You can easily rent a bike and ride around and look at the city yourself, which is highly recommended in any case. But if you want to go directly to the things that are most interesting then having a tour guide is the best way to go about it. If you happen to be in the city on a Sunday, some of the major avenues are closed including La Reformer Avenue and you can ride a bike from Chapeltepec park all the way to the church of Guadalupe but this is not part of any tour. Make sure you bring a bike lock so that you can leave the bike. If you do go to the church of Guadalupe make sure that you climb the stairs behind the church to the very top to see another church and I’m much better view.

A very safe journey of almost 4 hours, with several stops to rest and listen to the LED guide, some very interesting explanations of the monuments under renovation. The entrance to Chapultepec is spectacular looking from the front of the monument to the heroes children, and the castle on top. We went through the entire first section knowing monuments, magical places, fountains and paths with a very interesting flora. Really highly recommended and a minimum condition is required to finish it without difficulty. The guide Danielle (led) very friendly, knowledgeable about the route and the history of Mexico.
