Monika was very accommodating to our group of 4 women, including our shopping fun! It would have been nice, however, if she reached out and informed us well in advance to purchase advance tickets to Frieda Kahlo house. While her tour description stated to do so generally, when I went on line 3 days in advance the tickets were all gone.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ellen, The tour details in description explains very well and even more the scheduled time to get your tickets in advance. As well, when I told you to get your tickets 3 days before the tour, there were available since 10:30, but not one day before. It would have been better if people read all the information displayed.

My wife and I, our son and his wife .enjoyed our day with Monica very much. At the Chapultepec Castle she was the first to have interpreted the murals for me[I have been there several times]. J Her forte , however , was the Museum of Anthropology. She gave a truly insightful and educational tour of the Aztec and Mayan rooms and enough of classical and pre classical for orientation. She gave us time to eat when we were fading in early afternoon and was friendly and helpful throughout the day. Recommended.

I've been in Mexico City a few times but it was my parents' first trip so I thought a tour of the historical center would be a nice way to kick off their vacation...and thanks to Monica I wasn't disappointed. She walked us through an informative overview of Mexican history as depicted by the Diego Rivera mural in the Palace and then showed us how the city's architecture tells a story about Mexico's history. She showed us local secrets and taught us to appreciate each part of the city. This tour is a must!

Monica's help with this tour was invaluable. She knows the neighborhood very well and helped us plan the day so we avoided the long lines at The Frida Kahlo Museum. Her knowledge of art, architecture and history is impressive and very helpful as we explored both the Kahlo and the Trotsky Museum nearby. We enjoyed a delightful lunch at the market in Coyoacan and explored the many beautiful displays. You can find everything there from fresh produce and molé to textiles, baskets, glass, toys and pottery.

I would highly recommend Monica for any designer/architect or anybody interested in Luis Barragán buildings. She knows every little detail in both houses we visited and we'd miss a lot if we hadn't have her with us. Both places are unforgettable, we are planning to come back and see more Barragán buildings with Monica's help.

We spent the whole day walking around and inside the most beautiful buildings in Mexico City. Monica's knowledge of Mexican history is deep and extensive. Our kids 12 and 14 were engaged in conversation and every question was answered. Monica showed us several restraunts we visited during the rest of our stay and they all were exceptional. Will come back, so many more things to see.

Monica's tour of Teotihuacan was perfect for our family. She was understanding of our 11 & 12 year old's interests and stamina for the circumstances. Her knowledge accounted for a tour filled with brilliant stories and interesting facts presented with context our children understood. Monica's experience especially helped us to successfully navigate our list for the day despite a very busy holiday crowd. Monica is a dedicated professional with a delightful, agreeable personality.

Monica is a deeply knowledgeable guide, both about the history of Teotihuacan and also how to best navigate the large site & crowds. We traveled with our teenagers and Monica made the ancient people and modern discovery of Teotihuacan come alive. She Had deep knowledge on all areas of interest and made connections between the murals on site and their influence on specific Deigo Rivera murals. She is also fun and energetic - we really enjoyed the day with her.

This is a fantastic tour and Monica is a superb guide. Seeing all three sites makes Rivera & Kahlo life and work come alive.

We travel with our teenagers and Monica kept them engaged the entire day. We really enjoyed our time with Monica, she is fun and engaging.
