The Tour was perfect - correct timing, we were given masks and shots of tequilas on the way to Arena Mexico while the guide was explaining a bit about the places we were passing by. The places where we were seated at the hall were very good as well as you could see absolutely everything from top - I like it very much!

It was a very good experience, the problem I had was that my reservation did not appear and the operator did not know how to organize that inconvenience either and that we did not know which was the transport that would take us to the event

Friendly, astute and well versed guide took us on a journey into a national treasure for which he had his own passion. And we had a blast to boot!

the tour was very well organized. the tour guide was very informative.
