My wife and I had a second incredible day with Juan in Mexico City. This day focussed on Kahlo and Rivera. What an incredible day of learning and beauty. With Juan, we visited places that most tourists do not go. Of particular note was the Museo Dolores Olmedo Patiño! It was an absolute treat. We had an amazing lunch with Juan, the best Mexican food we have eaten. Juan is a master guide, really smart in many ways! Book now as he is in great demand.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Jeff, Yes, the Dolores Olmedo Museum is so underrated but as you saw, it really deserves more attention! Thank you very much for your kind words. Hope you guys are doing well!

We really enjoyed the places that Juan took us, particularly the Dolores Olmedo house.He provided all of the tickets that we needed to visit Frida Kahlo's and Diego Rivera's home. He imparted a lot of interesting Information & didn't rush us. His knowledge of English is excellent. Great tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Carolyn, It was a pleasure to be your tour guide :) I wish more people were interested in visiting the Dolores Olmedo Museum! It is truly a wonderful hidden place in the south of the city and as you noticed, Frida and Diego fans will enjoy it. Hope you and your husband had a safe flight back home!

Juan was a prince and a prize. Renee and I enjoyed the company and insights of not only Juan, but also his good friend and driver Edgar (aka David, aka Eddie). It was a special day they gave us, and Renee and I both think it was well worth it. The showed us Mexico City like we would never have seen it without their guidance. We would both jump at the chance to do it again. Thank you, guys. -Steve
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Steve, We had a blast with you guys! Being with both of you is so much fun. Time really flies when you have a good time and that's exactly what we felt! Thank you for sharing stories with us and the advice. I really take everything into consideration to make sure I keep getting better. Let me know if you come back to the city!

Following the Steps of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera with Juan was beyond our expectations. It was a highlight of our vacation. Juan's expertise combined with his attentiveness to our needs truly made it a wonderful day. For English speaking people, his command of the language is excellent. Juan is truly a cut above.
We had a Coyoacán, Frida Kahlo and Leon Trotsky tour with Juan. He was absolutely amazing! Knowledgeable, respectful, flexible and with great sense of humor. He and his driver were able to accommodate to our very limited time for the tour. They went above and beyond and went to reserve a table at a nice restaurant for us while we were enjoying the Frida Kahlo museum, because we were short on time. Thank you Juan for a memorable day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Olga! Thank you for the awesome review. I really enjoyed being with you and your family in Coyoacan, and Trotsky's house. You have a wonderful family! Hope to see you all again in Mexico City someday.
Juan was an excellent guide and host Great value in a full day visiting a range of connected places

Juan S. is a consummate tourism professional who is certified by the Ministry of Tourism in Mexico. He is punctual, immensely knowledgeable of the history and culture of CDMX (Mexico City), adept in English and Spanish, personable, and flexible. In addition, he possesses a positive outlook, a good sense of humor, and overall "good energy." It was our pleasure being in his company for 16 hours across two days of extensive itineraries. We would book another tour with Juan S. without hesitation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Michael! I really appreciate your kind words. Time flies when you have fun and it is always a real pleasure to meet people like you guys. Hope you had a safe flight back home. Let me know if you come back someday!

We enjoyed every aspect of our time with Juan, and highly recommend him and this tour, we are big fans of Frida and Diego and Juan was very knowledgeable on their lives and every other aspect of the tour. We enjoy walking and the pace and locations visited exceeded our expectations. We will be sure to try and book another tour with him if we are able to return to Mexico City.

We had a fabulous day with Juan. He's knowledgable and fun; an intellectual who also understands the cultural vibe. He took us into endless secret pockets of the area and we did everything from: museums to churros, veggie food to arty shops. We felt we knew Frida and Diego too by the end of the day. Juan's English is excellent and he is passionate about the city - which makes the day fly by. Highly recommend. The Cobains UK

Our visit to the Cayoacan and San Angel neighborhoods was our 2nd tour with Juan. We booked specifically to see the Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera residences, museums and studios, but we were able to see so much more. Saturday was "the" day to experience the markets, both outdoor vendors and higher end retail stores. We discovered that San Angel is a very charming neighborhood and a go-to must. We enjoyed tacos, churros and Mexican soda and fruit drinks. All in all a jam packed, wonderful day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Regina! Thank you very much for your kind words. Showing you and Megan one of my favorite neighborhoods like San Angel was a real pleasure. I had a wonderful time with you and definitely would like to see you both someday back in the always hectic but amazing Mexico City!

Juan was able to design our day to keep everyone happy and is just such a nice travel companion. He absolutely loves his city and knows so much about it. He is flexible and knowledgeable. I highly recommend using him for your future tours; you will definitely not be disappointed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi TJ! Thank you very much for your kind words. I had a great experience with your lovely family. Hope to see your family and Aaron's back in Mexico City someday!
Juan was a very professional guide with wonderful spoken English. He was very accommodating and flexible with the stops on the tour, ensuring I tried local tacos and churros - amazing! We did a mixture of driving and walking which suited me. I loved the gardens of the Dolores Olmedo Museum and the grounds of Frida's family home. Overall, it was a wonderful day full of art, history and culture. Thank you Juan
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words, Stephanie! I´m glad to know that you enjoyed the Frida and Diego tour (and the churros!) in the south of the city. Enjoy your stay in Mexico City!
