Venture inside the stunning monument, and discover rooms of classical European ornamentations. Stroll the halls full of light and discover stairways made of marble.

Admire the sculptures and busts of historical figures, such as Emperor Cuauhtémoc and the Spanish Conquistador Hernán Cortés, along the way. Then depart Chapultepec Castle (also known as the "National Museum of History") and break for lunch, before going to the National Museum of Anthropology.

We booked a private tour. it was very very good! Roberto was a great guide, spoke good English and had a huge knowledge! It were 5 hours, with a 20minutes break. I imagine it varies depending in how interested you are, we had so many questions and he took the time to answer them!

The was more than excellent. Leanardo was our tour guide. I was very impressed about how much knowledge he has about the history of Mexico. Every item he introduced us to was well informed. I was overwhelmed by the size of the museums. Every artifact displayed was beautiful. I would definitely recommend those who are interested in learning the history and artwork rather than browsing and observing. Thank you Leonardo for educating us. A lot of information to remember. Muchisimo gracias

The guided tour of the Anthropology museum and Chapultepec castle was good. Jaime is a good guide and his explanations are interesting. However, the group started with 24 people. It ended with about 12. 24 is way too big for a museum tour. No microphones or headsets. It took 45 minutes for the guide to check everyone in and get the entrance tickets. There is a lot of walking including up hill to get to the castle.
