Overview
Tired of museums & history? Want a safe way to experience modern-day Mexico & have some GENUINE interaction with real locals? Come check out Mexico's freshest STREET ART & GRAFFITI on-foot, with an articulate, enthusiastic graffiti artist as your private guide & instant confidante.

This is the tour that the Facebook Latin America chose for their Comms Team when they visited Mexico City. No wonder! It's a fun, BITESIZED dose of living colour, which requires NO previous knowledge to soak up & enjoy!

This 2.5 hour walking tour is 100% private. You don't share it with others. The tour showcases the hottest street-art in lesser-known areas of downtown Centro Historico. You'll learn all about the artists & their techniques, see BIG format murals, punchy Banksy-style stencils, illegal tags & take in their broader politics.

We think the best Instagram memories of your stay should be meaningful, hypercolor fun!
Highlights
  • See the hidden gems and masterpieces of Mexico City’s street art scene
  • Learn about the art’s politics and style from a local artist and expert guide 
  • Customize your tour to fit your creative interests
  • Schedule a tour to fit your itinerary with morning or afternoon outings
What to Expect
Pack a camera, then hook up with your guide at a downtown university in Mexico City’s lively historic center. As you wander its bustling streets scanning colonial facades, you’ll observe large, colorful murals by well-known painters and the work of lesser-known artists in a variety of styles, including wheat-pastes, stencils, stickers and more. Get schooled on the social and political forces that have shaped this subversive art form and learn about the message, format and style of each piece. Then, if you’re so inclined, add your own creative touch to the urban landscape before ending the tour in the downtown Mexico City.

Great to hear how much you enjoyed your tour with our street art expert Alex! We designed this tour especially thinking of people who want to get their hands on the pulse of Mexican life and modern culture, but don´t necessarily want to spend a day in another museum (we have soooo many - perhaps too many!). So happy we met the mark on this and that your group had an awesome - alternative!- day out. I will be sure pass on your regards to our Tour Coordinator, Victor, and to your guide, Alex. We really appreciate it. Safe onward travels, Laura

We spent a wonderful Sunday morning in CDMX exploring the City’s vibrant street art culture expertly curated by DJ, artist and political historian Jocan Deka. His knowledge of the various artists as well as the events that inspired some of the murals was encyclopedic. And he had
