What people are saying about Mexico City

Our guides were Isabel and Abel, they really have a good back and forth, good natured joking with each other. Abel was the driver and I have to hand it to him and his skill. Isabel was very knowledgeable and professional. She had very good insights for every place we went. I liked that we were given plenty of opportunities to go to the restroom. I'd have liked to have given more time at the Shrine of Guadalupe.

I was very impressed with the museum, what we saw, what we heard and all the information that was given to us. I should let my friends know that the first place to visit in CMDX is the museum to understand the origen and
