Carlos is a 10-star guide. He structured our introduction to Mexico City tour beautifully, and with clarity and depth provided us with a richly layered story of the development of this remarkable city. His knowledge is profound and his manner charming and engaging.

Carlos was engaging and was able to provide an wealth of information about Mexico City. He knows his stuff. Brought us to a great restaurant. One issue about the whole day tour is you sit in Mexico traffic as sites we visited were pretty spread out. However, not something Carlos could control. It is just something to consider when choosing this specific tour.

Carlos planned the tour to include as many significant sights as possible, taking into consideration traffic and distance. His explanations were clear and appropriate in depth of information. As a result, we ended up seeing some wonderful historic and contemporary sights. Our lunch at a traditional Mexican restaurant allowed us to sample authentic high quality cuisine. Carlos also is very pleasant and a pleasure to tour with

Carlos provided a 5 star tour. He hit the highlights of Mexico City in one day. A feat un to itself. It gave me a great flavor of Mexico City and all of its history. Carlos was extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour.
Carlos was engaged and responsive to our e mails before our tour. He gave us the Mexico City tour we were looking for. We appreciated the efforts he went to

Carlos was knowledable, patient and caring with our group of 6. Our first day in Mexico he took us to basilica, Zolaco, museums and markets around the area as well xochi to do the canoe rides. He waited for us to grab food and buy a couple of things as well he dealt with a lot of traffic for us. We appreciate his guidance and suggestions when it came to city.

Awesome tour with Carlos, saw much more and learnt much more than we would have indepently and such a nice guy to boot. Definitely recommend.
A great bonus for us was Carlos's splendid knowledge of Mexican history, which I discussed with him extensively as we drove through the city and he always provided detailed insights into each of the seminal, watershed events in that turbulent story. We enjoyed two fine lunches with him in excellent restaurants we would not have otherwise known to visit. Finally, special mention should be made of his wonderful, informative commentary during our visit to the Museum of anthropology.
With no planned agenda, Carlos took us to some very interesting places in the city including the University, old town, an ancient pyramid, canals/boats in Xochimilco, and the anthropology museum. All great choices... most of which we wouldn't have found on our own. Carlos is very patient and never rushed us. His car is clean and well maintained. Carlos is an exceptionally careful driver, and we always felt safe.

Carlos was an exceptional Local Guide. He provided an excellent insiders tour of Mexico City. Carlos is very knowledgeable and pointed out important things we would have overlooked on our own. Carlos showed up on time, spoke fluent English and adjusted the itinerary and pace of our tour to suit our needs. He even added a few unexpected extras.
This will be a strange review as we didn't actually go due to inauguration of new president and downtown being almost shut down. However Carlos took us to Puebla and Chulala which was amazing. Highly recommend Carlos as a knowledgeable and likeable guide.

A long day, but worth it. Not only do you appreciate the enormity of Mexico City (MC) but you see the key sites, most efficiently by private car. Again Carlos is flexible to meet your specific needs, with a visit to the "bread basket" (garden, flower and plant markets - one of us a botanist) of MC. We traversed from Xochimilco on a boat, the Ciudad University, and finally Chapultepec Park Botanic Gardens and the Museo of Anthropology. We started at 8:30am and arrived home 6:30pm, tired but enthralled.

The most awesome tour!! Best tour for the first time visitor to Mexico City. Carlos was professional, knowledgeable, patient and thoroughly enjoys sharing his love for Mexico. His driving skills were very much appreciated and we felt so safe in the hustle and bustle of Mexico traffic. We HIGHLY recommend Carlos as your next tour guide in Mexico City. Make sure Carlos picks the lunch restaurant!!

Go ahead and book a tour with Mr. Carlos R. right now! Knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and considerate, he was the highlight of our trip to Mexico City. The time we spent at the anthropology museum and the ruins were both enchanting and educative thanks to his seasoned commentary. When the scheduled tour was up, moreover, he offered to go overtime out of genuine eagerness for us to see what the time did not allow us of the city, and really, free of charge. Thank you Mr. Carlos R. for your work and kindness.

We travelled Mexico for nearly four weeks and our tour with Carlos in Mexico City was one of our absolute highlights. He gave us a perfect introduction to the pre-Columbian background of modern Mexican society, answered all our questions about everyday life and let us taste the best tortillas of our entire holiday. He is a perfect guide: patient, calm, funny and full of love for his profession and his city. Thank you, Carlos!
David DeuschleUnited States
Carlos is the best guide and friend
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot David it was really a great pleasure to have the opportunity to guide you in different parts in Mexico
While Carlos was friendly and knowledgable about Mexican history, we found him disengaged (mostly looking at his phone) and not very helpful when required. We missed a lot of things on the itinerary due to being stuck in traffic (which is not his fault) but he didn't offer alternatives or find out what we were interested in. We would recommend other tours we undertook in Mexico City above this one.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sorry that you were not happy unfortunately our delays started when you were not at the meeting point on time, and I constantly asked you for your preferences, we even had more time at the Anthropology and I offered you a extra stop at the Trotsky museum, I'm sorry you felt me disengaged but as I told you I had my 8 year old child with an eye infection and I was trying to keep in touch with him.
Benjamin MartinUnited States
We took a tour with Carlos on New Years Eve. We had a great time! Carlos really knows his way around the city and has an immense knowledge of Mexico City and its history! He also is great to talk to in the car! We highly recommend! Thanks Carlos!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much indeed for the opportunity to show you some of the places of this big city

Carlos is reliable knowledgeable and delightful to spend a day with. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ralph and Sean it was a pleasure for me
Sean C.BAKERSFIELD, CA, United States
Carlos was great! Very professional, knowledgeable, respectful and easy to be around. It was important to him that I saw all that I wanted and he actually went a few hours over the standard tour time to make that happen. He is also the model of calm when it comes to dealing with Mex City traffic. He never complained once. That goes to his professionalism. The only request I made that he didn't fill was when I asked to meet the President of Mexico. To be fair, I didn't give him much notice. Next time, lol
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sorry Sean but you know the President was out of town lol . Thank you my work is even better when people are knowledgeable about ancient cultures of Mexico like you.
Bennet AlsherUnited States
My husband and I had a wonderful day in Mexico City with Carlos. We have traveled to many places and know what a difference a great tour guide can make. We highly recommend Carlos as a guide who does the extra things to make a trip special.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot I am so glad that experienced travellers like you would give me 5 stars it is a real honor.
Randy R.United States
Excellent day! Carlos was waiting for us when we walked out our hotel door. His knowledge of the City and the history of the entire country -- pre-hispanic to hispanic peoples -- is astounding. He was very attentive and engaged with our 17 year old son. Carlos took us to an amazing restaurant for lunch that was truly a delightful experience. This is the second time we have been with Carlos and already he seems like a good friend. Carlos' driving skills are comforting in a city with 4 million cars!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks again Randy I'm so pleased that you are satisfied with the tour we did on Mexico City. You should return again some time cause there's much more to see.
