We provide two basic kinds of tours: (1) PERSONALIZED PRIVATE TOURS and (2) ORGANIZED GROUP TOURS.

PERSONALIZED PRIVATE TOURS are designed based on your interests, your needs and your schedule.

We can put together a tailor-made itinerary based on what you want to do.  We work in English and Spanish.

Art, architecture, history (be it pre-Hispanic or viceregal), walking tours, handicrafts, ecclesiastic art, markets, shopping, food, smaller out-of-the-way towns and villages – you name it, we can put it together for you!

We have grouped our most requested routes under two categories – Mexico City Tours and Nearby Tours (click on “Mexico City Tours” or “Nearby Tours” to get an idea of the activities most in demand), but be sure to let us know if you want to do something that doesn’t appear in those sections.  We will be happy to make recommendations and put together a custom-designed tour just for you.  We are FEDERALLY licensed and have formal permission to work anywhere in Mexico – whether it be for a general overview of the city or for a very specialized area of interest.

We are not a large “cookie cutter” tour company.  Our niche is exclusive visits, working closely with our clients to suit their individualized needs and timetables.  We will work with you to provide suggestions and design activities depending on what you want.

IN A NUTSHELL, PERSONALIZED PRIVATE TOURS include a 3 hour minimum visit to the site(s) of your choice.

FEE: $50 US dollars per hour (NOT per person) for up to 10 people (for more than 10, please contact us for rates).                     Payment may be made in Mexican Pesos, US or Canadian Dollars or Euros.

This does NOT include entrance fees, transportation or refreshments.

WE HAVE A STRICT 48 HOUR CANCELLATION POLICY IN EFFECT FOR ALL TOURS

ORGANIZED GROUP TOURS are pre-planned visits, which we have schedule on fixed dates to predetermined sites. You can see what we have programmed by clicking on the “Calendar” button.  These tours are open to anyone, and are usually in English (occasionally we offer scheduled group tours in Spanish).

IN A NUTSHELL, ORGANIZED GROUP TOURS last about 3 hours.

FEE: $350 Mexican Pesos per person per tour payable on the day of the tour. This does NOT include entrance fees, transportation or refreshments.
