What people are saying about State of Mexico

Javier from Mexitours is a great tour guide, fluent in English, a good driver and always ready to help. The tour was fun and informative, recommended for people who want to experience smaller, quainter towns than Mexico City, colonial architecture and the ruins of ancient civilizations.

The organisation of the trip was done very professionally, the guide was serious and friendly ! I had such a great experience during the tour I booked again another day trip with this company ! Totally recommend

El museo es pequeño pero tiene todo lo necesario en información, arte y elementos visuales. La atención es maravillosa y los productos a la venta deliciosos ¡Felicidades!

Can't complain for 35 dollars a person. a couple of tourist traps along the way, but it was definitely worth the trip.

Great tour guide! He was amazing, informative and passionate about his beautiful Country of Mexico.
