This is the BEST tour ever ! Edwardo was a fantastic tour guide. His knowledge, passion and love for Mexico City made this tour an incredible experience. We covered so many suburbs, parks, monuments and city scapes. Riding the bikes was easy, fun, safe and the most perfect way to absorb the sights, cuisine and people of Mexico City. Thank you Edwardo. Highly recommended *****

Ernesto arrived promptly at our hotel to escort us on our three hour walking tour. He is courteous, friendly, and knowledgable. After asking about our interests he tailored our trip to our needs. His political science background made for interesting and historical commentary. We look forward to using his services again on our next trip. Gracias Ernesto!
