Rodrigo and Alfonso were both excellent guides. Very different styles, but both incredibly friendly, informative, and engaging.

Our guide was Evaluz Espejel (Eve), a vivacious young-at-heart who was not only very knowledgeable about the places we visited, but also very passionate about Mexico, Mexico City and travel as a whole. She offered personal insights that may or may not be part of the "script" which made the tour less clinical, less observational and somewhat more participatory given the time constraint. She even sometimes, I felt, included her own little "side trips" (like stopping at a corner of the city, pointing out small detail of architecture or explaining some events currently happening on the street). Our group was small (3 including me), so the tour was quite personal and intimate. I didn't feel hurried at all, especially that I photograph almost anything that interests me. There was enough time to absorb and understand the "sensory assault" (how else could I call it?) that is Mexico City - visual, auditory, smell, taste, touch, even movement, guided expertly by Eve. Consider this: the tour went through exploring ancient history in Templo Mayor, and the Spanish occupation in the zocalo and Metropolitan Cathedral with a pause for refreshments in a charming outdoor food stand, through strolling on the pedestrian only shopping streets full of people, to walking through a restaurant housed in an architecturally significant building, to viewing modern art in Bellas Artes, through to gawking at shops in Chinatown, to tasting various traditional and not so traditional food at the Mercado de San Juan, walking through the lovely French style Alameda Park, and ending in closely examining the famous "Dream of a Sunday Afternoon in Alameda Park" mural at the Diego Rivera Museum. Yup, the tour was certainly stimulating all the senses. As an added health benefit: I walked close to 6 miles (just a little under 10 kilometers), 13,764 steps and climbed an equivalent to 9 floors during the tour. No wonder Eve looks so fit!!

Cesar was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was very patient with all our questions about the transit system and about the different markets, food and neighborhoods.

Alfonso es the best guide to show you how Mexican local life is. In this tour he took us to three different markets: the first one had art and a hidden museum of the work of Diego Rivera's students, was kinda small but full of colour and no tourist at all; after having our atole and a tamal, we took te public transportation to this interesting/spooky market (Sonora) better called "The witchcraft market"; there, we saw a lot of different symbols used by too many different cultures (mayan, aztec, voodoo, santeria, among others), walking through the halls of this market charged with this interesting energy was such an experience! and then... took the subway to "Mercado de Jamaica" which haves three markets in one: food , produce and flowers! lots of colors, lots of different spice-fruity smells, we had a nice lunch of barbacoa tacos and a consome (sort of a broth, very tasty!) and, after walking through the market of flowers: more food: a tlayuda at a very nice and local food court! Totally worth it!
