Without our guide, it wouldn’t be so wonderful. Our kids really liked Alebrijes. My fav part was a black poterry.
It was a very cultural day! The activities were authentic. We loved to meet the locals and to see their work. Extra tip- if you book this tour, don’t buy the gifts anywhere else. The guide helped us to get better prices.
