Luis and Lucrecia
Born and raised in Mexico City, I’ve always been obsessed with exploring my hometown. I have taken advantage of every commute to work or school to get to know the city’s neighborhoods better. Between the city’s art and iconic architecture, you’ll never be bored here.
I decided to study tourism because I wanted to share what I got to see everyday of my life with visitors. I love taking people around the city, and one of the best ways to do that is on a bike. For years, I’ve been an enthusiastic cyclist and my job keeps me in motion. I’ve created a few different circuits so my guests can see the most interesting and beautiful sights in Mexico City. This is one of the best cities for biking and culture and I would love to share it with everyone.
Born in Argentina, I now reside in Mexico, my beautiful adopted homeland. After falling in love with Mexico and falling in love with a Mexican, I now pridefully call this country my home of three years. At first, I was enticed by the spirituality of Mexico's pre-hispanic culture and the colorful diversity that the country has to offer. But then, my love of traveling, meeting new people, and coming into contact with their cultures inspired me to pursue my passions by becoming a full-time travel agent. After spending some time in both hotel and restaurant management, I realized I might find greater joy in showing others the same diversity that inspires me.
I've always been an extrovert and eager to learn from people and cultures different from mine, so the transition to being a travel agent was nearly seamless. My love of traveling has pervaded even my most basic hobbies. In my free time, I really enjoy traveling to new and unexplored places on my bike. It allows me to experience so many things I enjoy: spending time with my husband, feeling the gentle breeze on my cheek, and discovering exciting and charming new locations. From all my experience traveling, I've learned that the best way to learn about a new culture is by meeting its people.
