While we have been to Mexico several times, this was our first trip to Mexico City. It is a beautiful, modern city and is the largest city we have been to in our travels. We engaged Estigo for 5 days of private tours including a tour of the Condesa and Roma neighborhoods, La Merced market, Xochimilco, the Frida Kahl Museum, Templo Mayor, Chapultepec Castle, Diego Rivera's studio, the San Angel art market, and so much more.
We had so many wonderful experiences and we credit our incredible tour guide Dani. She was so thoughtful and organized in the planning of our experiences providing historical and cultural insights every step of the way. I was fortunate enough to be able to sit in the passenger seat while she drove and while she provided us the facts and stories about the sites and neighborhoods we visited, she also provided fascinating context to what I was seeing out the window. As a United States citizen, I realize my perception of Mexico and Mexico City is colored by my information sources. Dani was able to help me understand the city in a way that only a local and a gifted host can provide.
In addition to the sites on our itinerary, Dani as a fellow foodie, introduced us to incredible food experiences including Tavo for the most exquisite cochinita pibil, tuna tostadas and ceviche at Itacate del Mar, and esquites served boatside in Xochimilco. She also made the trip a lot of fun for our 8 year old.
We really felt like we had a first class experience and will be booking Estigo Tours and requesting Dani the next time we go to Mexico City!
