So you say you're the kind of traveler who would never take a tour bus.
I know. Me too.
But Mexico City's Turibus is different because it gives you a sense of the capital's scope that's really impossible to experience in any other way. Take a ride on the Turibus at the beginning of your visit to Mexico City and you'll have a much better idea about how to delve into the city and get beneath its surface.
The Turibus offers several different routes and even tours pegged to particular themes (fancy a night-time tour of the capital's cantinas?), each at a very affordable price.
Even if you're insistent that you're not the kind of traveler who would ever join a group on a city tour by bus, the Turibus offers first-time visitors the best opportunity to get Mexico City's lay of the land.
And since the audio options for the tour include a Spanish recording, you can learn about the city's sights in the language that describes them best. So pop in those earbuds and kick back on the upper deck of the double-decker bus without shame: you're not just another tourist; you're here to perfect your Spanish.
