A Recent Review of this tour

Another lovely day with our guide, Hector, this time exploring the pristinely maintained Chapultapec Castle and two other art museums in the area. Hector accommodated my wife's knee issues by having her access a secret elevator to the top of the castle. He then skillfully guided us through several centuries of indigenous and later Spanish and Mexican history through the exhibits in the museum. Later, Hector introduced us another great Mexican artist, Leonora Carrington. We soaked in the day with coffee.
