Discover Mexico Walking Tours

Learn about Mexico City and Teotihuacan

Fun and history on every corner


I offer guided walking tours of downtown Mexico City; of Teotihuacán, where the pyramids of the Sun and of the Moon are located; of sites relevant to the painters Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, including places where they lived and worked; and of locations linked to the St. Patrick’s Battalion, a unit that included American, Irish and German soldiers who fought with Mexico against the U.S. in the war of 1846-48.

Posted tour fees are for 1 to 3 people, with 6 persons being the maximum. Tours are offered in English or Spanish. Contact me to make a reservation.

Payments can be made through PayPal or on the day of the tour. A reservation of at least one week before the desired tour date is recommended. Transportation and admission fees are not included in the posted tour fees.

I can arrange transportation with a private hotel-based driver, or Uber or a similar service can be used. Those transportation costs and admission fees can be added into the final tour fee when the details of the tour are worked out.
