Beware. Not worth it.
Abner_R, Dec 2022
Taxco is a lovely place. However this tour will NOT allow you to see how magical it is. This is one of those tours where they take you to shops to try to sell you merchandise and the tour guides receive commission. The only emblematic spot your visit in Taxco is zocalo. If you want to truly experience Taxco DO NOT take this tour.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Dear Abner, We appreciate the time you took to write a review. We always value so much the coments of our travelers. Shopping is always a very sensitive issue. Some people value that we bring them to some shops during their tour and someother as yourself doesn't. The fact is, the majority of the travelers appreciate time to shop and because of that, we give our customers the enough time to do it... Specially in this tour since the silver is highly appreciated and is one of the reasons the customers take this tour. The guides do not receive any commisions as it is prohibited in our company, although I know very well that this is a common practice in the tour industry...worldwide. We hope that you enjoy the rest of your holidays in Mexico and we wish you a very nice and safe flight home. Warm Regards, Kim Alva Managing Director Interliv Travel Mexico

Sofia_C, Dec 2022
Taxco is a beautiful and magical place, surely will go back. I acquire some silver jewelry, had a delightful lunch with the tour group.
Beautiful city and great...
Arturo_G, Oct 2022
Beautiful city and great food. The pick up point was easy to find with the instructions given. I would recommend this tour to someone else.
Very nice option to see two towns outside of CdMX.
Zackie_D, Jan 2022
I was happy to find this tour was offered! As a solo traveler it can be difficult to find tours with "minimum persons needed". I checked two local hotel concierge desks in CDMX and they were of no help. Thankfully Viator had something. The tour picked up at Cineopolis at 0900 and then I met up with other people and we left to see Cuernavaca. The time in that city was a bit too short- maybe 45 minutes. Id prefer to have taken photos, see more tourist things like the Cuernavaca sign and trying the food versus spending so much time at the churches. The churches are interesting, but very boring. We did a brief stop to have some tacos de canastas, but on the drive away there was so much more to see in Cuernavaca. We went onward to Taxco- pronounced Tas-co. They sell bundles of roses on the way toward the town but we didn't stop- sadly. Taxco was fine, but we spent a bit too much time there and although it was beautiful Cuernavaca seemed to have more going on. Taxco just seemed like a town of people selling trinkets, silver and then there's a big church on the hill. We stopped for a 45 min lunch here (may or may not be included) opt out of lunch if you want time to see the city + about an 1-2 hour of touring. We left Taxco and returned to CdMx around 1930. Overall a very fun day trip. Id recommend it. I hope the tour operators adjust it a bit to allow more shopping, food and less church history.
nice trip to Taxco
alex, Dec 2021
this was a good tour , our tour guide did a good job explaining all about Cuernavaca & Taxco. sorry I forgot his name. the only reason why I give 4 start is because the food terrible I mean really bad.
I would recommend it

Umberto was amazing! Very knowledgeable and funny as well. He made the trip worth it. I also love that they pick up and drop off from your hotels.
Definitely course this tour
Arturo_P, Jun 2021
Amazing tour and the best I've ever seen. Taxco was more beautiful than I could have imagined. Frank was the best guide and Pablo was the best driver you could ever get and made it very special for us. Thanks!
Response from Host, Jun 2021
Dear Arturo, We are very much delighted for your comments and make sure we will inform Pablo and Frank about it. All of our clients are special and we consider them part of our big travel family, but you will take a special place in our heart. Thank you so much for being such a great traveler and we hope to see you soon in Mexico. Warm Regards, Kim Alva Interliv Travel Mexico
Un paseo maravilloso, difícil de olvidar!
MelvinFabian_C, May 2023
Un tour perfecto, donde conocimos el Pueblo Mágico de Taxco, con sus callecillas y mercados, su magnífica catedral , la mina y compartimos con su maravillosa gente. Cuernavaca con un encanto propio que también se disfruta. Definitivamente la guía de Aarón y sus conocimientos fueron el complemento perfecto para este gran día. Un tour de 10!!
Response from Host, May 2023

Transmitieremos sus amables felicitaciones a la guía que tuvo ese día; sin duda es una de nuestros mejores elementos. Feliz viaje de regreso y esperamos verlos pronto de regreso en México para otra gran experiencia! Saludos Cordiales, Kim Alva Managing Director Interliv Travel Mexico
Cuernava decepción y Taxco encantadora
Jorge_A, Jan 2023
El conductor guía llegó con media hora de retraso y su disculpa no fue correcta. El circuito es más el recorrido por la carretera que el tiempo real en ambos sitios. El guía explicó bastante sobre los lugares y respondió todas las preguntas sobre la vida cotidiana en México. En Taxco hubo que descender a pie desde la plaza de la catedral hasta el estacionamiento; un recorrido muy extenso. Contrataría nuevamente; pero solo porque es difícil hacerlo por mis medios.
Casi perfecto
Gildy, May 2021
El tour es una maravilla, el guía excelente, lo único q no me gustó es q el conductor se la pasó comiendo pepitas y me daba temor se distrajera al buscar la pepita y luego buscar el vasito en q depositaba las cáscaras
Response from Host, May 2021
Estimada cliente, Nos complace mucho escuchar que disfrutó del tour y que calificó a nuestro guía de excelente. Sus comentarios significan mucho para nosotros. Agradezco también mucho el que haya mencionado el hecho de que el conductor viniera comiendo en el camino. Es algo que no está permitido en nuestros estándares de seguridad y calidad y puede estar segura de que no volverá a sucederle a futuros viajeros. Espero se haya llevado una grata imagen de México, que es nuestro objetivo principal y esperamos verla de nuevo. Saludos Cordiales, Kim Alva Managing Director
