Juan was simply outstanding. He tailored the details of the tour to our interests and his knowledge of history was exceptional. He even came prepared with photos to help explain the development of the Xochimilco canal system. We have traveled extensively and Juan is one of the top guides that we have encountered anywhere.

Juan is a fantastic guide. His knowledge of Mexican history is impressive and profound. He is extremely personable and adept at crafting the tour to our interests. He gave us unique insight into Mexico City, and in our one week trip our tour with Juan definitely counted as a highlight!

Juan is very knowledgeable of the history and culture of the region, of Mexico and the world in general. He is passionate, articulate and fluent in English. He listens carefully to his clients and adjusts his focus and level of detail in response to the clients inquiry. He is very respectful and, best of all, he is fun to be with!

Great tour! Juan provided great insight into everywhere we went, is very personable, and went out of his way to make sure we had a good experience. We went places and saw things that exceeded my expectations I recommend Juan to anyone who wants to learn about these historic areas in southern Mexico City.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola David! It was a pleasure to spend the day with you and Caroline. Hope she had a great time celebrating her birthday in the south of the city! I learnt a lot from both of you and wish you the best!
Juan is an energetic and knowledgeable tour guide. He shared a lot of stories about the region in Xochimilo, Coyoacán, San Angel and some Catholics history. He also knows where we can take good pictures and recommends good restaurant with reasonable price. He speaks English well and is easy to understand. It is very nice to have him as our tour guide. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Yueh! Thank you very much for the nice review! Hope you had a safe flight back home. Send my regards to your family!

Juan is an excellent guide! If you are thinking about booking a tour with him, do it. He has a warm, engaging personality and makes the trip fun. We learned so much about the history of the area, and he knew where to find some really good food. We probably wouldn't have stopped at the UNAM on our own, but we really enjoyed our stop there. And the boat ride at Xochimilco was a highlight of our whole trip to Mexico City.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Brenda! Thank you so much for your fantastic review. It was a great way to finish the year! Wish you and your family the best!

WOW! This tour was just what I was looking for while visiting Mexico City. Juan was an excellent guide--very professional, considerate and organized. And he shared his extensive knowledge of Mexican history with enthusiasm. The highlight for me was our quiet morning cruise on a Xochimilco canal with no other boats around! The walking tours of UNAM, Coyocan and San Angel were both informative and enjoyable. David is a very safe driver and the car was new and comfortable. I highly recommend this tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Kate! It was certainly a great day in the south of the city! Xochimilco in the morning is just awesome. I also learned a lot from you on that day. Thank you very much for everything. By the way, my plants are still alive! I guess I am ready for a fish now haha. Saludos!

Juan was amazing. Super knowledgable,passionate about his city and his country , kind and patient. He gave us more than we expected (showed us sites off the beaten path). I would definitely reconnect him for other tours when we come back to Mexico.

As a fan of Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo this was a must do trip south of the City. We toured San Angel which was very quaint and Coyoacan to see the Frida Museum, Trotsy house, and the Dolores Olmedo Museum which was beautiful. Juan was a great tour guide, knows the history well and makes you feel like part of the family. We had a great visit.
William EdgertonUnited States
Juan was a very knowledgeable and dedicated guide, who was flexible to our needs. He was always making sure we were very comfortable and content. I would recommend him for any of his tours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello William, It was a pleasure to show you guys the south of the city. Hope it met your expectations! I am glad to know that you enjoyed the tour. That´s always very rewarding to me. Best wishes, Juan
Wesley McGeeUnited States
Juan was an exceptional guide. Wish I could give him ten stars. He is very enthusiastic about Mexico's history and loves sharing that history with others. Juan is very personable and patient, allowing us extra time in the Coyoacán market while my son looked for a souvenir. He's a great driver and knows how to navigate the CDMX traffic. Bonus points to him for entertaining my broken Spanish. This was a GREAT tour, accentuated by Juan's great personality and knowledge.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Wesley, I really appreciate your kind words. I had a lot of fun with you and your family in Coyoacan eating churros. I was very surprised to see all the slang in Spanish that you already knew haha. Te felicito! Hope you had a safe flight back home and keep up listening to real metal music!
Ayelet LiptonUnited States
If I could give Juan a 10 out of 5 I would! So friendly, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about the history of Mexico. Taught me more than I can remember! Also has a car with a/c which is wonderful! My son, who is 11 LOVED him! He catered our tour to our interests and answered ALL of our questions and more. He got us so excited about Mexico City that we plan on returning and hiring him again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Ayelet! Thank you very much for your kind words. It was a pleasure to show you the highlights of the south of the city. I still can´t believe how clever your son is and how much he knows about basketball! It would be great to see you both again in the city someday. Best wishes, Juan

Excellent tour with well prepared guide. He had planned the day so we saw things we had hoped to see—and several stops we had not heard of and enjoyed. Really a good day. Juan is good company and we enjoyed our day immensely.
Juan gave us a wonderful tour of Xochimilco, San Angel and Coyoacan including visits to Diego Rivera Museum and Frida Kahlo Studio. Juan arrived on time and his vehicle was very comfortable. He spoke fluent English and had a strong background in the Arts. His friendly nature and sense of humour added to our day's enjoyment. We have recommend him as a guide to our friends visiting Mexico City.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Brian. It was a pleasure to show you and your wife's the highlights of the south of the city. I really appreciate your words and your support. It would be great to see your friends in Mexico City someday!

very interesting tour of neighborhoods in the southern part of the city, which we hadn't visited previously. Such a range - from the Inca-era canal system to Cortez' villa, to the Kahlo/Rivera heritage of more modern times. Juan is also very thoughtful about bathroom breaks, snack times and so forth. Best of all, he doesn't waste time in souvenir shops! Thank you, Juan.
