I have to admit- I was really looking forward to planning this for my honeymoon. It EXCEEDED expectations. The hosts were so knowledgeable about lucha culture- taught you the chants and a little history. The little bar you go to before hand was great to get to know others in your group. I felt very safe and the hairs made sure to translate to vendors when necessary. Must recommend!

After meeting Arturo at the meeting spot. He immediately dived into the history of Lucha Libre. So much information and history that got me excited for what was ahead. Since 10+ others canceled, I had a solo tour. The mezcal tasting accompanied with the best guacamole was a great precursor to the main event. Once we reached Arena Mexico, the crowds had gathered. Our seats were so close you could feel the slams. I smiled the entire time and had a great time. Would highly recommend.

Raphael was the best! He was right on time for both the initial meet up location and after the event (even in a huge crowd of people/cars). He was very polite and had a great attitude. He had a nice sense of humor and was a good sport as he guided us to the arena and to a great taco spot popular with locals. He drove us promptly and safely the entire time and had some great recommendations for us regarding night life. All around, Raphael was very professional.

I thoroughly enjoyed this experience and am so glad that I did it! I was travelling solo so was a little concerned initially about feeling safe etc. I did not need to worry as it worked out perfectly! I was collected from my hotel at the notified time and taken to the venue. The wrestling was so much fun and the crowd really gets into the vibe of things. I highly recommend! It was a great night for my first night in Mexico City especially as I didn’t have to think about where to go, how I was going to get there and how I would get back to the hotel. The logistics were all taken care of for me.
