Alejandro's walking tour was the highlight of our weekend trip to CDMX. I had been to CDMX in 2018, and I learned a lot more about the history of Mexico City than I had at previous tours. He gave us a lot of fun facts and pointed out certain places we should visit more in depth. Overall a great easy 2.5 hr tour giving us an introduction to Mexico City's past and present. Loved it!
