The tour is good and very informed , but is a lot of walking, fortunately the weather is very nice, not too hot but comfortable , I think the tour is decent.
Great choice!
Sharnie R, Oct 2019
This was a very worthwhile tour, Oscar our guide was very professional and passionate about imparting information on the history of Mexico. He coped magnificently with 3 languages, spoke fluently in English, French & Spanish so no one missed out on any explanations. We saw a number of good sites, enjoyed a great coffee and finished the tour with a walk in the Historic downtown area - it was excellent!
Very knowledgeable guide
Akhter_C, Jul 2019
Jose was very knowledgeable, thorough, prompt and well organised. I really enjoyed, the tour. Our guide was passionate about his work. And that rubbed off on us. Could not be better!
Good Introduction to Some Noteworthy Mexico City Sites
Donald_S, Jun 2019
The first, and longest, part of the tour was a walking tour of some noteworthy sites near our hotel in the Reforma area. We had not expected that much walking, but it was not overly taxing. Then we drove to the National Archaeology Museum, where the guide walked us through several of the exhibits, explaining important eras in the history of Mexico.
Excellent and very knowledgable tour guide
Magdalena_Z, May 2019
Our tour guide whos name was Renaldo was excellent and extremely knowledgable about the history of mexico. Due to not many people signing up for the tour, we had the tour guide all to ourselves and he was fantastic at answering all of our questions. I would highly recommend this tour as it was great value and you really get a taste of mexico in a few hours along with a thorough history lesson.

Overview: A great way to gain insight into some of Mexico City's key historic sights. Our guide, Jose, really gets into the details much like a professor who is passionate about his area of expertise. NOTE: lots of walking so wear comfortable shoes and clothing. - Departure Details: Jose met us at our pick up point right on time. We then went to two nearby locations where we picked up four other tourists. Our total group had seven persons. - Metropolitan Cathedral and National Palace: We first strolled through a pedestrian zone/shopping district where we saw lots of colonial buildings. At the cathedral Jose told us all about it and we had time to check it out. A very peaceful place yet it is enormous. We were then escorted into the National Palace a short walk from the cathedral where we spent time learning about the famous Diego Rivera murals. Total time for both places was at least two hours. - Silversmith and Anthropological Museum: On our way to the museum we stopped in a neighborhood and saw a silversmith at work and had the opportunity to purchase some silver jewelry and souvenirs. The craftsmanship was amazing and the prices very reasonable. IMHO, this reminded me more of a wholesaler than a retailer. Spent maybe 35 minutes there then off to the museum. NOTE: bring your own lunch and snacks so you can spend all of your time at the museum looking around and no time in the cafeteria. We asked Jose if we could purchase lunch at the museum, which we did and it was lovely, but it turned into about a 45 minute sit down lunch which ate into our museum time, pun intended. - Chapultapec Area: We didn't stroll though this area, although this is where the museum is.

Very good tour! Our guide Jose was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of information on the history of Mexico. When a couple of people were taking a long time looking in a silver shop, our driver took us to a local church and a small local crafts shop. Was a vey nice tour.

Wonderful. Too much to absorb in 6 hours and too many things going on at the same time. I did this in a Saturday, it seems like everyone was out to celebrate.

Very friendly and knowledgable guide. Really enjoyed the walk through the historic region.However, we were disappointed that we weren't able to go in the Palacio de Bellas Artes.There was only one guide for both English and Spanish which was a bit distracting, but the guide handled it very well.Excellent review of Diego Rivera murals by guide.

VICTORIA_L, Jan 2018
This tour is an absolute MUST! The beautiful cathedrals, land marks and architectural designs, paintings, museums...along with the shopping excursions - fantastic! To know that the cathedrals are sinking and engineering efforts are underway to preserve these historical landmarks is a once in a lifetime opportunity. If you don't get to the Mayan ruins YOU MUST SEE IT or the Museums YOU WILL KICK YOURSELF IF YOU DON'T GO this tour....ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY AMAZING!!!

Nandlal S, Dec 2017
The tour got off to a timely start on a beautiful day in Mexico City, but our tour guide Omar always seemed to be in a hurry. He mostly stayed with one or two of his favorite people, didn't care if everyone was around him when he tried to explain things which mostly were delivered in Spanish. During a bio break, one of our group members tripped in the restroom and sprained her ankle. She arranged for an Uber with her fellow companion and left the tour midstream. Omar had no clue about her until we informed him about this accident as he was busy smoking somewhere with his friend.

daniel.r.beckham, Dec 2017
This tour was not what I thought it would be. The tour started almost 45 minutes late due to traffic. The guide, Theresa, spoke English but not very well. During the tour, we were supposed to see the National Palace, however, it was closed due to a government event. Then, we went to the National Museum of Anthropology which was nice but we passed many sites along the way that we could have walked to and explored.

Jeffie, Dec 2017
Was not all that impressed with the tour guide who kinda rambled on with his explanations of the sights we saw. Would not recommend such a short tour of Mexico City 3.5 hours and I had 3 days.
