Mexico: Private tour to Puebla & Cholula
from AUD $343.89
During this private 11h tour from Mexico City, you will get acquainted with the rich historical & cultural heritage of 2 cities. Cholula, the oldest town in the Americas inhabited without interruption since its origins, is famous for its world’s largest pyramid topped by a beautiful baroque church. Puebla, in its turn, retains a fantastically well-preserved UNESCO-listed historic center, a stunning cathedral & delicious cuisine.
The time of the tour is spent purely on sightseeing: no visits to souvenir shops/restaurants (unless you ask).
An ideal choice for small groups: the price of the tour is fixed & varies just slightly depending on the size of the group.
We are flexible: departure time & location, program & route can be adjusted to your interests while the duration of the tour can be always extended for an extra fee.
NOTE: * the price of the tour/person depends on the number of participants in the booking.

This trip was an amazing adventure to Cholula the town, the Pyramid, and Puebla. We had an amazing guide who took us to all three and explained all facets of the cities and the Pyramid. I would highly suggest going on this tour as it was a delight and we saw so much in one day. Great time and very informative.
