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!

Santiago was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about Guadalajara and its history. My wife and I asked numerous questions about various topics and he gladly provided valuable information. Our only regret is that we didn’t do this tour until our last day in the city. It would have made our trip a lot better. After the tour Santiago also air drops a list of places for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We ate at one of his recommendations and it ended up being our favorite meal in our 5 day stay Thanks again Santiago!
