“Impressive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

It's a very, very, very BIG tree...but I would have enjoyed it more in the middle of a forest not in a tourist attraction area...Wish it wasn't included in every single tour of the area...

“You won't believe the size!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

The tree is every bit as impressive and the descriptions claim. You won't believe how big it is, and it's in a wonderful plaza setting. Very easy to get to by bus.

“A tree to worship”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

Respect nature and pay homage to Tulle tree. This is enroute to several vllages and worth a stop. It is majestic in width and breath taking. I alwayt stop and have seen it a hundred times. Each time I am awed by the tulle tree

“World's biggest tree”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

The famous tree is truly enormous (its trunk is 14m in diameter and still growing) and it's set in a beautiful, relatively new garden. Before you head back to town, step into the market between the tree and the main road for delicious fresh fruit juice.

“Huge tree”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

Gigantic tree next to a tiny church which looks like it was made of candy. Nice stop on you way to Mitla or to San Cristobal!
