Alexis was great and very knowledgeable not only about lucha libre but other forms of wrestling around the world. He is clearly passionate and made a great host for the matches, explaining the competitors, structure, and scoring throughout the match.

We are so glad we jumped on this tour and they could accommodate us last minute. It was fantastic! The hosts were like family, the explanation and passion of Lucha Libre shown through and we did have a super fun upbeat crew to go with so that is a double blessing! Tacos were tasty and even a souvenir! Don’t miss out on this experience it was just so much fun and we were very very well taken care of! Like I said like family!

Absolutely fun and a great experience!!! Highly recommended. Not only can you watch a totally unique wrestling experience and a massive arena (with great seats) but you get to have a fascinating history of Lucia Libre as explained by the wonderfully knowledgeable Alexis. If you go to Lucha Libre definitely go with Alexis, he will answer any question and is a true fan and historian. Such a good time. Alexis is a super friendly and bright guy. He absolutely cared for you the whole time and was extremely attentive to each individual and the group.

Alexis a fantastic host with a true passion and knowledge of Lucha Libra. Even if you're not a fan of the sport, Alexis's love of it is infectious. Within the first hour, we were given a concise, yet brief history of Lucha Libre, it's importance in Mexican culture and why he himself became a fan at such an early age. Bu the time we arrived at the stadium, everyone in our group was absolutely charged to see the matches. We couldn't help but feeling truly apart of the local vide and audience! It was a great way to spend an afternoon!
