Hello Will Glad to hear you had such a wonderful experience with Roberto in Mexico City. Roberto is one of our best hosts and it is always lovely to hear such good feedback. I do hope we will be able to host you again, if not in Mexico City, in one of our other 60 cities worldwide. Kindest Liezel

We had a great tour that included visiting the market, tasting local foods and then the boat ride down the lagoon. Our guides were informative, had a good sense of humor and made for a nice day!
Great day

Well first of all, we had a wonderful guide for the day and floating gardens was part of it.What a relaxing and pleasant experience this was. A couple of hours and the canal was a live with local music, crafts and food. I totally recommend it and if you can snag Alejandro as a guide for this or any other aviator experience do it!

Lovely relaxing couple of hours on the boat with John our guide from city unscripted. Highly recommended
Roy_T, Feb 2020
We enjoyed the day very much, especially our guide and the Delores Omeda museum. The museum was very definitely the highlight. We also appreciated going to a quiet area in the canals.
Xochimilco was great
jetjunior, Feb 2020
We had a great day at the xochimilco gardens, the xochimilco flower market and the Alameda museum with Alan Tanus, our guide. He was prompt, he was remarkably friendly, and he was a wealth of knowledge. He obviously had read our feedback and attempted to cater our trip specific to our requests and interests.
