I was born and raised in this wonderful city, and I love my culture and enjoy sharing it with new people. I worked for a tourism publication as an art director for ten years and then became a certified tour guide. I will be glad to show you how us locals get the most out of our beloved hometown. In some cases, Efrain, a mate who is also a certified tour guide, will asist us in order to offer the guest a better experience. Besides this experience, I have started another fantastic one in the Imperial Castle of Chapultepec (https://www.airbnb.mx/experiences/339749), come and join us to visit it!

The tour was for my mom and aunt, and they were both delighted. They say Alejandro was very special to them and that he knew a lot about the subject. If they could, they would rate him 10 stars. In my case to coordinate with him, he was great, attentive and willing to help me so that they could have the best experience.
