Mariel was a great guide. She took us to beautiful places we would not have discovered by ourselves. We really enjoyed this tour.
A tour of hidden gems and the stories behind them

Mariel, our guide, was very well informed and was able to answer all of our questions about the many interesting places we visited as well as life In Mexico City in general. She was able to modify the standard itinerary somewhat to meet our particular interests and needs (e.g., walking through part of China town). We knew we were in good hands with Mariel as our guide. Wonderful experience and tour overall!
Mexico tour with a local

She was very knowledgeable of the places and she gave detailed but brief explanations. She recommended some places we should return to on our time. She was fun and nice. Being with a local also made us feel safe when walking around the city.
Great tour with a local!

Mariel was wonderful--my daughter and I had been here for a week before doing a tour with her and had a lot of questions--all of which she answered. She was very knowledgeable about all of the sites and we had a great time with her. I'd highly recommend her!
