It was a very good activity where you can learn a lot about the history of Mexico. The guide Ignacio is very friendly and explains very well (that is if "they are well studied" if not, they will give it a 1 hahahahahahaha.) Regards

Explore different eras of Mexico City, on this guided tour of the most historical places in the Chapultepec Forest: the Chapultepec Castle and the Nationalquartz Anthropological Museum.

Itinerary

Our first stop will be the Chapultepec Castle, currently the National History Museum, and one which was the scene of numerous battles during the American invasion, military college, and Presidential residence until 1944. It was also the imperial palace of Maximiliano and Carlota: the former was an Austrian duke in the house of Hapsburg the latter a Belgian princess, who were implemented as Emperor and Empress of Mexico during a six-year French intervention known as the "Second Mexican Empire".

We'll spend 1 hour 30 minutes visiting the castle. During the tour, we'll see sculptures of historical figures such as Cuauhtémoc (the last Aztec Emperor) and Hernán Cortés (one of the first Spanish colonisers), and discover interesting stories about the conquest, independence and revolution. We'll breathe the French air of 19th century Mexico as we pass through halls decorated in a traditional European style and get to know the life of Emperor Maximiliano.

Having enjoyed some of the best views of Mexico City from the balconies of the Chapultepec Castle then you will have free time for perhaps a refreshing drink.

Then our tour continues, taking you back to the very origins of Mesoamerica, on a 2-hour 30-minute guided tour of the National Anthropological Museum, which holds the largest collection of pre-Colombian art in the world.

We'll follow the footsteps of prehispanic societies, discovering reconstructions of the tombs and temples of the old Aztec and Mayan civilisations, as well as invaluable archaeological pieces from the Zapotec, Toltec, Teotihuacan and Mexica civilisations.

Partial closures

Occasionally, Chapultepec Castle may close without prior notice. If we're unable to do this part of the tour, we'll offer you a refund for the corresponding part of the tour.
