Hector was a wonderful guide! I was traveling with my 13 year old daughter and 70+ mother and aunt. He led us on a walking tour that addressed all our interests, with several nice breaks along the way. From art to architecture and history he was a wealth of information and a very pleasant gentleman. I highly recommend Hector for your touring experience!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Karmyn. It was a pleasure to tour all of you and a very pleasant news that you are from Iowa. Thank you for your patience and understanding. I had a great time and I hope to see you back in Mexico City soon. Best regards. Hector

Perfect overcast weather for a tour of the pyramids. Hector took the time to explain the history and lore of the region. He allowed us the folly of climbing to the top of both the Pyramid of the Sun and Moon, carefully measuring our steps on the uneven stairs. Off to Alcolman, a church of unusual architecture and rituals, where the priests would share out from a balcony to the Indians. The basilica was our last stop to see the original Virgin of Guadalupe portrait. Amazing! Thank you again, Hector!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: This was a truly fun tour. Starting with Mary´s confusion with tours by locals name, that gave way to a very friendly and relax journey. I will always remember Mary´s jingle for Aeroméxico. Mary, Erika and you were just great travellers and even better travel companions.

Another lovely day with our guide, Hector, this time exploring the pristinely maintained Chapultapec Castle and two other art museums in the area. Hector accommodated my wife's knee issues by having her access a secret elevator to the top of the castle. He then skillfully guided us through several centuries of indigenous and later Spanish and Mexican history through the exhibits in the museum. Later, Hector introduced us another great Mexican artist, Leonora Carrington. We soaked in the day with coffee.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a very lovely day indeed. Mary liked the castle very much and all of us had a great time with Carrington´s show. Thank you agai for your company and generosity

My sister joined my wife and me on this tour of some of the most beautiful areas in the San Angel and Coyoacán, a little like the South Pasadena area in Southern California, according to our guide, Hector. He guided us through homes featuring unusual architecture, along with a beautiful church and the unique marketplace, Bazaar del Sábado in the San Angel region. We got our money's worth when we took in the markets of Coyoacán and ended with a delicious meal at one of the restaurants by the zocalo. Bravo!

Hector was actually a few minutes early to our hotel. He was particularly effective as our guide because he polled us before starting as to our interests and then routed us to where would take in the most. We love art and history, so he was able to show us the great murals—some of them hidden away in buildings that were off the beaten path. He introduced us to works by some marvelous muralists we had not even heard of, whose works were well-worth our time. Excellent command of his subject, and his guests!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bruce and Mary. Thank you for a delightful morning. I was very nice to do the tour in Spanish, both of you have a great command of it. I am glad you enjoy the murals, it is always a pleasure to tour visitor like you who appreciate our cultural heritage. Best regards

Hector was an absolutely outstanding tour guide. Very knowledgeable of history, mexican culture, and a fascinating person too with interesting stories and thoughts. We are so grateful that we had him guiding us through the tour.

Hector guided us in that journey and we will certainly remember him for years to come. Thank you Hector!

Hector arrived early and gave us a quick orientation in the lobby of the hotel and asked us about our interests. His knowledge of Mexican history, architecture and art was outstanding and he was flexible in responding to our interests and modifying his plans accordingly. He made a detour to the old ashkanazi synagogue which we requested to see. He was generous in sharing his knowledge and recommendations for other places we planned to visit. A great visit to the hidden gems of the historical centre.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Garth and Neville. Thank you so much for a charming morning and sharing with me your travel experiences and life in South Africa. Enjoy your visit to PV and the company of your friends there. Best regards Hector

Hector was exactly what we were looking for! As previous visitors to the city, we wanted a guide to help us dive deeper - to gain a better understanding than we could ever attain on our own. Hector is incredibly knowledgeable, and sensed very quickly what we wanted to focus on - architecture, history, art. He showed us many hidden-away places we would never have found. He was charming and interesting in his own right.
