Very Enjoyable Experience
Adrian_C, Jul 2023
Very enjoyable walking experience around the city for a first time visitor like me. The tour guide Luis Gutierrez is a local here and is very knowledgeable about the history and the places in this city. Super friendly and down to earth guy. He is very opened to people from all races and walks of life. Highly recommended.

Adrian for me it was a pleasure to accompany you and show you a bit of my city, it is always very enriching to have people from the other side of the world and to be able to live together for a while as good friends, a big hug friend. Your friend Luis.

Fantastic intro to Guadalajara
CathyCreno, Jun 2022
We saw all the key sites of Guadalajara and Tlaquepaque. Roberto gave the whole history of this region, starting with the indigenous people the Spanish called Tapatillos. He shared useful information about great restaurants and activities. He also shared information about how to avoid tourist scams and handicrafts that are actually made in China! Bring water and wear comfortable shoes!!
