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 lived in Downtown Mexico City for over fifteen years. I know the old tales that people tell and I've studied the history of the city as a personal interest. It's a fascinating web of circumstances, both historic and contemporary, that create one of the most populated, most diverse and most 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. I didn't want to. It immediately became my home, and as such, I became obsessed with knowing about it's history. I've learned quite a bit throughout the years, which has also benefited my writing. Now I know the details, the inner workings. I've walked the streets countless times and eaten marvelous foods; I've enjoyed the exquisite architecture and witnessed unique sights.

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 honoured to guide you through the wonders of Mexico City.

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 guide you inside of 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 to travellers with difficult health conditions.
