Tour Mexico City


WHY USE ME?
You are looking for the unique experiences – something that not everybody has seen before. Something that you would’t find on your own – secrets that not even the locals know about. Learn about the relationship between cultures, history, art, food, and nature. With me you will get more out of your stay in Mexico City, as you are guided into the best of what this region has to offer.

A private tour guide offers more than the common city audio guides. I can be everything from your personal travel companion during your stay to a tour guide for a larger group that wants custom made programs. I know the attractions, the stories, the anecdotes and the most beautiful pearls of Mexico City.

ABOUT MEXICO CITY
Mexico City is the capital and most populous city of Mexico. As a global city, Mexico City is one of the most important financial centers in the Americas. It is located in the Valley of Mexico (Valle de México), a large valley in the high plateaus at the center of Mexico, at an altitude of 2,240 metres (7,350 ft). The 2009 estimated population for the city proper was approximately 8.84 million people, with a land area of 1,485 square kilometres (573 sq mi). The Greater Mexico City population is 21.2 million people, making it the second-largest metropolitan area of the western hemisphere, behind New York City and the largest Spanish-speaking city in the world. The average annual temperature varies from 12 to 16 °C (54 to 61 °F), depending on the altitude of the borough. The temperature is rarely below 3 °C (37 °F) or above 30 °C (86 °F).

PASSPORT
Bringing your passport is not enough! The passport must be valid for six months after leaving Mexico. And it must have one empty page for the stamp. Also, you must keep the stub they give you when you enter as you must give this back when leaving. Please check your passport well ahead for your trip.

FLIGHTS
I recommend you book your flights at the same time you book your tour with me. In order to get the best flight prices book the trip at least one month prior to your actual visit. If you need assistance let me know.

Check out Momondo or Skyscanner to find the best flight prices and book your flight.

VISA
Travelers from the US do not need a visa. You will have to fill out an information card about your stay in Mexico before you land. Where they ask for your address fill in the adress of the hotel you will be staying at. You must keep the stub they give you when you enter as you must give this back when leaving.

TRANSFERS
I will send a car for you. Please send me your arrival time and your flight information, so I can keep myself updated on any changes in arrival time.

TRAVEL INSURANCE
Make sure you have valid travel insurance. Loosing your luggage can be more than annoying, but having to see a doctor without having proper health insurance for your trip can be extremely expensive! I recommend Travelex for all your vacation needs.

HOTEL
There are many hotels in Mexico City. I have three different hotel recommendations you can book to include low, mid, and high price ranges.

A highly recommended website is Booking.com to read reviews and see amenities for different hotels in Mexico City.

LANGUAGE HELP
You may want to purchase a Lonely Planet book to help with your Spanish before arrival. It truly comes in handy.
