Monica is a fantastic tour guide. She is extremely knowledgeable about Mexican art, architecture, history, and archaeology, and has a very efficient and effective way of communicating information on these subjects. I was particularly impressed with her knowledge and insight into the works of Diego Rivera and the history of the buildings in the Zocalo. Monica also goes out of her way to make her customers comfortable and happy. I highly recommend Monica to be your next tour guide.
Chuck M.United States
Monica provided us a full day of sights and education about Mexico's history. She was considerate of our interests and preferences. We particularly enjoyed her in-depth commentary on the works of Diego Rivera at the Palacio Nacional - so much so that we felt no need to delve into his work any further. She also provided details during the Templo Mayor tour that we were able to relate to another tour. Monica was engaging, interesting, and her English was excellent. We had a wonderful time.
Robin LinenUnited States
Monica was our guide for 2 days, including the Centro, Murals, Lucha Libre,Teotihuacan and the Anthropology Museum. We were a family of 8 and Monica was terrific.

Peggy ParkinsonUnited States
Monica is a delightful lady and extremely knowledgeable in every aspect of her tour. She amazed us. She also took the time to find out our interests so she could customize the tour. We could have spent days in the Historical Center in order to see it all. The architecture in Mexico City is beautiful and I highly recommend having a guide to explain what you are looking at, otherwise you will miss a lot. (You will be very lucky if you are able to book this tour with Monica)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I can hardly think of a more flattering testimonial!
Jo Ann G.United States
This was the first of three tours we took with Monica while we were in Mexico City. We had never been to Mexico City before, and this tour turned out to be an excellent introduction, just as Monica had promised. I was awestruck seeing the ruins of the Templo Mayor, and thoroughly charmed by the beautiful courtyards we encountered behind many of the building facades. Our idyllic lunch was on the terrace of a 16th-century mansion with a beautiful view of the cathedral. I highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm glad the tour happened to be good! It's has been great to have met you! My best regards!

We saw more in one day with Monica than we could have possibly done on our own. She know all the interesting places to see and was particularly helpful with the Diego Rivera murals.
Monica did an excellent job and was very well informed. We spent a beautiful afternoon walking the historical area and she was able to answer every question we could possibly ask. We never would have seen the city center in this depth. We hope to take another tour with Monica. Bob & Rose

Ronell KrielUnited States
What a gem we found when we contracted Monica to take us around in Mexico City! She was friendly,funny, wonderfully bilingual and so flexible. When one of the group started to feel unwell, she changed plans to accommodate that. She took us to see things we did not know we wanted to see. She was pleasant,good company and very well versed in the history of Mexico. She knew her way and delivered us in a safe and efficient way. Use Monica! She is excellent and competent.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It is good to know that all of you liked and enjoy the tour! The same way happened with me. Hope you can come back again!
Laurie BehrUnited States
On our first visit to Mexico City, the day-long tour of the city's historic center was simply amazing! Monica is very knowledgeable, insightful, and entertaining. She was more than able to answer our many questions regarding the history of Mexico City and also provided suggestions for shopping, restaurants, and other helpful hints. We anxiously look forward to booking another tour with her.
Very good tour. Monica was really accomodating and saw to my needs. I got what I expected from my day.

Linda BoggioUnited States
Monica was a experienced and knowledgeable tour guide. She was very receptive to our needs, which was particularly important because my mother, who is 83,is unable to walk long distances. She acquired a wheelchair for her at the museums we visited and paced herself to my mother's needs. At first, we had no idea of what a difference a private tour makes compared to a group tour. She made sure that we understood everything and answered all our questions. The private tour was well worth the extra expense.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I appreciate very much that you had a nice tour and liked it. I was delightful to be able to help with your mother's needs, specially because your mother is a lovely lady and she deserves the best.
Erica WeatherfordUnited States

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to be with you, especially knowing that you came to Mexico for history research, and I enjoyed it a lot. I'm so glad because we visited so many places and you were very nice and your interest gave me so much pleasure trying to show you the best.
John LushetskyUnited States
Monica is a great tour guide and host. She enthusiastically shares her knowledge for those of us who may be new to Mexico and it's art and culture. Besides the normal tour stops, she also took us to places that we would never have found on our own. She also is very flexible, presenting things so that my wife and I could understand but also making it very interesting for our 10 year old daughter. I think she's everything that someone would want from Tours by Local host.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I enjoyed very much being your tour guide and specially because I perceive your interest about Mexican Culture which makes me feel very happy. Mostly when Alexa said that her favorite city in the world was Mexico because it has a lot interesting places to visit. I think every tour is a magnificent experience because I have the chance to meet wonderful persons like you.
James GundersonUnited States
Monica has a true passion for her work. She is extremely knowledgeable about art, architecture, history throughout the eras from prehistory through the present. In addition, she is a delightful person to be with. She gave us tips about transportation, great restaurants, what to see in other parts of the city and when it is best to go. We had an absolutely delightful day, a perfect start to our visit to Mexico City. Monica has incredible information about Diego Rivera and the other muralists of the time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very delighted and pleased to find out your wonderful comments about your experience and my work. Thank you very much! Let me tell you that I enjoyed very much being with you and explaining you about Mexican History, mainly because you were also very interested and I appreciate it a lot.

As this was our first time in Mexico City and only having one full day to explore, we chose to book this tour with Monica. We would highly recommend her as Monica's warmth and professionalism made us feel really comfortable. Her English is excellent and we learned so much about the different historical buildings and museums that we were shown. Her knowledge of architecture brought everything to life for us and it was great walking everywhere. Would definitely book another tour with Monica.
