The Plaza de la Constitución, informally known as El Zócalo, is the main square of Mexico City. Together with the surrounding streets, it occupies an almost rectangular surface of approximately 46 800 m² (195 m x 240 m). It was named in honor of the Constitution of Cadiz promulgated in 1812. This is the second largest square in the world and the first among the Spanish-speaking countries. 1 The Zócalo is located in the heart of the area known as the Historic Center of Mexico City, in the Cuauhtémoc delegation. Its location was chosen by the Spanish conquistadors to be established in an area close to what was previously the political and religious center of Mexico-Tenochtitlan, capital of the Mexicas.

National Palace (Palacio Nacional)
Its construction began in 1522, as the second private residence of Hernán Cortés, on top of a part of the huey tlatoani Moctezuma Xocoyotzin palace. Then it was acquired by the crown and intended as the seat of the Viceroys of New Spain, and most of the colonial institutions. During that period it suffered a great fire and was semidemolido in 1692, later it was reconstructed by the viceroyal authorities. Once the Independence of Mexico was consummated, it was the seat of the executive, legislative and judicial powers of the different republican and monarchical regimes of the country during most of the 19th century; it was even the personal residence of all the rulers between 1822 and 1884; from then on, it remained as presidential office until 1968, partially recovering this function in 2012, and completely in 2018.

Great Museum Tour and Overview of Mexico City
, Apr 2021
We spent three days with Jose and this was a perfect first day. The Museum of Anthropology is massive and you could easily spend a day there. If you want to learn about the Mesoamerican people’s from the Big Bang to yesterday, and view some of their most iconic artifacts, this is the place. It ranks among the beat museums in the world for goos reason. Don’t miss this museum even if you are coming to Mexico City to drink MeZcal and party. Jose walked us through the first half (through the Mayans) and gave us an excellent briefing on the various cultures in ancient Mexico. The Aztec and Mayan rooms are stunning. We walked through Chapultepec park but sadly the castle was closed due to Covid. We grabbed a delicious lunch at a taco place Jose recommended and then walked through the historic district. The church was open and we could see some of Temple Mayor but that Museum was closed. Fascinating day with an amazing guide.
Great First Timer Tour
, Apr 2021
This is a great tour for any first time visitor to Mexico City. It gives you a quick taste of many different attractions and areas of this vast city. Once again Carlos did not disappoint. He's a great tour guide, and even though somethings were still closed, I still feel like I saw a lot and really got a feel for the city and what I'd like to spend more time doing on my next trip to CDMX.

This was a good tour. I would have preferred some time in Zona Rosa. This tour did not include that.
Great tour!
