What people are saying about State of Mexico

Viktor was an excellent tour guide (chef by trade) who took us to 7 fantastic spots, many of which were already featured on popular restaurant lists (ie Eater), so we were pleasantly surprised by the restaurant selection! We were staying in Polanco and it was nice to discover new parts of the neighborhood that we would never have known existed if it weren’t for the tour!

Emiliano was the best! The history, anecdotal information, clear responses to the group’s questions and his humor made the 3 hours wonderful. I left with knowledge and appreciation for this area. Thank you!!

Liliana was a fabulous guide, showing us both the famous landmarks and some spectacular lesser known places.
