Museums private tour


Enjoy a drive along Paseo de la Reforma, the most beatiful avenue of Mexico city with statues that graced étoiles or "glorietas", trees lining both sides in emulation of the Champs Elysées and statues that graced the avenue and have a story to tell.

The National Anthropology Museum is an indispensable introduction to any stay in Mexico, with its astonishing collection of pre-Hispanic pieces. Here we shall visit all the most relevant halls.

Next, visit to Chapultepec Castle, a fine example of the interaction of innumerable human interests and undoubtedly one of the foremost symbols of Mexico City. A visit to the Alcazar of Chapultepec is like reliving times when the mansion served as the official residence of viceroys, emperor Maximilian of Habsburg and presidents. Its interior is graced by furniture from different periods, as well as by objects and paintings that invoke its occupants, especially Maximilian of Habsburg & Charlotte, Porfirio Díaz and his wife Carmen Romero Rubio, and Benito Juárez.
