Fabio è stato eccezionale in tutto. Assolutamente consigliato perché preparatissimo, disponibile a qualsiasi richiesta e simpatico. Senza il suo aiuto sicuramente ci saremmo persi molto di Città del Messico. GRAZIE!

One of the best tours I’ve had in my life. Fabio is very knowledgeable and practical . He will provide you with more information than your typical tour, while keeping things fun and interesting. Very highly recommended. Uno de los mejores tours que he hecho en mi vida. Fabio sabe muchísimo, es práctico y profesional. Te dará más información que la que recibes en un tour promedio, siempre en un ambiente divertido y ligero. Primera vez que no me aburro en un tour de mas de 1 hora. Altamente recomendado
