Javier drove us on a truly private tour to see the caves and the city of Taxco. On the way there he first told us about different parts of Mexico City, and then the other areas we drove through like Cuernavaca on our way to Cacahuamilpa, mentioning what kinds of people the different cities attracted. The caves themselves were breathtaking and humongous, pictures cannot capture how large the space in the caverns is. Taxco was a beautiful city with a rich and interesting history explained to us by another private tour guide through the city. The 3D landscape of the city make it funnily feel like it should be near a body of water, when in fact its surrounded by mountains. The lunch we had in a secluded part of the Taxco restaurant with its spectacular view was one of our favorite parts of our Mexico trip. Javier was friendly, funny, informative, and always happy to answer any questions we had about the areas and Mexico more generally.

Great tour throughout the historic area of Mexico City. The tour involved both the Aztec and Spanish History and was not afraid to touch on some controversial topics in order to educate on the culture and history of this amazing city. 3 hours was all filled perfectly and at the end our guide gave us some great recommendations for food and other sights. Highly recommend this tour for first time city as it gives you a great idea of what to do next.

Angela is a fantastic guide--very knowledgeable and juggled both Spanish and English speaking tourists with ease. It felt like just the right amount of time at each stop. Our driver navigated traffic calmly and efficiently. Thank you both for a wonderful tour!

This was a fun and interesting tour where we got to learn a lot about the ancient history of Mexico City. Our guide Jorge was very knowledgeable and friendly.

Our tour guide Francisco and the bus driver Huge were super nice and accommodating with us. The overall experience was nice
