What people are saying about State of Mexico

my guide david was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. having made a decision to return to anahuacalli, he was very flexible with tour content and timing. we explored the museum and stories and had a blast. the newer part of the museo grounds [including the restrooms when you enter] are not to be missed for those interested in contemporary architecture. viva!

We were lucky enough to get a private tour for two. Three hours were planned, which easily became 4. We felt that we were in good hands at all times and were taken to interesting places, which were explained to us with background stories. Thank you for this great tour!

I enjoyed experiencing the different barrios from a different perspective. Our guide Ivan was really nice and I enjoyed conversation, also with other participants.
