I really enjoyed my tour with Ana. I learned a lot and it was a great introduction for my first time in Mexico city, traveling alone. A great way to spend part of an 8 hour layover there.

Gracias Jerry! It’s very important for us that you choose to go out to the city, instead of waiting inside the airport during your few hours here. For sure it beats sitting down, waiting for your flight! Thanks for your review!
