Looking for guide in Mexico City

I am planning to visit Mexico City in the fall and would like to hire a private guide. Does anyone have one to recommend?

Keep on Travelin'!

Thanks, Robert, that's a cool resource. Here's hoping Covid gets better for us and Mexico before then!

Just a note about Tours By Locals. I've used them a few times. It can be very hit-or-miss. These folks are not professionals and are not licensed or certified in any way, so their level of insight and depth of knowledge may be minimal or impressive. I've had both kinds of guides from that site. You might get someone who walks you around and tells you what each building is. Or you might get someone who can give you historical context and includes some personal stories to go with it. I recommend researching the guides carefully to get a sense of how well versed they are.

Mexico City is fabulous! You will love it. I went without a guide and I loved it, but I stuck to the historic center. I think a guide would be helpful if you want to strike out into other neighborhoods.

Thanks, Lane! I'll definitely do some follow up before selecting a guide. I've always wanted to see Mexico City. We'll only have two nights between a family birthday in Cancun and visiting Oaxaca for Day of the Dead. I really want to see the History Museum at Chapultepec Castle, especially the captured battle flag from the Alamo. I'm planning on the Pyramids and museums on the 2nd day and a guided tour the first day. I know I'll be back to see more in the future.
