Carlos is well-spoken with extensive knowledge of the Cholula/Puebla area. We found the visit to the pyramid in Cholula fascinating. After seeing the pyramids of Teotihuacan from above ground, to be able to wander through the interior of ancient pyramids was quite an experience! We especially enjoyed our experience in Puebla. Although the Museo Amparo was closed this particular Saturday, Carlos more than made up for it with other sites and he indulged our desire to shop for Talavera pottery.
