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

Journeys is a great way to experience this world class city. They take the stress away and maximize your travel experience. We toured with them 3 of our 4 days for and it couldn't have worked out better. Mojdeh, Alvaro, David and Fernando are warm, knowledgeable, professional and proud to share their city. They are worth every penny! Thanks to... More

Look no further; simply email Mojdeh now and embark on an extraordinary travel experience. I cannot overstate how memorable Mojdeh and Sergio made our family holiday. Prior to leaving, Mojdeh is in constant communication with you to understand your goals for the trip, suggest multiple options for your experience, and prepare you for travel to Mexico City. During your stay,... More

We have just returned from Mexico City. This is the first time that I have ever felt compelled to write a review such as this … but after our experience of the past week I feel a duty to extend my family’s appreciation to Trip Advisor in general and specifically to Mojdeh and Sergio of “Beyond the Surface Tours” ....

My family and I just returned from Mexico City, after spending two wonderful days with guides from this company. Both Alvaro (tour of the pyramids) and Fernando (tour of the historical center) were so informative! We learned so much about the history of Mexico and the development of each area we visited. I was, in fact, amazed at how much... More

Mojdeh is too modest in describing her "other kind of tour". She is a foreigner with the most intriguing background imaginable, a stranger who has fallen in love with her strange land and made her life there. I had never heard of Mojdeh or her company until I perused TripAdvisor a few weeks ago and booked a tour of the... More

I took two tours with Journeys and was extremely happy with both - one with David (Anthropology Museum, sites in the Centro) and one with Alvaro (Coyoacan and UNAM). Especially with the latter trip, I knew I wouldn't have been able to do so much on my own. My guides were prompt, extremely knowledgeable, and very interesting to talk to... More

My spouse and I visited Mexico City in March, 2014. We had a marvelous time and Mojdeh's tours and assistance were an essential part of that excitement. She was very responsive to my last-minute requests and helped us throughout our stay. Her guides are excellent and she makes the entire process run as smooth as can be, even stopping by... More

Journeys Beyond the Surface gave us three outstanding tours that went beyond the standard lines about the main attractions in Mexico City. They oriented us to the public transportation system so we could be independent on non tour days and provided very friendly guides. To go to the Archaeology Museum and give us a sense of Mexico City's history, David,... More

My wife and I decided to spend our 20th wedding anniversary in Mexico City. While numerous folks asked us why we didn't we go to the beach instead, for my wife and I, Mexico City with its rich history, art, and culture was our choice! It was my second time using Journeys Beyond the Surface, and my first experience was... More
