The Basics

Designed by Adam Boari, the architect behind Mexico City’s Fine Arts Museum (Palacio de Bellas Artes), the lopsided Templo Expiatorio is often visited during walking and bike tours of Guadalajara. These shared or private excursions typically feature stops at other key landmarks such as Guadalajara Cathedral, and sometimes include food tastings. You can also combine your visit to the Templo Expiatorio with a stop at the nearby University of Guadalajara Art Museum (MUSA).

Gracias, Diego!
A good walking tour, in my opinion, leaves the traveler feeling a certain fondness and appreciation for the latest city they are visiting - it makes you feel that the thousands of miles traversed, the money spent, the carbon emissions spewed(!), have, arguably, been worth it. A great tour, on the other hand, does all of the above, but also leaves one feeling as if they have made a new friend in a land far away from their own - a truly special feeling. That is what I experienced after my wonderful private tour with Diego. Diego is a very welcoming, thoughtful, and gregarious young man whose passion and love for his hometown is clearly evident from the first minute of the tour. Diego provided me with outstanding context - historical, cultural, political, economic -for the various sights we saw in Guadalajara, with a special emphasis placed on the architecture of the city. Diego taught me so much about his city in 3 hours that, as a teacher myself, I felt that the price of the private tour was arguably the bargain of my weeklong stay in Mexico. I have visited over 30 countries and taken numerous walking tours on different continents, and Diego's tour easily stands as one of the best I've experienced. Make your booking before it's too late. And, once again: gracias, Diego, for a memorable afternoon. Take care, mi amigo.
