Mexico's open air-tour will shed light on the country's greatest corruption hotspots and stories. The Corruptour will not stop at popular tourists' destination like El Malecon or the Great Pyramid of Cholula, but rather in landmarks such as the monument dedicated to the students of Ayotzinapa who disappeared in 2014 among many others.

Volunteer guide Tania Sanchez told CBS News, "The goal is to awaken Mexicans' consciousness about the problem of corruption, which is so serious and seems to be getting more and more expansive." She added that the experience is to inform and educate people the practices of corruption while at the same time making it fun.

Though the Corruptour has been operating since 2014, it was only a week that its promotion for corruption has become more rampant when they launched new rides for about twice on a Sunday and for free. Private donors have been chipping in an initial of $5,000 to have the project realized.

The tour is offered for an hour and thirty minutes and guides encourage the guests to share stories of graft and how to curb it on their own. The passengers of the Corruptour bus will be inviting passersby to shout "No more corruption," along the way.

Telesur TV reported Former Executive Secretary of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, Emilio álvarez Icaza as saying: "There are so many cases of corruption that it was difficult to choose only ten stops ... The political class does not get tired of stealing and this is a way of displaying, pointing and educating people."

Among the stops, the guides will be showing are the famous White House Mansion by President Peña Nieto and his wife, monument for the disappeared students, Social Security Institute, and the national Senate. One can reserve a seat at the Corruptor for a tour and talk about graft.

Because of its high demand, as of writing, the next free seats will be made available on April 2. This is not the first time programs similar to this have been roaming around cities. Prague, London, and Brazil also hold the same tours.
