México City: Wrestling Tour

1. México City: Wrestling Tour

Feel the intensity of the ring on a guided tour of México City's Arena Mexico. Learn about la Lucha Libre with a shot of tequila from your guide. Watch live fights and take a scenic ride on the Capital Bus Zócalo. Enjoy a panoramic view on board of the double floor bus with a retractable roof visiting Monumento a la Revolucion, Alameda Central, Glorieta de Colón, and Parroquia de la Sta. Veracruz. Arriving at Arena Mexico you will receive a free mask and a shot of tequila and will live and understand the culture of the wrestling art, explained by the guide. Mexican wrestling began in 1840, one hundred years before it became an official sport. The first wrestling took place in public squares, theaters, bull rings, or any small box ring where fight demonstrations take place. At the beginning of the 20th century, most of the wrestling promoters were foreigners, for example, the Italian Giovanni Resselech, who organized two wrestling seasons in 1910, and the Belgian Constant le Marin, who first made a presentation including a Mexican versus a Romanian wrestler in 1921. With this background and the increasing popularity of this activity, the first wrestling function was made in Arena Mexico on September 21st of 1933, on the previously called Arena Modelo.

The Tour was perfect - correct timing, we were given masks and shots of tequilas on the way to Arena Mexico while the guide was explaining a bit about the places we were passing by. The places where we were seated at the hall were very good as well as you could see absolutely everything from top - I like it very much!

It was a very good experience, the problem I had was that my reservation did not appear and the operator did not know how to organize that inconvenience either and that we did not know which was the transport that would take us to the event

Friendly, astute and well versed guide took us on a journey into a national treasure for which he had his own passion. And we had a blast to boot!

Fun way to see culture a different way.

This is a fun way to learn about another part of the Mexican culture that you might otherwise miss.

the tour was very well organized. the tour guide was very informative.
