Overview: A great way to gain insight into some of Mexico City's key historic sights. Our guide, Jose, really gets into the details much like a professor who is passionate about his area of expertise. NOTE: lots of walking so wear comfortable shoes and clothing.
- Departure Details: Jose met us at our pick up point right on time. We then went to two nearby locations where we picked up four other tourists. Our total group had seven persons.
- Metropolitan Cathedral and National Palace: We first strolled through a pedestrian zone/shopping district where we saw lots of colonial buildings. At the cathedral Jose told us all about it and we had time to check it out. A very peaceful place yet it is enormous. We were then escorted into the National Palace a short walk from the cathedral where we spent time learning about the famous Diego Rivera murals. Total time for both places was at least two hours.
- Silversmith and Anthropological Museum: On our way to the museum we stopped in a neighborhood and saw a silversmith at work and had the opportunity to purchase some silver jewelry and souvenirs. The craftsmanship was amazing and the prices very reasonable. IMHO, this reminded me more of a wholesaler than a retailer. Spent maybe 35 minutes there then off to the museum. NOTE: bring your own lunch and snacks so you can spend all of your time at the museum looking around and no time in the cafeteria. We asked Jose if we could purchase lunch at the museum, which we did and it was lovely, but it turned into about a 45 minute sit down lunch which ate into our museum time, pun intended.
- Chapultapec Area: We didn't stroll though this area, although this is where the museum is.
Very good tour! Our guide Jose was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of information on the history of Mexico. When a couple of people were taking a long time looking in a silver shop, our driver took us to a local church and a small local crafts shop. Was a vey nice tour.
So much ground covered in numerous locations with an extremely knowledgeable guide. Picked up from hotel in modern air conditioned van and straight to it. Great locations - Post Office, Cathedral, Presidential Palace, Tiled house and Anthropology museum. Recommended
