1. Mexico City: Business and Tales Historic Walking Tour
Learn all about the Barcelonnettes, a group of French people that tried to create a new life across the ocean and began a business in Mexico back in the 1800s. After their success, many others, also from other countries, began settling in Mexico. On this fascinating and unique tour, you will visit five businesses that are still operating today and belong to the same families that came over 100 years ago. Along the way, your guide will tell you all about the history of the businesses visited and show printed photos from their earlier times. Finish the walking tour in a very traditional and well-preserved cantina-restaurant dating back to 1914. Be amazed at an original bar with former drainage, which was created so that men could sit down while peeing, so that they could continue drinking — a very common practice in the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century.
