We met on the back of Belle Artes, and our guide was very friendly and kind. We walked down a very busy street towards the national palace. My friend and I paid extra to go to the top of a 40 story toward, which allowed for great views of the city. I will say that if I were to book again, I wouldn’t select Saturday evening - the historic center was packed with people, and it was hard to hear the guide over the crowd. Also, you have to queue to access the observation deck of the tower - all in, we probably waited around 30 minutes before accessing the deck.

Very good experience, knowing some places in the city and knowing its history, the guide was very kind and gave us very good recommendations to go to restaurants and some other places and in the end to be able to access the Latin American tower and see the sunset from the viewpoint It was spectacular.


It was raining and yet, Alexa took us on the tour and showed us the interesting buildings and lanes of downtown Mexico City. Lots of local insights combined with the unpredictability of the rain- made the trip a memorable one. Well done!

5 of us- first time visitors to Mexico City. Excellent introductory tour. Ramon was a terrific guide-extremely knowledgeable and personable!
