The Monkey Experience - Worth every moment!

We took two tours with this group: the The Real Day of the Dead (1 Day Tour) as well as the Walking Tour with Eduardo y Mirna, and could not have had a better experience. Eduardo was knowledgeable about history and lore, patient, and very interpersonal in his narratives. He also was a great resource for things to do around CDMX on other days ( restaurants, places of interest, etc.) Mirna was kind, patient, and showed us the real Día de Muertos experience as if we were locals. I cannot recommend these tours enough. Our experience with "The Monkey Experience" was top notch.

Fantastic Dia de los Muertos tour

I joined the Dia de los Muertos on 2 Nov. I was a bit apprehensive because it was going to be a long day, from 8am to 10 pm - but in the end, it was so worth it and i´m very glad i went! We stopped in Xochimilco first for a short ride on a trajinera, tacos and drinks and mariachis... then we visited to busy cemeteries, including Mixquic. The transport was comfortable, our guide Paco was friendly, clear, fun and had good English. It was a pleasure to be able to witness Day of the Dead like a local, i couldn´t have done this without the tour and everything was really high standard. Thank you for the memories!

I took the "Real Day of the Dead" tour and it exceeded my expections. The began with an performance to explain the Day of the Dead. Very intertaining. We visited two cemeteries and also had lunch. The first cemetery is where Paco's grandfather is buried. Very informative. Lunch was held at a very nice restaruant and the food was exccellent. The second cemetery was a very popular place. Very crowded but still enjoyable. Overall is was a fabulous way to celebrate the Day of The Dead. I highly recommend it!

Dia de los Muertos Tour

I did the day-long Day of the Dead tour. This tour took our group to a couple of famous cemeteries in Mexico City that I would not otherwise feel comfortable visiting alone. We also went to Xochimilco. The tour was very relaxed and we had a lot of time to do as we wished. The transportation was comfortable and our guide, Paco, was awesome. Lunch was included and was very filling. Overall, I am so glad that I was able to see parts of the city that I would not have been able to otherwise. I loved being able to participate in the Dia de los Muertos activities like a Mexican, and I highly recommend this tour for others.
