Monica was our guide, very Knowledgeable, Professional Guide. We went around the old downtown area of Mexico City, pointed to us the important structures & their importance or meaning wherein regular tourist will miss. Of course learned the difference between Mezcal & Tequila. Highly recommended tour when you visit Mexico City...

Gracias for your review! It is very important to know that you enjoy this experience in Mexico City with us. As you write, it is our main goal to show you beyond the touristic places in downtown, and for you to get – at least a piece – of the real Mexico City. Of course, all with a visit to the Tequila museum! Salud! And thank you!

Anthropology Museum Private Experience Walking Tour | Mar 2020
I didn't know anything about VIATOR before booking, now I realize that is a it is a subsidiary of Trip Advisor. They liaison with local providers. I was pleased with their choice. The choice of a guide makes all the difference. In this case, my guide was from Mexico a Pie (a local guide service). Emilliano was my guide. He was excellent. Emilliano tailored the 3+hr tour to my interests. He was courteous, knowledgeable, and interesting--excellent English and personable. Mexico a Pie sent me texts before I met Emillano in front of the Museo with instructions for the meet-up and with a photo so I could recognize Emilliano easily. It is good to keep in mind, when meeting your guide they will NOT identify as a VIATOR guide, but will identify with the name of the local tour company they work for. Also, don't forget to tip your guide ... as you would in the US.

Historic Downtown Walking Tour | Feb 2020
We signed up for the Historic Walking Tour the day after we arrived in Mexico City (to give us time to adjust). Liliana was our tour guide. First off we were a little late (not accustomed to CDMX traffic). She called me to make sure we were okay and luckily we were just arriving. She was totally calm and relaxed even though we were a little rattled about being late. Over the course of the next 3.5 hours Liliana gave us a fabulous tour. Surrounded by breathtaking architecture she takes you all the way back to how Mexico City came to be! She has a passion for the history and she took us to sights we would never have found on our own! Her knowledge of the subject is outstanding! I don't know how she manages to keep all of those dates straight!! The crowning touch of our tour was a quick walk through some of the delicious food choices in the downtown you have to try in this amazing city!! We talked her into joining us for lunch and she took us to an amazing little restaurant that again we would have walked past! The next day we took a tour of Teotihuacan (wit a different tour company but equally as good!) and then the Museum of Anthropology on the 3rd day. Liliana's tour gave us a great grounding to truly appreciate our visit to the pyramids! The Museum of Anthropology brought it all together. Make sure you see the film at the Museum of Anthropology!! Thank you Liliana for such a great tour! It was truly a memorable experience!

Mexico City Layover Tour: Downtown City Sightseeing | Feb 2020
I was dreading my 11 hour layover in Mexico City until I found this 3 hour walking tour. We were picked up at the airport and we were able to keep our carry on luggage in the van. Our guide spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable. He was also sensitive to our needs to slow down the pace as the higher altitude was affecting us. He listened to our interests and tailored our walk to suit our tastes. This was the best part of our entire trip. I strongly recommend it.

Mexico City Layover Tour: Downtown City Sightseeing | Feb 2020
Our guide was amazing and was able to tailor make our tour to suit our situation as soon as she met us. We were a little tired from our travels and this was taken into account, as well making sure that we were fed and watered. At the end of the tour our guide and the driver worked excellently together to overcome a potential traffic issue and ensured that we were back at the airport in plenty of time. Overall we left Mexico City much more informed about this wonderful city thanks to our guide who was responsive to our needs and extremely enthusiastic, friendly and exceptionally knowledgable.

Lucha Libre Experience and Mezcal Tasting in Mexico City | Jan 2020
Had an overnight layover in Mexico City and booked this tour. We walked around the park area for a while before hand. Really wish we had more time there. The tour was excellent! Our guide was informative, and gave us the history of wrestling. The mescal tasting was fun, my husband wanted to back out but ended up having the best time! They were concerned about our safety and made changes as we went to ensure we were safe. Overall this was a great tour.

The best, Angle our driver met us right on time as our email had said, he was very friendly and shared a lot of local information about his city with us, his driving skills had us very relaxed, we met our tour guide Brenda, a most charming lady who knew her city and its rich history, we saw so much and had the best street tacos ever, we only wish we had a longer layover but we were back at the airport with plenty of time to catch our flight. We highly recommend this tour .. .
