Tour description

Hi, I'm Santiago! The proudest citizen of Guadalajara. I love this city and I am ready to share that emotion with you.

Let me be your guide to understand the center of Guadalajara with my help. You will stay like a local walking through the most famous places of this magical city.

We will be on this hike for approximately two and a half hours. During this time we will visit the most iconic places that downtown Guadalajara has to offer: this ranges from the iconic cathedral to the chaotic local market as well as  

  • Roundabout
  • government palace
  • Throat cut theatre
  • hospice cabins
  • ...and more places

Not even the locals will know that you are a foreigner after we finish our tour!

The tour ended up just being my family. Saw lots of places in the area & gained more info than we would on our own! Informative & accommodating of a teenager & senior citizen! Highly recommend!

I recently had the pleasure of taking a tour with Tiago and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Tiago was an excellent guide from start to finish, with a wealth of knowledge about the area and its history. They were also incredibly personable and approachable, making me in the group feel comfortable and engaged. Throughout the tour, Tiago shared countless interesting and insightful stories about the area, and provided a level of detail that really brought the history to life. He also took the time to answer all of our questions and engage in lively discussions with the group. One particular highlight of the tour was when he took us to a local market and showed us the best food stalls to try. Not only was the food delicious, but it was clear that he had developed strong relationships with the vendors, which added to the authenticity of the experience. Overall, I cannot recommend him highly enough. If you are looking for a knowledgeable, personable, and engaging tour guide, look no further than Tiago.

Santiago is an excellent and very passionate guide. He loves showing Guadalajara to foreigners and I learned so much during the tour. Felt like touring the city with a local friend. Surely one of the best walking tours I’ve ever been on. Can only recommend this tour! :-) muchísimas gracias por todo!
