Know More about this tour

After meeting your guide, head to the National Museum of Anthropology to learn and admire all about the Aztec and Maya culture. You'll get access to the 23 permanent exhibit halls showcasing traditional Mexican history and artifacts, including the Aztec Stone of the Sun.

After seeing this incredible place, you will continue your tour to Reforma Avenue where you will see important monuments and sculptures representing various stories that have shaped the history of Mexico. This includes the iconic “Angel of Independence,” “Diana the Huntress,” and the more recently added "Column of the Bicentennial.”

Then, head to the Palace of Fine Arts, known as Palacio de Bellas Artes, which is considered one of the world's most beautiful buildings. Here, you'll enjoy a guided tour inside and get exclusive, behind-the-scenes access to its National Theater. The theater was considered the most important of its kind in the artistic and cultural life of Mexico during the second half of the nineteenth century. Learn about the amazing performances that have taken place there and admire its amazing and one-of-a-kind curtain. It is made with nearly a million pieces of mosaic colored glass from Tiffany's in New York and weighs 27 tons. It's the only curtain of its kind in any theater in the world.

Finally, visit historic downtown. There, you will visit the Zocalo, where the Aztec empire was once seated. Learn from your guide about “The Great Tenochtitlan” which was later demolished by the Spanish conquest to build the colonial city. Admire the wonderful Metropolitan Cathedral and feel the hustle and bustle of locals walking by. Continue the tour as you walk through some of the busiest streets in downtown and admire some emblematic buildings from the outside, such as the National Palace which is home to the President's office.

  • Very poorly organized
    Spent hours in shops and long lunch and only short time at sites
    Most passengers were Spanish speaking with only 2 english tourists so english guiding was extremely short
    Very disappointed would recommend to any english speaking tourists
    You cant sell those tours to English speaking tourists its deceiving

  • Unfortunately my mobile phone was stolen during this walking tour. It happened just outside the gates of the Cathedral on the sidewalk where several vendor carts were set up. I was squirted with some liquid water? on the back of the neck and was immediately assisted by a middle aged woman who was distracting me by rubbing my neck. Ten minutes later I realized my mobile phone, which had been in the breast pocket of my shirt, was gone. Please be careful. This was a very unfortunate experience, but I understand that one takes risks walking in a large crowd on city streets. Our guide was very knowledgeable and I had enjoyed the tour experience up until the point of the theft.

  • Excellent tour with an awesome knowledgeable guide. Did lose cell phone stolen? but the tour was great!!! highly recommended, spoke good English and good lunch restaurant recommendation!!!

  • Not a bad tour, but not the best for myself. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Unfortunatley for me the tour was basically the Museum, which I could take or leave, then a taxi ride to the Bellas Artes, We were there on a day that they allowed us into the hall and they did a short play giving the history of the the Bellas Artes it is a wonderful building. Then we walked to the Zocalo, where unfortuantely we were only able to go into the Cathedral, other places were blocked off because of a concert they were setting up for.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • First of all, we were picked up late and then we had to transport some other people to a different location so right from the start we were behind schedule. Let me be very clear...our guide was amazing and she did everything she could to make this a great tour but we were really short on time. In your description it says that a small amount of walking will be part of the tour. We walked at least four miles in the hot sun. We did not even have time for a break and only after we protested did we get 20 minutes for a quick sandwich and bottle of water. This was an all day tour in the hot Mexican sun and we don't even get a beverage break much less lunch? I am 67 and my husband is 70 and this was a lot to expect from us. Finally, the trip boasted a behind the scenes tour of the theatre with a chance to see the Tiffany curtain. We did not get to see the curtain at all, and the behind the scenes promotion was false advertising. I will NEVER recommend a Viator tour and will warn all my friends and family of the same.

  • Horrible tour company - very disorganized and the tour guide was horrible. Didn't know anything about the landmarks and had a very unfriendly personality

  • The museum was incredible. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The one major downside was that we picked up other tourists through out the day that did not have the same package so we saw the murals at Bellas Artes but never got to enter the theatre and see the behind the scenes....very disappointing.
