A worth-while orientation to Mexico City for the first-time visitor

This was a useful orientation to Mexico City for tow first-time visitors. We took Line 1 that covers the Historic Center and the newer Poblano area. This gave us a good overview of where the things we had already on our list were located, and added a few to the list. However, there are many ways in which the service could be included. The English language commentary was adequate, although it could have been more informative. The map of the route was rudimentary, and investment in material of this kind would be useful. Getting access to English language information and a map on the Internet was also difficult, and we ended up picking up our paper tickets from Amigo Hotel, only to find that we had passed the starting point of the tour, due to lack of information. These are faults that can be easily fixed, and we found all the staff efficient and friendly.

Activity was interrupted with no warning. Had to get off the bus.

The sights were interesting. The trip was cut short unannounced. I had to get off the bus as it could not return to the planned location. Therefore I was unable to continue the tour on another bus as I was told I would be able to. There were only a handful of people on the tour with me. No announcement was made. I had to go downstairs to ask the driver. The meeting place was not where to get the bus in the first place. This was not at all clear. Wasted a lot of time.

The show is so beautiful and thrilling and rich, the Opera house ideal

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.

This tour was lead by a very informative and professional guide.

I enjoyed this tour very much. It was a perfect "first tour" of the city. After taking this tour, I had a greater sense of the city and I was able to explore more of Mexico City on my own.
