Great orientation for first-time travelers to CDMX
Jul 2021
Emiliano, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable, generous with recommendations, and good about checking in to see if everyone was good (needed bathroom breaks, wanted to sit/be in the shade). The tour's stops are varied and informative. This is a great, affordable way to get oriented to Mexico City! The company texted the day before to let me know who the guide would be and to remind me of the meetup location, which was really thoughtful.

Great tour, great value.
Emiliano was our guide, he was very knowledgeable and was able to answer any questions. The tour gives a great overview of the buildings in the historic district and we even branched out into the surrounding areas and got recommendations on food and shopping. We only paid $15/each, so the value of this tour is phenomenal. It was worth every penny, highly recommend!!

Super informative and interesting tour
Our guide, Andres, was very informative on this tour. We had to cross police barriers to find him as we did this on Mexicos most recent election day. We visited several places that tours don't always visit, like the post office and an old pharmacy along with the cathedral and other ruins. I would recommend this if you are interested in some real history of the area.

GREAT tour!
Jun 2021 • Solo
Andres was incredible: knowledgeable, engaging, and fun. You will learn more in a few hours on this tour than you would in a semester of history class. I will definitely be doing this tour again, as I'm sure there's so much more to see!

Walking and fun learning
If you can only do one tour make it this one. The price is right and our guide was an old friend in about 15 minutes. Learned so much about what we otherwise just walk past. 100 % would recommend. A must for visitors.
