Mexico’s colorful metropolis has shot to the top of every design lover’s list, with one of the highest concentrations of museums and galleries in the world, an innovative, globally renowned food scene, and a profusion of high-design shops and hotels. On this journey, you can experience the icons and highlights of this culture capital in the company of local tastemakers and curators, with expert-guided tours of the city’s most interesting neighborhoods and visits focused on the groundbreaking work of Luis Barragán, Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo; the nuances of artisanal mezcal; up-and-coming contemporary artists and so much more.

We are committed to upholding the highest safety standards, while providing world-class hospitality and a seamless travel experience.
