Jonas offered a very interesting architectural tour which added to our already developed and nurtured love of modern Mexican buildings. Jonas is committed to searching out the best examples in Mexico City and environs and deeply and articulately admires the talent of Mexican architects and designers. He also made many suggestions for further study. Thank you for a fascinating peek into the richness of modern Mexico.

I am so glad we took Mexico City Architecural Tour with Jonas. We would've never seen so much of this city's diversity in one day if it weren't for Jonas. He took us to places we could've never find out as they were off the trodden tourist paths. His genuine interest in architecture not only of the past, but especially of the present made this experience very fulfilling. I am happy Jonas talked us into going to the Chopo museum which we initially wanted to skip, and to the library. Thank you, Jonas!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It certainly was a full and dense program and i thanks you for your flexibility and interest until the end!

Our tour of architectural masterpieces ld by Jonas was just what we hoped for. The Baragan convent, the Baragan Casa Gilardi, the library, and several other buildings helped us see how Mexico City valued great architecture, especially modernist. Jonas was knowledgable, articulate, friendly, and a good driver, all important for a long tour in this megalopolis. Thank you, Jonas.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks to You Walter for your inspiring interest and enthusiasm.

We had a GREAT tour with Jonas V! There were four of us and Jonas met all our expectations! He adjusted the schedule to suit us; was knowledgeable about the history, art and architecture in Mexico City. We will recommend him to all our friends!

Jonas was very knowledgeable and personable. This is not a 5 star review because we had some trouble with traffic and places being closed due to Mothers Day. It was a little disappointing. I really enjoyed learning about Luis Barragan. An architect I was not familiar with. We also had a chance to tour a contemporary fire station.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Yes David, it turned out to be a complicated day with all government controlled buildings being abandoned early by staff running home to celebrate their mothers. Thanks for your appreciation of the few highlights we could visit anyway.
Jonas is really a great guy. He was so enthusiastic and always ready to reply our in-numerous questions. He is very well travelled and that gives him an ability to understand what each traveller is looking for and adjust to this.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The first time someone specifically appreciates my flexibility through knowledge, thanks Nikos!
The tour Jonas organized for us was not only the best architectural tour, but one of the best tours of any kind that I have ever been on. Jonas took us to buildings from nearly every period in Mexico's history, with a concentration on modern architecture. We would now recommend this tour to anyone from visiting architects to just interested tourists. It was a great way to appreciate the buildings, the city and the people. Jonas had done his research and was friendly, flexible and thoughtful throughout.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a delight discovering so many beautiful places with your happy family!
