Carlos was an exceptional guide with tremendous knowledge of the Cuauhtinchan Archaeological Zone in Malinalco. His expertise -- developed over decades in the field -- deepened our awareness and appreciation for this important place, its people, and culture. We will definitely be returning to ToursByLocals.com for another tour of Mexico's ancient sites.
my tour with Carlos was beyond my expectations, he very quickly understood my personal preferences and whilst taking me to the places on his itinerary he tailored his comments for my art interests and always answered my questions with full knowledgeable answers. To me this tour opened up my eyes to the depth of what I was experiencing and I felt more confident exploring on my own as a result. Thank you Carlos for absolute care of a senior enquisitive artistic lady on her own. Rating 100

The Mexican Private City Walking Tour given to us by Carlos, was spectacular. His knowledge and presentation of his City Tour showed us how much he knows and loves his city. His descriptions of the early history of Mexico were like listening to a podcast! The detail in which he described Diego Rivera's murals would qualify him as a docent in ANY great art museum. The special added attraction was that he took us to the Justo Sierra Synagogue.

Carlos was a wonderful guide and teacher on this tour of the Frieda Kahlo and Diego Rivera sites. He is very informed and shares his knowledge freely. He was very flexible and responsive to our additional interests. This was a very special day for us. We recommend Carlos 100%.
Carlos is a 10-star guide. He structured our introduction to Mexico City tour beautifully, and with clarity and depth provided us with a richly layered story of the development of this remarkable city. His knowledge is profound and his manner charming and engaging.

Carlos was knowledgeable, personable, and a safe driver. We enjoyed a memorable afternoon with him, a true highlight of our holiday in Ciudad de Mexico.
Carlos was a wonderful guide on our visit to Teotihuacan. His extensive knowledge and interest made the tour very worthwhile and interesting. We would not hesitate recommending Carlos as a guide for anyone looking to improve their understanding of Mexican history and culture.

This is the perfect tour for wonks. Carlos knows an incredible amount about mesoamerican cultures, and you will learn so much from him. We really enjoyed getting a private tour, it was very comfortable and flexible. Highly recommended.

Amazing tour guide and trip!

Carlos was engaging and was able to provide an wealth of information about Mexico City. He knows his stuff. Brought us to a great restaurant. One issue about the whole day tour is you sit in Mexico traffic as sites we visited were pretty spread out. However, not something Carlos could control. It is just something to consider when choosing this specific tour.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: ToursByLocals is committed to 5-Star tour experiences and we appreciate any learning opportunity to improve the quality of the service we offer our customers. We take all feedback seriously and have, as always, attempted to clarify with our customer if there was anything our guide, or ToursByLocals, could have done differently to have made this tour a 5-Star experience.
Carlos is a professional tour guide. I booked the airport pickup at 7am and he actually arrived much earlier than our pickup time and thus we can start our tour in the early morning. He is very knowledgeable about the history and the stories of Teotihuacan. He tried his best to answer all of our questions and fulfill our needs during the whole tour. It is a very nice experience and a great start of our trip in Mexico.

My time with Carlos was worth every single cent of this trip. A consummate professional and quite friendly, Carlos completely made my trip incredibly smooth and enjoyable. He is such an asset to the ToursByLocals brand and, above that, a great guy. I cannot recommend Carlos highly enough. A great experience.

We had a wonderful tour with Carlos. He managed 5 of us, with some speaking English and some Spanish. His driving was great and we would certainly use him again if the chase arose.
Hannah CainUnited States
Carlos was a fantastic guide whose years of experience showed! Before the tour, he was extremely easy to work and communicate with. On the day of our tour, he showed up to our meeting point right on time and set expectations for the day's agenda super well. He was very knowledgeable about the region/park we visited and had an incredible insight on the life of the butterflies. Thank you, Carlos!
Brenda NelsonUnited States
Carlos was a great guide for Teotihuacan. He was very knowledgeable and very polite. He had a laid-back manner that we really appreciated. No problems with language at all. We don't speak Spanish but Carlos is a fluent English speaker. This has got to be the best way to see Teotihuacan. You get such more out of it than you would just going on your own, but it is much more personal than a large group tour, in that you get to tailor the tour a bit to your own interests and needs.
William LipsmanUnited States
Carlos planned the tour to include as many significant sights as possible, taking into consideration traffic and distance. His explanations were clear and appropriate in depth of information. As a result, we ended up seeing some wonderful historic and contemporary sights. Our lunch at a traditional Mexican restaurant allowed us to sample authentic high quality cuisine. Carlos also is very pleasant and a pleasure to tour with
Barbara G.United States
Carlos was on time, even early, to pick us up at the airport. That was great! The tour was good and Carlos knew about all the hidden areas to see. Nice choice for lunch, too.
Richard FrederickUnited States
A thoughtful, amiable host. We enjoyed our day with Carlos. Plus he knows the best food.

Carlos provided a 5 star tour. He hit the highlights of Mexico City in one day. A feat un to itself. It gave me a great flavor of Mexico City and all of its history. Carlos was extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour.
Patrick RiceUnited States
Carlos is a very knowledgeable and affable guide who has a deep knowledge of the of the various relationships between Frida, Diego and Delores and how the artist's gifts to the world were preserved by Delores Olmedo for generations to come. Plus, he's a damn good driver!
Gregory MooreUnited States
Carlos was very knowledgeable about the site as well as other aspects of history concerning Mexico. The tour was very flexible and accommodating. Would definitely recommend this tour.
Carlos was a wonderful guide and picked us up a few minutes early. He was easy to communicate with before our tour too, as we had to switch pickups. He told us a lot about the ruins and answered our questions. He was patient and encouraging with our kids who wanted to climb every mound and look in shops. We felt, tho, we could've learned more about T during the 45-min drives and on the tour (other guides we passed seemed to go into more—or perhaps just different— detail).
Carlos was excellent guide! We were with 2 little kidos and he was very patient. Also was very professional, told us everything about the sites and more and answered all our questions. Highly recommend!
Carol AdamekUnited States
Carlos was on time, and we instantly felt very comfortable with him as our guide. He spoke clearly and was knowledgeable about the civilization of Teotihuacan where our tour was to take place. Our tour was timed perfectly and we never felt rushed. Carlos made a point to show us details at Teotihuacan that seemed extra specia8to view. He made our tour complete. I do not think we would have enjoyed it as much without Carlos as our guide.
Kathleen FlanaganUnited States
What a great, efficient, and knowledgeable tour of the Anthropological Museum. Carlos shepherded us through the primary galleries, making meaningful connections among the cultural exhibits. He weaved the story of life before, during, and after the great culture of Teotihuacan while showing us the most striking examples of each era. We enjoyed time with Carlos on a walk through Chapultepec Park and a visit to the Castle. He was very knowledgeable, with many good stories. Highly recommended.
Kathleen FlanaganUnited States
An amazing and thorough tour of Teotihuacan with great attention to all the history and culture revealed by all the structures as well as the two well-known pyramids. Carlos has a wealth of information about the Citadel, the tunnel beneath it, and the houses and palaces of priests and other residents of this lost city of 200,000. He is a dedicated and knowledgeable guide who made our visit an experience of a lifetime. If you want the real deal and not just a superficial climb up a pyramid, get Carlos.
