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.

This was an outstanding tour. Carlos is an extremely knowledgeable and professional guide and generously shared with us information not only about Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and all the museums we visited, but also about the history of Mexico, Teotihuacan and the Aztecs as this related to them. An excellent experience!

Frida and Diego day!!! We immersed ourselves in the art and architecture of these two most influential Mexicans from the 1920 - 50s. Not only do you see their art, but also a glimps into their lives visiting their homes and that of their patron, Delores Olmedo and her sprawling hacienda in Xochimlico. Anahuacalli is a revelation, and Museo Frida Kahlo inspiring and absorbing. Life and death are one, lived to the fullest one senses. You are left wanting and "needing". Thank you Frida and Diego (and Carlos)

Carlos is a native of Mexico City. He knows the history, the ins and outs, where to go, how to get there and is full of information. We spent a day with Carlos and are thankful he was our guide. We recommend him and would choose him again.

Fantastic tour with Carlos! He is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the art of Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, as well as Mexican culture and history. (He also does a rather amazing job navigating the streets and traffic of Mexico City.) We learned so much from him and had a truly enjoyable time on this tour.

Carlos was charming, knowledgeable and everything we hoped for in a guide. We are two close friends with different expectations and he exceeded those of both of us. His breadth and depth of knowledge about Kahlo, Rivera, as well Mexican art, history and culture generally enhanced our tour to important art sites in Coyoacan. He was prompt and an excellent driver! We were in good hands! We would definitely recommend Sr Carlos to any travelers to Mexico City, novice or knowledgeable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot I had the most wonderful time with you

Carlos's tour of Diego Rivera and Frida Karlo's art was knowledgable and revealing. He provided interesting details about the biographies of the artists and offered informed commentary on the artwork we were viewing. Carlos was punctual, responsible, and considerate. We appreciated that he was a safe and patient driver in the epic Mexico City traffic. We had a memorable experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot there's not much to do with this crazy traffic sometimes but I am glad you got a good time

Carlos was our guide in our quest to learn more about the art of Frido Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Carlos did an excellent job sequencing the tour to assure we learned as much as possible about the duo, along with seeing the art itself. Carlos was punctual, well versed in the art and history of the time period, was a safe driver, had excellent English, and overall was a delightful and knowledgeable guide. We highly recommend him.

Kathy PalomoUnited States
Maximizing time for our short trip, we opted to go with Tours by Locals. It was the best decision we made. Carlos was stellar and added one more stop along the way and accommodated us. It rained while we were in Frida's house, which matched my tears of emotions as I relived her personal space. Highly recommended!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot I am glad the tour exceeded your expectations
Nerissa LyndonNew Zealand
Carlos was very knowledgeable about Frida and Diego, this was a dream of mine for a long time to be able to see Frida's art in the flesh and experience her home. It was a great tour and Carlos is a very nice man, we felt safe on both our tours and were able to make the most of our time in each destination. A great tour for art lovers

Leah SeforSouth Africa
I cannot begin to describe how wonderful this tour was. Carlos was impeccable with his time agreements & very professional. His english is perfect and he was informative, passionate, patient and gentle which made him a pleasure to be with. Carlos went beyond what was originally booked by taking us to get a special local coffee and a walk through a nearby market where he helped us greatly as an interpreter and bargained prices down for us. The boat rides were a treat and lots of fun. We loved every minute.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Leah it was really my pleasure it is great when someone is so interested in Frida and Diego's life it makes me specially happy that you are satisfied with my work.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your ratings of my service :).
