What happens when you arrive at one of the biggest cities in the world, you are really hungry and it is just overwhelming to even think of where to start?
This is where I come in. Depending on your likes, this is a very flexible tour. I can take you to listen to the Mariachis, while we have some tequila or Mezcal at one of the most well-known cantinas, or we can explore the south of the city for a more green tour, and try some delicious pulque, the beverage of the gods while riding on a trajinera (floating gardens) around the Xochimilco lake. We can explore downtown and its legends, history and beautiful architecture and end up at the luchas libres (wrestling) or we can do go to some of the greatest museums ever, such as Frida Kahlo's museum or the anthropology museum, just to name a couple, and of course, no tour is complete without amazing food!!
Up to you, I know the city and can improvise better than a jazz musician
Don't tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you traveled.


Pick up at meeting location, then we head either downtown or south of the city to check out an amazing museum, such as Frida Kahlo's or Anthropology museum and once we get hungry, we go to a local market to try different Mexican foods, to recharge batteries before heading to a cantina to try local drinks if you'd like. During the tour, there will be parts where we can walk a lot for you to really get the feeling of the street life and learn about the history, legends, and myths of these streets and buildings. We can also go to the luchas libres o any special event happening that day. At the end of the tour, which time really depends on your energy, I will drop you off at any location you request or your hotel.

A Recent Review of this tour

The tours by locals service is excellent. My guide, Enrique was one of the, if not the best tour guide I have ever been guided by. He clearly understands the notion of customer first. He was extremely diligent and tirelessly arranged all of my requests (some not typical tourist endeavors) in advance and able to suggest valuable points of interest to fill open time in parts of the agenda I had not planned. If you are lucky enough to secure the services of Enrique, you will not be disappointed!
