Cristian was an amazing...
Nikki_J, Jun 2023
Cristian was an amazing tour guide! He was really friendly, knowledgeable and personable. He made learning history fun! I would recommend doing this tour if you want to understand the ancient history of Mexico City with a great tour guide.
Great guide!
Lilit_G, Jun 2023
Cristian was a fantastic guide! Very informative and engaging. Tour was a very manageable length so you can learn without getting exhausted, then you have a reentry pass until 5p to look around on your own. Perfect break for lunch. Highly recommend !
Stimulating tour of a fabulous collection
rajesh_t, Jun 2023
Comprehensive history of the various Mexican communities and their subjugation by Spanish colonists. Well supported by maps and artifacts
The only way to experience a wonderful museum
Brent_C, May 2023
Get the guide! We visited once without a guide and found the exhibits interesting, but we went back with a guide and he brought the museum to life for us with his stories Fascinating! (Also, only the most valuable items in the collections have signs in English, so you don’t always know what you are looking at without the guide. ) And you are allowed to enter an hour before the general public so you have the museum to yourself. Truly one of the best museum experiences we have ever had.

Museum Wonderful, Tour Terrible
Patricia_D, Apr 2023
The museum itself gets 5 stars. Don't miss it!! The uber left us off at the opposiste side of the park and we had to walk to get there. Because of a medical condition, we need to walk at a slow pace. So I called the tour company and said we'd need to join the tour late. When we got there a guide from a different company called our tour guide who was now in the museum. She refused to tell him where in the museum she was because we were late. So we walked though it ourselves. We spebt $44.00 for this tour and got NOTHING. i understand we were late and she couldn't wait, but don't understand why she wouldn't let us join the tour in progress. Very disappointing.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Dear Patricia We are very sorry about the situation, we understand that you could not arrive on time at the meeting point, however, out of respect for other travelers it is not possible to interrupt the guide while he is giving explanations inside the museum. Thanks for oyur understanding and sorry for the bad experience. Mariana, Amigo tours

Our guide Alexa was super knowledgeable. Really impressive. I did find her a bit difficult to understand. Having a guide in such a huge place was really helpful.

The tour that never was
Maria_C, Feb 2023
We got the 9:50 tour knowing we would not be able to go sooner. We kept getting messages from then stating changes. I got the voucher where it said 9:50. The night before the tour mire messages. When we arrived to the museum the day if the tour we were told at the entrance: - the tour was at 8:50 - if people are missing they are notified of that but they didn’t get any notification that anyone’s was missing. I contacted them on the phone, more of the same. Awful.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Dear Maria_C, we are very sorry to know you couldn't enjoy the tour, we have investigated your case with our team, and unfortunately, we had to change the time of the tour due to it was very crowded at 9:30 am and wanted to offer you a better service, sorry for the misunderstanding. In this case, you can contact your agency to see what solution they can offer you. Hope you have a nice day! Ivana, Amigo Tours Ivana, Amigo Tours

Mexico City Anthropology Museum Private Tour
David_G, Jan 2023
My spouse and I opted for a private tour due to Covid concerns. Our guide was prompt, friendly, and courteous. Although he told us it would take a week to tour all 20 rooms of the museum, he gave us the high points in a 2.5 hour tour. It was fascinating. He discussed the history, the peoples, the art, and how it all related to modern Mexico City. We both felt we learned a lot and enjoyed it immensely.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Dear David We are glad to hear that you and your spouse had a great time during the tour. It was a pleasure to be at your service, we are looking forward to seeing you once again! Mariana, Amigo tours
Ditched the Tour
Michael_H, Dec 2022
Guide was a very nice person, seemed knowledgeable, but her command of English was not good enough for us to understand in a crowded and loud Museum. Headphones and microphone would have helped the guide.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Dear Michael; We deeply regret that this experience has not been satisfactory for you, we do our best to control our times, however there are situations that get out of hand. Thank you for giving us an opportunity, Mariana, Amigo tours
My guide never showed up...
Erica_O, Dec 2022
My guide never showed up at the meeting spot and I was denied a refund. I would not recommend this tour company.
Can't go wrong with this tour!
Ghina_S, Dec 2022
Mariam, provided a lovely tour and hit the highlights of the museum. She set a great pace, and answered questions. Made sure to collect all of us inside the museum rather than waiting in the open sun. Really good to get this overview at the start of my visit. I learned a lot!

Dear Ghina; We are deeply delighted to hear that you had a blast with our team! Thank you so much for choosing us to live this amazing experience. Mariana, Amigo tours
