Wonderful and amazing!

What an awesome experience! We really enjoyed our tour to the Grutas de Tolantongo. We were picked up right on time, and our driver and guide were very nice. The van was spacious, and they made stops for us on the drive as needed (snack, bathroom). When we got there, they made sure we were all set up with lockers and knew where to go before letting us loose. Tolantongo itself was amazing and so worth the 3.5-ish hour trek each way. The pools and river are great but the caves are the real treat so do make sure you take the 15-20 minute hike up there from the river area to see and enjoy that part. We would definitely recommend using this tour to go to Tolantongo, you won't regret it!!
Great tour, 4 hour bus...

We had a tour last Monday and it was such a wonderful, relaxing, truly awe inspiring trip. We were a little late getting picked up and actually leaving Mexico City (thanks Monday morning rush hour), but still made it to the hot springs in ~3-3.5 hours.

Our group was very small, only 4 people so we were packed into a normal car, not a van or tour bus which did lead to some tight backs at the end of the day.

Once we were at the hot springs, it made the whole drive worth it! The cave, the river, the little pools, our group kept marveling at the natural beauty of the area.

Our guide Davíd spoke some English, and luckily my friend spoke Spanish so she worked as interpreter for all of us. Davíd took pictures for everyone while we were in the water and even saved my phone from falling in the river! He watched our things for us and would check in if anyone wanted to stop for food or the bathroom.

Absolutely recommend, go during the week if you can for way less crowds. Definitely invest in water shoes and a water proof phone case.
Tolantongo was on my bucket list. I m glad I had a chance to visit it. It was better than what I expected.

The waterfall and cave and river and pools are out of this world. I wish I could stay there forever. Defiantly worth the long drive.
Breathtaking views, worth the long journey

Really enjoyed the Tolantongo caves, river and thermal pools.It was a bit busy and lots of construction work going around, but the views were breathtaking, really unique site in the mountains. It was a really long journey, about 5 hours each way from the centre of mexico city so be prepared for that, but the car was comfortable and we were only 8 people in the group. Our driver Ricardo was really nice, didn't speak much english but he stopped for us to get snacks and food whenever we needed to and looked after our things when we were in the caves.
