What people are saying about Mexico City

We had a wonderful morning with Val, Pame and their team of folks in the studio, market and tortillerias. Everyone was super friendly and knowledgeable,band the street food vendors cooked up such delicious treats for us! The market was fascinating - all the different fruits and veg and sheets of pork crackling! And then the experience of making our salsas, meat fillings and then the joys of wrapping up our tacos - a superb experience highly recommended.

This was a really great tour! I would have enjoyed just a bit more time at the pyramids in place of the time spent at the gift shop, but, overall, it was a really, really great tour and the restaurant that we stopped for lunch was really delicious! I recommend this for sure!

We had a great time on this tour! Alan was very engaging and spoke great English and German. He was very fun to listen to and took great pictures. He gave a great summary of the history in Teotihuacan and gave us an hour to explore ourselves.

El museo es pequeño pero tiene todo lo necesario en información, arte y elementos visuales. La atención es maravillosa y los productos a la venta deliciosos ¡Felicidades!

Marcos was very informative and patient with my family.
