Amazing Tour
It was a very good experience for me.
The tour was well organised and the guide (Migul) was so professional with lots of information to share.

The walks of the tunnels of the pyramid was so amazing, and the choice of restaurant for the dinner was superb.

Highly recommended

English speakers put in a spanish speaking tour
Jan 2020 • Friends
This is my first ever review here and it’s because I’ve never signed up for a tour in English and places in a spanish speaking tour group. My sister and I signed up for this tour which is ALL day. We were excited but first our pick up was delayed by 20 minutes because the driver wasn’t given the address to the hotel and I guess there are 2 hotels with similar names. Then, we find out that we’re on a guided tour with 10 other people, ALL native spanish speakers. And we had clearly signed up for an English tour. The guide was nice and this give us short summaries of what he told the others in spanish but it took away from the experience. We were only in Mexico City for 3 days. We would’ve never signed up for a tour in a foreign language. I’ve never had this happen to me. I’m an avid and experienced travel. Always do my research beforehand. They misled us by saying the tour would be in English but putting us on a spanish speaking tour.

Thank you very much for your comments, they are very important to us. Let us tell you that we were on time in your Zocalo Central hotel 08:15 hrs., we ask for you at the lobby and your room without success, we have the hotel seal as an evidence in case you would like to see it, however, some minutes later, we send another person that was near by to ask for you again. Miss your tour was a shared one and this is the way we operates it English and Spanish. Pablo is a very Good English guide, that gave the same explanation in both languages. We regret you had a bad experience with our tour. Please receive our best regards.

Disappointing office staff at mexitours.
Gabriella the tour guide and Armando the driver did an excellent job. None of the Mexitour staff or representatives were at the meeting point at specified time. Called the office and no one could give me any information of what was going on. It was more than half an hour past the meeting time and the office could not provide any information. Also, none of the mexitour representatives were at meeting point at specified time. Very disappointing. Be very careful in booking with this company.

Thank you very much for your comments, we are glad you had an excellent experience with your Puebla tour, we will extend your comments to Gabriella and Armando. It is important to clear up the time of the meeting point, it is at 08:45 hrs., the tours departure at 09:00 o´clock, unfortunately sometimes you are cited by the on line travel agency much more earlier, so no one is in the meeting point at that hour. We don´t understand why no one give you information in the office since we are there from 07:00 hrs., to attend the telephone calls and the tours operation, besides we have the 24 hours telephone for the same purpose. We appreciate your time and hope you visit us again. Please receive our best regards.

Not recommended. Uncomfortable and unsafe.
Nov 2019
First I should be clear that I thought very highly of our guide Humberto. He was warm, engaging, witty and very well informed. If the rest of the tour offering was of the same quality as the guide this would be a five start review. My problems with this tour really relate comfort and safety. This tour ran from 8:30 in the morning until about 7:30 in the evening and covers about 170 miles. Think about this when you consider the following. The seats were cramped and very uncomfortable. More than that they were unsafe because the headrests had been removed and this is more than merely a comfort issue. Headrests are essential safety equipment intended to present serious cervical injury in the event of a collision. So to sum it up this tour operator very obviously does not care about your safety or comfort. And if they are so cavalier with something so obvious it makes me wonder what else might have been wrong that wasn't. I intend to write Tripadvisor to suggest discontinuing representing this tour operator. BEWARE

Thank you very much for your comments, they are very helpful to us. We would like to tell you the vehicles are assigned according to the number of passengers we have in each tour. The headrests were removed, because they didn´t allow our tourist have a good visibility of the panoramic views, we will evaluate and put special attention about what you tell us. Of course your security it’s very important to us, primordial, our units are permanently under review by our maintenance department, to prevent any inconvenience with them. Thank you for your comments to Humberto, we will extend them to him, we hope you changed your mind and give us another opportunity. Please receive our best regards.

Great Choice
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 well informed! She did a great job of translating as needed and allowing a great balance and time for all activities.

Wonderful tour!
Sep 2019 • Solo
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 strongly encourage everyone to try the crickets!

Puebla is beautiful the architecture is incredible. We had lunch there. Must try the mole there.

Not bad, needs little improvement.
Jun 2019 • Couples
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 Puebla and not at the restaurant were an hr was spend trying to get there and food was cold. Give people the chance to eat where they want. Had no problem with the guide or driver, they were awesome. Not been able to visit the Church at the top and the horrible food makes it 3 stars.

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.
