    We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with José Luis. He was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the activities and places that we experienced during the day. We would eagerly recommend this tour to family and friends.

    We spent a day with our guide, Alicia. She and the driver promptly picked us up at our hotel in Mexico City, and we spent the day visiting Xochimilco, Coyoacan and Frida Kahlo Museum, with a quick stop at UNAM. The ride was safe and comfortable. Alicia provided lots of excellent information as she helped us navigate the many negotiations at the Xochimilco lakes. We loved our "gondola", eating, drinking and buying souvenirs along the way. Our stops at UNAM, the colonial neighborhood and market of Coyoacan, and tour of the Frida Kahlow museum were also fantastic. Our kids are ages 13, 11 and 7 and this tour was the right balance of fun and excitement for the kids, and culture for the adults. We highly recommend this tour and this company.

    Angel was very personable and easy-going. Our private transport was comfortable. We had a really great time at Xochimilco and could have spent more time there. Coyoacan is also very pretty and was a fun side-trip. We enjoyed Angel's insights and knowledge. The Frida Museum was far too crowded for our taste, but having the pre-booked tickets through the tour was VERY helpful. Overall, totally worth and a fun time!

    Our tour guide, Brenda, was great. She was super flexible (even taking us to a local pharmacy for a need that we had), knowledgeable, great pace, and easy to spend the day with. We loved our time with her and we learned a lot about Mexico, art, culture and history with her.

    We had a great time with our guide Arturo and our driver Claudia. We especially enjoyed the Anahuacalli Museum and we didn't realize it was included. They were both very professional and friendly. Most importantly, Arturo had a lot of knowledge to share about Mexican history. We could not have seen all of the things we saw in one day on our own. The line at the Frida Kahlo museum was 2-3 hours but since we were with a tour we waited only ten minutes. I recommend it. Thanks again Arturo and Claudia!

    We had a great driver, Elisio and guide, Jose Luis. They were very punctual, knowledgable, and gracious and patient in a lot of traffic. We were able to do some variations to customize the tour to us. They did not hurry us. Our tour lasted from 9am to 5pm Take the trip and ask for them by name! You will love it!

    We loved this tour- Brenda was a great guide and everything was very smooth and on time. We wanted to skip some aspects of the tour and Brenda and our driver were very accommodating.
