La Ruta Del Tranvia (tour Operator) - Tour Operator Guadalajara - Mexico

This 2.5-hour historic tour animated by actors with large puppets traces the routes of the old mule-drawn and electric trams ("tranvia") that ran in Guadalajara from the late 19th century to 1944. The van leaves from the suburb of Zapopan from La Casa del Mezquite, a colonial mansion converted into a cultural center heavy on history. Stops are made at several points of interest, including the Panteón de Santa Paula (now the Belen Cemetery), which is infamous for the numerous ghost stories associated with different graves.

In Spanish.

Tours start at 8 p.m. Monday, but other times can be arranged for groups of 10+.

Cost: 100 pesos per adult; 60 pesos per child.
