One of the best tours I have ever taken! José María has international certifications and experience as a world heritage specialist and the guided tour was very informative and I learned a lot about Mexico City's center. It was impressive to see the pre-Hispanic ruins, colonial buildings, and contemporary buildings at the city center. At the same time, he is very fun and outgoing and we had a very good time. I HIGHLY recommend this amazing tour!

A wonderful tour of center city by a knowledgeable, warm and charming guide. The national holiday meant that many places were closed but we still had a really lovely experience. We highly recommend Jose!

The tour with José María was great! It felt just like hanging out with a friend and I learned things about Mexico City I never would have learned elsewhere! Definitely recommend.

Take this tour! We cannot say enough good things about Jose Maria. He is friendly, kind, knowledgeable and goes the extra mile for his guests. He loves doing this and it shows. It was just our family on this day, so we got a customized and very intimate tour of downtown. We ventured to places where we seemed to be the only tourists. We saw many hidden places and ancient spots - none of which we would have found by ourselves, much less know the history of. It was eye opening. Thank you so much, Jose Maria. I wish all our other tours have guides like you.
