Tour description

Get ready to immerse yourself in a fascinating journey through the stories and myths that surround the most iconic corners of this city, full of charm and mysticism.

Our tour begins at the magnificent Constitution Square, known as the Zocalo, the historical heart of the city. Here, between the imposing Metropolitan Cathedral and the National Palace, we will tell you the legend of La Llorona, the weeping woman who wanders the nights in search of her lost children. You will discover why her lament has become ingrained in the Mexican popular imagination.

We will continue our journey through the alleyways of the historical downtown to know the legend of Don Juan Manuel and the devil and other scary stories.

Finally, if you are looking for love we will take you to a place to ask for love.

Daniel is a passionated and warm guy, born and raised in MC. The tour was very intimate (3p) so you could ask him everything right away. However, it was only his second tour and not everything was planned out perfectly. We would definitely recommend his tour, especially for everyone who wants to get to know some folklore about MC. :)
