What you'll do
As well as visiting the places you most want to see, stop by local spots and places of interest along the way to get an authentic insight into local life in Mexico City.
Your local will also advise you on the best way to spend the following days of your trip, allowing you to discover other areas of the city that you will love and revealing other hidden gems that they know you’ll love.
What To Expect
We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality and interests so we can assign a like-minded local who can create a bespoke experience for you.
Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience, you can always change your mind about what you want to do.
Your Local Host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.
Although you will see the main attractions in the area, your Local Host will also help you to discover the places, things, and stories that you won’t find in a guidebook and that make the city unique.
How This Benefits You
With a Local by your side, you’ll be able to go beyond the superficial and connect with Mexico City and its people, getting to know what truly makes the city unique.
Get relevant advice to help you save time and money during the rest of your trip; using local insight you’ll be able to get around, skip tourist pitfalls and experience life like a local.
See the main attractions with the benefit of local knowledge, like the best times to avoid the crowds, but also explore off-the-beaten-path areas where the locals really live.
All of our Local hosts speak English and Spanish, and some also speak French, Italian and Hindi, so can connect with you culturally as well as with your personality, allowing you to feel at home in the city in no time!

Customise Your Visit: Half a Day with a Local | Mexico CityReview by: Edith F
Roberto took me for a 4-hour private tour of the centro histórico and surrounding area. Packed a lot of sights into that short time. His knowledge is probably more extensive than any of the employees at the places we visited. He also took great care of me when I started feeling unwell due to the altitude & being way out of shape. We kept having to pull over for a breather, but I was determined to go on & he made sure I was ok before continuing. It would’ve been pretty embarrassing for me if he hadn’t been so cool about it. Oh yeah, and he came back the next day to give me my jacket that I’d forgotten. Thank goodness there are people like Roberto in CDMX! ¡Gracias para todo!

Your Go-To Guide in Mexico City!
What a delightful, informative and energetic guide! It’s obvious from the first greeting and handshake that Roberto is a good listener and understands your needs. We wanted our tour to include an overview of our Coyoacán neighborhood and how to safely use Uber and the subway. Roberto came thru on all accounts. If you are interested in the archeology of Mexico City and its surroundings, look no further than Roberto. It’s clear he loves his city and its many hidden and revealed charms. He’s your go-to guide in Mexico City!

Expert insights and amazing walking tour of Coyoacan in Mexico City
I had only a brief stay before heading out of Mexico City and Roberto agreed with very short notice to meet me and show me around some of Mexico City. We were primarily focused on the Coyoacan neighborhood as well as the large university campus. One of the highlights was Roberto’s inexhaustible knowledge on everything from archaeology to history to politics. Very comfortable and easy to be around. We ended our evening with a great selection of tacos from a small local place he knew. I def recommend booking some time with him if you are in Mexico City for a few hours or a few days. Well worth it.

Knowledgeable and fun
Roberto is a great guide, both knowledgeable and fun. I am traveling solo and I quickly learned that when working with a private guide, it's essential to be with someone that is enjoyable to spend time with. Roberto has an immense knowledge of architecture and a true passion for sharing all that he knows. He arranged for two distinct and full days for me - and both focused on seeing a "behind the scenes" view of Mexico City, away from the typical tourist spots. We spent one day in the south of Mexico City and another day in the central historic district. I came away with a great feel for life, people and history of Mexico City. Thank you Roberto!!
