Hector was an excellent guide full of knowledge regarding Barragan . He answered questions with great clarity and provided details regarding Barragan's architectural style. Hector suggested a terrific place for cafe and snack in between the two properties. He willingly shared general info about Mexico City and also had a great sense of humor. I will definitely schedule a future tour with Hector when I return to this great city!
