Mexico City Tour Reviews

Fantastic Tour

Oskar spoke perfect English and was extremely friendly. He is well educated and his knowledge of history, architecture and culture of the city was appreciated. He was very flexible with his tour and took us to places we would never have found ourselves. A great way to spend our only day in CDMX. Thank you Oskar.
