My husband and I used Mojdeh at Journeys Beyond the Surface a couple years ago for our first trip to Mexico City and found her services to be so invaluable that we consulted with her again for our second trip that we took with some friends this past New Year's Eve. Once again, Mojdeh's advice saved us so much time... More

I began looking for tours weeks before our trip to Mexico City. Our family consisted of my active 82 year old mother, three boys ages 10, 10 and 8 and my wife and me. We booked three full days with Mojdeh via many emails. She was very responsive before , during and after the trip. Each day we were picked... More

We were met by Alvaro outside our hotel. Within 10minutes of being in his company we felt very comfortable and relaxed. What a great guy. Alvaro spoke very good English and didn't bombard us at all as some guides do. His explanations of the many many places of interest in the city centre were really good. The art centre we... More

The first one was a tour of Mexico City, I got to see the cathedral, murals, Aztec... More

We organized two tours with Journeys Beyond the Surface, just a few weeks before our trip to Mexico City. The holiday season is busy, but Mojdeh was wonderful in arranging our tours and providing great recommendations for the rest of our time. First we visited Teotihuacan with Fernando Ledezma on Monday, when most of the museums in the city are... More

Mojdeh was thoughtful and insightful not only about our requests and interests in arranging tours, she was more than helpful in advising us about... More

From the very beginning, Mojdeh (the owner) was professional, helpful, and prompt. She answered all emails quickly, and she provided excellent advice in organizing and scheduling a tour for my mom and me. I told her what we were interested in seeing, and her recommendations were superb. I also told her mom has a health condition, and she was more... More

I arranged for this tour two months in advance of my trip. The did a great job of keeping in contact and asking me for more specific information of what I wanted and were not shy about telling me if some things were far away or would take too much time. Perfect. My guide, Alvaro, met me at my hotel... More

We had an eight hour layover in Mexico City and decided to do a city tour with Journey Beyond the Surface. Our guide Sergio met us at the airport, spent 6 hours showing us the best of Mexico City and then drove us back right in time for our connecting flight. Thank you Sergio for the tour and thank you...
