Excellent from start to finish. I was especially pleased with the guide as she made it a point to translate in English equally even though my wife was the only English only speaker in our group of 12. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and I felt like I attended a session of ancient Meso America history and Mexican history. Wish list would have been to have more time at the museum. It was stretched to about 1-1/2. We would have just stayed but we were nearing closing time 5pm.
I was in Mexico City for a week and so anxious to see some of the traditional dance that I had witnessed from Mexican visitors to my community years ago. Had earlier toured the building to see the murals. But I was unprepared for the vivacity and choreography of the show... took my breath away. Plus the that night the dancers honored survivors of the 1968 shooting and that was poignant for me.
The city tour was fantastic- we saw so many things, bypassed lines and our guide was extremely knowledgeable - providing us background and information we never would have picked up on our own. Anthropology museum was a little rushed, but still worth while. I might suggest taking the tours separately rather than combined if your itinerary allows.
I saw this show for the first time and definitely recommend this experience. The music is phenomenal!!
Fantastic experience! Our guide was wonderful and personable- definitely would recommend it!
