Great way to spend a layover in Mexico City
Feb 2020
I really enjoyed my tour with Ana. I learned a lot and it was a great introduction for my first time in Mexico city, traveling alone. A great way to spend part of an 8 hour layover there.

Amazing Tour!!
Dec 2019
Had such a great tour with Ana, very polite and warm and so easy to interact with. You will not be disappointed, she was very knowledgeable and a great photographer too :). I highly recommend this if you have a couple hours to spare in Mexico City, I learned so much in the few hours of doing this tour with Ana. It was an enjoyable walk through the capital city, would definitely do this again.

Best way to spend a layover in Mexico City!
Nov 2019
We had a long layover in Mexico City returning from Santiago to Montreal, and were not looking forward to long, boring hours in the airport. Instead, we booked a tour with Mexico a Pie, and turned what could have been a significant waste of time into a wonderful introduction to Mexico City. Fernando picked us up at the airport and scheduled, and took us downtown, where we met Emiliano, our guide for the day. Emiliano tailored the tour to our interests / desires (starting with great coffee and breakfast in an atmospheric old building, necessitated by our very early arrival in the city!). We spent our time walking around the city, learning about the history, culture and architecture, exploring amazing buildings, and markets selling local produce and handicrafts. We topped off our visit with an incredible taco lunch, after which Fernando delivered us back to the airport in perfect time to check-in for our flight home. It was a fantastic way to spend the day!

What a fantastic tour!
Oct 2019
There can't be a better way to kill off a 10-hour layover than taking this tour! Brenda was our tour guide and was very passionate about the history of the city. It was great to hear the stories about the history and the buildings that make up the historic area. If you have the time, take the tour, it is a must-do!

Gracias Jerry! It’s very important for us that you choose to go out to the city, instead of waiting inside the airport during your few hours here. For sure it beats sitting down, waiting for your flight! Thanks for your review!

Amazing experience!!
Oct 2019 • Couples
The idea of a layover tour was just awesome! We had 12 hours.

Our guide Andreas made it very very easy to book the personalised tour online.

We paid for a 5 hour tour and were very well served.

Andreas was a phenomenally great guide! Very knowledgeable, kind, and enthusiastic!

I have done many many guided tours around the world and Andreas easily ranks in the top 3 of guides that I very much appreciated.

I recommend this tour company 100%

Thank you!

Best way to spend a long layover!
Oct 2019
I'm so glad I did this layover tour of Mexico City. I had a lovely few hours seeing some of the historic sights with Andre, who was very knowledgeable guide. It was a perfect quick taste of what Mexico City has to offer, including a stop to try some delicious tacos. It really made me want to come back and see more. The airport pickup and drop off was very convenient and worked without problems. I have already recommended this tour to others and will continue to do so.

What a great tour to do during a layover
Aug 2019
This was a wonderful way to spend a few hours in Mexico City. I hadn't been there before and Monica my guide, was helpful, informative and fun. She accommodated my numerous food stop requests and gave a really good insight into the history of the city. She was great! Highly recommend this tour for anyone, not just layovers.

Old city walking tour with Andre
I hardly ever write reviews. This is probably one of the first ones. Had to mention what a good experience we had with Andre. He gave a really good customized walking tour to match our speed and preferences, which is a must when traveling with kids. Every stop was very informative with rich historical and cultural references by Andre.

Our flight landed at 5pm or so and we were already on our way to the city by 5.45pm. We spent 4+ hours in the city including an awesome taco dinner.

We are returning to another tour with this company on our next stopover next week and can’t wait for another great experience.

Highly recommended.
