The Monkey Experience - Worth every moment! Gina Boncan-Francisco

Aug 17-21, 2023 Our Guadalupe trip was awesome!! Our tour guide Are was most polite, knowledgeable and most patient. We were able to visit many churches aside from the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe which turned out to be very emotional. The boat tour at the canals was truly special and fun. We learned much of the Mexican traditions, history and culture. Hotel Geneve was extraordinarily beautiful. The rooms were a good size, beds very comfortable and service excellent. Meals - awesome especially the tacos in the street food tour. I finished all 5 of them! Hotel Location - very good! You go down to eat and shop...very convenient and safe. Tour Experience - enjoyable to the max. I think going to the cultural show was great! This should be part of the itinerary or a similar one at least. Are, our guide went out of his way to have a church opened for us to see. That was super of him to ask the priest. Monkey Exprerience accommodated all our reasonable requests being 4 ladies of 70+ years old. We asked to pace our tours and they happily accommodated us. Paco Reyes picked us up at the airport upon arrival. He gave us a very warm reception and was very respectful and helpful. He also bade us farewell upon departure. Both Are and Paco were very personable and always smiling. We 4 ladies had so much fun on this tour!! I give The monkey experience a 10! Thank you for the awesome experience!!

Viva Mexico!

Every day was a great day! We thoroughly enjoyed our daily tours. Ari, our tour guide was very knowledgeable in introducing us to your very rich Mexican culture. He was also very prompt in our schedule and in addition was so willing to help and be our protector in every way as in 4 senior (70+) ladies still very active. We have become very close to him and will remember him when we think of our Guadalupe trip. Mexico is so rich in culture, fine art, language and food. It was an eye opener and completely changed my view of Mexico. I have been to Italy, France, Spain but Mexico City ranks as a must city to visit much like in the grand cities of Europe and to see its golden age of Spanish influence and its prehistory rich culture of early Mexico. I encourage you all and will let my friends and relatives know and to use your agency for their Mexico City trip. UNFORGETABLE, EXCITING, INFORMATIVE AND MEMORABLE. I have been home for 2 days and want to go back and explore more. Love love love Mexico City. Thank you, Thank you and Thank you very much.... The Monkey Experience. Viva Mexico.

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.

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!
