We offer three different services: (1) PERSONALIZED PRIVATE TOURS; (2) ORGANIZED GROUP TOURS; and (3) TALKS.

(1) 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 are authorized by the Ministry of Tourism to work in both 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 a tour 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 give you 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 are happy to make accommodate your interests, make recommendations and put together a custom-designed tour just for you.  We are FEDERALLY licensed and have official permission to work throughout Mexico – whether it be a local tour of the capital or a very specialized area of interest.

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

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

FEES:

$50 US dollars per hour (NOT per person) for up to 10 people;

$60 US dollars per hour (NOT per person) for 11-20 people;

$70 US dollars per hour (NOT per person) for 21- 30 people.

(for more than 30 people, please contact us for rates since Federal law requires a second guide over that number)

Payment may be made in Mexican Pesos, US or Canadian Dollars or

Euros.

This price does NOT include entrance fees, transportation or refreshments.

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

(2) ORGANIZED GROUP TOURS are pre-planned visits, with a fixed date and time to predetermined sites. You can see what we have programmed by clicking on the “Calendar” button at the top of this site).  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.

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