Carlos is an excellent local guide, informative and adapts the tour to meet the traveller's needs. We spent most of the tour at the Templo Mayor (spectacular), which you could spend days. A quick walk through the rest of the proposed tour/Centro Historico left us wanting more.

Carlos is a great guide, period. His knowledge in Mexican history and trivia is quite extensive and there was never a dull moment during our day. He's also a very safe and aware driver which kept us at ease during the drives between sites in the city traffic. This is the guide you want and we will definitely be asking for his services again in the future.

Carlos is patient, kind and knowledgeable. My family of five enjoyed out tour of Centro Historico. Carlos answered our many questions about the history of Mexico. He took us to a great lunch spot. He even modified the tour a bit to keep my teenage son engaged. We covered a lot of ground and learned so much.

Wonderful tour with Carlos! It was my first time in Mexico City, so I wanted a personal guide to show me the Centro. Carlos met me at my hotel near the airport, we took the Metrobus to the Zocolo and he conducted me through Mexican history via the Aztec Temple, Cathedral and Rivera murals. On to China Town and a food mercado with bugs, worms and scorpions available for cooking classes!

Our tour guide was perfect. He was on time to pick us up at the airport. He was extremely knowledgeable and very experienced. We only had 4 hours between flights but in four hours saw the beautiful Zokola and had a wonderful dinner at a beautiful restaurant. I have used Carlos before five years ago and he remembered me. I would like to spend more time in Mexico City and plan to do so next trip to Huatulco.

This is an excellent way to get a in-depth introduction to Mexico City -- informative and enjoyable for anyone visiting Mexico City and a must for all first time visitors. Our guide, Carlos, was simply wonderful. His depth of knowledge about the city and it history is impressive, his English is excellent, and his presentation is interesting, informative and fun. He showed us several interesting places I'm sure we wouldn't have seen on most tours. We had a terrific time with Carlos.

Carlos was both passionate and incredibly knowledgable of all stops on the tour itinerary. Carlos was also able to blend in an aspect with a personal touch touch by stopping and enjoying some street food with my wife and myself and also sampling ceviche and aquachile in the San Juan Market. I would heartily recommend this tour with Carlos as your guide. You will learn things about Mexican history, anthropology, and architecture that will be totally enthralling plus exposure to local culture and color

Our first toursbylocals. Defintely will do again. Carlos was on-time, knowledgeable, friendly, and sensitive to special needs. Templo mayor was the highlight, but loved it all, including Rivera murals in National Palace, San Juan market, architecture and history.

Carlos was amazing! Picked up from the airport it couldn't have been more convenient. He knows and loves his city and it shows. I was a women traveling by myself and couldn't have felt safer or in better hands. I highly recommend him.

Carlos was a fantastic tour guide and clearly the 3 hours we had was not enough to explore all of the historic center of Mexico City. So much history in a few square blocks. We highly recommend Carlos!

It was a pleasure spending an afternoon with Carlos. He was knowledgeable, courteous, and gave us a great feel for a very exciting new city and country that was brand new to us and that we had a very limited amount of time to explore on our own. Our time together was time very well spent. Thank you Carlos!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Marilyn it was a pleasure for me to give you an introduction to this city. Thank you for the opportunity

Carlos was a welcome sight when we arrived at the airport. Our plane was late but he monitored our arrival and communicated with us that he would be there to get us. What a joy it was to see him holding a sign with our name on it. Carlos took extra care to introduce us to his country. He provided us with some options for our tour and gave us an outstanding driving tour, then time to unload our luggage at our hotel and then he gave us a walking tour. A perfect introduction to Mexico thanks to Carlos!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Toni I hope that you were able to get oriented in the city and this introductory tour helped you in your short visit and exploring

Carlos was well-informed, enthusiastic, flexible, helpful, and showed us a family-oriented restaurant in the busy Central area of Mexico City that we would never have known to visit. We were very confident with him, and admired his skill at moving through crowded and gritty areas. We are very pleased.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your positive review Marjorie. Thank you

Carlos!!!!! With only 4 hours to spend on a whirlwind tour and shopping adventure, I had the perfect experience. My 240 minute excursion included some local shopping, some historical sightseeing, some neighborhood scenery and some GREAT conversation and learning. Carlos is a VERY experienced guide who is willing to be as flexible as you need. His knowledge and suggestions were perfect. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants a reliable, friendly (very fluent english speaking) tour guide. THANKS!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Jay for all your possitive comments of my work.

Our family had ~6 hours layover in Mexico City Airport. The tour by Carlos is the best use of our time. In a short time frame (~4 hours), we toured the key places in Zocalo (Cathedral, National Palace, Mayor Office, Templo Mayor, etc). I don't think we can drive ourselves with the city traffic, and we don't speak Spanish either. Carlos gave us a good tour with his in-depth knowledge about history and culture. Wish we could stay longer (airport to Zocalo is ~45 minutes one way) and visited more museums.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank´s Bryan I hope that your next visit to Mexico will include Mexico City, I´m glad that you had a great time in my city just like I had a great time with you and your family. Thanks a lot.
