Fantastic intro to Guadalajara
CathyCreno
, Jun 2022
We saw all the key sites of Guadalajara and Tlaquepaque. Roberto gave the whole history of this region, starting with the indigenous people the Spanish called Tapatillos. He shared useful information about great restaurants and activities. He also shared information about how to avoid tourist scams and handicrafts that are actually made in China! Bring water and wear comfortable shoes!!

Both the guide and the driver were extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. They went out of their way to make sure that we got to see everything we could. We never felt rushed and our guide explained many aspects of the geography and history of this wonderful city.

The tour guides knowledge of the history. We were however told the tour was 8 hours which it was not. The tour of downtown is excellent but the time at the Tlaapaque Market was too short.

The driver and tour guide, Eric and Hernan, picked me up right on time at the destination. Hernan is an experienced guide and he was able to take us to different points in the city (Los Arcos, La Minerva, La Catedral de Guadalajara, El Templo Expiatorio, La Rotonda de los Ilustres etc ). He provided excellent background and history , and even took us to see the murals of local artist Jose Clemente Orozco. Just seeing those murals made the trip amazing. You’ll enjoy his great company and conversation while you walk in downtown Guadalajara in El Centro, and explore the different buildings . Afterwards you’ll visit Tlaquepaque and enjoy local cuisine from a great restaurant that was recommended , and have ample time to explore all the shops. I definitely recommend this trip to everyone that wants to know more about the city and it’s rich history.

My guide Luis was most welcoming and incredibly informative. By the end of the tour I could not say enough for my fondness for Tlaquepaque from Guadalajara. I highly recommend GDL and Luis for his enthusiasm and knowledge.

The tour of Guadalajara was excellent and very informative. And though COVID 19 caused the closure of many historic buildings and museums, Bernice Miramontes, the tour guide, led me to the Cultural Institute Cabanas to view murals from the artist Jose Clemente Orozco. A delight!!

Tour was good unfortunately one in our party was feeling ill and having trouble negotiating the amount of stairs (age 84) we should have done a reset at beginning but instead cut short market tour. Staff is so accommodating I recommend researching what parts are important to you so they can modify tour if possible.

My review of downtown Guadalajara and Tlaquepague
Dennis_M
, Apr 2019
I was visiting Guadalajara for the week on business and looking for a one day tour of the local city that required minimum effort on my part (no taxis, ubers, etc.). I found this downtown tour that included a shuttle service that picked me up at my hotel. This worked all worked out great. The shuttle was on time. Our tour guide, Dante, was wonderful. He has a strong grasp of the history of the the city and provides many insights to the evolution of the area.

En el tour teníamos invitados europeos, y la verdad fue muy penoso constatar la poca preparación del guía que nos fue asignado.
