I've been in MXCT for almost a month already, and I'm still in awe of how many cool little areas there are to hang around. A girl at my hostel recommended this tour and I'm so happy I joined. Brenda is the best tour guide, and I met a bunch of very cool people!

My boyfriend and I came to Mexico looking for places as beautiful as LaRoma. So many pretty buildings and nice food around! We recommend this tour. Gus was also our guide in the free tour in Coyoacan, where Frida Kahlo house is, and that was also pretty interesting.
