The canals are super cool!!

The canals are amazing as is the College of Mexico City. The rest of the tour we had done on our own two days before this visit. It was beautiful and historic, but my dad is fluent in German and English, but unfortunately not Soanish. Since the vast majority of were Spanish speakers he (and at times, myself) were a bit left out on the larger picture. I did enjoy the tour overall. Lots of great info!

This tour was guided by the amazing Humberto. He took us to multiple locations and has a lot of knowledge about the whole city. Moreover, I am learning Spanish so I asked Humberto to speak in Spanish. He said: 'Of course!' and said that he will talk a bit slower for me which really helped me to understand what he was saying. Also when I didn't understand it, he explained it to me. Overall, the tour was amazing, especially Xochimilco! I also made some Peruvian friends who were following the same tour. Thanks for the amazing day! Saludos de Liana (Maria Sapulette) de Holanda.
