Monkey did not show up. I messaged when I arrived (5min before the tour) and then messaged again 10 min after. Monkey did not respond or come. It was a waste of time. I left after 10 minutes because of the lack of communication. Beware before booking with monkey because they may be a no show and not let you know.

Excelente communicator. Kept the group engaged brought in humor to his presentation. Went out of his why to learn each person's in the group's name and would ask individuals questions throughout the walk. What i personally enjoyed from the presentation was his views on the indigenous practices of light and shadows and the incorporation of them and learnimg to live together in harmony and acceptance with growth.

Today we went on an organized walking tour of an old town of Mexico City. Louis, pictured on the first photo was our tour guide. Never before we had such a beautiful facilitator of sacred union between the earthly/ material world and the spiritual realm. Not only he shared interesting historic facts about the Mexican culture, but offered his wisdom on the role of Aztecs/ Mayans/ their strong connection to the nature, and what it means to be an evolved human being (being loving, respectful of all cultures/ perspectives, non-judgmental, with a free mind and a progressive thinking). Loved the fact that my boys witnessed this man’s magic!
