What our guests say
My husband, Tom, and I spent a delightful five hours with greeter Oskar Sandoval the last time we were in Mexico City. As we walked and chatted about everything from his family to the time he spent as a student in Vancouver, B.C., we marveled at the art deco architecture in a 19th century neighborhood of Tabacalera, named for a cigarette factory that now houses an art museum. Over a dish of the tobacco-flavored ice cream (surprisingly tasty with maple syrup and strawberries) at La Especial de Paris, in business since 1921, Oskar explained his reason for volunteering as a greeter.
We were very happy to have Oskar Maldonado Sandoval as our tour guide in Mexico City in 2019. His enthusiasm and overall love for his city is contagious. Oskar spent a lot of time with us in various neighborhoods in the city and brought an extensive knowledge and back story to each of the sites we visited. One of the things we loved about him was his suggestions to visit areas that are not on the traditional tourist path and then showing us the wonders of these areas. He also told us about must-see places for us to visit when we traveled outside the city.
