I was thrilled with my tour of Mexico City with Karina. She actually met me at the airport at 5:30 a.m! I only had about 4 1/2 hours before my connecting flight, but she filled them with the essential sights, sounds, tastes, and feelings of the city. Her love of her country was obvious, as well as her knowledge. Taking an individual tour is absolutely the best way to get to know a new place. Karina didn't just introduce me to Mexico City, she gave me an experience that changed me inside.
Karina was the most exceptional, and knowledgeable tour guide I have had, took my booking on short notice, had me picked up from the airport and dropped off by Uber. On the short notice late night tour she showed me as much as she could in the short amount of time I had, and showed me some of the best authentic Mexican food Ever! followed up by some of the best Mexican beer I've ever had! very knowledgeable, kind, and really cared about showing me her city that she is very passionate about. #again!

Karina is an excellent guide! Our trip with her to Xochimilco and the Dolores Olmedo museum was the highlight of our vacation. She is very knowledgeable and facilitated our boat ride and accommodations on a Sunday in Xochimilco when it was very crowded. We would have paid much more money for goods/services without her assistance. The van was on-time, new, clean, and the driver was professional & able to navigate through traffic saving us a lot of time. We highly recommend using Karina for tours in CDMX
Very accommodating and knowledgeable about her country's history. Karina was kind enough to customize a tour due to our tight schedule. Great personality!
Nous avons reserve une visite avec Karina pour Teotihuacan et Tula. Elle est arrives a l'heure prevue a notre hotel en companie d'un chauffeur. Le qualite du vehicule etait exellente, nous etions tres comfortable. De plus le chauffeur a conduit de facon tres securitaire. Karina est tres amiable et connait tres bien les sites que nous avons visites. Elle nous a accompagnee tout le long de notre peripriple meme sur la pyramide du soleil. Elle a tres genereuse de son temps. Nous la recommendons fortement.

Karina was knowledgeable and well organized. Fun to be with.
Vincent HsiehUnited States
Karina was awesome. With her bubbly personality and encyclopedia like knowledge of Mexico, she was so much fun to be around and great to learn from. She customized the experience for our specific needs (even taking us "off schedule" to a lavender factory on the way to Puebla). She had a designated driver so she could focus her attention on us. If you're looking for someone to have a fun time with while learning interesting things about Mexican history and culture, you MUST book a tour with Karina!
Adrian PerezUnited States
We are so happy that we booked this tour with Karina. She worked with us before the trip to customize a tour that was perfect! The insights she shared on the history, sights and food of Mexico really enhanced our trip. Karina is warm and personable. It was a real pleasure to spend the day in Mexico City with her. We look forward to booking tours with her on future trips.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Adrian. I really enjoyed this tour. You are amazing. :)
Mark SchirtzingerUnited States
Absolutely wonderful tour. Karina was very knowledgeable and very kind. Took me to wherever I wanted to go. Romone was great also as a driver. Very professional and well done tour. Gracias!
Lori LiuUnited States
I would recommend doing Xochimilco and Coyoacan on two separate days, as the traffic between them was terrible and I would have liked to have spent more time in Coyoacan. The tour guide was pleasant but not as good as we had expected after reading other reviews.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lori: I'm sorry if this tour was not what you expected. If you had told me that you wanted to spend more time in Coyoacan, I would not have had any problem. I'm not guilty of traffic either: We did our best. I really appreaciate your feed back. Thank you.
Sarah McClearyUnited States
This is my 2nd trip to Mexico City & 2nd tour with Karina. We saw a different side of the city. She showed us amazing places and helped navigate all admissions or transactions --- good since we are not Spanish speakers. She was on time, full of information, charming, knowledgeable, and created our tour with our ages and interests in mind. She stayed flexible and checked in often to make sure we were not hungry, too tired from walking, etc. She also kept 3 of us from getting separated not an easy task!!
Adrienne BarnesUnited States
Karina was an awesome tour guide. She worked with me over several days to design and re-design a tour specific to my group size and needs. Karina was able to teach us about the history of Teotihuacan and the Basilica. Everything was simply perfect!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Adrienne, thank you so much. You are amazing and it was a pleasure being your tour guide. Please let me know if you come again. Muchas gracias :)
Karina was on time at the hotel and throughout the tour she was knowledgeable and entertaining.
Susan RoseUnited States

Brenda LangeUnited States
Karina was an excellent guide. She is very knowledgeable about Mexican history, art and architecture. She is also a very nice person to spend the day with. We will book again.
Eleanor HenderUnited States
Karina is a lovely, gentle soul with a great passion for her country and an excellent depth of knowledge. She s ready to answer questions and share as much information as one can take in. The car she used was very comfortable with a great driver.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Eleanor. It was a pleasure. Thank you so much and come back soon. :)
Eles foram muito profissionais e atenciosos, gostamos muito dos passeios
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Muito obrigada, Sr. João. Foi um prazer conhecer vocês. Boa viagem e voltem logo. :)
Excelent tour, Karina improved a lot our knowledge and interest about Mexico
John WatsonUnited States
Karina was wonderfully enthusiastic and knowledgeable. She reacted flexibly to our preferences, folding in an unplanned trip to a museum that we had heard great things about at the last minute. She also took us to a place she said had the best coffee in Mexico. I can't vouch for that but it was great coffee all the same. And great tostadas too! And her preferred driver, Claudio, was great too. A terrific experience.
John PaineUnited States
Karina was very personable and the tour of the pyramids and region was very informative and enjoyable. I highly recommend her as your guide!
Todd AndrlikChicago, IL, United States
Karina was the perfect tour guide. We had a blast on our tour, which was customized to include Xochimilco, the Frida Kahlo museum, Coyoacan market and some good food. We aren't an easy group with two little kids, but she was able to keep us all entertained and informed. We enjoyed the two-way communication during our tour and were extremely impressed with her logistics. Her driver was very reliable and fun, too. Highly recommended!

If there were more stars, we would have rated Karina higher. What a joy! She customized the tour on our interests (art, architecture, history, & social justice) and helped us see many details that we would not have recognized on our own. By listening not only to our questions but also our comments about what we appreciated along the way, she was able to personalize her comments and emphasize things she was sure we would like. This was no canned tour; this was a new friend introducing her beautiful city.
Jimmy AntiaUnited States
A wonderful tour with a wonderful guide. Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jimmy: Thank you very much. I'm not so sure who learned more from whom. ;)
Lilia BlochUnited States
Karina arrived on time, was flexible with the schedule to accommodate our requests. She is friendly and nice. But if you are looking for a cultural experience and want to learn the history of a country and see the story behind the things you are looking at, you should probably go elsewhere. Maybe your experience would be better if you speak Spanish, our tour was in English.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lilia, thank you so much for your feedback, it is very important for me. I do apologize if the tour was not what you expected. Best regards.

Kenneth FowlerUnited States
We were picked up on time at the airport in a comfortable vehicle with a very capable driver given the busy road conditions of Mexico City. The tour of Teotiachuan was good and included a little visited museum housing artifacts from the site. The lunch at La Gruta was tasty and it is a very unique cave location. We also had a nice tour of the major sites of Mexico City.
Robert M.United States
Our tour could not have been more enjoyable. Karina picked us up at the exact time she promised and we were on our way. Since this was our first time in Mexico City she immediately share cultural and interesting information along the way. Her knowledge of the Basilica and the story of Our Lady of Guadalupe was extremely informative and she took the time to show us the entire area and the churches that have been build throughout the years She knew the best shopping and where to take the best pictures.
Joshua HartUnited States
Karina was amazing as a tour guide! Very knowledgeable about the history of Mexico City and the Aztec culture, and she had an excellent agenda laid out for places to go and visit. Her English is perfect, and she even spoke in fluent Portuguese for my Brazilian companion! Pickup was exactly on time, and overall we all had a great time! Love Mexico City, and next time we go back we will sign up for another tour to visit more of the city with her!
Tony M.United States
Karina was amazing, amazing and did I say amazing ! Thank you for everything! She was very flexible and made the whole trip worth every dollar. In my honest opinion if you want a great tour guide Look no further Karina is the one !!! Personally, I plan on going back and will leverage her expertise!!!!
Michelle CampbellUnited States
Karina and Roger (driver) were wonderful. We had a great time seeing the sights they took us to and we felt extremely comfortable with them both. They took us exactly to where we wanted to go and what we previously had discussed and they also showed us more neighborhoods and a few areas so that we had a better idea of what Mexico City is all about. She was flexible in setting up a day tour where she picked us up from the airport and also dropped us off. We had a great time and Karina is very knowledgeable
Karina is an excellent host and guide. Very knowledgable and amjable. I highly recommend her.
Edward (Drew) BrophyUnited States
We were picked up on time in a nice car, our tour guide Karina gave us info on Teotihuacan on the car ride there. It was a beautiful morning sunny with a cool wind blowing, the site was more amazing than all the photos I have seen. Karina gave us fantastic well paced tour of the huge complex. She pointed out many details we would have missed. Her knowledge completed the picture of the people's life in the city. The walk in the garden and museum was awesome. We topped it off with lunch in a cave.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your feedback, Mr. Edward. It was a pleasure and very enriching being your tour guide.
Hector MorenoUnited States
Cómo describir a Karina? Es INCREIBLE! Al final del tour nos sentimos más como familia que como clientes. Ella nos hizo sentir como si estubiesemos conociendo a México por primera vez aunque esta sea una de tantas veces que hemos estado ahi. Cuando le dije que quería que mi familia conociera un poquito de la CDMX, ella se encargo de arreglar todo y planear un día que nos dejó con mil ganas de regresar a continuar la gira. GRACIAS por todo, Karina! Esperamos verte pronto (Día de los Muertos?)!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Estimado Sr. Hector: Agradezco mucho sus comentarios. Para mí fue un verdadero placer conocerlos: usted y su familia son maravillos! México es su casa y serán bienvenidos cuando gusten. Un cordial saludo para todos ustedes. Karina :)
Sally SheldonUnited Kingdom
We had an excellent visit to Teotihuacan with Karina, who was the perfect guide. She was friendly, chatty, perfectly fluent in English, and full of interesting information about Teotihuacan and Mexican life. Pick up was prompt and the car - ably driven by Arturo - was large and clean with good aircon. Karina also made a great restaurant suggestion for lunch. I would definitely book her again if I get the chance.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sally, Thank you so much for your feedback: the pleasure was mine! Your welcome whenever you want. :)
Elaine PhilisUnited States
Karina was lovely. Excellent English skills and knowledge of the local sites. We had a customized tour for three of Zocalo Square and the surrounding areas including the Temple, cathedral and murals of Diego Rivera. She was flexible about arranging the site around our interest level and came up with a couple great overlooks to get a bird's-eye view of the sites. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Elaine, It was a pleasure being your tour guide. You and your friends are amazing people. Thank you so much! :)
