Full description

Join this tour and explore Mexico City with a live guide. Discover the rich history of this city, known as The City of the Gods. Visit the National Palace and see the beautiful murals painted by the great artist Diego Rivera. 

Start your trip with a pickup from your hotel. Sit back and enjoy the ride to the historical center of Mexico City, listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage. Marvel at the countless monuments and the architectural style as you drive.

Next, visit the National Palace. If you are a fan of Diego Rivera's art, this is a great place to see his work. Marvel at his murals as your guide tells you interesting facts about his work and life.

Walk around the Central Plaza, and admire the Metropolitan Cathedral. Then, continue to Chapultepec Park, the second-largest city park in Latin America. Stroll around the park or enjoy a picnic by the idyllic lake if you like.

Visit the National Museum of Anthropology, one of the top museums in the world. Discover a wonderful collection of art, artifacts, and history going back further than 4000 years. 

Explore each section and be sure not to miss the iconic Aztec calendar stone. The museum is a must-visit when you are pretty sure it might even be the best museum you have ever visited in Mexico.

After your visit, your tour will end. So jump in the car, reminisce about your day as you enjoy a ride back to your hotel.

Excellent from start to finish. I was especially pleased with the guide as she made it a point to translate in English equally even though my wife was the only English only speaker in our group of 12. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and I felt like I attended a session of ancient Meso America history and Mexican history. Wish list would have been to have more time at the museum. It was stretched to about 1-1/2. We would have just stayed but we were nearing closing time 5pm.

The city tour was fantastic- we saw so many things, bypassed lines and our guide was extremely knowledgeable - providing us background and information we never would have picked up on our own. Anthropology museum was a little rushed, but still worth while. I might suggest taking the tours separately rather than combined if your itinerary allows.

Good overview of the city

On the tour we got a good overview of the most important sights in Mexico City. Recommend to do this tour at the beginning of the visit so you can learn and choose what you want to see more and deeper as the city is very big. But if you have only a little time like I had, this was a great tour to see the most important sights. Tour guide Humberto lovely, knew what he is talking about and cared genuinely for the people on his tour. That added the extra touch.
