We were incredibly disappointed we were with this tour operator. There is currently a gasoline crisis in Mexico and it would have been dangerous for us to travel, a two women, to the Monarch sanctuary as there is no gasoline available in many provinces and in Mexico City itself the wait can be hours. The sanctuary is hours outside of the city and there was no guarantee we could make it back without needing gas.

Both our driver and us tried to cancel with the company but they would not give any refunds. We agreed with the driver for him to take us on a much shorter trip to Teotihuacan (normally priced hundreds of dollars less than this trip) because we didn’t want to put him and us in a dangerous situation hours outside of Mexico City.

This was a very expensive trip and was to be the highlight of our trip to Mexico City. It makes me incredibly angry that the tour company would put it’s clients (us) and it’s drivers in a precarious position. I would not recommend booking ANY tours with this company and hope that they are removed from the trusted tour operator list.

Eduardo was a great host on our tour. We left the hotel at 8:30 and got to the butterfly park pretty early. When we got there it wasn’t crowded. When we were leaving it just started to get crowded. Maybe aak the tour if you could go even a little earlier to miss the crowd completely. Eduardo spoke very well in English and Spanish and it came in handy when we wanted to hire the horses for the tour. The horses were the right way to go for us. The short hike was challenging mostly due to the change in altitude. I would suggest bringing a professional camera if you have one and enjoy photography. It’s very hard to get those closeup shots with a cellphone camera. Also bring cash, there are no atms and they won’t take credit cards.

i can only recommend this tour.
We were picked at our hotel at the agreed time by our guide Christopher.
Who was completely fluent in English. Christopher is the best driver i have ever
driven with, and was also very informative, regardless of the questions we asked.
We visited the Piedra Herrada sanctuary the 21st of February & it was a very impressive sight.
thousands & thousands of Monarch either hanging in big clusters in the trees. or fluttering around, as they were beginning to "wake" up due to rising temperatures.
Do hire a horse (both ways) - it will be in hands of a local guide, they ask 250 pesos each way, but after the trip we gave 600. it's money VERY well spent. Remember you start 3000 meters altitude & climbing to 3500. you will have to walk the last part of the
strech (10 min) it's quite steep, so make sure your footwear can cope with this.
But again, a fantastic sight worth every penny.

The agency did not anticipate the crowd visiting the sanctuary. We waited more that 2 hours in the woods in a crowd
