Thank you, Hector, for four wonderful tours. We have taken several tours previously, but have never met a guide as prompt, informative, charming, and willing to adapt a tour to our needs and interests. Our walking tour of the city provided extensive information about the history, art, and architecture of the city, as well as advice about restaurants and other... More

A year ago my wife and I engaged Hector to provide us with two tours in Mexico City. When we returned this year, we asked Hector to provide us with three days of tours. Hector is the best of the best. For adults who want to understand the history and culture of a place, Hector cannot be beat. He is... More

My husband and I recently visited Mexico City and hired Hector as our Tour Guide for a few of the days. He catered our itinerary based on what we wanted (and did not want) to see. He made sure to take extra time at places we enjoyed and also could tell if we were ready to move on. We ALWAYS... More

First up was the downtown Centro Historico area tour. As we walked the streets, plazas and museums of this amazing city, Hector surprised me by his wealth... More

My friends and I just recently visited Day Effay and we had a wonderful time. Our main attraction to MCity was because of the 3 restaurants in the World's Top 50. Hector opened our eyes to the history/culture/people of his great City. Hector was always a professional yet personable to a limit with all of us. I felt very comfortable... More

We booked a private tour of Mexico City for our ~10 hour layover. Hector met us at the airport promptly at 6:30 am and helped us navigate our way to the center of the city. From there, we did a short walking tour, along with rides on a city bus and the subway. He chose an excellent spot for us... More

Spent a few days with Hector and did the city tour, Coyoacan and San Angel neighborhood tour and Teotihucan Pyramids tour. Not only was Hector highly responsive, he was friendly, responsible, knowledgeable and great was his communication. We had a great time with him.
