Such a fun night! You must do this tour if you want an authentic taste of Mexico. Juan was the perfect tour guide for such an experience. Absolutely a 5 star tour with Juan S.

Juan and his driver David were an absolute delight. Both speak English perfectly, Juan is a wealth of information and David knows his stuff too. Both are kind, patient and considerate, always aware of our needs. They accommodated us when walking became too much, even carrying small folding chairs for us. We laughed and chatted all day long, and learned so much about Mexico City. I highly recommend Juan! Today was most enjoyable.
We had an amazing day with Juan S. so glad I chose him as our tour guide for the Teotihuacan tour. He was a fantastic tour guide for our family of 4 adults. He was punctual, caring, knowledgeable and catered to our every needs. A most enjoyable and awesome tour and guide. Definitely a five star tour.

Juan was on time, very knowledgeable, very warm and personable. He took us to sites we knew from research we wanted to see and didn't waste time bridging culture, history and art across the generations that have impacted Puebla and Cholula. When we told him where we had already visited the day or two before he immediately pivoted to really cool and interesting parts of Puebla we would never had gone to and now glad we did. His English is excellent and it was fun and easy spending hours touring with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Steve! Exploring Puebla with guys like you is always a pleasure. I had a great time and learned a lot from you as well! Hope Puebla met your expectations. It really is an amazing city full of surprises and stories everywhere. It would be great to see you and your wife again here in Mx od in San Francisco!
My wife and I had a second incredible day with Juan in Mexico City. This day focussed on Kahlo and Rivera. What an incredible day of learning and beauty. With Juan, we visited places that most tourists do not go. Of particular note was the Museo Dolores Olmedo Patiño! It was an absolute treat. We had an amazing lunch with Juan, the best Mexican food we have eaten. Juan is a master guide, really smart in many ways! Book now as he is in great demand.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Jeff, Yes, the Dolores Olmedo Museum is so underrated but as you saw, it really deserves more attention! Thank you very much for your kind words. Hope you guys are doing well!
My wife and I arrived in Mexico City on Wednesday for our first visit. We had booked this trip on line with Juan before our arrival so that we would have a chance to get an overview of the city. What an amazing day! It was a perfect mix of sightseeing with what felt like a terrific intro. course to Mexican history. Juan is extremely knowledgeable and really knows how to work with his guests in ways that make the tour feel like an experience that connects you to a new cultural experience.
Juan was an excellent guide who accommodated our special request for a 2-day, overnight tour of the butterfly sanctuaries near Valle de Bravo. He was very professional, timely, relaxed, and fun to be around. He spoke excellent English and was knowledgeable about the regions we were visiting. He has a passion for Mexican history, and shared many interesting stories and anecdotes with us. We enjoyed our 2 days with him, and would recommend him highly as a tour guide.

Juan was a great guide, personable and knowledgeable. He customized an itinerary for us and made our day enjoyable and interesting. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Michael, This was a day to remember. I honestly think Tula is another great archeological site not too far from the city and it actually works well after going to Teotihuacan! Thank you very much for your kind words. It really means a lot to me and motivate me to keep getting better. Thank you for the travel advice by the way! I'm sure it will be very useful.

We really enjoyed the places that Juan took us, particularly the Dolores Olmedo house.He provided all of the tickets that we needed to visit Frida Kahlo's and Diego Rivera's home. He imparted a lot of interesting Information & didn't rush us. His knowledge of English is excellent. Great tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Carolyn, It was a pleasure to be your tour guide :) I wish more people were interested in visiting the Dolores Olmedo Museum! It is truly a wonderful hidden place in the south of the city and as you noticed, Frida and Diego fans will enjoy it. Hope you and your husband had a safe flight back home!
Stephan RungwerthUnited States
Juan was simply outstanding. He tailored the details of the tour to our interests and his knowledge of history was exceptional. He even came prepared with photos to help explain the development of the Xochimilco canal system. We have traveled extensively and Juan is one of the top guides that we have encountered anywhere.
Jonathan FishmanUnited States
Juan is a fantastic guide. His knowledge of Mexican history is impressive and profound. He is extremely personable and adept at crafting the tour to our interests. He gave us unique insight into Mexico City, and in our one week trip our tour with Juan definitely counted as a highlight!
Charles OesterleinUnited States
Juan is very knowledgeable of the history and culture of the region, of Mexico and the world in general. He is passionate, articulate and fluent in English. He listens carefully to his clients and adjusts his focus and level of detail in response to the clients inquiry. He is very respectful and, best of all, he is fun to be with!

Meeting people like you is what makes me want to keep getting better and become the best version of myself. Once again, congratulations on having such a lovely marriage. You are indeed perfect for each other!
We tour was great with pickup at our hotel on schedule. Our guide Juan was amazing. Besides what was included in our tour he added a few other highlights which we thoroughly enjoyed. We learned a lot about the history of Mexico and its culture. We even went for a short subway ride which is something we would not have done on our own. I would highly recommend this tour as a great introduction to Mexico City..
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Vita! I really appreciate your kind words about the tour. The view from the top of the Latino Tower was definitely a highlight that day! Thank you very much for everything. Hope you had a safe flight back home!

Juan took us to Taxco for the day. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. His English is very good. The tour was excellent. We had a wonderful day and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Juan to anyone traveling to Mexico City.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Margaret. Thank you very much for your great review. Exploring the Caves and Taxco with you was a pleasure. Hope to see you guys back in CDMX someday to visit some other places like Puebla or Queretaro!
Amazing day with our guide Juan S. We were very lucky to have had Juan's knowledge and passion for the history of the area. He was thorough without being too long winded. Helped us enjoy this incredible site by careful planning. Would not hesitate to use him the next time in Mexico City. I would use no one else.
Juan was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful and organized the tour of Teotihuacán and the Guadalupe Basilica in a very effective manner. He arrived on time, the vehicle was comfortable and the driver David was also very friendly and did a great job.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Chris! It was great meeting you and your wife. We really enjoyed the Pyramid tour with you guys. Hope to see you back in CDMX someday!
Charlotte BorstUnited States
We have booked TBL tours previously and have come to expect a very high level of professionalism, but Juan exceeded even your normal levels. His English is perfect, but even more important, his attentiveness to us (two of us are historians) was incredible. He took this fact and brought us to places in Cholula and Puebla he thought historians would want to see. Thanks, Juan for a wonderful day!!
Steve AndrewsUnited States
Juan was a prince and a prize. Renee and I enjoyed the company and insights of not only Juan, but also his good friend and driver Edgar (aka David, aka Eddie). It was a special day they gave us, and Renee and I both think it was well worth it. The showed us Mexico City like we would never have seen it without their guidance. We would both jump at the chance to do it again. Thank you, guys. -Steve
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Steve, We had a blast with you guys! Being with both of you is so much fun. Time really flies when you have a good time and that's exactly what we felt! Thank you for sharing stories with us and the advice. I really take everything into consideration to make sure I keep getting better. Let me know if you come back to the city!
David WhiteUnited States
Great tour! Juan provided great insight into everywhere we went, is very personable, and went out of his way to make sure we had a good experience. We went places and saw things that exceeded my expectations I recommend Juan to anyone who wants to learn about these historic areas in southern Mexico City.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola David! It was a pleasure to spend the day with you and Caroline. Hope she had a great time celebrating her birthday in the south of the city! I learnt a lot from both of you and wish you the best!
Juan is an energetic and knowledgeable tour guide. He shared a lot of stories about the region in Xochimilo, Coyoacán, San Angel and some Catholics history. He also knows where we can take good pictures and recommends good restaurant with reasonable price. He speaks English well and is easy to understand. It is very nice to have him as our tour guide. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Yueh! Thank you very much for the nice review! Hope you had a safe flight back home. Send my regards to your family!
John CarpenterUnited States
Juan was a great guide to the pyramids for our group of three. From the moment he picked us up at the hotel he was friendly and engaging. All arrangements went smoothly, and he really thought through the sequence of the tour so that we had a good introduction, climbed the big Sun and Moon pyramids first, and then ended with the Citadel last, which was the best of all. Friendly, with a good sense of humor. We had a great day and learned a lot.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello John! Thank you very much for the amazing review! I had so much fun and a great time with you guys. I'm sure you are doing great in NY. Hope to see you again in the chaotic but wonderful Mexico City!

Brenda NelsonUnited States
Juan is an excellent guide! If you are thinking about booking a tour with him, do it. He has a warm, engaging personality and makes the trip fun. We learned so much about the history of the area, and he knew where to find some really good food. We probably wouldn't have stopped at the UNAM on our own, but we really enjoyed our stop there. And the boat ride at Xochimilco was a highlight of our whole trip to Mexico City.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Brenda! Thank you so much for your fantastic review. It was a great way to finish the year! Wish you and your family the best!

If you are looking for a guide who is extremely knowledgeable, intensely passionate about history and art, incredibly friendly, endlessly patient and an absolute delight to spend the day with, then Juan is the guide for you. Juan curated the most memorable day where we learned so much about the cultural history of the city, all while having tons of fun doing it. I can not recommend him highly enough.
