A Recent Review of this guide
Fernando was one of the best guides I have ever had! I have traveled the world and Fernando was simply amazing. So well spoken, so knowledgeable and incredible kind and accommodating. He knew how to avoid the crowds and really have a private and authentic experience. I would recommend Tours by Locals and especially Fernando for ANY tour you want to do in Mexico. Thanks for having Fernando as one of your best guides. He made friend's 50th birthday trip even more spectacular.
