My wife and I had 3 wonderful days touring with Stylewalk. Many other top-rated reviews reflect accurately the details of what we too experienced so I won't repeat what others have written but the points i want to stress are as follows. My pre-tour communications with Stylewalk owner Laura Laura, were easy, clear and flexible. We spent a lot of time working together to figure out what sites/attractions would make the best fit for our interests each day. She was extremely patient with all my verbal and written questions (and I had plenty of them since this would be our first trip to the city) We ultimately did 4 tours in the 3 days and they were impeccable from start to finish. The first day was spent with Javier driving us all around the city to places like Xochimilco (where locals partied on fluorescent colorful barges in canals to the accompaniment of mariachi bands while buying food from vendors in floating canoes) The second day was much less car focused -- we spent the day in the Centro Historico (where one could actually spend 3 days and not see all the terrific sites) then ended the day by driving to the awe-inspiring Basilica de la Virgen De Guadelupe.. Javier was a terrific safe driver, spoke English beautifully and had a great sense of humor. He also chose some fabulous street vendors for tacos and other treats during each of the days. My wife and I have traveled extensively but have generally been shy about eating street food in some countries but his selections were incredibly good and the food was simple but fresh, tasty and overall awesome. Javier was everything we could have wanted in a guide. Day 3's morning tour was the Street Art Tour with the extremely talented and knowledgeable Claudio who showed us terrific street art, explained artists' unique personal tagging and other ways one should "read" street art, made us feel incredibly special and then traveled all the way on the subway with us (and then walked quite a while with us) to a great Roma restaurant where after more great food we met...Laura for our afternoon tour of the "secret" stores and art galleries in the Roma neighborhood. Fun, exciting, flexible to our own unique interests (e.g., she offered to take us to a wine store specializing in Mexican wines but when we declined she quickly pivoted to take us to a tiny artisan's jewelry gallery and then a store where hummingbirds flew in and out in the late afternoon/early evening. She also interspersed the walk with fascinating history of the Roma neighborhood. We parted with great sorrow as we could have easily extended the afternoon tour into the evening.
The bottom line: Stylewalk made us feel secure and in experienced hands from the moment we contacted Laura, gave us terrific tours by car and foot, made every hour fun and interesting, gave us a much deeper understanding of the city and its history and was everything we hoped the tours would be. We give it our highest recommendation and my only regret is that I didn't write this as soon as we came back from our trip in late November 2016.
