This was an enjoyable trip, filled with excitement and the great food of Puebla. Not enough time was given at the Cholula temple. Wish we had a chance to explore the pyramids which the big church was built upon. I feel like we missed out on ancient history here. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable on pre-Columbian history. The driver should have used a seat belt while driving on the highways... a bit unsafe driving at top speed.

The tour to Cholula and Puebla was great! However I wish we would have had more time for shopping in Cholula - we decided to climb the pyramid, and did not have any extra time. The tours were nice, but I feel like we wasted a lot of time waiting for the other guests and tourists to come back at the requested time.

Our guide was super knowledgeable and funny. The stops were interesting. You just have to be a bit more lucky with the weather so that the volcano comes into its own (preferably without clouds :p). But no one can control the weather. All in all it was a recommendable tour.
