I loved this tour - the guide, Danny, was knowledgeable and friendly, with good English and always a smile. The art we saw was amazing and it was great to hear the stories behind it. And the ride was easy because the city is flat and there are lots of bike paths.
Our guide Led (his parents are Zeppelin fans!) took us on a fantastic off-the-beaten path tour of the city's many official murals, some that could only be seen on foot. By traveling via bike, we covered much more area—and who doesn’t feel 10 again riding a bike?? Helmets were provided and with Led leading the way, we felt safe even on crowded streets. He even blocked a bus for us! Stopping for coffee along the way gave us an opportunity to learn more about this wonderful city from our knowledgeable and creative guide. A highlight of our visit!
There was no other way we could have seen so much, what an amazing day thanks Led
This is the best way to see the city
Very off the beaten path but still a great overview of Mexico's history and culture. I did it my first morning and I'm very glad I did.
