Editor Picks: Mexico City’s best tours

by Paul Stafford  |  Updated May 9, 2018

The sprawling metropolis of Mexico City, or D.F. to the locals, has one of the highest populations in the world. The city is crowded and energetic and although there are many fantastic sights, most of them are spread out in far-flung corners of the city. This can make D.F. a slightly overwhelming experience for the first time visitor. Therefore a good local tour guide can be a valuable asset to have.

The following list is a good place to start. We have sifted through over 200 different tours on offer in the city and come up with our list of the best five. Each one offers a slightly different experience, but always one that is uniquely Mexican. We based our selection on, among other things, price, authenticity of experience and past traveller reviews.
