Enjoyable, relaxing (the park and the castle), and very educational.

The park is beautiful and relaxing. The Castle is beautiful and the tour incorporated so many different aspects of Mexico's complex history. Our tour guide Rick was an especially thoughtful historian. As a history major myself, I really appreciated that. And learned a lot and enjoyed the tour of all three sites.
Amazing tour and guide!

Book this amazing tour of Chapultapec Castle and Anthropology Museum

Although there were several options and this tour had fewer reviews, they were all 5 stars. We chose this due to the other options with more reviews with lower ratings.

I am so glad we did!!!

Ricardo was amazing, knowledgeable, and warm. He brought the forest (and he'll explain why he calls it a forest and not a park) to life with his stories and explanations. He highlighted seemingly small features and showcased the historical significance with great detail and completely enhanced our experience.

We started at the Puerta de los Leones and strolled for about 30 minutes before heading up to the castle. He shared stories about all the monuments along the way and let us in on the nicknames the locals have for all the buildings. (The Dorito was my favorite). After the castle we made our way to the Anthropology museum. Again Ricardo shared so many details that went beyond anything I could imagine.

His knowledge was amazing and we learned so much from Ricardo. Best of all Ricardo graciously took photos to capture the moments for us!

I wholeheartedly recommend anyone looking for a tour in CDMX to book this tour!!

Ricardo, thank you so much for a great time. We will definitely look you up for more tours on our next trip to CDMX!
Huge huge recommendation

Totally worth it

Ricardo was fantastic. We met people on a different tour in another part of town and they recommended that we take this tour with Rick. He gave a very different take on the local tour style bc he is a real historian. He has a degree in history and exudes passion with every historical fact he shares. So knowledgeable and can rattle off the date of literally every single thing that's ever happened over the last thousand years in Mexico. Such an informative and enjoyable time.
