Mexico City

We offer a variety of cultural and historical tours.  Below, please see a description of each of the following types of services that we offer: 

Private Tours

Your guided tour of Mexico City is just for yourself, at your pace. We design your cultural tour together and guarantee you a superb guide. If your group is too large  for a car, we can also arrange for an excellent van and driver!  Without car, your tour is by foot and with public transport and/or taxis, always accompanied by your guide.

Before your arrival, we work with you via email to figure out  your needs and your interests. You are assigned an extremely knowledgeable bilingual guide for your particular mix of culture in the broadest sense: prehispanic and contemporary history, art and muralism, architecture, food markets, everyday life. You can even modify the tour plan while you are with your guide!

Trip support

Get advice, information and answers to your questions, before and during your trip.

Receive our recommendations, advice, information about things you can do on your own and support during your stay in the city. We make a draft program for your entire stay, which you can review and modify as many times as you like. Support is via email and a messenger service like WhatsApp.

NOTE: we do not do everything for you: this is support for people who are semi-independent but just need a local reliable contact for information and feedback. Price varies from USD$30-$80, depending on group size and number of days you stay in the city.
