Hello friend! I am José but people usually call me Jay. I'm a local guru from Mexico City. I consider myself to be a charismatic person with a great ability for interacting with others. In other words, I'm a people person. I was born and raised in my beautiful Mexico city which I consider a vibrant and unique place. I also enjoy art and studied history during my entire career as a sociologist. One of my personal fascinations from this city has always been the murals, which I believe are the perfect synthesis for understanding Mexico's art, culture and history. I also know this city can be a bit overwhelming therefore my mission is to guide others to make their time much more enjoyable. During my journeys around the world, I have found that one of my top skills is my English level since I grew at a bi-cultural British school and even had the opportunity to live a whole year in Newfoundland, Canada. Therefore I can also help you with any kind of questions you have about both the city or your trip.

About the tour

I believe murals are the perfect excuse to get to know Mexico City's colonial downtown.

We'll start with Diego Rivera's hidden mural of The Alameda Park ($35 pesos) just next to Barrio Alameda. Then we'll cross the beautiful and well preserved park and into the astonishing Palacio de Bellas Artes ($70 pesos). Inside we will see all sorts of murals including some by the big ones of Mexico's Muralism: Siquerios, Orozco and Rivera's Rockefeller.

After we'll take a small detour to watch the unique Palacio de Correos. And then to Orozco's hidden mural inside the beautiful House of Tiles.

On our way to our final destination we'll take another quick detour to a flokloric and traditional Candy Store which inspired Rivera's painting of The Alameda.

The tour finnishes at El Zocalo, a place that was thought by the Aztecs as the center of the World.

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!
