For about $5 a day for a senior, you can spend all day hopping on and off four tour routes this company provides in a double decker bus. The four areas are Zapopan, Tonala, Guadalajara City and Tlaquepaque. ALL were great, so do them all! A multi-lingual narrative is provide, pointing out sites and sharing history along the way.

We took this bus twice during our stay and found it was a very good value for getting around and seeing the city. They were on time, had English translation and the staff was courteous.

This was a great bargain and a good way to learn about the Guadalajara area. Being able to get on/off was a good plus and the bus and tours were great. Bring along your own headphones to hear the translated (and informative) audio guide as the bus moves through it's route.

This was the first time I rode a double decker bus. I enjoyed viewing the city from the top of the bus. Other then watching out for tall tree branches hitting you, for 110 pesos this hop on and hop off experience was great value. The bus tour started from Guadalajara, then a 30 minutes ride to the town of... More

We travelled around and about on the Tapatio bus on two different days, once to go to Tonola and Tlaquepaque and another just to see the sights. Riding on the top floor of a double-decker bus is not only fun, but hopping on and off is an enjoyable way to spend a leisurely day. The price is more than reasonable,... More

There is one charge (120 pesos) for all four tours. We went on two of the four tours - Zapopan and Guadalajara. Unfortunately, for some reason, the centre of Zapopan was sealed off so we really didn't see much. In addition there was no English commentary. The Guadalajara tour was much better with an English commentary. We went on the... More

Overall, professional tourism hasn't arrived in Guadalajara--which in many ways is not a bad thing. When it comes to this tour, though, they need to up their game. It was hard to get clear information from anyone--for example, when we boarded the bus in Tlaquepaque this morning, there was no way to know that the only way to get a... More

A "must" if you are going to visit Guadalajara! Thecity tour takes in 13 high points to see in the city. English and Spanish, you will learn a lot about this historic city in only 1 1/2 hours. Two other tours include Tlaquepaque, Tonala and Zapopan. Very low price and even lower for seniors!

There is 4 differents roads to do and it take all day long if you want to do all of them. But it's a good way to find what to realy do on the next day. You will not learn a lot of things from the audio but it's ok. Pro: - cheap Cons: - messy direction ( what bus... More

Not an overly impressive version of the "hop on hop off" concept of tours. I will admit it was a pleasant and relativly inexpensive way to get around the city and see the sites. Don't count on the audio portion of the tour as it was inconsistent. Staff are minimally helpful.
