What people are saying about State of Mexico

I had no idea what to expect on this tour, but it ended up being one of the highlights of my trip to Mexico City! Ernesto led us through a maze of markets that you would easily get lost in as a tourist, showing us some amazing gems in the endless sea of stalls, including a mole vendor whose various different samplings blew my socks off. We also walked through the historic center where he gave us insight into facets of Mexico City's history that even most locals are unaware of (including some unbelievable artwork that I won't spoil here.) With small bites and drinks along the way, you can expect a very chill and well-paced tour. Ernesto is a very knowledgeable guy, easy to talk to, and obviously cares deeply about making his tours the best experience. I honestly could not recommend it more. It's well worth the time and money. Wear some comfortable shoes. You'll be doing a lot of walking and enjoying every moment of it!

Good opportunity to discover, through comments and different product tastings, the merced and sonora markets but also the surrounding streets and neighborhood with some new and surprising or even impressive places. Ernesto and his colleague pass on their passion for the authenticity and wonders of these neighborhoods to us, thanks to them, we were very delighted and moved by this experience, we highly recommend!

This tour is a must do for anyone travelling to Mexico City - even if you have been there before. You get a real local experience, some of the best food in the city and a tour you will not forget! Neto and Elisa were amazing, friendly, spoke perfect english and super knowledgable. They were also happy to share some amazing tips for the rest of our trip as well.

I really enjoyed this tour. Great way to see some of the city and to learn about the stories behind the street art. The street art itself was amazing. Ivan was was a lovely and informative guide.

What a fun way to see Mexico City, learn about its history and culture. Guide was knowledgeable and having a second helper around to assist with navigating traffic was fabulous
