Valentin C.

Mexico City, Distrito Federal, Mexico

Hello, friends. My name is Valentín. Writer by trade; tour guide by conviction.

I am a published author that has also been a resident in Downtown Mexico City for over fifteen years. You see, I know the old tales that people tell and I've researched the city's history as a personal interest. It's a fascinating web of unbelievable circumstances and unpredictable odds, which creates one of the most diverse and energetic cities in the world. I'd like to share some of those insights with travelers interested in the local and authentic culture.

Mexico City, what a place! The Neverending City, the City of Palaces.

I first came here as a college student from the interior of the country, then I couldn't leave. Or perhaps I didn't want to. It immediately became my home, and as such, I obsessed myself over knowing all about its history. I've learned just a bit throughout the years, which has also benefited my own writing. Now I know the details, the inner workings. I've walked the streets countless times and I've eaten the marvelous food; I've also enjoyed the exquisite architecture and witnessed unique happenings.

I quite enjoy traveling, so I am committed to providing the same high-quality experiences that I've encountered in other places. I would be glad and honored to guide you through the wonders of Mexico City. Please send me a message if you have additional inquiries. See you when you get here.

A Recent Review of this guide

I went on several tours while in Mexico City and this one was my favorite! I loved Lucha Libre so much, I plan to attend again when I come back. Valentin is fun and thoughtful and he knows so much about the city. I recommend him and this tour to anyone looking for a unique Mexico City experience.

Credentials

Literature and Sciences of Language bachelor's degree by University of the Cloister of Sor Juana. Picture a colonial spanish convent, turned into a university. Right in the heart of Downtown Mexico City, it was a wonderful experience.

Although I am not a certified tour guide, I am well-versed in matters of history and novelty in Mexico City. I have lived here for many years, so I'll be able to provide a unique experience from a local and authentic point of view. I also balance a career as a published writer, so I am keen to detail and narrative. Oh, the stories I could tell you. Oh, the sights I could show you.

Restrictions

I am not a licensed guide, not able to access some historical monuments.
I am not a driver, but I can arrange for a separate car and driver.
I am not able to provide specialized medical assistance for travelers with difficult health conditions.
