Flexible, good balance of history vs sight-seeing, and an overall great person. - Ingrid is relatable and was very flexible to our plans, including adjustments during the tour. We got a good tourism experience with Chapultepec Castle, and also a real local experience with lunch in the downtown market area.

Great Tour Experience - Roberto was an excellent tour guide. He really took the time to explain the history to us and showed us key locations that complimented our experience. He also provided us with restaurant recommendations that were more authentic Mexican which was what we wanted to experience.

A very memorable experience with a great guide - Ingrid was amazing. She shared the city's history and her perspective as somebody living there now. She spoke great English and was happy to answer any questions I had. I would recommend her for sure.

Highly Recommend - We had a great day exploring Mexico City with Oskar. I love that he was flexible with us on the different highlights we were interested in seeing. This was definitely not a 'standardized' tour. He emailed me prior to the date requesting preferences, and then even on the morning of our tour we were able to request changes. I have nothing but good things to say about this experience and if you are considering- highly recommend. Thanks for a great day Oskar!

Highly Recommend Ernesto/City Unscripted! - My wife and I did a 4 hour walking tour of Mexico City with Ernesto and had a great time! Prior to the tour Ernesto reached out to learn about what we wanted to get out of the experience and he delivered, exceeding my expectations. The meet-up location was convenient and the tour began the moment we walked out the door. He even waited for us to get into an Uber back to our lodging before he left! Not only did we get to see the sight but he provided valuable insights about the history of CDMX and Mexico in general. While the history was a bit dense for my wife I was very impressed with his knowledge of the history and the cultural significance/impact of critical events and how they continue to shape the city. I even got to see some of what he explained to us in the real time with a peaceful political demonstration in the same areas that we toured the next day. I would not hesitate to do another tour with Ernesto the next time I visit.

Private Tour in Mexico City - I am so glad that I booked this custom tour. Adriana was a perfect match and did a great job building a tour around my interests. I highly recommend making it the first thing you do after getting to the city. It felt as though I was meeting an old friend to show me around their city. Adriana was so knowledgeable and clearly loves her city very much. She took me off the beaten path and we went places that would have been difficult for me to get to alone. If you have any interest delving a little deeper into Mexico City, its history or culture, then you simply must do this tour. It was one of the highlights of my trip and gave me a lot of confidence to explore on my own.

Great experience with knowledgeable and fun guide - I did a private tour with Marisol. She was extremely knowledgeable about history, geography, architecture, art, and more. She took me to places I would not have known about going to. She chose a great restaurant for lunch and she was just fun to talk to. We spent 6 hours together and I was engaged the entire time.
