The tour with Carlos was the absolute highlight of our holiday in Mexico City - a truly unforgettable experience! Carlos took us to various buildings by Luis Barragán and showed us the various details of his architecture - as a guide Carlos is very flexible, friendly and takes great pride in showing the architectural masterpieces of Mexico about which he is very knowledgeable and able communicate with a distinct personal interest. A must for people with an interest in Mexican art and architecture.

The best, Carlos is a true find and treasure
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank a lot Nathaniel it was my pleasure to share with you the Luis Barragan`s work. It is great having visitors as yourself so appreciative of the places we visited. Thank a lot again
We enjoyed our time with you Carlos. Thank you for being flexible. I appreciated that you took the time find where the graffiti art by ROA was for us. We enjoyed looking at the murals at the Ministry of Education building too. The final two Luis Barragán locations were wonderful.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Lucia as a professional tour guide it is a pleasure for me to modify itineraries even on the go as we did. I was also able to be introduced to ROA which I didn't knew before

Carlos guided me through the architecture of Barragan with information, care, support and flexibility. When the area was difficult to maneuver, he was supportive. When I wanted to explore on my own, he was patient. For all of my questions he had answers. A whole day together was pleasant because of his soft spoken manner, excellent English, love of his city and comfortable car. I would recommend him to friends visiting Mexico City.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Marilyn I am glad that we could include the buildings that you were expecting to see.

A couple of usual tour sites were not available, but Carlos was willing and able to find great substitutes when we told him about our interests. He was knowledgeable about the places he showed us, and we enjoyed our tour. In addition to seeing some great architecture, we found our conversation very educational, and feel we have a much better understanding of contemporary Mexican society than we could have gained on our own. A very positive experience all around; we recommend touring with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Susan for your positive comments specially cause you and your husband are architects, it really means a lot to me such a positive feedback.

Another fabulous day with Carlos! It is obvious that he is listening to all we say as we continually get to see some special sights and go to special restaurants based on things we have told him over the last three days we have spent with him. His recommendations for restaurants after we leave him are over the top! His attention to detail, patience, kindness, humor and knowledge has got to be second to none. Tomorrow is our final tour with Carlos and we already feel we will miss our dear friend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm now already missing all of you my dear friends.

We had a great day out with Carlos. We chose a tour of modern Mexico and visited 3 great houses from Luis Barragan. What a discovery! I was very keen about the murals at the university and we managed to fit them in. Thank you very much Carlos for the great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Marie thanks a lot for your comments I'm glad you're a Barragan fan now.

This was one of our favorite days in Mexico City. Carlos took us into several of Barragan's buildings, including his house and studio, one of his later houses, and an extraordinarily beautiful chapel that is difficult to access. We felt this tour was well worth the expense given it would be practically impossible to visit the variety and number of sites we saw in just one day. Carlos is very accommodating and a great guide to work with. This tour is perfect for anyone with a love of 20th c art and design
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It is special for me Catie that your opinion of this tour is favorable to me because you are a college teacher and I´m so happy that I could show you a little bit of Mexican 20th century architecture.
The visits to the Barragan Houses and Legoretta Hotel were terrific and Carlos was a great guide, both informative and professional whilst also personable and easy going. As first time vistors although experienced travellers, Carlos made our first full day a thoroughly memorable one and we'd hav no problem recommending the trip to those interested in contemporary 20th century architecture that remains fantastic to this day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Robert it is great to have clients so knowledgable like you it´s inspiring.
The Modern architecture is the highlight our sightseeing tour in DF. Carlos knows the history inside out and it was good to have a guide like him. Well done Carlos
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Juliana it was a great experience to meet you both and I hope you return soon to Mexico City, there are more things to see.
