Mexico City Architecture Walking Tours
Mexico City Architectural Tours can focus on traditional buildings, contemporary buildings or both. The Mexico City Architecture Tour is typically an introduction to the city’s main buildings, but it can be tailored to your group’s interests.
Walking Tours of Mexico City can involve basic advice ahead of trips about types and areas of Mexican buildings. We try to accommodate your architectural interests on our Mexican Architecture Tours.
We can assist your itinerary preparation by providing information on geographical areas and building types ahead of your Mexican architectural tour. For example a group interested in Mexico City office buildings could receive information that allows a tour programme to be agreed prior to their visit to Mexico.
Visitors can be met from the airport, their accommodation, or at the starting point of their architecture walking tour in Mexico.
