Overall this was a fantastic tour. We did two days, one around the city and the other to the pyramids. Each day we had a different guide, Roberto and David. Both I'd highly recommend. For never being to Mexico City before my friends and I had a great time, saw a lot and ate a lot of good food. When... More

We loved our tour by Alvaro! I reached out to Moshde to set up a tour for my fiancé and I, and she was fantastic to work with. She was very professional, highly responsive, and super flexible. Everything was set up quickly, and Alvaro was a great tour guide. We like touching on the touristy areas, then getting off the... More

This was our second time using Journeys Beyond the Surface, and we requested Alvaro again for a tour of the central city and the Alameda. Alvaro's knowledge of art, history and politics is amazing, and my wife has a PhD in history with a specialization in colonial Latin America, so she is hard to impress. We enjoyed our time with...

I had never been to Mexico (I don't think Cozumel counts), so when the opportunity presented itself to spend three days in the capitol, I began researching what was available there to see. It turned out to be an amazing amount. Being a painter myself, I decided to focus on the two most famous Mexican painters I knew. I contacted... More

A couple of weeks before leaving for Mexico City, I emailed and Mojdeh replied promptly and over a couple of email exchanges we'd booked a full day (out of the city) to see Villa de Guadaupe + Teotihuacan & also Plaza de las tres culturas as it was enroute. We arranged this for a Monday as the city museums are... More

Mojdeh worked closely with me in planning the perfect and hassle-free visit of Mexico City. I traveled with my 80-year old mother and our guide Sergio made sure that we were comfortable throughout our journey. I gave Mojdeh a list of the places we wanted to visit and she suggested an itinerary that would cover what we wanted to see.... More

Dear Pedro, I do indeed pay taxes, but to the US government. I am a US citizen residing in Mexico, and as such, report my income to the US. Some of my guides are licensed, and some are not. I have found that being licensed is no guarantee of being an excellent guide who gives the kind of service we... More

We took two different tours with guides provided by Journeys Beyond the Surface. We had Mojdeh's assistance before we left designing our tours. Because Mexico City is so enormous and the number of things to see and do there so overwhelming, her help was invaluable. Our guides were wonderful - incredibly well-versed in the history, architecture and culture of the... More
