Spend half the day with one of our friendly Mexico City hosts, absorbing the colorful energy of the beautiful city as you hit the streets and explore together.

See yourself exploring a neighborhood like Coyoacán (named after the wily coyote), where you can see Frida Kahlo’s old house, La Casa Azul (The Blue House)?

Or Zócalo, the city’s main public square which just so happens to be one of the largest of its kind in the world?

We can see you doing both.

The remnants of its ancient past are still visible, however, and your host will show you some ruins from this time period.

Whether it’s the spicy Mexican cuisine you’re after (it’s always a good time to stop for some tacos), or an excursion through the city’s market places, cantinas and parks, your host can’t wait to show you their home and share a part of its vibrant energy with you!

Great time with John!

My partner had a lovely time with John and I thought he did a great job ensuring we saw a great deal of the city for our first time there. I gave a few requests, I wanted to see the Roma house, Zocalo, and try Pulque and John devised a great tour that got me a bunch of filming locations from Roma, some delicious Tacos and Pulque and some goregous buildings in the city that I otherwise would have not seen. He was friendly and helpful the entire time. I was even more impressed that he made a point to take us all the way back to our hotel at the end of the tour even though it was out of the way for him. I loved my city unscripted tour and thought John was great!

Mexico City - Diego Rivera

"Five Star Francesca" Francesca de Luca was a fabulous guide on our visit to Mexico City. She took the time to find out what was important to us and planned our time together to match our desires. I can't say enough good things about our time with Francesca. My friend lost her phone and Francesca immediately went into action, navigated the situation, and I can happily report the phone was retrieved. I'm calling it a 'Miracle in Mexico City." By the end of our time together Francesca went from being a guide to being a friend. Thank you again, Francesca! I look forward to getting together to explore more of Mexico City with you on my next visit.
