Excellent tour!

The tour is excellent, the weather is very well spent, our guide was Cesar, who has extensive knowledge of the history of the city and a great passion for transmitting it. It was a very fun day, where we met awesome places, ate delicious and learned a lot.

LuLu was amazing and very knowledgeable of the area as well as the history of CDMX. We even did an extra stop to CU to see the campus. The Frida Kahlo museum was Beautiful and she got us in immediately without having to wait too long. Highly recommend!

This tour was well worth every cent!!

I absolutely loved the tour and my guide Jocelyn was incredible!! I am fascinated with Mexico's history and she answered every question I had. Also, each of the three sites was unique and interesting.

I really enjoyed this tour. For me Frida Kahlo museum is very interesting place to visit. And Kevin (our tour guide) is one of the best tour guides I have encountered during my years of traveling.

Very happy with the tour and with the attention of the guide and driver
