I had a one-day stopover in Mexico City on my way home from Oaxaca. Another traveler had recommended Strawberry Tours and I signed up for the tour of the centro. Our guide, Gabriel, was outstanding. He was very personable and accommodating, in addition to being extremely knowledgeable. After our tour ended at the Templo Mayor, I retraced many of our steps and visited some of these places in greater depth. I returned to my hotel exhausted but convinced I had gotten the very most out of my day. I can't imagine a better introduction to the city — it made me want to return and see more.

My mom and I did the free walking tour of the historical center in Mexico City with our guide, Hermès. He was an excellent guide—very informative, passionate about Mexican history/culture, and funny! The tour ran about three hours long but we definitely hit all of the great historical spots and got an amazing history lesson from Hermès! Highly recommend this tour!
