Traveler pickup is offered
Complimentary pick-up/drop-off is included: please indicate the exact time & location for your pick-up during your booking (e.g. in the "Special Requirements" field). If you cannot find this field, just reply to the booking confirmation that you get to your email with your pickup details, message us in the platform or call the number indicated on your booking confirmation at least 24h before the tour. We can pick you up from hotels and apartments situated in the following parts of Mexico City: Downtown, Reforma, Polanco, Condesa, Roma, Centro Historico; other more remote locations might involve an extra fee.

The default departure time for this tour is 8 am but it can be adjusted per your request with the earliest departure at 7 am. Our guide will come to pick you up at your accommodation at the requested time and might contact you by phone if needed, so please be sure that the number you provide during the booking is valid and can be reached on the day of the tour. 

The standard duration of the tour, as advertised in its description, is calculated from the moment of pickup till dropoff. At the same time, the tour is customizable which means the time you spend in each destination can be adjusted to your needs: e.g. if you want to visit an extra location (attraction/restaurant/market etc.), you can do it on a complimentary basis if this visit (1) still fits total duration of the tour and (2) doesn't involve change of the route (is on our way). In this case, we can shorten the stay at a particular destination included in the program so that you have time to visit the place you are interested in. Other changes such as the extension of the tour, change of the route or adding extra participants, should be communicated to us at least 48 hours before the tour and will involve extra fees.

Picked up on time at my hotel and we drove down south into the states of Morelos and Guerrero. Just the driver-guide and me. It was a great tour. First we went to Xochicalco, which blew my mind away. It's a much neglected site as far as tourists are concerned, as it's not well
