We booked a full-day tour with driver in Mexico City. I had been wavering between booking this group or another company, but ultimately chose Journeys Beyond the Surface based on how organized and up-front everything seemed to be. It ended up being a great choice. Mojdeh (who coordinates everything) worked with us to come up with a general itinerary that... More

Our guide Sergio provided two days of private guide services for our family and the experience made our vacation. We were only in Mexico City for three days and for the tour days we went non-stop for full 8 hours each day. While the experience was intense at no time were we ever tired and most importantly we finished up... More

My 21 y.o. son and I had great 3 days in Mexico thanks to Mojdeh, Sergio and Alvaro. Every day was very exciting and rich, - sights, impressions, information, both about the usual and not so usual attractions in this huge city. Both guides also gave us their personal perspectives on life, culture and even politics in Mexico City/Mexico which... More

My wife and I had three days of tours in Mexico City and surrounding areas. We were provided with three excellent guides. Each was extremely knowledgeable about what we visited, and as well were willing to share their understandings about the country, the people, and various issues. The tours were set up to cover what we wanted to see. We... More

We loved our two days of touring -- Maria, our guide in the Centro Historico area of Mexico City, was knowledgeable, fun, and flexible. We knew we wanted to see the main attractions, such as Palacio de Bellas Artes, the National Palace, etc, but she also veered off to show us probably the largest pastry shop on the planet, and...

We started out with A half day planned with Alvaro, but he was so fantastic that we ended up spending several days together, being led around Mexico City from the well-known monuments (and the fantastic, personal back stories he provided) to the witchcraft market and museums where he explained every little thing to us that caught our fancy. Oliver was... More

This was our second tour with Journeys Beyond the Surface, this time to the Pyramids of Teotihuacan. It was very easy to set up the tour with Mojdeh and our guide Alvaro was very knowledgeable and picked out very interesting side trips along the way. We had a great time, once again.

Time to say thank you to Mojdeh and her guides for making our visit to Mexico City so worry free and interesting. Never having been to Mexico City my wife and i as seniors had concerns while planning a visit. Luckily I found Mojdeh and received her advice with endless email questions patiently answered. And for the actual visit Mojdeh... More

I'm grateful to former Tripadvisor reviewers for steering me to Journeys Beyond the Surface. I had one day in Mexico City on my own before joining a group, and I wanted to see different things. Mojdeh, who heads the company, was helpful and responsive via email to help me plan the day. My guide, Sergio, was well-informed and fun to... More

Thanks to Mojdeh at Jouneys Beyond the Surface, my wife and I spent 4 wonderful days exploring the history and culture around Mexico City. She prepared us with advice and information for us to plan our visit and then provided us with an excellent guide, Maria, for a full day walking tour of the Historic district. Maria was very pleasant... More
