Puebla and Cholula Tour

Join us on a full day tour to the two beautiful and important historical sites of Cholula and Puebla, just about two hours from Mexico City.

Enrich your experience with a heritage interpreter guide who will get you closer to the history and understanding of these places.

This tour will cross the highway among the mountains at the east of the city with breathtaking views and beautiful scenery of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl volcanoes, which can also be seen from Cholula.

Then we’ll take you to see the impressive church of Santa María de Tonantzintla, an impressive, indigenous-Baroque building, which stands out for its interiors decorated in gold leaf, as well as for the wealth of its elements.

After visiting Tonantzintla you’ll head to the city of Puebla, located just 15 minutes driving from Cholula. Puebla is popularly known as the “City of Angels”; there you can enjoy a delicious lunch (non included). The gastronomic variety is rich in Puebla; you can choose from a simple and traditional “semita”, or the exquisite and laborious “mole poblano.”

Then you’ll have a walking tour through the beautiful historic center of this city, where you can see buildings from the sixteenth to the eighteenth century, and visit Plaza de Armas, the Cathedral and the Church of Santo Domingo. Other point that you can enjoy is the crafts market where you can find beautiful works in the traditional Talavera, or delicious sweets such as sweet potatoes, prepared in different flavors.
