As the organizer of this exciting adventure, I am delighted to share the experience of our first historical walking tours around Mexico City's “Centro” neighborhood. Journey through the centuries as we walk from Templo Mayor to the iconic Palace of Fine Arts. This immersive tour brings out many little-known details often overlooked in the city’s 700-year history, revealing a vibrant cultural tableau that characterizes this incredible city. Each step between the impressive ancient Aztec capital and the opulent architectural marvels of the Belle Époque captures the essence of Mexico City's evolution. Join me in exploring the rich heritage, hidden stories, and captivating landmarks that chronicle the captivating saga of this dynamic megacity.

I was hesitant about doing this because of a lack of reviews but loved this historical walking tour. Cristina has a great depth of knowledge and narrative. At the same time she always manages to keep it light by providing personal stories of some of the men and women that make the tour very intimate. Having the hearing radios allowed me to walk away from the main group and explore a bit without loosing any part of her storytelling. Best part was to try traditional candies in the oldest standing candy store. Try the cocadas!

I highly recommend the night walking tour of Mexico City. Our guide, Mario, was super kind and informative. It was wonderful to learn something of the history and culture of Mexico City. He was a true teacher. The walk is not difficult. The only suggestion I would have for the operators is to make a more definite meetup place, perhaps by a statue near the Bellas Artes Museum. As it was the meetup was at the back of the museum. That covers quite an area. But on the whole it was a great tour.

It was a pleasure meeting Cristina. The tour was very thorough, the pacing was perfect, I learned a lot. Cristina’s explanations and English were really good. She also gave many recommendations for books to further my education and must see places in town. Thank you again for a wonderful time.

amazing !!! great tour guide and lots of background information. definitely recommend it !!
