Very friendly and helpful guide and a good experience overall

Oskar was very communicative throughout this planned trip, speaking on numerous occasions about the plans, such as times, meeting points etc. I felt very comfortable and consulted throughout the organisation period. The experience itself was well planned and enjoyable. After explaining I don't know much of the city, Oskar met me at my hotel and we travelled down from the centre to the stadium, showing me places and features along the way. I speak absolutely no Spanish at all, so I needed Oskar to help me with practically everything, which he happily did. After the game, he went with me for food, and again, helped explain everything. I would 1,000,000% recommend any tour with Oskar, and I am disappointed that I booked things through TripAdvisor before finding him! Thanks a million!

Thank you for giving me such a great review Cris! It was so nice to meet you and be part of your trip in Mexico City. I hope that one day you will return to this city and if so, do not hesitate to tell me! I will do the same when I go to England. I hope you continue traveling and visiting football stadiums around the world. All the best. Your friend Oskar
