Mexico City Sightseeing Tour

Mexico City, Mexico

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

We saw primarily two things in this tour: the Zocalo and the anthropological museum, both of which were interesting and had a lot to see. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Mexico City, but at times his explanations were so detailed that it was hard to digest. We were also taken to a nice store where we bought a few nice souvenirs. We wish the tour covered a few more things on the Paseo de la Performa (e.g., sculptures) and in other parts of the city.

Teotihuacan Pyramids and Shrine of Guadalupe

Mexico City, Mexico

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We enjoyed this 2000+ year-old pyramid tour very much in the company of an excellent and knowledgeable guide (Franco). The tour (6 people in a comfortable van) began with a trip to the Square of the Three Cultures where we saw the Aztec pyramids, the Spanish church, and the new Mexican buildings. We then visited the Shrine of Guadalupe and spent some time in both the old and new basilicas. Then we went for a 45-minute trip to the Teotihuacan pyramids (on the way we had lunch at a buffet place) where our guide explained the history of the Moon and the Sun pyramids, and then we were given a couple of hours of free time to hang around the archeological site and climb up the pyramids.

Washington DC Segway Tour

Washington D.C., District of Columbia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Touring DC on a Segway was one of the best things we did. Our tour guide Melissa was wonderful and very informative. The Segway took us to all the major spots in DC, including the Washington Monument, The White House, Capitol Building, Lincoln Memorial, etc. It takes hardly 5 minutes of training to get used to the Segway and then you never want to get off. We had taken the 10 am tour which lasted for about 3 hours. The tour also gives you enough time to take pictures, stroll around, and take short breaks if you are tired. One of the best parts of the tour was when we rode the Segway on the Pennsylvania Avenue towards the Capitol Building. It took us about 20 minutes, and on our way we saw the streets and most of the famous buildings on the Penn Avenue. In summary, if you have just a couple of days in DC, or even otherwise, if you just want to have a lot of fun in an unconventional way, Segway is your best choice!
