“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.”
When Gabriel advised us on day 1 that he had 11 years of guiding experience and that he was licensed to guide anywhere in the country, I knew we were in hands of someone capable. Usually we would be getting local guides at various sites we were visiting but this was not the case here - Gabriel guided the entire tour, including all key archeological sites. The vastness of his historical knowledge and ability of impart it in a easy to understand way was excellent. I am still impressed by his ability to just pull out historical facts and dates off the top of his head! It was impressive and not to be taken for granted - I have travelled extensively and this level of knowledge is rarely seen.
Gabriel is a personable and approachable guy. The atmosphere of the trip was relaxed but we still stuck to the itinerary and timelines. He was always willing to help and provide information, as well as recommendations for activities, dinner etc. Gabriel has a lot of local knowledge - he has obviously travelled this trail numerous times - and it was great to have that at our disposal.
My experience with Gabriel on this trip was excellent, one of the best I've had and I would not hesitate to travel with him again. Thanks Gabriel for making this trip to Mexico so awesome.

Our tour leader had excellent knowledge and encouraged us to interact with the locals. I would have done a lot more of that if my Spanish had been better. The RealMexico is a fantastic way to experience the rich culture, food and history of Mexico.Our tour leader was excellent. , friendly and passionate about his country and sharing it with us.
