Diego was very knowledgeable, accommodating, courteous and efficient. Superb command of English. Thoroughly enjoyable tour in which I learned much about the history of Mexico.
Wouldn't change a thing. The tour did just what we wanted it to – provide an introduction to the history, culture and arts of Mexico. Ignacio was the perfect guide.
Julio was very knowledgeable and the information and locations he chose to discuss were great. His pace was good and allowed enough time to ask questions. He was very capable of answering all of them. It was noticeable he truly understood Mexico City very well. Nothing, actually.
