El recorrido está muy bien pensado. Pudimos aprender de varias épocas de la historia de México. Nos encantó la parte de la UNAM. Laura sabía mucho y nos dio muchas recomendaciones. Lo recomendaría mucho.

This was kind of a boring tour, way too much history (so if you are very into history maybe that’s good…). We spent way too much time at each stop. When we got to the central square of the neighborhood it was super cute and we wished we had just cake without a tour to explore the shops on our own.
