Sprawling and polluted it may be, but Mexico City’s blending of Aztec temples and colonial baroque churches with old café-filled neighbourhoods and markets selling everything from antiques to voodoo paraphernalia make it one of North America’s most colourful cities. With excellent attractions such as the Frida Kahlo Museum and some of Latin America’s grandest plazas, Mexico City is a city break destination in its own right as well as a starting point for exploring Mexico’s regions further.

Your tour includes one shot of tequila and a Mexican wrestling mask to take home as a souvenir. Your tour starts with pickup from your hotel in Mexico City and a drive to the arena.
