Paulina is friendly, a wealth of knowledge and professional. We are a group of two families and eight of us, she managed the group, the time well and we got to do everything we signed up for while learning all about Mexican history and artifacts. Would love to work with her again in a heartbeat.

Paulina was excellent. Not only is she knowledgeable but very accommodating during the tour. She brought the Aztec ruins to life plus, she added intelligent conversation during the tour. I rate her a 5+. Sent from my iPad
Susan D.United States
Fabulous! She and her husband - both! She had a great sense of humor and communicated well. She was knowledgeable about many cultures and subjects. Her husband made everything easier by moving the location of the car while we were touring. He always had the car cooled. She made great suggestions but was flexible and always gave us choices. They were very prepared with tissues, cold water and candy. We highly recommend Paulina!
Danette LiljaUnited States
Paulina was not only very knowledgeable about the sites we visited, she was extremely kind and anticipated every need, including bringing water, sun hats, and extra pesos for the bathrooms. Her recommendation for lunch was excellent, and our overall experience was superb. Paulina is a professional tour guide, licensed by the government, which means she has spent years studying the history of Mexico. We would highly recommend contacting Paulina for any of your guide needs in Mexico.

We loved this tour that was provided by Paulina. We did what was on the list as planned, or at least what we wanted to do. What I really liked was that we had the choice to do what we wanted, when we wanted. We were not set on a specific schedule that we had to follow. She was also very friendly and informative. Great tour!
Melissa GonzalezUnited States
Paulina is amazing. We had a great with her. She is very knowelgeable, punctual, and accommodating. We can't wait to book another tour with her and would highly recommend her to anyone.
Had 2 great days with Paulina, visiting Teotihuacan, Guadalupe Church, and city tour. Paulina is very professional to work with, responds quickly and provides a very good idea of what to expect from her tours, and she did not disappoint! Fun trip, and learned a lot of history from her. She goes out of her way to attend to our requests for best food in town and even brought us there on 2 occasions. Definitely one of the best guides we had in all our travels! HIGHLY RECOMMEND Paulina!
Rebecca HenschelUnited States
Paulina was fabulous! Very accommodating and offered options of how we preferred to spend our time throughout the tour. I cannot imagine a better way to see Teotihuacan and the historic center of Mexico City. Thank you Paulina for your expertise!
Elizabeth WitterUnited States
Great tour. She is well informed, speaks excellent English, and is a great driver. Highly recommended
Kristen SztyndorUnited States
This was my first time using Tours by Locals and I was lucky to have had the pleasure and the honor of having Paulina as my tour guide for Teotihuacan. She is kind, caring, extremely intelligent and knowledgeable and will customize the itinerary with no hesitation at all to meet your needs and expectations. Paulina offered several recommendations throughout the day to help make my trip to Mexico City easier and more comfortable. I definitely recommend her to all my family and friends!
Gretchen BryantUnited States
Paulina was really wonderful. She gave us lots of choices along the way, and opportunities we wouldn't have had with a bigger tour group. For example, at various points she would give us options -- do you want to go to the next site or to eat? Do you want to eat at this place or another? I really appreciated the flexibility. She was knowledgable, patient and came prepared with extra bottles of water and hats!
Hilary R.United States
Knowledgeable, accommodating, and worth every penny! Paulina arrived on time with a cooler filled with cold bottles of water, sunscreen, and several hats we could borrow for sun protection (she saved me from getting sunburned). She had activities planned, but was flexible to our interests and requests. She spoke English fluently and has a wide variety of life experience, having lived all over the world. Highly recommended! Thank you Paulina for the incredible day. I learned so much and had the best time.
Phyllis RingUnited States
We had a wonderful tour with Paulina. She is extremely knowledgeable about Mexico City and the pyramids. Paulina gave us several options on how to spend the day and explained what was involved with each option. She is totally flexible and really individualized the day for us. Paulina has a good sense of humor and the day with her was a lot of fun. I would highly recommend booking a tour with Paulina!
Paulina is an excellent tour guide, we did the Teotihuacan tour. She is fluent in English and her knowledge of history is outstanding! We could ask her any questions and she would answer every questions! She knows the area very well, is very attentive to the need of each of her passenger. Provided us with the time we needed to complete each visit. We had a full day tour and we are very very satisfied of our guide and tour. Thank you Paulina!
Jeffrey RoetUnited States
Paulina is an accomplished tour guide as well as an excellent driver and conversationalist. We climbed to the top of every pyramid and she showed us the best way to climb up and down the narrow stairs as well as telling us about the history of the ancient city. Paulina took us to a part of the city that few other people visit but should because it was amazing! Then she recommended restaurants for lunch and we selected one of them, which is in a cave. Great choice! Great guide! Great person to know!
Richard RussellUnited States
We just returned from Mexico City and had a great time . The weather was spectacular but Paulina made the trip something special. We toured the pyramids at Teotihuacan and the Guadalupe Shrine on a private tour and came to appreciate her knowledge of the history of the sites and little secrets not in the flyers and brochures. She took us to lunch at a restaurant in a cavern that was impressive and would have a unique experience that we would have. >Her command of English and Spanish was exemplory.
Dorit HeimerUnited States
Paulina was a fabulous guide. We spent over 6 hours together visiting not only the Teotihuacan pyramids but also several additional "houses" with fascinating and beautiful murals. Paulina was knowledgeable and fun to be with. We ended the tour with a delicious meal at an out of the way, small family restaurant. All in all a terrific day. Highly recommend.
David PollakUnited States
Paulina was knowledgeable and a pleasure to spend time with. She both catered the tour to our interests (as well as speed) and pointed us to a good restaurant in town, away from the side-of-the-road places, for lunch. We recommend her highly.
Roy CourtneyUnited States
Paulina is an AMAZING tour guide. She is thoroughly knowledgeable as to the history of the area and gave us a running commentary the entire day. My husband has mobility issues, and she arranged to drive to areas where we could be dropped off, requiring a minimum of walking. She is WONDERFUL! We highly recommend her and hope to use her services in the future. BTW....she is as pleasant as she is capable!
Michael LupinUnited Kingdom
Paulina was a great guide - punctual, courteous, very knowledgeable and friendly. She even dropped off some tickets that we forgot at our hotel the following day! I'd highly recommend Paulina and would use her tour guide services again if I return to Mexico City.
Shawn SmithUnited States
Paulina was very knowledgeable, professional, and flexible during our tour! I had previously been to the pyramids, but her knowledge far exceeded my previous experience. She was great at providing options, and our lunch was fabulous at Restaurante Clotilet. I will seek her out for future tours!
Kathleen FrankovicUnited States
Paulina is extremely knowledgeable and willing to share what she knows. She is also well-prepared. She had aspirin to deal with my headache plus hats and water for people who might need them. Teotihuacan is a must. For the first time, I really understood the layout of the mesoAmerican cities. And even the non-religious should see Guadalupe. Paulina told us she is planning more tours. We look forward to returning to Mexico so we can tour again with her!
Constance BerkenUnited States
Paulina is the perfect tour guide! We are so glad we booked this tour. She picked us up at our hotel. She is a very safe driver. We went at a pace that was comfortable for us. She is passionate and answered all our questions. Her knowledge base is very broad. When we needed a break, Paulina took us to a very reasonable, local place for lunch. Our experience was much more meaningful because of this tour. We recommend Paulina as a guide and this tour if you desire the best experience!
Adria ErmolenkoUnited States
We had a wonderful day with Paulina! She is extremely knowledgeable and tailors your tour to your needs. She was very easy to talk to and answered all of our questions. She is even prepared for those of us who forget to bring sun hats (a must at Teothuacan) or water. We were able to see many things that we would not have without a private guide. Paulina's tour definitely exceeded our expectations and I highly recommend her! She clearly loves what she does and really went the extra mile!
Ellen BrinksUnited States
Paulina has a deep connection to Teotihuacan that has developed over the years, and we both enjoyed our tour with her immensely. She shared a wealth of information with us, and it made the site so much more accessible and interesting. She's funny and easy to talk to about everything. An extra treat was the lunch spot she took us too -- the best food we've had in Mexico so far. I recommend Paulina for this tour without reservation! Ellen
Christy StephensUnited States

I want to highly recommend Paulina with Tours by Locals. She possesses all the characteristics and skills of a great guide: excellent communication, memory and storytelling (with a dash of gossip), a sense of humor, expert knowledge, passion for the city and subjects, patience and flexibility, personable and sensitive, and finally punctual. Paulina truly enhanced my visit and made the tour a top experience in her beautiful and exciting city. She helped make my trip a wonderful adventure and memory!
