Spend half the day with one of our friendly hosts absorbing the colorful energy of Mexico City as you hit the streets and explore together. Explore a neighborhood like Coyoacán (named after the wily coyote), where you can see Frida Kahlo’s old house, La Casa Azul (The Blue House) or take to Zócalo, the city’s main public square and one of the largest of its kind in the world? The remnants of Mexico City's ancient past are still visible and your host will show you some ruins from this time period as well as the other wonders of the city. Within 24 hours after booking you'll receive a short questionnaire about your personality and interests. Based on your responses, you'll be assigned a like-minded host. Your host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary to help you discover what makes the city unique. You will also agree on a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience, you can always change your mind about what you want to do.

Our guide Roberto was great. You could really see a natural love of being with people. We hit all the major city centre locations but the highlight for us was the organic Mexican food restaurant he took us to. Would highly recommend.
