We stopped at a number of places going to Copala. There were brick makers; we stopped at a tile maker; and, at a local bakery. It was very informative and interesting.

There are some substantial problems with the current tour. I do not recommend ANYONE take this tour. I have been on over 300 different Shore Excursions. I have been on this particular Tour three times in the past. The current description of this tour (Tour of Concordia and Comala) is at least EIGHT years out of date. It deserve a "Pans on Fire" for how little the description matches your actual tour experience! Before you leave Mazatlan, you are forced to stop at a Jewelry Store for 40 minutes. (This was NOT mentioned in the description). Really overpriced stuff that few people would actually want to buy. Next stop is to visit an adobe brick "factory". 20 minutes looking at rows of mud bricks drying in the sun. Next stop is at a "Furniture Factory". This is a road side GIFT SHOP selling badly made pottery too heavy for any cruise passeger to pack home. Next stop is an over long stop in Malpica - a village of ONE street where you visit what is called a "bakery" . This is actually a prviate home which has an adobe oven in a corner. Yes, they have racks of bun type things which are NOT samples. They are happy to sell you an ything you want to try. Across the street is a man who makes floor tiles out of concrete (a total yawn-fest) and anothe r over priced GIFT SHOP. This is descried as a TOUR of the colonial villages of Comala and Concordia. After all these stops at different BAD GIFT SHOPS... you have very little actual time in either of the Colonial Cities. The time in Comala is very brief - just enough time to walk from the tour bus parking area to the Church. A quick look see inside the Church, and then a march back to the tour bus. In Concordia there is NO TOUR. You get off the tour bus, you walk in sigle file around the corner to a restaurant. You eat lunch...then you are marched back to the bus...and you leave town. There were a lot of people on our tour bus who wanted to buy local trinkets. These were really BAD GIFT SHOPS not worth a tour bus stop. We wondered how much the Tour Company was getting paid to make these stops. Read Less
