I am a founder of the web magazine "Viajeros en Ruta", also a founding partner of Turismo Milpa Alta s.c., of the old region called Malacateticpac Momoxco. During the last 10 years, I have dedicated myself to doing what I like the most: to explore my roots. (My chantli-my house or country) In all this time I have known wonderful places. Many of them I have returned several times. Besides being a destination promoter, I am a freelance tourist guide. I have enjoyed unforgettable experiences. In my mind, heart, and soul there are still the sounds of the different languages inherited from our pre-Hispanic grandparents, smells, tastes, textures, music, looks, and smiles of many people. Without forgetting hostels, rancherias, camps in the mountains, long walks, markets, museums, villages, archaeological sites and wonderful natural landscapes. I am a fortunate and also convinced that tourism represents a means of union and understanding between different peoples and cultures.

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!
