Puebla and Cholula Day Trip from Mexico City
US$64,00
Overview
See the Great Pyramid of Cholula and Puebla’s UNESCO-listed historic center on one easy, all-inclusive tour from Mexico City. The largest pyramid on earth by volume, Cholula surpasses even the Egyptian Pyramids. In Puebla, visit historic churches, buildings adorned in hand-painted tiles, and a religious art museum, and get an introduction to the craft of Talavera tile-making. Hotel pickup and drop-off, plus included lunch, make for a hassle-free trip.
What to Expect

After pickup from your Mexico City hotel by an English-speaking guide, you’ll head to the Cholula archaeological zone. There, you’ll have plenty of time to explore the massive Great Pyramid. Learn about the history of the pre-Hispanic structure and see the Church of Our Lady of the Remedies, which was constructed atop the pyramid after the conquest of Hernan Cortes.

In Puebla, you’ll get an introduction to this historic city’s UNESCO-recognized colonial center with a visit to the ornate 16th-century Church of Santo Domingo. The church’s Chapel of Rosary baroque interior is considered a wonder of the art world.

Next, head to a former convent that’s now home the Museum of Religion Art, followed by a tour of workshops that make onyx and Talavera ceramics. At the end of the day, enjoy drop-off back at your hotel.

Nice day trip

Puebla is beautiful and Cholula is interesting. Humberto is an excellent guide but was right when he said that you really can't see enough of Puebla in one day.

Connecting tourist train between the two towns

I visited and stayed in both Cholula and Puebla and much preferred Puebla. Cholula was great for El Popo (the volcano - that happened to be smoking whilst we were there) and the pyramid but Puebla was a nicer town, more to see and do...More

Climbing the pyramid is totally optional. I didn't do it and still enjoyed the tour.
