In just 2 hours, you’ll be able to see The Constitution Square, Reforma Avenue, the National Palace, the main building of the old Aztec City, Tenochtitlan, and so much more.

Growing up in the unique Mexico City, I was constantly surrounded by such a diverse and bold culture and was always fascinated with people. I loved spending my time people-watching or watching TV shows that highlighted people’s unique lives. I loved watching shows about street performers or artisans. My fascination with people has been instilled in me since a young age.

I studied international business in college and got a standard job after college. Eventually, the business I worked for closed down. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise, because leaving my job helped me find my true passion. With plenty of free time, I decided to start running. I was hooked immediately. It was great exercise and a great way to explore my city. One day I came across an article about sight-running, which is when you do a tour of a city while running instead of walking, and how it was the new trend in tourism. It all just clicked for me, and I decided to start a sight-running tourism business. It combined my new passion for running with my childhood fascination with people and culture. I am never happier than when I am running around Mexico City showing people all that it has to offer.
