The ‘megalopolis’ that is Mexico City (or Mexico D.F) is actually one of the most multi-layered, multi-faceted and multi-cultural cities on Earth.
Capturing within its cosmopolitan bubble the country’s clash and fusion of ancient, mestizo (mixed) and European cultures, modern sophistication, international finance and industry, an established and progressive art scene, restless urbanity, impressive education institutions and a conscientious youth culture: some even say you haven’t been to Mexico unless you’ve been to its enthralling capital city.
With a simply spoiling amount of things to do, we have a team of expert local guides to show you around with private tours tailored to your interests, as well as a selection of the city’s finest hotels to choose from.

When to go
Located on an elevated highland plateau, Mexico City also enjoys a temperate, spring-like climate all year round with an average temperature of 22°c (72°F).
Mexico City is a capital with a life of its own. Colourful marked hilltops as far as the eye can see, sprawl to the far reaches of the city.
