Highly recommend this intimate small-group art tour led by Violeta, who provided a wealth of information on the murals in 3 locations. You could tell how much Violeta enjoyed sharing with others her deep knowledge of Mexican history. To ensure we had the best experience she even went beyond the 2.5-hour typical duration of the tour.

This was an excellent tour by Miguel who speaks excellent english and is so well informed about this complex mix of history, politics, culture and the muralists of Mexico. This tour includes buildings often overlooked and even if I walked in, I wouldn't have known where to go.

These murals are so beautiful and full of so many details as they purport to educate an illiterate population about their history from pre-Columbian to the post revolutionary times of the 1920's on. In addition, they purport to create a national identity so these are big undertakings for the artists and result in complex murals.
Miguel helped us understand them more deeply as he described the history and politics of the time.

The tour was fascinating and enjoyable...not dry or boring.

I highly recommend this to anyone interested in Mexico's muralists.

One of the best art tours I've experienced. Vladimir was well versed in the artists, as well as the political climate they were working in. His knowledge of Mexican history was deep, and his presentation was clear and well thought out.
