Full description
Start the tour by visiting two of the newest buildings in Mexico City, which house two important museums: the Soumaya and Jumex. The first is already a symbol of the city and the second was built by the famous British architect Chipperfield.

Afterward, you will take an Uber taxi along with your guide to visit one of the houses of the architect Luis Barragán. Here you will come to understand the importance of color in Mexican culture. You will also discover the secret spaces that Barragán achieved within his architecture.

After another brief Uber ride, you will arrive at the Chapultepec Park to visit and another iconic work of architecture, the Tamayo Art Museum. After visiting the museum you will enjoy a lunch of contemporary Mexican cuisine in the middle of the Chapultepec Woods, at the Tamayo Museum restaurant.

Next, cross the street to visit the Anthropology Museum, where you will learn about the essentials of pre-Hispanic architecture. From there you will walk 5 minutes to visit the Museum of Modern Art, designed by the same architect. To end the tour, you will walk 5 minutes to explore some of the new skyscrapers of the city.
