I took the tourist bus after being in Mexico City for a week for business and not feeling like I had seen any of the city. Having limited time I thought the bus would give me a quick view of the city with useful information. Despite the website advising that buses would arrive every 20 minutes, I waited nearly an...

The Turibus goes a lot of places and is reasonably priced ($10 CDN). They probably can't charge more because you can't really avail of its entire service. Traffic in Mexico City is so much that one of the loops takes 3.5 hours, and that is without actually hopping off. There is a short (on the map) loop to the basilica... More

1. Bring sunscreen, water, and a snack. It can take a VERY long time for the bus to get to where you want and unless you know exactly where you're going to eat at, you might get stuck on there longer than you'd anticipated. There are vendors at a lot of the stops selling hats, chips, mangos, etc but that's... More

We had a particularly difficult experience. We started on the central "red bus" route bue were advised to change to a green route to explore other attractions. We did not realise (communication was difficult) that there was a wait of >1 hour at the changeover. The second bus then broke down and there was little information about onward arrangements. Several... More

One of the worst bus tours I have ever been on. It is slow and boring. They do not announce the stops so you don't know where you are. The map should show the streets so if you want to get off you know where the next stop is. You can ride 4 areas of the city for one price,... More

This tour company offers information in 8 languages. You may ride any or all of the routes that travel through Mexico City. And, you're given the opportunity to get off at various venues to visit the sights. Then, get back on for more. We enjoyed this tour company and recommend it for your visit to Mexico City.

We spent one day using Turibus for a better look at Mexico City, and we found it to be a good value. Turibus has four routes, and you can switch between them at certain stops. We started with the Historical Central route and saw all of the sights in the area of our hotel, plus we went as far as... More

I thought this was rather expensive. It was lovely sitting on the top deck looking out. However, the buses did not come reliably every 15 minutes and the audio guides were not working. Not worth the 170 pesos when you consider how cheap taxis and public transport is.

This is a cool and cheap way to go around the city and to another places. I highly recommend to take the normal route (165 Mxn at August 2016) you can save the money of many little rides going from The downtown to the Chapultepec area. But... Please check the weather because if you go in a rainy day in... More
