting is captivating. The stroll through the open-air market towards the Great Pyramid and Church of Our Lady of the Remedies is a pleasant experience. There, you can taste fried grasshoppers if you’re up for it. The pyramid today resembles a hill. It succumbed to overgrowth many centuries ago. The conquering Spaniards constructed the church on the summit unaware the largest pyramid in the world lay under it. Interestingly the pathway to the church is through a 300-foot archeological tunnel hallowed out in the hill. The shrine itself is beautiful and offers a panoramic view of the surrounding area in all directions. It’s also located at the foot of a still-active volcano, which on a clear day offers a breathtaking view. Unfortunately, on the day of our visit the volcano was masked by cloudy skies. Puebla is equally appealing. Our first stop was lunch, which was excellent. Puebla is a World Heritage Site and birthplace of the Cinco de Mayo annual celebration when Mexican Forces defeated the French Army in the Battle of Puebla. French influence and architecture are prominent throughout the city center. It reminds us of New Orleans. Of all the churches we visited, the Church of Santo Domingo in Puebla is the most beautiful. Its intricate and ornate gold gilded art throughout the church is stunning. The memories we developed will last a lifetime. For these reasons, we found the time and cost of the tour well worth it.

We really enjoyed the visit to Cholula and the archeological tunnels we took to get there. Cholula is beautiful. There is not enough time to see everything but what we saw was Amazing. Then is was off to Puebla and lunch at a Hotel with an amazing Molé and Chile en Nogada. We then visited churches covered in gold and were able to walk around Puebla’d market to do a bit of shopping. We really enjoyed the experience and our guide, Eduardo, spoke perfect English. Eduardo was an amazing guide and we learned so much. We highly recommend this experience to those that enjoy the activities mentioned above.

We had a wonderful time. I thank the guide (Eduardo) for providing an explanation of everything in both Spanish and English. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining. We gained a great insight to the history of Mexico and its people. We saw many amazing features of the area and got some terrific photo’s. The lunch that was included couldn’t be better; it really added to the experience.
Overall it was excellent value for money and I’d recommend it to anyone.

Trip was amazing, Cholula is such a fascinating city, full of color, history and churches, yes, 365 churches to be exact (according to the guide) We got to see both volcanoes. Following Cholula, we then drove to Puebla. Where we had lunch (mole poblano). After lunch, our guide took us to a tile factory and then gave free time to wonder around the town.

Started a bit chaotic as these days always seem to, I paid for a hotel pickup but then told ..no you need to make your way (20 taxi ride) to the departure point. The day was good but why so many churches ? I lost count after the first 5. Also didn't get back until 9.45pm so a long day. Long coach travelling day. The good points saw some interesting parts of Mexico.

Honestly I wish we could get a partial refund for this tour. It was so terribly run for how expensive it was at 65USD. It started out poorly when viator states it would start at 9am and I had to call since the company never confirmed and they said 8:15am and it was 8:05am when I called!! They shoved 20 people into a small van and me being the tallest person but last picked up had to sit in the last row with no leg room and no air conditioning. The "tour" consisted of 15 min of Spanish explanations at each site and then maybe a 2 min brief explanation in English even though advertised as an English tour. Basically we learned very little and the tour part was useless. On top of that the tour guide was very unclear on timing and where we were going next. Then for lunch the tour guide didn't even tell us the lunch options and when the server came by we couldn't understand him and had to go find the tour guide to translate and even she couldnt do it very well. I had the pork which was more like jerky it was SO dry! So basically I only got to eat soup and the salad. And they served alcohol and nuts in the salad without asking anyone about allergies! Overall this tour was terrible. We were hot, miserable, and didn't learn anything. The sites of both cities are incredible but this company shouldn't advertise English tours.

We were pleased that our group of 10 could travel together (they used a bigger bus as we exceeded the 9 person max for the tour) to see another side of Mexico outside of Mexico City. The bus was comfortable and well navigated by our driver. Our guide, Umberto, was a combination of funny, informative and patient with our diverse group of Spanish and English speakers. Lunch was typical for tour groups (not too exciting) but the setting was very interesting--an old convent. The sights and sounds of Puebla and Cholula were worth the 4 hours on the bus. Overall, everyone was pleased with the trip.

It was a bit disappointing in that we really had no time to explore the wonderful cities of Cholula and Puebla. That saying the historical site of the ruins was interesting and the churches in Puebla were beautiful. Lunch was traditional mole polo that was delicious. I would recommend this tour.

We booked this trip as an English guided tour of Puebla and Cholula. to be picked up at our hotel by 8.45 am. We had the hotel call the tour operator around 9.00 am, . She was put on hold and eventually lost the connection. As she was trying again the company called back to inform me that the pick up driver was having traffic problems, some streets were closed etc etc. We were picked up soon after that and taken to the "gathering place" where we waited with 7 others until past 10 am for arrival of minibus, Finally left at 10.30 making the tour start 1 hour delayed. The "English" part of the tour consisted of the driver-guide explaining in Spanish to the other people with a short quick English summary between his Spanish commentaries. He was fine and did his best but the experience was very unsatisfactory. When we finally arrived at Cholula,time was an issue because of the late start and the same at Puebla since the time was not extended to allow for the late start.. If I were to do this again, I would try a totally different tour company,
