Didn’t really get much value out of the guides. The provided tickets were also quite poor seating. Overall, I’d encourage the guides to chat more with the participants. They also behaved more like participants than guides, which was underwhelming to say the least.
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Thank you very much for writing to us, we are going to work on this to make it a better experience. In relation on the tickets its always depending on the day and the show of the grand prix that we had this week, is a really crowded event. Any ways we will see a way to improve in this topic.
Fantastic lucha experience!
Spencer_A, July 2023
I have to admit- I was really looking forward to planning this for my honeymoon. It EXCEEDED expectations. The hosts were so knowledgeable about lucha culture- taught you the chants and a little history. The little bar you go to before hand was great to get to know others in your group. I felt very safe and the hairs made sure to translate to vendors when necessary. Must recommend!
The Lucha Libre experience
Eric_L, July 2023
What an experience! Such a fun time. Starting with some of the best pulque I've had and live music, Ulysses, Luis, and Addy showed us a great time. Then we went to Arena Mexico. Wow is all I can say. This place truly is the Mecca of Lucha Libre. Getting to see one of my favorite luchadors was a nice surprise too.
Great fun!

Leaarning about the history of the Lucha Libra and some of the cheers and swear words fans use at the arena. We also went to a popular salsa bar to try the traditional drink pulque. Ulysses and Aida were attentive and fun.
Fun and energetic experience
Kristen_G, June 2023
So much fun! Guides were very nice and welcoming. The arena is hot in the summer so bring a hand held fan of possible. 100% would do again, excellent service.
Fun & entertaining
Mechelle_D, May 2023
Great night. Fun, Safe, Friendly, great host & pre show drinks & music was so much fun. Show was entertaining.
Event was Enjoyable. Overpriced Overall.
Jonathan_B, Apr 2023
The lucha libre event itself was exciting & enjoyable. The tour however was a tad overpriced for what was provided. Whilst the guides were lovely & very informative the experience outside of the event doesn't justify just simply purchasing the tickets yourself. After starting 20 minutes late we were taken to a crowded loud pub. This had a very fun local vibe but was almost impossible to hear guides or socialize with the group. We were then rushed to finish our drinks before heading to the arena. The arena event itself was very enjoyable but overall felt underwhelmed in terms of the price.
Excellent experience
Suzanne_I, Apr 2023
Fabulous evening. Started with a selection of live music from all over Mexico followed by an awesome night watching the wrestling. There was a party feel to this event and it's suitable for family as well as large groups of friends, looking to start the night off with a bang. Alejandro and Brenda gave us the background to the music and the wrestling and were consumate guides.
Pulque is my new favorite drink
Aristotle_A, Apr 2023
Really great tour! The bar we stopped at beforehand was a lot of fun and the pulque was SO GOOD! The lucha match was very cool and Ulysses was an excellent guide. Highly recommend!
Go for it!
Courtney_V, Apr 2023
What fun! The guides were so great! Both spoke English very well. Looked after our group. Felt safe. Good value as it included some alcoholic drink and a luchador mask!
A ‘do not miss’ experience whilst in Mexico City - fun for ANY age!
Madie_G, Mar 2023
A super fun experience with great guides! Going to the bar with music was fun, drinks were great and luche Libre was a unique experience! A must do whilst in Mexico City!
Lucha Libre!
Romel_G, Mar 2023
This was a great tour! Our tour operator took us to a bar to have drinks before the actual show. The show was great! It was our first time going to a Libre match and they did not disappoint!
A night of fun!
Emily_R, Mar 2023
This was a fantastic experience. My husband and I really enjoyed the history provided by our guide about the Pulqueria and the Lucha Libre. The pulque tasting was great, live music, and watching the wrestling at the Arena Mexico was fun. Walking around the arena after the matches was also an amazing experience. People know how to party!
Just do it!
Debbie_M, Mar 2023
Fun, well organised and highly recommend- the team looked after us and knew their stuff 💯 The Pulque was a treat and at a fun bar with live music.
Fun night out
Johanny_M, Feb 2023
Overall a good experience! Great for a solo traveler cuz a night of pulque and lucha libre is so much more fun with others! The guides were great! The pulque was delicious and they booked a band to play some songs and everyone at the place was dancing, singing. The lucha libre fight was good. Arena Coliseo is intimate so we had great seats. The only thing I wish were different is that because we were waiting for some folks we started about 20 minutes late, so the time at the pulqueria was cut short. I barely had enough time to finish a cup.
Gary_H, Feb 2023
The tour was good. It was enjoyable, although the place in the arena could've been better. For the price, it was ok.
Great experience!
Victoria_Z, Jan 2023

Lucha libre experience
Allie_T, Jan 2023
Josan and Alejandro were excellent guides who were knowledgeable about Lucha libre! They provide basic info and fun facts about the luchadors! You can tell they are really passionate about the fights and it made the experience more entertaining! Would def recommend going to a Lucha libre fight if you are able to!
So sad to miss Lucha Libre
Terri_K, Jan 2023
We were so excited and looking forward to Lucha Libre, even took an Uber early to the meeting spot. We were heart broken because we never connected with the tour guide and because of phone troubles we couldn't message or call him. We requested a refund, it's been over a month and still no communication regarding our request. This was a huge disappointment.
Book it!!
Christian_T, Jan 2023
Definitely worth a visit when you’re in Mexico City. We loved our guide and the whole experience. The pulque bar had a great vibe with live music, and the beer was free flowing. FANTASTIC!
