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!

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 is an excellent guide and provided us with in depth knowledge of art, architecture and history. Loved visiting the courtyards, hotels and buildings we would have never stopped to see. And enjoyed her commentary on the murals. She was flexible and engaging and we had a wonderful day exploring the historic district of Mexico City!

There are many interesting things to see in the Historic Center. The Diego Rivera murals at the Palace are incredible as is the post office and the Palacio del Arte. Monica is extremely knowledgeable and can go into as much or as little detail as you like.

Monica is a fantastic tour guide. She is extremely knowledgeable about Mexican art, architecture, history, and archaeology, and has a very efficient and effective way of communicating information on these subjects. I was particularly impressed with her knowledge and insight into the works of Diego Rivera and the history of the buildings in the Zocalo. Monica also goes out of her way to make her customers comfortable and happy. I highly recommend Monica to be your next tour guide.

Monica provided us a full day of sights and education about Mexico's history. She was considerate of our interests and preferences. We particularly enjoyed her in-depth commentary on the works of Diego Rivera at the Palacio Nacional - so much so that we felt no need to delve into his work any further. She also provided details during the Templo Mayor tour that we were able to relate to another tour. Monica was engaging, interesting, and her English was excellent. We had a wonderful time.

Very knowledgeable and incredibly flexible which we really appreciated as we were a Family of 8, including 2 children. Max our driver was excellent. Our tours were excellent and we could not have enjoyed ourselves more. We highly recommend Monica. Robin

Monica is a delightful lady and extremely knowledgeable in every aspect of her tour. She amazed us. She also took the time to find out our interests so she could customize the tour. We could have spent days in the Historical Center in order to see it all. The architecture in Mexico City is beautiful and I highly recommend having a guide to explain what you are looking at, otherwise you will miss a lot. (You will be very lucky if you are able to book this tour with Monica)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I can hardly think of a more flattering testimonial!

This was the first of three tours we took with Monica while we were in Mexico City. We had never been to Mexico City before, and this tour turned out to be an excellent introduction, just as Monica had promised. I was awestruck seeing the ruins of the Templo Mayor, and thoroughly charmed by the beautiful courtyards we encountered behind many of the building facades. Our idyllic lunch was on the terrace of a 16th-century mansion with a beautiful view of the cathedral. I highly recommend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm glad the tour happened to be good! It's has been great to have met you! My best regards!

Monica Y was also our tour guide to Mexico's historic city center (we did Teotihuacan with her too). There were 2 of us AND IT WAS EXCELLENT! Monica is helpful, friendly, professional, flexible, very knowledgeable, accommodating, awesome! I would recommend this trip to everyone. We so appreciated her willingness to give us all the time we needed to see the murals at the National Palace and the fabulous Templo Mayor ruins and museum. WOW! The tour and Monica were the BEST(and lunch was wonderful). THANKS!

What a gem we found when we contracted Monica to take us around in Mexico City! She was friendly,funny, wonderfully bilingual and so flexible. When one of the group started to feel unwell, she changed plans to accommodate that. She took us to see things we did not know we wanted to see. She was pleasant,good company and very well versed in the history of Mexico. She knew her way and delivered us in a safe and efficient way. Use Monica! She is excellent and competent.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It is good to know that all of you liked and enjoy the tour! The same way happened with me. Hope you can come back again!

On our first visit to Mexico City, the day-long tour of the city's historic center was simply amazing! Monica is very knowledgeable, insightful, and entertaining. She was more than able to answer our many questions regarding the history of Mexico City and also provided suggestions for shopping, restaurants, and other helpful hints. We anxiously look forward to booking another tour with her.
