This was great but I realized actually that you can just buy tickets at the kiosk near Chapultepec Castle for like 40, or I imagine inside the venue itself, and take the subway right to Palacio das Bellas Artes. Or walk there. I ended up being the only one on the tour but the guy picked me up at a random hotel I picked, and ended up dropping me off at my house because I didn't want to walk home 30 min in the dark by myself. He was really nice. Way overpriced though considering how inexpensive the actual tickets are. The show was absolutely awesome though, 10/10. Go see it one way or another.

Excellent show. Non stop bright Mexican dancing and music. Wonderful costumes. Well worth the money and time. The building itself is a gorgeous and worth the visit on its own.

When booking this tour several months ago we were not informed that the Ballet would be presented in an outdoor venue. Outdoors in January! It had rained that day, so the stage and the seats were wet. The show began and the rain returned with wind and temperatures in the 40's. The show was stopped because dancers were slipping and falling on the stage and we were getting soaked and shivering in the cold. We were most dissatisfied with this.

The ballet is an amazing show, however this tour is a ripoff. The tour is expensive, but the seats we had were in the third floor of the theater. Therefore the show was barely visible from that height. Also the driver told us the van would be in the sample place after the show and it wasn't. Poor.

Fuimos con mi esposo y mis dos hijos adolescentes a ver el ballet en la semana del 16 de Marzo. Hermoso edificio, y muy bueno el ballet, pero lo que fue espantoso que no prohibieran el uso de teléfonos celulares durante el espectáculo. Tendrían que avisar antes de que el show comienza que no se permite el uso de teléfonos para sacar fotos ni para filmar. Hubo gente que estuvo durante todo el show sacando fotos hasta con flash. Una falta de respeto jamas he ido a un show de ese nivel internacional en donde se permita el uso de los celulares.

The folkloric ballet was absolutely stunning, and getting the chance to go inside the Palacio de Bellas Artes was a breathtaking experience myself and companions will never forget. The transportation to and from our hotel was smooth and very professional.

Tour guide on time and very courteous.

The worst! Printed voucher/ electronic voucher was not accepted. "Complimentary pick up" was late so we left. The ballet didn't accept our vouchers, no one spoke English to explain. Turns out the bus had the actual tickets but it's a "complimentary pick up?. Late 15 min into the show
