Mexico City: Chapultepec & Reforma Historic Bike Experience
- Small group
- Duration: 4 hours
It was an amazing tour! Amigos Tour picked us in the meeting point on time and our guide, Rosa Maria, told us ALL the history of this place. Actually, she explained us everything about México history, their culture and costumes. In my opinion, her guidance made the difference. Chapultepec castle has a very beautiful arquitecture and we have a perfect view from the City there. In the Antropology museum we have all the history of American civilization, so, Its a place to learn a lot! After visiting these 2 places, we spent our time walking in Chapultepec park, its was perfect. You can’t miss this tour.
I lucked out and had my tour on one of the 4 nights a year that major avenues are shut down just for biking in the city. Pablo did a fantastic job blending these festivities and hitting the other big spots. He is super friendly and had a great sense of humor and passion for the biking community. In conversation throughout the tour I learned about the history of Mexico City and a good deal about the culture and other "insider" tips for the rest of my stay. Pablo's bike tours are a must anytime but especially if you've just arrived and want to know what you have to see/visit before you go.
We absolutely loved our guide! He was knowledgeable and really passionate about sharing the complicated history of this country with us. He worked super diligently and was so admirable as am sure for an expert of his caliber, it must be hard answering silly questions that tourists ask. We wish the tour lasted longer as he was fascinating to listen to, we would have loved to spend many more hours listening to him!
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.
Alma did a great job explaining the history of the castle and the museum. She was very accommodating to our questions, photo-taking and interests. I recommend the trip for anyone interested in Mexico City’s rich history.
