Almost didn't even do I tour here but glad I did. And pleased it wasn't cancelled since there were only two of us. Took us up top the cliff for view down; over to the high-end resort area just to see fancy hotels; then into the small old-town square where we went to the same shops the rest of cruise passengers were it. We were shown how the rugs were woven, dyed, etc. No real pressure to buy however. Then to mescal, mole, coffee shop for tasting. We still didn't buy anything. We are not shoppers. But it was all interesting to see. I'm sure we were a disappointment to the driver and shop owners. But we saw more of the area than if we had just gotten off the ship and wandered around on our own. So that was good.
