Trade in airport food for authentic Mexican tacos, the lounge for the Bosque de Chapultepec and souvenir stores for the real deal!

Allow one of our Mexican hosts bust you out of the airport and onto the green, historic, bustling streets of Mexico City, where there’s so much to discover, regardless of your time constraints.

Maximize the limited hours you have to spend in Mexico’s fascinating capital and explore a historic neighborhood, like Coyoacán, where you can wander off to find La Casa Azul, the previous home of Mexican icon Frida Kahlo. Stretch out your legs in a nearby park, before those legs take you to a nearby street food vendor.

Where do we begin? Tamales, tacos, conchas, you name it, it just tastes better in Mexico, and with good company. 

Luckily you have both good company, and are in Mexico.

Time for a spot of shopping at a local market, and grab some last minute gifts for those at home, all before you’re signed, sealed and delivered back to the airport in time for your flight, your host will make sure of it!

Good day in Mexico City

We had a 6 hour layover in Mexico City and did not want to stay at the airport the whole time. We contacted cityunscripted and they recommended Jorge. It was great that he met us at the airport and told us where to storage our luggage. We took an Uber to Zocolo and walk around the downtown sites. We ate at a great restaurant and got some good shopping in along the way and at LaCiudadela where my wife bought some great looking jewelry I haven't seen before. Jorge was very polite and accommod

Mexico City with a Local, Private Tour

Roberto was great, really good company and very knowledgeable. We really only had one day in the city and Roberto ensured that we saw as much as was possible building the tour around the attractions that were important to us. Would highly recommend.

Fun Day!

Roberto was great. He made two females traveling alone feel safe. He showed us parts of the city we would never have found on our own. In addition, he is very knowledgeable. Thanks Roberto!
