Some hours between two flights? A day free during a work visit? An introduction to the city before digging deeper? Mexico City is too fascinating to waste your time in a hotel, airport or office building!

If you have between five hours and a full day, contact me to design a tailor made tour according to your interests: colonial remains of the city, typical food of Mexican gastronomy, churches, the archeological sites, folklore and markets, a hike in nature or bike through the city, not to forget more than a dozen of interesting museums. . .

Want to be at the pyramids of Teotihuacan at 8 am? Want to say goodbye to Mexico city with mariachis and a cantina beer? What about a tequila tasting to sleep well on your connecting flight? Everything is possible. You won't regret your time spent here. Bet you will be back soon?


Contact me to design an interesting program for you in function of your time available.

Jonas was a great guide. He picked us up from the airport and returned us. We are so grateful for the time we had in Mexico City. His extensive knowledge on the area, people, local markets, history, architecture etc is brilliant! Thank you Jonas!
