On our Free Historical Center Tour of Mexico City we will go through almost one thousand years of history in a fun and entertaining way. From its beginning as the capital of the Aztec Empire, through to the Spanish Conquest led by Hernán Cortés, until reaching its Independence again in the 19th century. Discover the mega metropolis which was born amongst volcanoes and built over five great lakes!

Admire the 20th century Art Nouveau architecture in buildings such as the Palace Of Fine Arts, or the majestic Latin-American Tower, the first skyscraper in the world to withstand an earthquake!

Discover why the lakes around the city were drained, and hear the story of how Mexico went from being a Spanish colony to an independent empire ruled by Agustín de Iturbide, the first emperor of Mexico, right in front of the palace which was his home.

Gabriel was awesome

5/5 Stars

Gabriel was awesome. He was so knowledgeable, interesting enthusiastic with some humor thrown in. I am a licensed tour guide in nyc and I know I have never given a tour as comprehensive as Gabriel. He really knows his stuff the three hours flew by, I could have stayed for 3 more but we were hungry and he recommended an excellent restaurant for lunch. My husband asks many questions and Gabriel was very patient and not only answered but explained hundreds of years of history. Thanks for a great tour
