The architecture itself is impressive and detailed. The murals by Diego add that lavish touch to the walls and ceilings. Everything is well laid out, making for an easy tour. One of the main site at the Zocalo, don't miss it.

Went to the National Palace on my last day in town- the Diego Rivera murals are worth the trip, especially the huge mural found at the staircase (both levels). Be alert as you walk inside, as to the right there is the entrance to a...More
Sometimes it seems difficult to visit the National Palace to see the Diego Rivera murals, but it is well worth it. Hand over your passport -because you will get it back and walk up the stairs to feast on the extraordinary murals completed 1929-1945. The...More

The beating heart of the city lies within Centro Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit the wide variety of markets and plazas where any
vintage item, handicrafts and jewelry characteristic of each state in Mexico can be found on Sundays. Admire majestic views of the city from the Monumento a la Revolución and Torre Latinoamericana, and round out the experience with restaurants of all cuisines nearby.

No reservations are required.........if planning a visit, would recommend during the week and avoid busy weekends (holidays). You must leave your passport with one of the security guards and pick it up at the end of the tour. Not to worry they are very organized. Enjoy!

I didn't see any, we had our own guide, there were people milling around us because they wanted to hear what our guide was telling us. try looking on the website, it should tell you if there are "official" guides for hire. But your smart to inquire, the murals are really amazing and the story behind them makes them so. It would be a shame to not know what your looking at. There must be something on the net that has the background. Safe travels, you will love Mexico!
