If I could leave a 6 star review I would. This was truly a once in a lifetime experience. Esmeralda (makeup artist) and Rogelio (photographer) are so talented. My husband and I showed up, picked out some traditional clothes, and then Esmeralda went to work with very detailed makeup on our faces, necks, hands, and arms. Rogelio took some photos in the studio and also in various places outside in front of walls, murals, and Xochimilco boats. We really connected with him, he is so passionate about what he does and passionate about his city and country. Rogelio recommended so many places to visit in CDMX and the country of Mexico that we could design a couple more vacations out of his recommendations. We can't wait to try the Oaxacan restaurant he recommended to us tomorrow! We can't wait to see the finished photos, I can't recommend this experience enough.

Words cannot express how satisfying this experience was for me. My fiancee and I both experienced the transformation and took pictures to use as part of our wedding. Rogelio and his team are caring, charismatic, and thoughtful professionals focused on providing an A+ day, which they did. I highly recommend this to anyone interested.

Wow. Wow. Wow. I have done LOTS of Airbnb Experiences around the world and this is HANDS DOWN MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE. First of all this experience wasnt offered during my very short trip to Mexico City. I messaged Rogelio and asked if there was any way he could make an exception for me and he did! Then when I arrived the passion he had for his culture and this experience was oozing out of him with great pride and warmth. They painted me into such a BEAUTIFUL caterina that I didnt even recognize myself. Then the photoshoot and the great care and pride they expressed for me, made me feel like a coveted supermodel! So so so good and sooo worth it! Worth every single penny. Mil gracias! A million thanks!
