I cannot more highly recommend avoiding these tours. They do not give you an accurate description of the tour before booking, and by the time you are crammed onto the bus like a sardine, it is too late. First, they insist on sticking nearly 60 people into a bus with just one guide for the entire time. This is simply far too large of a group to walk around together, and for what they charge it is criminal to not at least split into smaller groups upon arriving. Secondly, they do half the tour in English, and half in Spanish. Normally this wouldn't bother me so much, but based on the size of the group and the already slow pace, you are basically spending half of your short time in each location being spoken to in a language you can't understand. Again, none of this is mentioned before you pay them, and for what they charge, shouldn't be the case. The places that they take you to are total rackets, and at each one you get a 10-15 minute demonstration, and then 15-30 minutes were they expect you to wander around a gift shop and buy things that were made in China (not an exaggeration). They also "recommend" a restaurant for you to go eat at when you have your free time, but they basically just herd you into a place that serves bad food for way above market prices because you are a captive audience. You are far better off hopping on a train and going places yourself (the bus rides themselves take up 2/3 of your day, and they have the ability to change the schedule and not include things that you paid to see), or hooking up with a much smaller tour group where you actually get to see some authentic things with knowledgeable people. Don't go if you know what's good for you!
