Pase una tarde entretenida en Ciudad de México viendo auténtica lucha libre mexicana en directo con los fans de uno de los deportes favoritos de México. Observe como los oponentes enmascarados vestidos de superhéroes y villanos realizan sus maniobras acrobáticas de altos vuelos en el ring. La visita incluye un chupito de tequila y una máscara de lucha mexicana para llevarse a casa como recuerdo.
This tour is exactly as it says- transport to and from the arena, a small bottle of tequila, and a mask.We arrived in Mexico City on the afternoon of the tour so were unfamiliar with the city and had heard that the area around the arena was unsafe, so we chose to do this tour so we would have a guaranteed lift there and back.Unfortunately when I confirmed our pick up time, we were told that our pick up/drop off location was a central location in Mexico City, and not from our hotel (we stayed in Colonia Roma). We had to make our own way to the meeting point (very close to the arena- we pretty much got an uber the whole way to the arena). There was so much traffic to get to the meeting point, so we called the emergency number to let them know we'd be running late. The lady on the phone was very helpful, but told us that the driver was also stuck in traffic and would be late. We struggled to find the meeting spot, as the address didn't come up in Google maps and ended up just being in front of a random building. The driver turned up 1 hour after the agreed meeting time (so if we were on time we would have just been standing on the street for an hour- exactly what we were trying to avoid). We got our masks and cheap bottle of tequila and headed to the arena. Afterward, we paid the driver extra to take us all the way home, instead of dropping us back to the meeting point.Luche Libre is a great show and we had lots of fun- I would definitely recommend going to a show. But I think it is probably just as easy to organise your transport yourself. Ubers are easy to organise if you have internet and the masks are for sale everywhere. The tequila was not great. I think you can buy tickets at the box office (right next to the entry), or online beforehand.
What a laugh!! Yes it's all show but it's great mixing in with the Mexicans - we had a fantastic couple of hours. It's worth searching the link for the more expensive tickets closer to the stage we had Ring 2. Note that you can't take in water or alcohol with you but you can of course buy inside. Don't miss it!
I booked this tour just for curiosity, but the event was actually more fun than I expected. Lots of laughs with other tourists and locals. Food, drinks, and plenty of noise. Transportations and other arrangements worked well, just as promised.
First of all, you need to take Mexican wrestling at face value. It is a bit repetitive. The price of the tickets was equivalent to 3USD. You are being charged 35USD for the tour. You can easily go to the BO and get your own tickets. You also get a ride, masks, and two small tequila bottles. No tour
Mexitours, the local provider did not provide an English-speaking driver. So we were picked up by the driver and off we went to the arena. Arriving at the arena, we were told no cameras were allowed inside. Thus had to leave my camera with the driver. By way of cellphone with an English-speaking lady, we were told we would be collected at the same spot were were dropped off at 7PM after Lucha Libre. We finish Lucha Libre it was as expected - no issues - would have been nice to have a bit of explanation beforehand at 7PM and wait at the spot indicated. This is not a nice part of Mexico City as told to us by another tourguide we have been using. At 7:10, started dialing the reservation number we had to call the day before and wait on hold for what seemed like 30 minutes to even confirm pickup. After about 10 tries I get the English-speaking lady who informs us the driver will be late. I ask for an ETA and could not get one. Tell her to have the driver drop off our camera at our hotel and we take Uber on our own back to our hotel. The driver and camera showed up over an hour later.
The ticket cost was 130MX / 7usd. The masks, maybe 5, the terrible tequila maybe 2.... Ride 1 way with no explanation. Return on our own via Uber. All for the price of 45usd each.... I'd say Viator and Mexitours ripped us off!!! Here's hoping some of the future tours I have booked with Viator are not this TERRIBLE!!!
Wow, it's a? Once in a lifetime experience! We had a blast and enjoyed this crazy, loud, athletic performance. The tour bus was an hour late picking us up, but they called frequently to update is on time. Nice tour guide and driver and met fun folks from other places. Loved the masks at the end which were part of the price of the tour.
This was my favorite experience in Mexico, went with a large group of friends, the guide ensured we were all together. Everyone was thrilled with the experience, I would do this every trip to Mexico City!
