          Great time seeing these beautiful structures
          Amazing trip! Our tour guide was great throughout the whole day. Would definitely recommend it to anyone. The view at the rooftop lunch overlooking the site was breathtaking

          Very Good tour
          The pyramids were absolutely amazing and this tour made the adventure very easy and pleasant. Our guide Roberto was a pleasure to be with—he guided us assuredly and had an easy laugh. The very minor downside was his slight language limitation, but he showed us areas around Teotihuacan that we would have missed had he not guided us. It was definitely a luxury to have a private tour (especially with agile, patient driver Agustin), but it was worth the expense. My husband and I would recommend!!!

          Great tour with knowledgeable guide
          This was an excellent private tour. We had Bruno as the the tour guide and Arturo as the driver, and they provided two excellent days of touring. (We also did the Xochimilco/Frida Kahlo tour with them the following day.) Bruno is very knowledgeable about history, and he did a great job explaining the sites that we visited. Of course the ruins and basilica were stunning, but we also enjoyed learning about the Plaza de las Tres Culturas and the Tlatelolco massacre of 1968. My son, a recent college graduate in history, talked non-stop with Bruno about history and archeology. We also had some great discussions about politics, religion, art, and food. This tour was awesome because we never felt rushed or pressured to move to the next site. In my opinion, it's worth the extra money to have the personalized attention and detailed information, and I would highly recommend this tour and this tour group. (The only thing I would skip is the lunch-it's not particularly tasty in comparison to all the other amazing food you can experience in Mexico.)

          Great for big groups.
          Ramon, our tour guide, was great! Transportation in Mexico City is so unreliable, Ramon and his driver were at our pickup location on time. They were very patient with us and accommodating. Ramon is very knowledgeable, he answered all of our questions. Great people, great tour. 5 out of 5! Thank you Ramon!

          Excellent! You won’t regret booking this one.
          This was one of the best tours we have ever taken. Our tour guide, Ramon, made the entire trip so meaningful and memorable. He spoke excellent English, had tremendous knowledge, and seemed to enjoy responding to our questions. The driver was also very pleasant and the car was quite comfortable with excellent air conditioning in the back seat, which we needed due to the hot day. Lunch, which was included, was very good with great service. The sights themselves were impressive and historically important. Can’t say enough good things about this tour!

          Enjoyed CDMX
          Every thing went exactly as advertised. Our guide was very pleasant, excellent English language. His knowledge of the history of Mexico was great. Lunch was good and plentiful. The time spent with the guide for the handicraft was pleasant and pressure to buy was minimal.

          Great way to explore Teotihuacan
          Carlos was our guide and Antonio was our driver. Both of them took excellent care of us. Carlos shared a lot of information with us, answered our questions and was very personable. We felt very comfortable with both gentlemen and they even helped us by taking us to an ATM to get some pesos. Carlos had a lot of opinions about several things and we enjoyed hearing all of them. The vehicle was very comfortable Teotihuacan and the Shrine of Guadalupe are must do in Mexico City and this is an excellent tour to take you there

          Fantastic private tour!
          This was one of the best tours we have taken - such a great day. It was nice to comfortably ride in an air conditioned car and be able to go at our own pace. Our guide Ramon was full of information. We enjoyed discussing the history of Mexico with him. We highly recommend this tour!

          Excellent tour!
          This was our first trip to CDMX and we thoroughly enjoyed this tour with our expert guide, Carlos, and very capable driver, Arturo. Arturo did a great job driving and was always very courteous. Carlos was a wealth of knowledge on the history of the sites we visited and we also had very robust discussions of numerous topics during the 5+ hours we spent with both gentlemen. This tour was the highlight of our trip to CDMX and we highly recommend both Carlos and Arturo to take you on a journey to some of Mexico's past, and present. Thank you both for a wonderful day.

          Great trip! Lots of history and beautiful churches! Puebla is gorgeous! I’m not a fan of mole, but the mole here is superb.

          Awesome tour and impressive history learned!
          Great tour guide and driver. Our guide, Roberto, was very knowledgeable and shared so much history and information throughout the tour. My wife can be a little “extra” for pictures and Robert had a great attitude about it! Our driver, Carlos, was great as well. Clean vehicle and always on-time for pick ups. The pyramids are beautiful and so impressive up close. The shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe was breathtakingly beautiful. Learning so much about Juan Diego was unexpected! Great tour and we highly recommend!

          A Walk Through History
          Ramon was an incredible tour guide. He is a walking encyclopedia. He too great care of us through the entire day and we learned a tremendous amount. I am glad we included the lunch stop as we were ready to take a rest and refill for the afternoon.

          Wonderful day for our family
          We had a great day with Ramon and Lalo. They picked us up right outside our Airbnb and took us to 4 distinct locations. The van was comfortable and air conditioned. They supplied us with clean cold water all day. Ramon was very well educated and has an excellent command of English; he made the tour fun and fascinating! We loved seeing Teotihuacan and the Basillica of Our Lady of Guadalupe most. Lunch was a private sitting in an open air restaurant with a well prepared food typical of the area with a great view of the Pyramid of the Sun in the background. We had our three older teen sons with us; all enjoyed the day! I highly recommend this experience.

        My trip to Mexico City with your tour guide was a disaster from the beginning. Roberto “Bob” the tour guide was 30 minutes late.Our group of 7 adults had paid for a private tour . After visiting Xochimilco our group traveled to the Frida Kahlo Museum, Bob the tour guide had to beg and plead to let our group in as the museum was closing? What? We paid in advance and we may not get in? this was frustrating,next we went to Diego Rivera museum and dropped off, literally dropped off, As we tried to enter, the staff informed us usually the tour guide has the tickets and accompanies the group… Bob was nowhere to be found, seven upset and disappointed adults were left abandoned in the courtyard. Eventually our driver was located and was able to give our group access to the museum. Coyoacan the tour states admission? We drove around in circles in the city, what was the point? Bob stated the tour was over and returning us to our drop off location. What happened to UNAM? Bob said we saw it,” remember in the morning he pointed it out” pointed it out from the freeway! What? The tour was for exploring the university by foot to view the mosaic murals.
        This tour was a Big mistake that caused grief and frustration to our entire group. Bob was no tour guide, he left us abandoned, and had no historical data or facts for us. Your tour site was a real letdown. We would have been better off hiring our own driver. Because that’s what Bob was, he simply accompanied the driver and was No Tour Guide.

        We loved this tour and our guide, Ramon, made it more special with his extensive knowledge of all things Mexico.
        Our trip was on a weekday which meant Xochimilco was quiet, we loved it as you could wander and enjoy some of the views and wildlife on the canal. The boat ride on weekends gets wild with the canals packed with boats, vendors and mariachis.
        The Frida Kahlo museum, Olympic stadium, university murals and Diego Rivera’s museum were interesting as well

        Sergio (tour guide) and Juan (driver) were the sweetest! We got picked up at 9am at W in Polanco. My husband unfortunately had a business call that ran late and Serio and Juan were so kind not to make me feel weird while I waited in the car for my husband. Once we were on our trip we explained that we had a very late night and we needed a michelada. As soon as we arrived to Xochimilco he let everyone know that we needed one urgently, and he got us one asap. The entire trip Sergio was so informative and our driver was so very kind. When we were in Coayacan we asked if we could eat in a restaurant and he kindly allowed us time to eat in a fabulous restaurant on the square. Such a perfect day and highly recommend.

        This tour was very informative and immersive in Mexican culture. Julio was a great tour guide and took time to explain the history and traditions of the various relics and buildings and art. He was fun and friendly and I would totally do another tour with him again. From the museums to the park and the UNAM and stadium tour we had a full day of learning about the culture and people of Ciudad de México.

        Excellent day out with our dapper and knowledgeable guide Sergio and driver Antonio picking us up from our hotel. Off to Xochimilco canals for a great laugh,the place teaming with vibrant colours and mad Mariachi bands in boats touting for tourists and worth every peso for the bonkers entertainment. Then whistled off to both Diego Rivera museum with awesome collection and architecture and Frida Kahlo Casa Azul with all its historic importance and beauty. Finished off with amazing street food in a Taqueria in a huge covered market. Delicious Tacos and beer. Everything to like!

        We had the pleasure of being guided on this tour by Giovanni and our driver, Victor. Giovanni was incredibly knowledgeable about Mexico and it’s history. The Xochimilco boat tour was beautiful and fascinating. Giovanni gave us information about its ecological prominence and its formation. We walked the city center of Coyoacan and marveled at its 16th century architecture. We toured on All Souls Day so we were right in the middle of a national celebration! Again, Giovanni had vast knowledge of the area. From there we walked to Frida Kahlo’s Museum, and just happened to see a celebratory parade on the way! The Blue House of Frida Kahlo was spectacular filled with her art and Diego’s tributes to her. Please request Giovanni if you are lucky enough to book this tour!

        This was a fantastic tour and one I highly recommend. Our guide was very knowledgeable and organized. My favorite part was visiting the Frida Kahlo museum, but my partner contends that Xochimilco was the best part because he was able to steer the boat.

        I have never had - or even heard of - a better tour experience anywhere. Our tour guide, Jose, had flawless English and deep knowledge of every area we visited - and many that we did not have time to explore.

        Jose really went above and beyond to make the tour as fun and informative as possible, and he really leaned in to the group dynamic too. He was happy to answer any questions we had, and to get back to us with an answer on the (very rare) occasions we asked questions beyond even his extensive knowledge. He gave us lots of amazing recommendations for what to do around the city, where to go, and how to make the most of our time.

        The tour was also adjusted to meet our schedule and interests, and everyone was very accommodating. We really felt that they were there to help us have the most amazing time possible.

        My wife and I had a wonderful day with Jaclyn as our guide.

        * We began at the University of Mexico to see the olympic stadium from a distiance and the beautiful exterior of the library, which is a work of art. She thoughtfully pointed out many important details of the art.

        * We then went to Xochimilco where we enjoyed a fun "cruise" on one of the colorful boats in the canal. It's a fund sensory experience. One negative, a jewelery sales person was invited on board without any indication this would happen and we had to spend time with her instead of enjoying the cruise. My wife missed most of what was going on. Please don't do this again...a major turnoff.

        * We then went to Cayoacan where we enjoyed the hustle bustle and saw the house where Cortez lived and had lunch at a wonderful local restaurant. Jaclyn joined us, which was really nice as she helped make sure we ordered delicious local and regional specialties.

        * We then went to the Frida Kahlo Museum, which was interesting. I wan't sure what to expect, but there was a nice balance of displayed art and some of the fashionable garments she was famous for.

        We then head back to the hotel to conclude a wonderful day.
