We did a cooking class with Carlos and his wife Leti in their home. Carlos is soooo knowledgeable, speaks excellent English, and is very professional in communicating with us via email and WhatsApp in advance of our trip to Puebla. 100% recommend! When we were planning our trip we were nervous about whether or not many tour guides like Carlos were open - but he is and he responded to all of our emails very quickly, so I recommend reaching out to him if you are thinking of traveling to Puebla or the surrounding region!

We did a day trip to Cholula with Carlos. He knows everything and everyone and was very patient with our long detour to Talavera de la Reyna. He also does airport runs which is a much better alternative to the bus.

My mother and I visited Puebla in April 2021. Although the City was partially under lockdown due to Covid, Carlos was able to put together a wonderful tour for us. The moment I reached out to Carlos, a week or so before our trip, he was very pleasant and professional. He immediately understood our expectations. Carlos picked us up at our hotel as agreed and took us to see some of Puebla’s incredible treasures. He punctuated our tour with historical facts, personal experiences and trivia which made our time with Carlos very fulfilling. We even stopped for some delicious local sweets! Carlos loves his city and takes great pride in sharing all its attributes with visitors. I highly recommend Carlos’ services to anyone looking for a customized experience in Puebla. What a gem!

We had a wonderful two days with Carlos. We spent a day in a cooking class with Carlos Rivero Tours and another day on a private tour with him of Puebla and Cholula. He is very knowledgeable about the history and culture of the area and he is a very thoughtful and kind person. So much of our great experience in, and enthusiasm for Puebla, are due to Carlos’ warm introduction and his embrace of the area — and his joy in sharing his home town with us. Yes, for us English speakers (and Americans), he is completely fluent. Book with him. Terrific time! Enjoy!!

I found Carlos Riviera on the internet and was lucky with the results. His English is perfect. He helped plan our time in Puebla and Cholula for two days and provided transportation to and from Mexico City. His rates are very fair. We went on a barrio tour by car in Puebla, a walking tour of the central city and a car trip out of the center to see the exquisite Baroque Museum designed by Japanese architect Toyo Ito. In Cholula we went to the spectacular pyramid but the important churches were closed so he quickly suggested a talavera factory and showroom with beautiful tiles for purchase. Carlos is interesting, knowledgeable, responsive and has a good sense of humor. Highly recommended.
