We will drive to the World Heritage City of Puebla, located 130km southeast of Mexico City. On the way we will make a brief stop in a lavander field surrounded by a forest of pine trees. We will continue to Cholula, where we will visit the Great Pyramid: Its remains measuring 450m along each side of the base and 65m high, making it larger in volume than Egypt's pyramid of Cheops. We will visit Tonantzintla and its exuberant church: Under its dome, the surface is covered with colourful stucco saints, devils, flowers, fruits, birds, making it a great example of indigenous artisanship applied to Christian themes. We will arrive to Puebla in time for lunch: Mexico's national dish, the 'Mole Poblano', originated here! We will explore the colonial center, lined with churches and colonial mansions, many adorned with the beautiful hand-painted Talavera tiles for which Puebla is famous.
We will begin our tour in Cholula. We will visit the amazing church of Tonantzintla and will continue to Puebla City.

Karina was awesome. With her bubbly personality and encyclopedia like knowledge of Mexico, she was so much fun to be around and great to learn from. She customized the experience for our specific needs (even taking us "off schedule" to a lavender factory on the way to Puebla). She had a designated driver so she could focus her attention on us. If you're looking for someone to have a fun time with while learning interesting things about Mexican history and culture, you MUST book a tour with Karina!
