Awesome food and a great tour! - My wife and I had a great tour with Isaac! It was our first time in Mexico City and we wanted to learn about the local neighborhoods and also eat great tacos. I loved getting to know Mexico City from a local like Isaac, who is incredibly knowledgeable about the history, culture, and food scene. Isaac was kind and very informative during our tour. He met us at our lodging and took us to some of the best taco spots in the area (some of which we ended up going back to even after our tour was over). It was a great experience overall and I highly recommend taking this tour, especially with Isaac as a tour guide!

Fantastic introduction to the heart of Mexico City with Marisol! - You could just go and see the major sights or you could take a walking tour with a guide that really knows the city! Marisol did a great job, showing us not just some of the wonderful architecture and buildings in the centre but taking us inside some of the buildings that you, as a regular tourist, would just walk past without realising what is hiding inside! She was able to provide us a huge amount of history and insight and made the day even better by getting us a reservation at a wonderful restaurant for dinner, too! Thank you very much Marisol! We had a fantastic afternoon with you.

Excellent tour of Mexico City’s historic central plaza and adjacent points of interest off the beaten path - My family of 4 adults selected the 6-hour City Unscripted private tour to take advantage of as much time to visit a number of tourist locations as well as other atypical points of interest. Our knowledgeable guide, Marisol, gave us a broad tour of the Zocalo and areas around the Zocalo, Mexico City’s historic central plaza that’s surrounded by beautiful buildings with interesting architectural details. Other points of interest were the House of Tiles (Azulejos) and Palacio de Hiero (dept store). We also visited some hidden gems – some murals painted by famous artists and incredible buildings with gorgeous architecture off the beaten path away from throngs of tourists. Throughout the tour, Marisol provided historical insights and in-depth explanations to our questions. Most of us except for one speak Spanish so we loved that Marisol was able to move from English to Spanish and back to English seamlessly. We wholeheartedly recommend Marisol. She is a personable and professional guide.
