Frida Kalhos museum was closed because of COVID restriction and he accepted to follow us for free to anthropological museum just to make us happy! Thank you for the experience!!!!

One of the better tours I have ever been on. Fabio, the guide, was witty, caring and informative. A good combination of history at the university, unique party at Xochimilco, and the charm and memory of the area around Frida Khalo's neighborhood. Well organized and thought out.

Roberto, our guide was very insightful & informative when it came to the history of Mexico & the interpretation of the murals at the University site which is a Unesco world heritage.
