This was so beautiful to watch. The seats were excellent and the Palacio de las Bellas Artes is beautiful. It was a great reason to dress up and have a nice dinner

Ballet was great. The price of the tickets were grossly overcharged. You would be better off buying tickets direct and taking a cab. There are plenty of seats available since this show has been running for decades

The Ballet was wonderful, thankyou to Victor for finding us at the airport as well as taking us to the ballet and looking after us. We were sad the ballet had been had been moved to the Museum but it was still a fantastic night.

Excellent event. The ballet very professional. We were the only 2 passengers and were treated very cordially by the driver of the van to the event and after.

Just stunning. It blew us away. A great way to appreciate the dance and music of Mexico. The driver was dead on time to pick us up and take us back to hotel.

The costumes, music and dancing were fantastic. My daughter and I were enraptured from the first minute to the last. I would highly recommend this as an addition to any trip to Mexico City!

Loved the event, but were not pleased that the tour company asked for money at the end of the evening.

The ballet was magnificent. The special Navidades en Mexico was on the esplanade of the Castillo de Chapultepec Chapultepec Castle and was an outdoor Christmas extravaganza of colorful costumes and rich Mexican history, culture and heritage. The transportation shuttles were a bit uncoordinated, but I was picked up at my hotel and dropped off afterwards, so it all worked out.

Interesting performance. For the price the seats were too high. Pick time was changed and we did not receive email update.

This show was a greta surprise. We were 3 adultos and one of us we did not expect to enjoy it but he also had a wonderful time. The show is colorful, beautiful and tell us the Mexican history.

The ballet was wonderful EXCEPT that we were told at the last minute that it would not be at Bayes Artes . It was outside at the castle at Chapultepec, which was fine but cold. No programs or information, no blankets..his would have been delightful if the weather had been a bit warmer or if we had been prepared for the elements. The program itself was lovely, and quite dramatic in the outdoors.
Viator driver was very nice, as was the guide.

The only thing i did nt like is that your website advertised the wrong time. it was scheduled in the evening and your website mentioned 9 ;00 am. I sent an email to the local tour operator if a viator person would meet us at our hotel lobby. I did not get any reply considering i sent the email on a friday and a saturday. i even had to call viator and the victor called the local agency. in short, i had to pay extra P 3,000 as the call took some time especially i called from a hotel room. I tried calling the number of the local tour operator and there was no answer . i dont know if it was becasue it was on a sunday.

I had emailed the company about getting picked up for the Ballet Folklorico at The Red Tree House where were stayed. She responded that the pick-up would be between 19:15 and 19:30 hours. I questioned the time as the information I had printed stated show time at 19:00 hours. She just said to be ready between 19:15 and 19:30 hours. Due to the immense traffic problems in Mexico City, the host at The Red Tree House decided with your designated driver that he would not make it by 19:30 hours so at 19:40 hours, the host, Victor literally walked us to the Metro and rode with us to our transfer station so that we could get to the Bellas Artes museum. We missed the first 15 minutes of the Ballet Folklorico by the time we arrived, met the dirver and exchanged our vouchers for tickets. That was pretty disappointing and ruined the full experience of the ballet. The traffic in Mexico City should be factored in for any hotel pick-up. I will certainly consider this in the future before I book with you folks. The Red Tree House did a much better job of getting us to our excursions.

Among all the tours I booked through Viator for my trip in Mexico City, this one has the poorest value. To be more specific, this tour is supposed to be called a ballet ticket plus a cab. The tour description says that a professional guide is included, so I was expecting that there would be a guide to help us learn some information about the history and culture of the show. The driver there was no guide of our tour didn't give us any information about the show or Mexico City. He barely talked to us, in fact. The performance itself was great. However, the ticket price does NOT match the cost of the tour, not at all. You can see the actual ticket price when you get your ticket. The show I watched was worth much less than what I paid. I booked the tour because I travelled alone. I thought it would be safer for me to pay more and join a tour for a show at night. Nevertheless, from what I got, I say the tour is not worth doing. You can easily book the tickets through various ways, and get a safe cab for transportation -- that way, you will save some time without waiting for the car to pick up/ drop off other people, and get a better deal.

Espantoso. Malísimo. No explicaron nada sobre el teatro ni la edificación. Nos recogieron y nos dejaron en la entrada del teatro sin más comentarios. Para eso se compra la boleta del ballet por separado y se toma un taxi. Muy mal tour, cero organización, el guía no aporta nada. El bus estaba sucio, en mal estado. Muy muy malo.
