Loved our tour guide. He was personable, friendly, very knowledgeable and gave us a detailed insight into the history of Mexico and the sights we visited. We would certainly use Viator again!

Love it! The family was so excited to see Frida's blue house, and a special treat we had enough time to stop by Diego Studio home (this is not part of the tour), we all paid the museum price to enter the studio. Wonderful tour.
