Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Official Seeighting Tour in Mexico City since 2000 Hop on - Hop Off Four circuits with only ticket. Centro Histórico, Sur, Polanco Chapultepec and Basilica
Reviewed 8 September 2018 via mobile

We were told each circuit would be roughly 1 hour so we embarked on the city one to change to the coyoatan circuit, and then have lunch. The change included 1 hours wait. The staff had no idea  when next bus would arrive. After 3 hours on the Coyoatan bus we were in Coyoatan so we left for late lunch. After that the 3rd bus back to change to city circuit. All in all we spent 6,5 hours, excluding exchange waiting time, on a 2 hour trip.

Selling person lied about length

No one had any idea on when next bus would arrive

WiFi did not work

No water on the bus

The Coyoatan tour spends a lot of time back and forth.

I would NEVER recommend this to anyone.

Not bad but should be much better. Very slow (because of the constant heavy traffic), not all stops are marked (this added a half hour to our journey as we couldn’t find our hop on position), they don’t always stop at the designated hop on/off position (this resulted in us missing our departure stop and requiring us to walk back a considerable distance to our hotel), the location descriptions (over the head phones) are few.

It was a great trip to get knowing better Mexico City in a safe way. You won't waste your time guessing. If you like a place, you just drop off, stay there and when you are ready, you just go back to the bus!!!

I wasn't so very impressed with this tour bus. I was a little disappointed from the beginning that it was long than 20 mins wait from the start. Most buses I've been on before will stop a short amount of time then continue. It's also disappointing that if you purchase a ticket online you have to take it to one of three points. These buses have many stops across the 4 circuits and could save travelers a lot of time by accepting these tickets on the bus. Not as expensive as some hop on hop off tours, but I'd try something different next time.

Granted the traffic is not the greatest in Mexico City but for the price you have to pay is like you own shared UBER ride on a city bus. Some walking may be needed but just follow the map and you can transfer to different lines to visit other parts of the cities historical sites. Again price is decent to me and I’m not sure what they could do better to get better. The bus has WiFi and they are friendly. Maybe serve beer. It’s a thought
