Mexico City is so big it can be overwhelming deciding where to go first. This is a great way to start!


After this tour, you will have a very good idea of how exciting and interesting Mexico City can be! You will visit the main highlights of the Historical Center and Chapultepec (two areas that no one should miss!).

We will go back in time to discover the amazing Aztec ruins, magnificent colonial buildings such as the Cathedral (largest in Latin America), the National Palace and San Ildefonso.

In just a few blocks we will see and learn about the mighty Aztec Empire, the Spanish conquest, the colonial period, 19th-century architecture and modern buildings (Traditional Mexican food is also part of it!).

After exploring the Historical Center, we will visit the only Castle in Latin America where a real European Emperor lived (1863-1867). Today it is the National Museum of History. Walking around its gardens and hallways will make you feel like a true Emperor.

As the Castle is on top of the Chapultepec hill, get ready to enjoy one of the best views of Mexico City!

A Recent Review of this tour

Juan and his driver David were an absolute delight. Both speak English perfectly, Juan is a wealth of information and David knows his stuff too. Both are kind, patient and considerate, always aware of our needs. They accommodated us when walking became too much, even carrying small folding chairs for us. We laughed and chatted all day long, and learned so much about Mexico City. I highly recommend Juan! Today was most enjoyable.
