My wife and I just had Hector show us around Mexico City for 2 days...he was fantastic. We appreciated Hector's depth of knowledge in history, architecture, art and almost everything in Mexico City. Hector is a worldly gentleman.

We used Getyourguide in Mexico City for a 3 hour walking tour. The tour was great with a terrific guide. Her name was Alicia and she was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic. It was a highlight of our visit to Mexico City.

The best tour guides are story-tellers, who have a demonstrable passion for their city and its heritage. We've been lucky to have fantastic tour guides in both Italy and Mexico City (through another provider), but our Centro tour experience didn't measure up. We didn't come...More

Hey Hector, I am am a solo female traveler stopping for just two days in Mexico City before heading down to Central America. I am stopping in Mexico City because I want to see the Aztec Ruins of former Tenochtilan and if there are other historical things to see/do I'd love to see as much as I can. Do you have any specific hotels that you work with that make getting to and from your tour easily and to and from the Airport easily as I will be alone and my Spanish is awful? Any help would be much appreciated!

Planning on a trip to Mexico June 8-11 for a group of 11-14 which will include pick up to & from the airport /hotel plus tour. Are you able to accommodate a our group? Do you planned itinerary already on the must see in Mexico? Most interested in Our Lady of Guadalupe, Teotihuacan, National Museum of Anthropology, Chapultepac Castle, Bellas Artes, Frida Kahlo. Is there a good place to tequila taste also. Tour will start on June 8. Leaving Mexico City June 11
