The guide Alexandro did a good job. You get to see local markets, travel on the subway and local buses. All the three markets are very interesting and gets you up close with the real city. We would highly recommend this tour.

I had an amazing morning at the markets with Alejandro. This is truly a travel-like-a-local tour. I'm not sure I would have found my way through the markets myself, but he guided us like a pro and gave us an inside look at all of the colorful, delicious and exciting aspects of life in Mexico City.

Great! got to see the markets in action and the last market where the tour ended had lots of Mexican art, jewelry, pottery, etc. to purchase at great prices.

So glad we chose this tour! Our guide was very good, friendly, perfect English and provided great information. So interesting to see a more local side of Mexico City.

Only administrative things kept this from being a five star - 1) The site should note the public transit tickets are not included in the fee. The metro is very inexpensive so we did not mind the cost but were not prepared with the small change they like. 2) One meeting location for the tour start would be best. We met at the location we were provided, then walked 20 minutes to the other meeting location, only to have the people we were suppose to pick up cancel. Thankfully we still saw everything we wanted despite the delayed start, but avoiding the extra walking on a long walking tour would help.

Too fast for me. The guide was knowledgeable, but I felt like I didn't have true browsing time.

The tour guide was great. Information about food or stuff used for different traditional festivals could also be provided during tour. The option of using email to confirm pick up time should be provided as tourists may not be able to find phone to contact the local agent.

Today's tour was very disappointing. To start with, the meeting place for this tour was different to the one given on your printed ticket. When I finally confirmed the meeting place (Amigo Hostel Mexico City) and arrived 15mins prior to departure, I was told to take a seat and the tour guild will be by at 10am to collect me. I remained in this room until 10:25 (25mins after the tour was suppose to commence.)

After we had confirmed I was in the right place for the right tour, I then found out I was the only person paying for the tour. Everyone else participated for FREE!!!

Finally we set off to enjoy what was suppose to be a 4hour tour, it lasted for 2.5hours. What was suppose to be a 3 market tour (La Merced, Sonora and San Juan) was a 2 market tour. There was NO history about the markets and how they began shared with us. We simply followed the leader.

I have been on the road travelling for the the last 3.5years and without a doubt this has been the worst tour I have ever done.

I'm a very unhappy customer.!

I hope you take the time to read this.
