The best tour guides are story-tellers, who have a demonstrable passion for their city and its heritage. We've been lucky to have fantastic tour guides in both Italy and Mexico City (through another provider), but our Centro tour experience didn't measure up. We didn't come away feeling as informed as we have with other guides. We had to proactively ask... More

I am sorry that I didn’t not communicate to you my knowledge of Mexico City. Hstory is an elusive subject and art history vocabulary can be confusing, but I have no had trouble communicating with previous clients, as my reviews attest. Regarding the restaurants, I invite readers to check the reviews of both places and then decide. More

Hector is an incredible historian and a great companion. Can't imagine a better person to tour with - our group of four did three tours with him in three days. It was lots of fun, really interesting and we saw some truly hidden treasures. We'll call on him when we visit Mexico again. Larry and Lilli

From a very simple and straight forward booking process to thorough follow-up and coordination of the day Hector covers every detail. Hector is an experience traveler and executive that provide historical and social perspective... More

Spent two days in the company of Hector who proved incredible informative and who has a great sense of humour. First dat we saw the historic centre and on day two went to Teotihuacan. Hector displayed a terrific knowledge of all places visited and went to great trouble to ensure we saw all the important places. Highly recommended

Thank you, Hector, for four wonderful tours. We have taken several tours previously, but have never met a guide as prompt, informative, charming, and willing to adapt a tour to our needs and interests.

My husband and I recently visited Mexico City and hired Hector as our Tour Guide for a few of the days. He catered our itinerary based on what we wanted (and did not want) to see. He made sure to take extra time at places we enjoyed and also could tell if we were ready to move on. We ALWAYS... More

My friends and I just recently visited Day Effay and we had a wonderful time. Our main attraction to MCity was because of the 3 restaurants in the World's Top 50.
