Great tour. Consider single language tour instead because other tourists speak over tour guide when tour guide is not speaking their language.
We were told to be ready at 8:30 and were not picked up until 9:30. 1/3 of the tour group spoke English and did not receive a full explanation from the guide because he claimed it was too much to do. We hired our own guide at the Anthropology museum and dropped out of the tour. Mexico City is very impressive and we appreciated being taken to several of the most historic spots, but for the price, Viator has other all day excursions for the same price so this one is not a value.
Driver spent a lot of time circling - seemed to be running errands. On a 6 hour tour, he didn't want to stop for lunch (we had 3 kids with us...) Only spent an hour in the Museum (although that hour was a good tour.)
Roberto our guide was very good and very entertaining. We all appreciated not having American's on our tour. Perfect to end at the Anthropological Museum.
I always like to take an overview tour of new cities we visit. This was one of best because of the amazing sites in Mexico City that I had not seen and not aware of. We had a small van and were able to make several significant stops along way.
Our tour was pretty good. We had a rocky start, running about 25 mins late and taking us to the gardens where there was not much to see, however the tour improved significantly as the day went on with a tour of the archeological museum and the cathedral. Our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly, and able to accommodate the whole group. We ended up having extra time at the end which made up for the late start.
This tour was interesting, though it could have been much better had we stayed in the downtown area the whole time. Instead, we wasted a good deal of time dealing with the traffic going to some godforsaken place to look at a horrible, crappy silver shop.
Although we were in the minority language group English, Spanish and English were 50/50 treated equally . Great guide. Perfect start to our Mexico City vacation.

The guide was excellent. Both the Shrine of Guadalupe and the archeology museum were well-worth seeing.
We were very impressed with our tour guide Marcos. He was very knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour and will take it again.
Very informative tour through Mexico City. As on Sundays the museum is for locals for free it was packed with people. What was not nice was the long commercial stop at a silver shop. Without I would rate the tour 4 stars.
We spent too much time in the bus with the guide showing things. We could have visited a few more places. Bus was an old van, but according to local standards, certainly OK. We did NOT visit the Templo Mayor for example. Did it on my own later.
The guide was a friendly older mexican but very skilled.
Most of this can be done on your own. What we saw as we were staying in the El Centro Historico was right outside our hotel. The Zocalo was with in walking distance for us. However, Jose our guide gave wonderful explanations and history which we would have missed out on.
For us we had a hotel near most of what we saw on this day. If your further away from the city center then this tour is worth doing. Our guide, Jose all 3 days was excellent.
