A waste
, May 2022
Guide didn’t show up -we waited 40 minutes and took turns walking around looking for the guide. If it was cancelled we did not receive notice. Want $ back.
Very interesting tour.
, May 2022
The guide, Diana, was excellent. Very knowledgeable about the art, artists and Mexican history. Unfortunately the Ministry of Education building was closed so I could not view the murals there. That was disappointing. It would have been good to know that prior to booking my tour.
Combining art and history to understand new aspects of Mexico 🇲🇽

A passionate guide shared Mexicos history through the many government sponsored murals that can be seen throughout Mexico city. An insightful and beautiful your.
Now show, no communication, no refund as yet.

The Viator guide/s were a no show. I was there ten minute early at the meeting point and left after 20 minutes. They did message me to say it had been cancelled. I emailed at the time to say the guides were not there. I have still not had a response or refund.
Because of the Covid...
, Dec 2021
Because of the Covid situation most of the attraction was closed but we got to see some hidden local treasures which the big tour normally won't show to you. Still worth it but I hoped the guide could give more detailed explanation on diego murales. But as it is a general walking tour I think it is good one, we also got some information about the street where is ok to go, where it is not.
Stellar art tour
, Dec 2021
Ulysses was such a fantastic guide. He took us through places we would have never found on our own, including a local market to see some of the most beautiful public art we've ever seen. He really provided extra context about what we were looking at, what was going on in the society at the time when the murals were painted, and explained influences of people like Diego Rivera on students. We would absolutely not hesitate at all to recommend this to tour to anyone who enjoys art and culture. We would give this 10 stars if we could.
Excellent tour for the art and history of Mexico starting 1900
, Feb 2020
This was a great tour in English. When we met they split us into two groups ...Spanish and my group English. Our guide Miguel was great and the tour is chronological to the development of the Mexican Muralists starting in 1920. This was my favorite tour in CDMX and kindled my love affair with Diego Rivera and Orozco.
Eye-opener tour of terrific art
, Jun 2019
I was lucky enough to be solo with a guide on this walking visit to murals scattered around government buildings in downtown Mexico City, reflecting a fascinating period of local history when artists like Diego Rivera were encouraged to produce public art. Most likely I would never have been able to find these on my own and very much appreciated the information and insights provided by my young guide Natasha. If I'd had more time in the city, I would have taken other walking tours with this company. Thank you!

I booked my tour for the Sunday of my visit, but it turns out the company cannot provide this tour on Sundays.

Murals Tour

Victoria is a great guide. She is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. I would highly recommend this tour.
Vlad was an excellent guide...
, Aug 2017
Vlad was an excellent guide, friendly, knowledgeable and a great conversationalist. I received a good primer and learned more than I expected about Mexico's complicated history and the controversial but respected artists who wanted to ensure the history was passed on through artistic expression. The tour is concentrated in the Centro Historico and takes you through government buildings which would be difficult to enter and tour on your own. I liked the small intimate group. Be prepared to be on your feet and bring water, wear a hat and sunscreen. Post-tour, Vlad was also kind to give me tips re: Centro Historico to exchange money and get a tasty, cheap lunch - Fonda S.R. was excellent!

Passeio obrigatório pra quem gosta de arte, cultura e história. O muralismo se entrelaça com a história mexicana e o guia Alejandro nos passou todas as informações possíveis com muito entusiasmo e simpatia. Alguns locais ainda estavam fechados por causa da pandemia mas isso não prejudicou o passeio. Um dos melhores que já fiz. Recomendo fortemente. Vejo Orozco, Siqueiros e Rivera com outros olhos graças a Alejandro.
