What To Expect

Your full-day tour of Cuernavaca begins with a morning pickup from your centrally located hotel in Mexico City. Board a private vehicle along with your guide and your group of up to 13 people and head straight to Cuernavaca, or the “city of eternal spring.”

Tour the city’s highlights, including the Borda Garden and the Palacio de Cortes — one of the oldest colonial civil construction in the Americas — and enjoy free time for lunch (own expense).

Then, continue to the UNESCO-listed archaeological site of Xochicalco, one of the largest archaeological sites in Mexico. Learn about the site and the people who once lived there as you walk through with your guide, visiting the Temple of the Feathered Serpent, the Temple of the Stelae, and more.

Tour guide was not knowledgeable
Diego_G, Apr 2023
Two guides came but only the driver brought any value to the experience. Our tour guide was not knowledgeable about the locations toured, speaking only to fill the silence, loudly. He pointed at years written on plaques and told us banal or entirely false information. His presence at xochicalco was worse than if he had allowed us to proceed at our own pace and picked us up later. He dropped us at a very mediocre restaurant for lunch, and then brought us to “see” two museums of which he had no knowledge, and then to “see” two squares about which he told us nothing, just stood there a moment before taking us back. Would have been one star but the driver did a good job and we felt safe throughout.

5 star experience with Edit&Christian
Peter_K, Jul 2022
The best experience with a guided tour ever! We had the honour to spend a day with Edit and Christian. Friendly and warmhearted, kind people with the urge to help you. They confirmed our tour once again by email a day before. They were on pick up point on time with a clean minivan with prepared water and hats. Christian is a good driver. He could navigate the van smoothly in the horror of Mexican traffic. Edit has an knowledge of history and traditions. She gave as as many information as we needed and she tried to answer all of our questions with endless patience. We had a fantastic day and got maximum service. I recommend this tour for everyone!
Patrimonio de la humanidad. Majestuoso, imperdible.
