We walked around this theater without a guide and loved to see the beauty of it. You can tell it was built a very long time ago and can appreciate the architecture.

We enjoyed the tour and love the architecture and deco! The guide was a little too much, though it was fun.

This opera house is beyond amazing. Much of it has been kept in original condition. The wood floors and chairs are still originals but they did replace the leather on the chairs. Make sure that you have a guide, or read up on the history...More

A historic place to visit. A must in Guanajuato. If this theatre is amazing by the outside, wait for the inside. Very recommended.

The costumes and dancers were unique Unlike anything I've ever seen. Crowds gathered around and are encouraged to participate in the fun. Roasted corn is a little but delightful distraction. We had a terrific time and we are all different ages 12-73 years old .
