Mexico City, while thrilling, can also be incredibly overwhelming, especially for the first-time visitor. It's tough to know where to dive in: how can you experience the best that the city has to offer when there's just so much from which to choose?
That's where the Turibus comes in. Even if you're an avowed anti-tour bus type of traveler, trust us: you won't regret climbing on this double-decker bus and taking a turn around Mexico's vast, chaotic capital. In fact, the capital is so big, you can choose from among four different Turibus tours, each one focusing on the highlights of a particular area of the city (say, Frida Kahlo's and Diego Rivera's Coyoacán neighborhood and other sights in the south of the city). There's even a night tour. Whichever one you choose, you can hop off and on as often as you'd like.
Taking the Turibus at the beginning of your visit can help you get the lay of the land, leaving you with a more focused list of neighborhoods and attractions where you'd like to spend more time.
