Très bon! Je ne parle qu'un peu français mais j'ai bien compris ce qui a été dit (et ce quartier parle de lui-même dans toutes les langues). J'espère plus de tournées en français pour pouvoir améliorer les miennes. Conseil de pro: si vous avez Google Translate sur votre portable pendant la visite, il transcrira en anglais pour toutes les phrases que vous ne comprenez pas.

Haven't been to Mexico City in 50 years so it was great to have a tour of the main square. Will travel again with Ernie for more views of the city.

This was my first experience with Heygo, I only popped into the tour for about 5 minutes, to test the experience, the interface, the response time on my slow internet. I had been to Mexico City a few times and the main square. I found Ernie's tour quite good and will sign up again sometime. Thank you!

Ernie was very nice and friendly but he kept on forgetting the names of places. Also the quality of the film was not good : 90% of the time it was hard to watch as it was jumpy or blurred ....maybe due to a poor signal from Mexico to Canada or.....?? Also it was difficult to figure out how to send a post card. Due to the blurred film/tour I left early.
