An easy and interesting way to see the colonial zone. With the uneven pavement and the heat it is not an easy area to discover walking and the jnformation provided on the trip is very clear. Very friendly employees!

It's a lot of fun to walk the old streets of this area, but having an open air train ride down practically every street is awesome. The auditory guide presents facts you never knew as you see the oldest buildings in the western hemisphere. Highly...More

Very cheap price and very informative. Easy to find right in the main square of Zona Colonial. Very helpful way to orient yourself on the area.

At first we got on the Chu Chu for the fun of it but actually for sightseeing it proved to be a good choice.

I found the best place to purchase lovely rings, bracelets, etc was near the market square from the street vendors. Street vendors are licensed and are easily identifiable.

You can take a Taxi cab, Uber is the best option. It is about 15 minutes drive. The ticket office is just where the train departs.. Hope it helps...
