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 famous sites, like the Ángel de la Dependencia, or stroll around a quirky neighborhood, your host has got you covered and will make up for any Spanish you lack.

  • Get to know the real Mexico City with your host - a city local

  • Stroll around the historic Bosque de Chapultepec and absorb the city’s history as you chat to your host

  • See the city's most famous sites in one day, as well as a few hidden gems along the way

Amazing history and archaeological adventure of CDMX!

Alan was really familiar with the history of CDMX and intellectual conversation was very interesting as well. He was very knowledgeable and had a lot of patience while explaining and answering any additional questions I had! I love his free spirit and knowledge of indigenous practices as well. CDMX did not disappoint and appreciate the interests that my tour guide paid attention to as well.

Knowledgable and Enthusiastic Mexico City Overview

Roberto was a great guide to introduce us to the layout and history of Mexico City. He was able to point us to all sorts of interesting places we never would have found by wandering on our own. His background in archaeology made him an appreciated authority on cultural and historical context. He has a genuine love for the subject and was great at inspiring interest and appreciation in our group!

Roberto is the best!

Roberto is a wonderful tour guide. He met me on Christmas Day, so admittedly a tour this day would be harder to plan. He has a full agenda of things to do and see. He was so knowledgeable, and I felt safe the entire time, as a single female traveler that is super important! I would highly recommend booking a tour with him!

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!
