I rated the tour Good rather than Very Good because the English language tour requires more than just a basic level of English. This wasn't a problem for me; Tourists with only a basic knowledge of English are unlikely to understand everything. Otherwise, the tour fully met my expectations, it was very informative and gave a good insight into Mexican history up to modern times. The tour guide Andres was always able to answer the additional questions asked in detail. For this I give a "1".
