We tour was great with pickup at our hotel on schedule. Our guide Juan was amazing. Besides what was included in our tour he added a few other highlights which we thoroughly enjoyed. We learned a lot about the history of Mexico and its culture. We even went for a short subway ride which is something we would not have done on our own. I would highly recommend this tour as a great introduction to Mexico City..

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Vita! I really appreciate your kind words about the tour. The view from the top of the Latino Tower was definitely a highlight that day! Thank you very much for everything. Hope you had a safe flight back home!

If you are looking for a guide who is extremely knowledgeable, intensely passionate about history and art, incredibly friendly, endlessly patient and an absolute delight to spend the day with, then Juan is the guide for you. Juan curated the most memorable day where we learned so much about the cultural history of the city, all while having tons of fun doing it. I can not recommend him highly enough.

Juan was a really excellent guide for the day. Extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his country. He listened to what we were interested in and adjusted the day to suit us. A really nice guy despite being an Arsenal fan ��

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Nigel! I wish we had spent more time with you and the rest of your party. Hopefully you'll come back to the city someday to explore some other interesting places here or in Puebla (you were also great despite being a Manchester City fan haha). Saludos!

Juan was fantastic. His English is outstanding and his knowledge and passion for Mexico and its history were impressive. We saw some amazing sites and learned about the history, the people and how it has shaped modern Mexico. We couldn't be happier with the service we received from Juan, he was charming, enthusiastic and courteous and we felt completely safe at all times. We were sad to say goodbye and wish him every success in is the future.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Stuart, Thank you very much for your words and wishes, I truly appreciate it! It would be great to see you guys again in Mexico City someday. It was great to meet you both!

It was a great day! Juan was amazing! His English was perfect, his knowledge was great, and the custom tour he created for us showed us the best sights during the day and wrestling at night. Would recommend him to anyone, you can't do any better in Mexico City!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola David, I had a blast with you the whole day guys! Thank you for sharing the secrets of eternal youth by the way haha. Hope you and Rick had a safe flight back home. Regards, Juan

Juan was a great guide. He was flexible with my schedule as I arrived into Mexico City in the afternoon, but was still able to get me around to the main sites. He was engaging and passionate about Mexican history and current events. He had great recommendations on places to visit and where to eat good local food. Would definitely recommend hiring him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Paul. Thank so much for your kind words. I had a great time exploring the highlights of the city with you. Hope to see you again in Mexico someday.

We were able to customize our city tour based on things we wanted to see/do/eat in Mexico. Juan was able to quickly plan out a day that hit as many of the things as possible. He was always very considerate in ensuring that our needs were met (one of our family is vegan). For the things we couldn't see, he was quick to follow up with an email on recommendations that we could do on our final day in the city without him. Great way to see experience the city!

My husband and I had an amazing day touring with Juan. Thanks to his thoughtful planning we were able to visit major tourist sites with comfort and ease. His knowledge of Mexico's history brought to life stories we had only read in books. He showed us hidden gems of the city which we never would have found on our own. More importantly he's a great guy who made us feel at home here in Mexico City.

Date: Jul 25/19

The visit to the Zocolo was impressive, the Museum of Templo Mayor is world Class. The visit to the Palacio de Bellas Artes is fanatastic for its murals. But if your a mural fan of Diego Rivera then you must visit the mural at the Museo Mural Diego Rivera( so glad Juan suggested the visit) and the the murals at the Palacio Nacional. Juan is a great tour guide and his enthusiasm for his country and its culture is most evident.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Glenn! Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad to know that you enjoyed Diego's murals. I had a wonderful time exploring the highlights of the Zocalo with you. Hope you're doing well!

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.

I travelled to Mexico City on a 16 hour layover with my 3 children in their 20's on our way to Costa Rica for great adventure. It was an amazing trip with Mexico City being a fabulous highlight of history, beauty, culture and wealth. Juan was a fantastic tour guide. He was great with my kids and made the tour enjoyable for us all. We loved being with Juan and felt like he was a part of our family. Juan is flexible, easy to understand, kind and very knowledgable.

Our 5 hour walking tour of Mexico City with Juan was great. He's an excellent "ambassador" of Mexico with a genuine enthusiasm for sharing the history and culture of his city and country. Juan's English is impeccable and idiomatic. His knowledge of history is extensive and he uses a great approach: e.g. overview using city maps and archeological models prior to taking us to the actual sites. The whole tour was well-paced; we loved exploring old Mexico City sites on foot with Juan. He's a sure bet!

We booked two-days of tours with Juan, this one and "Off the Beaten Path." This was a perfect combination, as we were able to mix up each day's itineraries (when the Presidential Palace was closed for an event one day, we could go on the next) and we could make suggestions (like the Mercado de San Juan). We feel as if we got a great sense of Mexico City. Juan is enthusiastic, knowledgeable and flexible. We would be happy to use him again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Kathleen. Thank you for such a nice review. It was a pleasure to show you the highlights of the city and to be part of your birthday celebration in Mexico City! I really enjoy meeting travelers like you who are eager to experience new dishes and flavors. The San Juan Market was a very interesting experience! Hope you and your husband are doing well. Regards, Juan

Juan is an amazing tour guide with a lot of energy and knowledge that he is willing to share without sounding like a text book. He loves his city and it shows. We were exposed to so much and yet it left so much more to explore. It only encouraged us to return to places to experience them with more time on our own, but he manages to give you the basics of a centuries old history and does it with just the amount of information you need, and has more to share if you have the questions.
