Primarily a Taxco Tour
Matthew_R, Dec 2020
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.
Christopher_F, Dec 2020
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!!

Dear Christopher, We appreciate your review to help us provide a better service, we are sorry you had a bad experience, we will ask our drivers to drive more carefully next time, we will take into consideration your opinion about including the explanation of the Baron´s House on our tour. Regarding your meal, our drivers only suggest our local cuisine but if you don´t have the lunch included, you are free to go to any restaurant of your choice. We hope to see you again soon, and improve your experience in Mexico!

Joaquin R, Jun 2017
Cuernavaca, lamentablemente fue una pasada técnica. Prácticamente no vimos nada. Evitable, si ello resta tiempo en Taxco, que por el contrario, es increíble. Mucho por ver y recorrer caminando. Su particular emplazamiento, en las laderas de unos cerros, hacen que su calles entramadas sean un laberinto que invita a aventurarse, sumado al sinnúmero de tiendas ofreciendo artículos de plata, en las cuales uno puede regatear cual bazar oriental. Hay tiendas y artículos para todos los precios y gustos. En resumen Taxco, prioridad. Cuernavaca, evitable, de acuerdo a lo poco y nada que logramos apreciar,
