Nearing the end of our week-long vacation, I wanted to treat my wife to a special tour through the quaint neighborhoods of La Roma and Condesa. While I am an uber-researcher, I knew I wouldn't be able to give her the goods like a real local would – and that's where Laura and the Walk It Tour waltzed right in.
We started our 5 hour La Roma and Condesa Tour in a back room of La Broka restaurant, where Laura set up a private wine tasting with Chef Cesar and his crew. Glowing with delicious Mexican wine and a taste of citrusy refreshing ceviche, we walked through the bohemian La Roma side streets. The entire time Laura would call attention to street art, architecture, and quirky shops that my wife went crazy for. I felt my wife and Laura bond like long lost best-friends and it made me smile to see her this happy.
Another highlight was going through the trendy Mercado Roma, where we sampled some treats (including grasshoppers!), picked up coffee, jams, and salsa.
Condesa felt more residential than it's more Bohemian neighbor of La Roma, but Condesa's many parks, tree-lined streets, and Art-Deco structures made it a wonderful visit.
Laura set up a private art tour at the Advent Design building. We saw some unique pieces and installations and met some lovely people, including an artist.
Nearing the end of the tour, Laura walked us to a special one-day art-fair called The New Society where 50 modern creatives showcased their crafts, art, fashion, and wares in a buzzing vibe where Mexico City's beautiful people mingled. My wife was in heaven.
So if you are looking for a specialized, informative tour of La Roma and Condesa – Walk It is it.
My wife still talks about the tour to this day and Laura was a huge part of it.
Laura is the perfect guide – smart, hip, funny, positive, and passionate. Even though she is originally from New Zealand, she is just like us – someone who has come to Mexico City and through the people, food, art and it's racing pulse – has fallen in love with it.
