My husband and I reached out to Jonas for a customized 2-day itinerary. We wanted food, architecture, history, art and anything else that would make our first visit to Mexico City a good one. Jonas hit it out of the ball park!! He set up an inclusive, but flexible schedule that let us move around the city with ease with taste-testings, market visits, museum visits and even a canal ride. We were privileged to see special exhbits and explore sites off the beaten path. Thank you, Jonas!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Glad to join you on this easy-going introduction to Mexico, I hope the first of more explorations to come! Hope you enjoyed the F1 race as well!
Jonas was/is a very good guide with a lot of knowledge. As we speak french & german he knows both an we were all happy. We can fully recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Nice to have three enthusiast generations on board, have an excellent further trip through Mexico!
Jonas offered a very interesting architectural tour which added to our already developed and nurtured love of modern Mexican buildings. Jonas is committed to searching out the best examples in Mexico City and environs and deeply and articulately admires the talent of Mexican architects and designers. He also made many suggestions for further study. Thank you for a fascinating peek into the richness of modern Mexico.

Jonas was a fantastic guide! From start to finish he was professional, picking us up on time and having a well organized but not rigid itinerary. His detailed knowledge of anthropology, archaeology, and the history of the area made the tour a very memorable and informative one. In retrospect a visit to Teotihuacan without a guide would have been far a less enjoyable and enriching experience. If your travels take you to Mexico City I would highly recommend checking Jonas' availability!!

Jonas was great! He was informative of both historical and cultural considerations with an easy-going demeanor of the pyramids. He took us to an excellent restaurant for lunch and was generous with a little extra time so we could get the full experience. Was also able to give some suggestions of things to do post-tour. Excellent all around :)
Fernando MaciasAurora, CO, United States
What a great trip! Jonas made our trip to Teotihuacan incredible. He's great explaining all the history and relevant details of the pyramids. Without him, it would have been very easy to overlook critical information. We had a delicious lunch after our trip and we always felt that Jonas went above and beyond. We hope we have the opportunity to travel with Jonas again. Thank you Jonas!

Had a fantastic day with Jonas exploring beautiful, colourful Mexico City and Teotihuacán! His love for his city is inspiring, and there wasn't a question he couldn't answer. He also recommended the most awesome street food! A wonderful experience with a knowledgeable, passionate local guide!
An amazing amount seen and learned during a long layover, which would otherwise have been miserable. Jonas was such a casual wealth of knowledge and the historic center of Mexico City on a saturday evening was fantastic. Absolutely loved it!

Very enjoyable 1:1 cycling introduction to Mexico City on an electric bike which was a new experience! Jonas combined historical info with modern architecture and an intro to mouth watering sweet tamale and coffee in a small cafe run by indigenous people. The cycling was a mix of cycle lanes and roads with some weaving around traffic so this is a trip for confident cyclists, which give a good feel for the city and its varied architecture. Thanks Jonas, definitely worth repeating!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Glad to have shared this intro to México City in an original way, thanks for your review!

I am so glad we took Mexico City Architecural Tour with Jonas. We would've never seen so much of this city's diversity in one day if it weren't for Jonas. He took us to places we could've never find out as they were off the trodden tourist paths. His genuine interest in architecture not only of the past, but especially of the present made this experience very fulfilling. I am happy Jonas talked us into going to the Chopo museum which we initially wanted to skip, and to the library. Thank you, Jonas!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It certainly was a full and dense program and i thanks you for your flexibility and interest until the end!

Amazing guide and very knowledgeable. Really enjoyed our day in Xochimilco seeing the markets and the canals. Would highly recommend this tour guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Christian, nice to hear you enjoyed also your own explorations based on my recommendations!

Had an awesome experience! Jonas was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed not only learning about Mexico but learning about him too!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Loved rediscovering your roots with you!
Jessica SmallUnited States
Jonas was an absolutely incredible guide. He made our experience above and beyond anything we could hope for.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks! My humbleness obliges me to say that the city itself steals good part of the show as well;)

I take a lot of private tours when I travel and Jonas was one of the best tour guides I've had anywhere. We spent most of our day at the Anthropology Museum. We didn't just see artifacts at the museum, Jonas brought the movements of the different groups of people across geography and through time to life - their interactions, politics, belief systems, art styles. It was both memorable and fascinating! I'm already talking to people about returning to Mexico City and hiring Jonas.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Carol, fascinating to be with such interested people like you, see you back soon!

Jonas is an excellent tour guide. My family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed our trip with him to the pyramids. He is so knowledgeable about the area and answered all our questions. Jonas picked a great lunch spot with some Aztec items on the menu. He navigated the traffic patiently and expertly. The pace of the tour was just right. And Jonas is fun to be with which made the day so enjoyable. Don't think twice about booking a tour with him. It's worth it.
Marty RoseUnited States
Jonas was excellent! He was very knowledgeable about everything we saw at the Anthropology Museum and the Templo Mayor, accommodating, and all around fun to be with. He started the tour by giving us options depending on what we wanted to get out of the tour in terms of number of sights, amount and depth of historical information, etc. He also took us to an excellent place for lunch and even gave us great suggestions for our trip to Puebla. We'll definitely find him again when we're back in Mexico!

This was a superb tour... beautifully crafted, taking us through the long history of the pyramids. We spend a almost whole day with Jonas and he is one of the best tour guide we ever had.He went to great lengths to provide us with experiences much beyond expectations. Thank You Jonas and keep up a great work .
Jonas was an ideal guide for our small group. We did a Centro Historico tour with him that hit very interesting cultural, food and architectural high points that was the perfect balance with high level overview peppered with the kind of detail you wouldn't see on your own. We recommend him for being easy going, loaded full of knowledge for his adopted home, and ability to observe our interests and bend the day towards them.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, enjoyed my time with you, let's hope we can spend more time together on your next visit, to explore more hidden wonders of this city!
