Tour description

Discover the city known as the “Pearl of the West'' on this magical tour through the heart of
Mexico's most emblematic city. Marvel at the colonial buildings that house the majestic
murals of world renown artist José Clemente Orozco (a contemporary of Frida Kahlo), telling
the story of a city that walks the line between tradition and modernity. Marvel at one of the largest indoor
markets in the Americas, San Juan de Dios with its incredible variety of local products and cuisine. Visit the monuments and government palaces
that weave a tapestry of history and folklore, spanning eras from the Spanish
Conquistadores to the famous outlaw Pancho Villa. Explore the towering Metropolitan
Cathedral and its mysteries of faith and perseverance throughout the many wars that
were waged on this land. Your expert guide will gladly provide you with insights into other
places of interest, as well as local dining and entertainment options.

I had a private tour with Alex because no one else showed up 😊 Alex knows a lot about Guadalajara, it's history, it's monuments, it's people,.... and he also knows how to explain it well. He brought me to places where on my own, I would probably not have been able to enter (city hall, governor palace). These are amazing places with their murals! At the end of the tour, we also visited the indoor market and Alex explained a bit about different dishes, something that is always helpful while traveling. I would highly recommend this tour! A solo traveler from Belgium.

Alex gave us a fantastic tour, equally fluent in English and in Spanish. He was knowledgeable, remembered facts, dates, and interesting stories, and showed and educated us about everything from historical buildings to current culture. Fascinating, enjoyable, and gave us a great basic understanding of the city! Would highly recommend to English or Spanish speakers
