Not a bad time to pass an hour and a half and walk into some spots we likely wouldn't have come across ourselves. I would've liked more historical info and more interactive guide so not a 5 star review for me, but it was a good way to spend the time.

Javier was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about CDMX and its history. He provided not only a great history lesson but also helped us to plan some of our remaining trips. Highly recommend this tour and this guide, he was excellent!
