Description

Mexico City’s Historic Downtown remains the oldest neighborhood but don't let that fool you. Once the capital of a mighty empire, Mexico City continues to mutate, grow and evolve into the  mesmerizing, multi-flavored, concrete and volcanic rock jungle that exist today..I’ll pick you up at your lodgings, then if required we'll take public transportation to our destination. We’ll start the morning seeing a huge behemoth made of marble and steel. After a quick stroll through one of the oldest public parks in the city we’ll continue exploring Mexico through its arts, crafts, food, architecture, history and people.

I lived in Mexico City until the age of 5 when my family moved to the French part of Canada. In Montreal I discovered snow, befriended a beautiful white squirrel and got my first taste of school. After two years, my parents were fed up with the cold weather and moved us back to warm and sunny Mexico. I was fortunate enough to go to a private school where I learned English, French and got in touch with several of my passions: reading, traveling, movies and rugby. Ever since, I try to read at least a book per month, try to travel outside my country once each year, have been playing rugby for a very long time, went to film school and worked in the Mexican Film system. When the opportunity to become a guide was presented to me, I took it and haven’t looked back since. I have travelled through most of Mexico and enjoy, very much, the awe and wonder this country is capable of and would like nothing more than to help replicate that sentiment in whoever is with me discovering it at the time.
