EXTREMELY EXCELLENT. GREAT for real history buffs. Rafael, our English speaking guide, and Guillermo, our driver, truly had a wealth of knowledge. Rafael communicated the history with very good English. Guillermo, who spoke some English, was also an Anthropologist, who was able to supplement Rafael's information. This gave my husband and I a wonderful lesson on an area about which we knew almost nothing. We were driven in an air conditioned car - just the two of us. There is a good bit of walking, often on cobblestones, so wear appropriate shoes, that can withstand a bit of mud if it has been raining.

Excellent tour of the highlights of Veracruz and vicinity. Because of my spanish I was able to understand much more than my wife. The van driver was extremely knowledgeable but had very limited english. The translator had limited knowledge and limited translational skills.
