Coyoacan, Mexico City, D.F., Mexico

Hello, I am a Private Guide that offers Private tours of Mexico City and surrounding areas.

I'm Mexican who has lived in Mexico City since I was born. As a result of my passion for Mexican culture, I became a tour guide and have been working as a Tour Guide since 2005. I have a great love and knowledge for my country and I have enjoyed working with people from all over the world. My highest priority is to ensure that you have a magnificent and memorable stay in Mexico. Therefore, I have created tours of the city's highlights, from cultural hotspots to architectonic works, especially of Luis Barragan, and those of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Mexico. As well, I have magnificent options for a layover in Mexico City. I invite you to be in touch with Mexican history and culture with the minimum amount of trouble. I may let you know that I'm a very flexible person so I can also customize your tour for your needs and interests.
