Dear Dissector. Thank you for your very kind review. As you don´t mention the tour date, I have to do some guessing, but I think you stayed near the WTC and you are a scientist. I truly enjoyed your conversation and company and I hope...More

My wife and I just had Hector show us around Mexico City for 2 days...he was fantastic. We appreciated Hector's depth of knowledge in history, architecture, art and almost everything in Mexico City. Hector is a worldly gentleman.

We used Getyourguide in Mexico City for a 3 hour walking tour. The tour was great with a terrific guide. Her name was Alicia and she was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic. It was a highlight of our visit to Mexico City.
