Taxco is just an amazing little town full of jewelry, history and kind people. We really enjoyed our tour there, the ride was excellent, the guide was always pending on whatever you might need… highly recommended!
Beautiful sites, rich in history!

I had an excellent time, I loved the sites we were taken to, and the guide was great, very informative. I had a really awesome time, and the pictures absolutely amazing. Wish we could spend more time in Cuernavaca, but the main attraction to this tour is Taxco, and you will not be disappointed.
They only bad thing I have about this tour is be very very very careful with your belongings, do not leave anything behind, because you will not get it back. I called the phone number provided, right after I got off the bus and noticed I had left a bag of souvenirs, they informed me that they still hadn't reached their second stop to call them back in 10 minutes, so I did, and they were not able to find anything, like it disappeared, disappointed at the level of dishonesty of the tour guides/company, but that's life I suppose! But the tour itself was nice, like I said just be very careful and make sure you don't leave anything behind or you will not get anything back.

Primarily a Taxco Tour

This tour is advertised as a “Cuernavaca and Taxco” tour but was really a Taxco tour plus a 45 minute stopover in Cuernavaca. I booked because I wanted to see murals and the palace/fort in Cuernavaca, but the palace was closed. We saw only the church. I suggested going to a nearby waterfall (Cascada de Anton) but the guide said we did not have enough time.

Luckily, Taxco was a much better experience. We had lots of time to explore Taxco and the restaurant chosen by the tour had a spectacular view. My tour guide, Ursula, was great. (December 2020)
Crazy drive and a horrible meal.

The tour guide was entertaining and very knowledgeable we liked her very much. The driver was like most drivers in Mexico , he drove a bit too fast and too close to the other cars we had a few near misses on the drive too and from our location.
The stop in Cuernavaca was too quick. The tour guide explained that a local silver baron built a huge house directly in front of the cathedral that we visited and that the house was now a museum. It was a very interesting bit of history that was important to the two cities we were visiting but yet we had no time to visit. I’d argue that the house would of been a better stop than the cathedral.
On the drive to Tacxo our driver was shook down for money at a closed toll station. The driver was told to give money or we would not be allowed to pass all this was done in eyesight of a police officer! Unbelievable, we were told that this was normal.
While in Tacxo we were led into a restaurant for lunch. I had not paid for lunch so I assumed I would be able to go to a restaurant of my choice, I was wrong. At the restaurant we were given a menu with only two meal choices. I didn’t think much of eat until the table next to me received the regular menu with numerous choices. The meal was horrible! Literally the worst meal I’ve had in Mexico and I’ve lived here for three months!!
