Great way to see Puebla

The van was packed for this tour, but they were still very accommodating and allowed us to add one more person at the very last minute. We spend about an hour in Cholula before heading to Puebla to have lunch where we also got an hour of free time to walk around. It was a nice quaint town. I wish we had more time to explore it, but we would probably have to come back and spend a couple days there.

Beautiful discovery of Puebla

The tour booked in English was conducted in Spanish. Very practical pick-up service but too late departure from Mexico, leaving little free time in Puebla. . The imposed restaurant lacks charm, highway buffet style, too bad for a city known for its gastronomy.

The stop at the silver shop in CDMX seemed unnecessary and delayed us in getting to Puebla. I could have done without this part of the ‘tour’. I felt rushed at the other stops.
