About the tour

Puebla is a city conceived in a dream whose colonial buildings tell many stories . At some point in history the city was about to become the capital of Mexico and was the place where the war of revolution started, you can see this from with the marks on the buildings' facades The historic centre is a visual proof of all these events, your guide Ernie invites you to join him and listen to the stories that emanate from these buildings and to meet the protagonists of Mexican history

Please stop long enough for pics. Also when a person (s) ( not me) repeats a question; it is rude in English to "ready told you". Just trying to help.

I did this tour for the first time back in January and on this second trip, I see lots of improvements! Great job! Lots of interesting architectural features, very colourful and a must for anyone who loves art. I was happy to see that the market was open this time. Ernie, don't worry about negative reviews, you can't please everyone, those with constructive criticism use it as motivation to continue improving. I already see a huge difference from the first tour you hosted and look forward to more tours of Puebla and Mexico City.
