Mexico City Tour Reviews

Exceptionally Excellent Guide

We were fortunate enough to have Roberto Gonzalez as our Guide for Mexico City and surrounding areas. Roberto spoke English very well, he had an excellent command of the language. His knowledge about Mexican History, culture and art were remarkable. He brought the timeline of Mexican history to life for us. He was always very prompt and pleasant to be with. He had a good sense of humor that we appreciated. He enhanced our time in Mexico unmeasurably. We truly appreciated having him for our guide. By the end of our time together we felt like we had made a great friend in Roberto, he is truly a kind and caring man. We highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an exceptional guide. Most Sincerely Hayworth and Kristi Louie

My first day in Mexico City

Excellent private tour! Roberto was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly with a great sense of humor, and he gave me a fantastic day in the museum. I learnt about history, art, culture, and much more. I am well-traveled and have high standards, and I was delighted with Roberto - he was great and spoke excellent English. One of the best of my day in Mexico City!

Love and hate are combined in a romance full of distances and reconciliations, an unstable love but one that would unite them for eternity. Passionate and tender, a relationship born on August 21, 1929, and marked by a carefree love overflowing with passion. that transcends time and space. Join me to uncover this intimacy, as we travel between streets, bricks and walls, brushes, and colored canvases so full and yet sometimes so empty.
