Perfect day in Mexico City!

We used City Unscripted to book a custom 8 hour tour with Alejandro when we had a spare day on a recent trip to Mexico City. We weren't sure if 8 hours would be too long or not but it was just the right amount to hit everything we wanted to see plus all the extra fun stuff we didn't even know about. We were really impressed by Mexico City and found Alejandro to be an absolutely wonderful guide. We'd highly recommend him to anyone and we'll for sure consider using City Unscripted again in the future.

A Sunday afternoon in Mexico City with Roberto

This was my first day in Mexico City. I should say I was unhelpfully vague in my description too CityUnsrcipted as to what I was exactly looking for apart from expressing an interest in art and architecture and then adding that I didn't want to visit any of the particularly popular destinations e.g cathedrals, churches & museums etc.. it didn't occur to me how difficult it might be determine exactly what I might be looking for, I am not sure I knew myself. As it happened it was a really good tour and Roberto was a great guide. I will term the tour as a primer to Mexico City. Roberto set the city into historical, social and cultural contexts which subsequently very usefully informed the rest of my stay. Roberto speaks very good English and is very good company. His intelligent descriptions and insights about the city and its history were fascinating. Furthermore, the afternoon involved visiting places which I can't believe would be on any other tour. They were locations that only a local would know about visiting and then again it was the intelligent explanation of the various influences at work at each place which was most interesting to me. Mexico City is a fascinating and complex city and this afternoon made it much easier for me to go some way too try and understand it
