Everywhere you go in Mexico City the people are very warm and friendly. Also, to warm you up for the sale they offer beer, tequila and of course tacos. They are very funny and have wonderful hearts. They are very giving. We often saw our guide, buying little things from the needy on the street.
Zocalo is the Venice Beach of Mexico. Lots of acts and shows going on for you to see. Plenty of street vendors for you to buy things from. Lots and lots of folks mingling around the very large square.
Mexico City was built on and now over a lake. The Aztecs saw a sign of the Eagle eating the Snake and built their temples and city around 1315 AD. Then in 1521 AD Hernan Cortez and Spain conquered Mexico City and tore down the Pyramids and built Roman Catholic Churches. Any who did not join died.
Lots of folks in Mexico City, around 12 million in the city center and around 22 million in the surrounding area. With any of these tours be patient and don't expect to get anywhere very fast. Life and pace is always moving but not as efficiently as you might want it.
