Mexico City, Mexico
NileGuide Expert tip:
During peak periods, buses come by every 15 minutes but every 30-40 during slow season, so check their schedule.
Modeled after the London double-decker buses, the Turibus is a great way to get around Mexico City and enjoy the major attractions. There are two routes, one covers Reforma Avenue, all the major museums and downtown. The second route covers the southern part of the city.
You can get on and off as many times as you want during the day and rates are affordable, between $10 and $14, depending on the day of the week. The top deck is open and you have a 360 degree view, the cost includes a pre-recorded guide available in six languages, there are no bathrooms on the bus and it is recommended that you take precautions against the sun.
There is also an evening ride, but I would only recommend it if you have no intention of getting off and just want to experience what the city is at night. Given that museums and shops are closed, there is no point in getting off anyway. Remember that evenings in Mexico are chilly, even in the summer so take a light jacket o sweater and also keep in mind that April through September is the rainy season.
