My most exciting things to do in Mexico City

Mexico City has an astounding history that you can live and feel through its archaeological sites, museums and historical neighborhoods. It’s also famous for its culinary traditions and is reflected on traditional markets, street food and restaurants of all kinds. Here you can find culinary specialties from all over the world and of course, of Mexico itself. My intention is to show you all the cultural life Mexico City has to offer, the city boils in a dynamic cultural movement which we can see represented in many ways, from independent cinema, theater, art expositions, concerts and festivals to some other that personified the Mexican lifestyle as it best, such as cantinas, pulquerias, nightclubs, city parks and of course; the world famous Mexican wrestling.

I'm mexican, I was born and raised in Mexico City, which I know very well. I love my city, I find it very attractive to have the opportunity to live in a big urban center such as Mexico City. I'm open to diverse and different cultures and always enjoy meeting new people. I believe learning about other people is a way for me to learn and grow.

All I do is work. My job entails learning, creating, planning and sharing what I know - and there is nothing I enjoy more. I have had many friends visit from different places and I discovered how much fun it is to help others know and love my city. So, here I am looking for more people to share this hobby of mine some people call "work". My best feature? I'm hungry to learn more, more, more! Give me a challenge and let's find out new things about Mexico City together!

I fell in love with Mexico and its capital three years ago as I had the chance to discover it through the eyes of locals, my lover and friends. My mission is to do the same with you! Walking around and discover this ever changing city is my favourite hobby as you will never get bored to do so. Food, culture, nature, art and tradition are what make this place special and unique and I will show it to you as I have done with plenty of my friends. Ready to fall in love with Mexico?

Your Go-To Guide in Mexico City!

What a delightful, informative and energetic guide! It’s obvious from the first greeting and handshake that Roberto is a good listener and understands your needs. We wanted our tour to include an overview of our Coyoacán neighborhood and how to safely use Uber and the subway. Roberto came thru on all accounts. If you are interested in the archeology of Mexico City and its surroundings, look no further than Roberto. It’s clear he loves his city and its many hidden and revealed charms. He’s your go-to guide in Mexico City!

Mexico City brought to life!

My husband and I had a very limited period of time to experience a taste of Mexico City. We were very lucky to have Roberto as our guide for half a day. His local, archaeological and historical knowledge of what is now one of our favourite cities in the world enhanced our visit. We couldn’t recommend him highly enough - his manner, sense of humour and knowledge of English were fantastic. We were also helped at very short notice to organise our tour by Bertie from City Unscripted - all in all a very professional outfit. Thank you Roberto and Co.

Expert insights and amazing walking tour of Coyoacan in Mexico City

I had only a brief stay before heading out of Mexico City and Roberto agreed with very short notice to meet me and show me around some of Mexico City. We were primarily focused on the Coyoacan neighborhood as well as the large university campus. One of the highlights was Roberto’s inexhaustible knowledge on everything from archaeology to history to politics. Very comfortable and easy to be around. We ended our evening with a great selection of tacos from a small local place he knew. I def recommend booking some time with him if you are in Mexico City for a few hours or a few days. Well worth it.
