We had visited the Museum of Anthropology years ago and found it amazing, but we didn't feel we had enough time. This time, with a guide, we saw far less of the museum, but we learned a lot more. I would recommend taking the tour, then returning on your own. Give yourself a lot of time. From there, we walked to Chapultapec Castle to continue the tour. We ended after 4 hours (instead of 6) but I think the group was tired and hungry and our brains were full by then. If you are not up for a lot of walking and standing, be sure to mention it while scheduling. There isn't a lunch scheduled, so bring snacks. Our guide allowed us to stop and buy some food and cold drinks in Chapultapec Park, which got us through. Our guide was knowledgeable and personable. I really enjoyed gaining a better understanding of the symbols and context for the exhibits.
It was an amazing tour! Amigos Tour picked us in the meeting point on time and our guide, Rosa Maria, told us ALL the history of this place. Actually, she explained us everything about México history, their culture and costumes. In my opinion, her guidance made the difference. Chapultepec castle has a very beautiful arquitecture and we have a perfect view from the City there. In the Antropology museum we have all the history of American civilization, so, Its a place to learn a lot! After visiting these 2 places, we spent our time walking in Chapultepec park, its was perfect. You can’t miss this tour.
It was great! Natalia gave an excellent overview about Castillo de Chapultepec and the story around it. We now understand a lot more about Mexico and it’s story. Thanks Natalia!!
