Guadalajara tour
Alexander_C, Apr 2022
Both the guide and the driver were extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. They went out of their way to make sure that we got to see everything we could. We never felt rushed and our guide explained many aspects of the geography and history of this wonderful city.
Very interesting
Rosemary_M, Mar 2022
The tour guides knowledge of the history. We were however told the tour was 8 hours which it was not. The tour of downtown is excellent but the time at the Tlaapaque Market was too short.
Perfect tour to get to know GDL

The driver and tour guide, Eric and Hernan, picked me up right on time at the destination. Hernan is an experienced guide and he was able to take us to different points in the city (Los Arcos, La Minerva, La Catedral de Guadalajara, El Templo Expiatorio, La Rotonda de los Ilustres etc ). He provided excellent background and history , and even took us to see the murals of local artist Jose Clemente Orozco. Just seeing those murals made the trip amazing. You’ll enjoy his great company and conversation while you walk in downtown Guadalajara in El Centro, and explore the different buildings . Afterwards you’ll visit Tlaquepaque and enjoy local cuisine from a great restaurant that was recommended , and have ample time to explore all the shops. I definitely recommend this trip to everyone that wants to know more about the city and it’s rich history.
Excellent experience

Dante was an excellent guide. I was fortunate to have a private tour as I was the only one on the tour.
Great experience. Thank you!

The entire tour was interesting and fascinating. The guide Hernan and driver Jorge were professional. Hernan knows a lot of history and shared his knowledge of the city which was extensive.
Best tour ever....
Regina_G, Apr 2021
My guide Luis was most welcoming and incredibly informative. By the end of the tour I could not say enough for my fondness for Tlaquepaque from Guadalajara. I highly recommend GDL and Luis for his enthusiasm and knowledge.
So good I booked another tour!
Shannon_J, Oct 2020
The tour of Guadalajara was excellent and very informative. And though COVID 19 caused the closure of many historic buildings and museums, Bernice Miramontes, the tour guide, led me to the Cultural Institute Cabanas to view murals from the artist Jose Clemente Orozco. A delight!!
