You’ll spend with one of our friendly Mexico City hosts, getting to know the city's highlights and local haunts.

The city has such an incredible history, which is why you might like to start in Zócalo, an ancient square which used to be the center of the Aztec Empire before it was captured by the Spanish colonists.

Follow your host around the surprisingly green broadways of the city center as they share its rich heritage with you.

From old school bars (cantinas) to sleek museums that look like something out of the future, Mexico City will surprise you will its nod to both the past and present.

Explore the Bosque de Chapultepec, a large inner-city park that’s considered Mexico City’s green lung, and even make friends with the sweet little squirrels that live there!

From the top of its rocky outcrop, you can get spectacular views of the cityscape.

Whatever you’d like to do, be it take in the famous sites, like the Ángel de la Independencia, or stroll around a quirky neighborhood, your host has got you covered and will make up for any Spanish you lack.
