Wow! I booked the experience to learn more about the Day of the Dead but I was definitely surprised. I fell in love with this tradition. The hosts were very friendly and the experience was incredible, especially the mezcal cream and the smell of pre-hispanic incense. They greatly exceeded my expectations. Highly recommended!

Way better than I expected. I learned some Mexican history related to the colonial Era, as well as a ton of information on the practice and history of the Day Of The Dead. It's a lot deeper than I thought! We also tasted 2 types of mezcal which was very cool to try and learn about. These guys know their stuff. The hosts also walked us around the neighborhood a bit to recommend some mole and churro locations and overall I think this was really a good time. Totally worth the time and money.

Very colorful, very beautiful! We learned so many things about day of the dead. I’m glad we were able to do this activity even if it’s not day of the dead season.
