Excellent experience
Regina_B, May 2022
Antonio was an outstanding docent!! He was knowledgeable and interesting. I would recommend this tour.
Trouble understanding!
Phillip_D, May 2022
The guide was very nice and knowledgeable but he should be a guide for tours in Spanish. My husband only speaks English and he had trouble understanding the guide.
A history lesson in one day

Antonio was so knowledgeable and gave us a great overview of Mexican anthropological history. We enjoyed our time with him very much.

Didn't happen
Andrew_U, Apr 2022
30 minutes before our "private" tour we were informed that the guide was not available and offered to change to group tour. When we arrived there were 30 people and a gentleman whose English was poor. We asked to cancel and he said no problem. Since that moment all our messages to Amigo were not answered. Put in a request for refund with Viator and were told they will deal with it in 10 days. Terrible experience

Dear Amig@ We are very sorry for your experience and we confirm that the refund has been authorized in our system. Dulce, Amigo Tours

Very heavy Spanish accent and she spoke very quickly. Seemed rushed and the explanations were not sufficient

Enlightening and Informative

I understand why this museum is rated so high! I wanted to understand what I was seeing and hear the history as I indulged in ancient artifacts and art that I’ve never seen before. Our tour guide did not diss appoint. They promptly met us at the entrance and proceeded to methodical share the highlights of the museum. It would take days to view the entire exhibit. Our children 9 and 7 were along and they did well. They were also intrigued by the display of history. Highly recommended and I would it again on my next visit. There’s so much to learn.

Felt like time and money wasted
Mariana_M, Mar 2022
We arrived promptly at our set time of 9:50 to meet the tour guide. The guide let us know we were waiting on more people and to wait in the museum - we ended up waiting until 10:30 or so for the others. When we finally walked into the exhibition area, the tour guide let us know it was a MIXED language group and would talk first in Spanish and then English, even though we had booked and English only tour. We were separated while he gave the introduction to the Spanish group, and by the time it was our turn to be introduced to the museum it had been over an hour and a half since our initial arrival time. With the tour being 4 hours, and having to split the time of the tour into two different languages, this was a terrible experience for all involved, including the tour guide. He did his best, but we eventually split from the group as we were not covering enough of such a huge museum. Overall a VERY frustrating and disappointing experience. I recommend not having split language groups as it decreases time spent learning about the museum, increases frustration, and overall leaves a terrible experience.

Dear Amig@ thank you for letting us know about your experience, we will work to continue offering incredible experiences. Dulce, Amigo Tours
Trash Tour
Ileana_M, Mar 2022
This tour was so bad!! First, we got started almost 30 minutes after the meeting time. I know there was a 10 min wait time but it went over and then we didn't even know what we were waiting for. THEN our tour guide finally went to go buy our tickets and we started the tour right before 10:20A. Once we get to the first section she tells us we're only going to see 3 rooms. On top of that, it ends up being a bilingual tour!!! I knew I had specifically booked this tour to be English only because friends I was traveling with only spoke English. So now, our tour time is DOUBLED and some people in the group don't understand what she's saying half the time. Because I know Spanish I was able to translate what she couldn't convey in English but I know the tour info was SO MUCH better in Spanish and that made me sad because if I didn't understand I would've missed out on extra info. Then, we wanted to break away because we had a reservation to get to and she said she could not give us our tickets (that came with the tour?) so we couldn't come back later. All around super lame experience. DO NOT recommend, book with Airbnb Experiences instead.
