Fun guide. Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about all we saw.
Jocelyn was a wonderful guide, very personable, and clearly had a vast amount of knowledge about Mexico's history. It was definitely a smart move to have English translations for our visit to Chapultepec Castle and the anthropology museum. So much information to absorb, and as others have pointed out, all of the signage at Chapultepec is in Spanish. Our only critique was that it felt as though more detailed information was presented to the other guests in Spanish, then summarized in English without as much detail. It was a bilingual tour so I know some of this couldn't be helped, and honestly, I can't be sure my observations is true, but that was our experience. All said, I'd still book again!
Ernesto is an amazing tour guide because he knows so much about the history of Mexico. We met early morning in Chapultepec Park for a walking tour up to the Castle. The walk itself is beautiful. There is so much vegetation in the Park you can barely hear the busy traffic of Mexico City surrounding it! The Castle itself is very interesting and Ernesto explained the stories of important figures who helped shape modern Mexico. He was thorough and went deep, making it clear to all of us that he passionately loves Mexico and her history. Following the Castle, Ernesto took us to the Museum of Anthropology. For me, this museum was the highlight of my vacation. He led us through the signature exhibits. I cant wait to go back and spend a week exploring the museum.
This tour was a beautiful experience, I learned so much. Our guide from Amigo tours was informative and funny this made for great tour.
We loved this tour and our guide was very informative! My only suggestion, is that the guide wear a hat with the tour company logo. In rushing to get to the meeting point on time main entrance was closed, we scrambled a bit to locate him apart from other folks there. Once we got going though, we really enjoyed it! We learned about how diverse the culture was here, as it wasn't just the Aztecs. Just like in present day real life, there are plenty of layers of rich history interwoven into the heritage of this region. Looking with my California/American eyes, we mainly just hear about the Aztecs and Mayans. Loved that our guide shed much light on the variety of cultures as we toured each section of the Anthro museum. And as he did with the pre-hispanic history, so he did with the more modern history in regards to the castle. Loved the stories he shared about Benito Juarez and Emperor Maximilian. Besides hearing their names in passing, I had know idea about the complexities of Mexican political history. We really enjoyed each tour. Not meaning to confuse in my review, but we did the castle tour first, then the museum. Enjoy!
This trip was great! Our tour guide Julio was friendly and very entertaining. He conducted the whole tour in Spanish and English. That is going above and beyond making sure everyone in the group learned something. This tour will not leave you disappointed.
An amazing tour with a brilliant guide. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the meeting the guide in the heart of Chapultepec Park on our first morning in Mexico City after a lengthy journey to get there but it was definitely worth it. It was great visiting the castle before the hordes of people descend on it and the anthropology museum was outstanding. There were only three of us as part of the group which certainly helped but our Mexican guide, Kevin was excellent, He was extremely knowledgeable and had a relaxed manner about him allowing us plenty of time to take photographs and enjoy cafe along the way. We never felt rushed and it was an excellent experience. I would thoroughly recommend to anyone.
An outstanding experience. The guide was extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
Excellent tour!!!. Francisco made a great job explaining the Mexico history during the tour. It was well planned and with a great value!!
Gerson was our guide--we love this guy! He is entertaining and hospitable and really made this trip enjoyable. I brought my study abroad university students, and we had only just arrived in CDMX 12 hours earlier, so it was very hard on us to follow Gerson up the path to the Castillo--that's my only suggestion, keep in mind that not all guests are acclimated to the altitude of CDMX.
