4.2 / 5

You can easily rent a bike and ride around and look at the city yourself, which is highly recommended in any case. But if you want to go directly to the things that are most interesting then having a tour guide is the best way to go about it. If you happen to be in the city on a Sunday, some of the major avenues are closed including La Reformer Avenue and you can ride a bike from Chapeltepec park all the way to the church of Guadalupe but this is not part of any tour. Make sure you bring a bike lock so that you can leave the bike. If you do go to the church of Guadalupe make sure that you climb the stairs behind the church to the very top to see another church and I’m much better view.

Great guide, very well informed, very motivated, his route in the museum was very well thought and there were interesting details shared. There were also stories about the finding of the exhibits that were very interesting. Glad to have yaken the tour both at the anthropology and the trmplo mayor museum.

It was perfect. With the reservation number they gave us the tickets and one can use the Turi bus for 24 hours, that gives the chance to do the 3 routes with the same value. a successful plan.
