I had waited for years to see a "big-league" corrida at the Plaza México. It was a great experience, even though the performances of the toreros and the toros didn't seem really top-drawer to me. Hector's arrangements for seat selection and transportation worked perfectly. I was entirely satisfied with the experience I had been anticipating for so long. I was surprised that the Plaza looked a little shabby, no doubt an indication of the decline in popularity of the corrida.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Alfred. It was a great experience! Thanks to you, I found again "la fiesta" aside to the terrible pain inflicted to bull, which I truly regret, the show is baroque even under the light of an over casted sky, a gallant show of light and shadows, music and drama with outbursts of laughter and no doubt humor, although many times dark. Thank you!
