Our guide Ligia was terrific--knowledgeable and fun. The market tour was the perfect introduction to Mexico City. It set the tone and adventure for our week here in D F. I'd recommend it highly to everyone.
We did not realize that this was a walking tour when I booked it. It was a good walk and you get to see a lot of things you would never get to in a car. You also get to ride the subway. Roberto our guide was amazing and very helpful if you want to go shopping. You basically just have to tell him what you want and he'll help you out. Got to eat a lot of Mexican street food staples and see a lot of unusual things especially in La Merced. We enjoyed our tour with Roberto so much we also booked him (not thorough Viator) for his Xochimilco, university and Freda Kahlo museum after our tour with him. We were a group of three in my booking and we were the only ones on this tour. It was a fun day at the markets.
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.
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.
Our guide was enthusiastic and fairly well informed.
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.
