Any recommended private tour guide for a 2-day Mexico city?

by PoppyLV

I am going on a business trip to Mexico city and would love to extend my trip by 2 more days to explore the city as well as to visit the Pyramid of the Sun nearby. I do not wish to travel alone and am looking for a private tour guide, english speaking that can help learn more (and not just visit) the places. Timing is Apr. 17-18. Any recommnedations?

It's a good bet to contact the hotel where you will be staying and ask if they could arrange for a private car/driver ... I would ask for the driver first. I have done this in many places - China, Istanbul, Argentina. I am also a woman traveling alone. I find that hotels in the Starwood chain are usually the best - but I've had responses from some Hiltons too.

thank you very much. I will probably also continue to search for a private guide and arrange it before i get there.

by Laura_Mexico

Well, I don't know if you're looking for a professional tour guide or just a city dweller would do. I could try to be your guide and I guess you wouldn't have such a bad time LOL. What were you expecting to pay for this service? What is the kind of places that you would like to see: museums? churches? just walk around to admire the architecture? special places such as xochimilco? would you want to move around by car all the time or are you ok with using public transportation? I know of some cab drivers that would work for you the entire day but wouldn't be able to really act as tour guides.... Greetings.

Travel Tips for Mexico City

Go to a Football match ( sorry...

by Caleyjag

Go to a Football match ( sorry that would be soccer to all you Americanos !) Great atmosphere, good footie and the inevitable traffic jam afterwards was turned into one big party. Sitting on top of the Pyramid of the sun at Teotihacan watching the sun set.

by Ronald_T

The Alameda Park near the Palace of Fine Arts is a very nice place to relax and having a good walk. It is in the middle of the centre, so it is not far walking to have a bit of peace and sunbathing after a good lunch or other activity. It is much closer then the new Chapultepec Park that have more facilities (see further).

Tequila!

by acemj

Tequila comes from the town of Tequila in the state of Jalisco, but as you would expect, is found all over Mexico and, of course, all over the world. It is distilled from the fermented juices from the hearts of the blue agave plant. Drinks made from just the agave plant can be called Mezcal, but if it's from the blue agave, then it's tequila.

Tequila is usually served in a two ounce glass and should be sipped not chugged like at Spring Break in Cancun! You can bite down on a lime before sipping, but that isn't always done either. There are four main types of tequila: Blanco is clear or transparent and is bottled just after the distillation process. The flavor is strong and the taste of fresh blue agave. Oro is tequila that has colorant added (caramel or "gold" coloring is most common, hence its name). It is a bit more mellow than blanco. Reposado or "rested" tequila sits in oak barrels for between 2 months and a year to allow a bouquet or smell to develop and a little more complexity to develop. I enjoyed these a lot (the one pictured here is good) as they are still relatively affordable and have a developed taste. The last kind of tequila is anejo, or aged tequila, which sits in oak barrels for over a year (even up to 8 years, which would be a "reserva"). These are the most complex kinds of tequila that also cost the most.

So, remember, look for Blanco, Oro, Reposado or Anejo (sometimes Reserva) on the bottle when making your selection.

Football and bullfighthing

by pencho15

In the south of the city, on a place called Colonia Nochebuena, You`ll find the "Azul" stadium and the "Plaza M?xico". Both were intended to be part of the "Ciudad de los deportes" (sports city), a complex designed by Neguib Sim?n and Moises Cosio wich was supposed to also include stadiums for Swimming, Boxing, Fighting, Bowling, Front?n and Tennis. Only the Football and the Bullfighting stadiums were built.
The Azul stadium hosts the Cruz Azul games, it was inaugurated in 1947 with a match between Veracruz (Mexico champion that year) and Racing (From Argentina), the first goal was scored by Aguirre from Racing. The stadium was the first one built with cement in Mexico, and today it is the oldest in the city. All the Mexico City teams played here until 1956 when they all moved to a new stadium. The stadium was abandoned until 1991, when the Atlante moved back here, the Cruz Azul plays here since 1996.
The tickets to see the matchs (saturdays at 17:00) are around $150 pesos, and i must say this is one of the safest stadiums in Mexico.
The bullfighting plaza is beside the stadium, it was inaugurated in 1946 by Luis Procuna, Luis Castro and Manuel Rodr?guez. Some weeks after that the bullfighter Silverio P?rez became the first person to cut an ear and a tail in the Plaza.
The plaza M?xico is the biggest bullfighting plaza in the world (41,262 seats), the statues at the entrance were made by the valencian sculptor Alfredo Just. Bullfights are celebrated on sundays, you should know that in bullfights the bull is tortuted (It is sticked with blades) for a long time before it is killed, I am completely against this activity and I only add it here to give you the most accurate information.
If you are traveling here by car consider there are no parking lots around. You won`t be allowd to enter the Azul stadium with video or photographic cameras.

by morgane1692 about religious articles shop at Basilica of Guadaloupe

...these little Baby Jesus figures are swathed in...bubble wrap?!?! Where is bubble wrap mentioned in the Bible or in any story of the Nativity? I don't think so. Lots of straw, and everyone wore wool cloaks and there was the gold and myrrh and kings and shepherds, but I don't remember anything about plastic wrapping on His arms and legs...hmmmm....
