I am extremely happy with Alvaro Arestegui and the guided tour in Mexico City. First, Alvaro is an exceptional guide--very pleasant, polite, and extraordinarily comfortable to travel with. His style is very conversational and you almost feel as if you are hearing the stories of famous people's lives from someone who was their friend. His vast knowledge and ability to... More

I am so happy I worked with Mojdah on our amazing (but short) trip to Mx City. She helped me weeks ahead of time to plan a great itinerary and was so quick to respond to my emails. She gave great suggestions and tips for sights and restaurants. I was so appreciative of her expert guidance. My husband and 2... More

First- I should say we almost never take tours, but we spent a very full day with David, who I can not recommend highly enough!! He was the perfect tour guide. David picked us up promptly at our hotel. We told him what we would like to try and cover then he set the day to maximize our time. His... More

My guide Alvaro picked me up right on time from my apartment, before a day of exploring the architecture, markets and cuisine of Mexico City. He was great company, very knowledgeable, and catered his tour so closely to my interests that I felt like I learnt much more from the tour than I could possibly have read on any guidebook... More

We really enjoyed our 3 day tours with David. He was very knowledgable and yet kept my 10 & 11 year old sons entertained. Everything was customized to meet our needs (which can be great with kids this age!) I'm so grateful that we found this company.

The tour was customized to our interests and Julieta was wonderful. She knows EVERYTHING about Mexico City history, art and culture. She kept it light and interesting and we never felt rushed. The tour even accommodated a pick up in the Santa Fe area. I would use this company again in a heartbeat

David was our tour guide for the day. Upon picking us up we felt very comfortable. David's car was spotless, he was spiffy, and he made us feel like he wanted to be with us. His passion about his job and Mexico City is contagious. Everything was relevant and I have a better understanding of Mexico City and it's history.... More

We had David for the day. He arrived on time, which was just the start of a terrific day. His depth of knowledge of Mexico and Mexico City easily survived all our questions and diversions. He was flexible as we changed our minds about our desired sights and contributed greatly to our enjoyment of the day, right down to a... More

We booked two tours through this organization after doing much research on line to find the best option. The first tour was a day tour within the city which was really amazing and provided a nice lens to see what would otherwise have been a totally overwhelming experience. The second tour was a day trip outside of the city to... More

I had limited time in Mexico City and wanted a tour that would show me the main sights as well as the real city. Our guide Alvaro was extremely knowledgable and gave us great insight into the architecture, history and culture of Mexico City. He asked us how we would like to spend our time and personalized the tour just... More
