Discovering the real Mexico City

Ciudad de México, Mexico

Experience hosted by Diego

2 hours
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English, Spanish

What you'll do

We will be walking through the emblematic, traditional and oldest neighborhood, the hidden gem of Mexico city, Santa María la Ribera accompanied by a bilingual local guide, with more than 30 years living in the place. We will visit the biggest library of Latin America, we will see churches, museums and we will experience the real life in the city, entering houses, vicinities, and markets.

Do you think that Mexico City is more than downtown, Coyoacán or Xochimilco? You are right. This is the best walking tour for knowing the real Mexico City for no tourists.
Other things to note
Let me know if you have any special request, we can adjust the time, days, duration or places for you. I only wish that you have a great experience in my neighborhood

This was a great and fun tour. Diego really knew the place and stories. He has a great background and was able to answer all the questions I had. Really interesting guy to talk to.

As the description states, this was a true raw experience of the neighborhood by someone who grew up there and can show you thing you normally would never notice. Very informative, Diego is very knowledgeable and speaks English very well. Also gave great recommendations of places to eat afterwards. Would recommend to a friend.

Diego is an excellent, professional guide. I highly recommend the Santa Maria la Ribera tour, if you are looking to learn more about history and experience a day in a life of a 'real' Mexico City neighborhood. My mother and I would never had been able to discover it on our own. We also liked the fact that Diego keeps the tour group small. We were about 12 people and some of us ended the tour at a great local restaurant for lunch, which was recommended by Diego. All in all, it was a great day out!

Diego was super knowledgeable and made the experience feel very unique and special. I learned a lot on this tour things I would not have known had I just walked though the neighborhood by myself. I loved the unique touches he added and I love the stops on the tour they were so great. I was sad the library wasn’t open I really was looking forward to that. I loved ending the tour in a vecindad with a local man that was sharing his family’s personal story. It was so touching to have him share his life with us I loved that!

Diego was a wonderful host and was very knowledgeable about the area we visited. He did not hold back in providing details about the unfiltered reality of the area. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends.
