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 meet up with your guide at a downtown university in Mexico City’s lively historic center. As you wander its bustling streets scanning colonial facades, 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 downtown Mexico City.

It was a pleasure to host your group for this special celebration! Whenever we receive a big group booking like this one, we do our very best to make sure there is a good ratio of hosts/guides to visitors, so that everyone can stay engaged, have some fun, AND be well taken care of. We LOVED touring with you! Thank you for entrusting Stylewalk MX for the big day! And also many thanks for your wonderful comms in the tour planning stages. It always helps polish the plan when when we have clear guest input and feedback :) Sending you a BIG Feliz Cumpleaños (Happy Birthday) from Mexico City, Laura

The tour was interesting and we saw some interesting graffiti, but everything was on a two block radius and it was very slow. It could have definitely been done in less than 2 hours. Also, the explanations were very minimal, we mostly had to ask questions in order to lear more.

We are sorry to hear that your tour with Alex did not meet your expectations. It has been difficult to reconcile your feedback because Alex's last review - just one day before yours - says: "Alex pointed out many spots we likely would have missed & we loved hearing his knowledge on each piece - from the backstory of the artist(s) to how the piece came together (many are collaborations) & the historical or cultural significance of each piece. " We understand that every visitor has different needs and assessment criteria, but nonetheless there have only ever been positive responses regarding Alex's level of knowledge and personal input. Our street art guides understand that every tour guest has a different level of prior knowledge about the subject, and that therefore a big part of their job is to adapt and personalize the content and pace according to the person. Fortunately as they are active street artists themselves, there is actually no limit as to how much detail they can give! Once again are sorry you found the tour 'interesting' and the 'graffiti interesting' but didn't feel that overall it was worth it. If you had let us know in person, we would have happily reimbursed you. We wish you a wonderful 2020, with many stimulating adventures and travel stories! Best, Laura

Our guide, Alex, was awesome - we had the best time. Our group of 4 women are not well-versed in street art, merely just art lovers, and this was a great way to learn about the scene in a relaxed, casual way. Alex pointed out many spots we likely would have missed & we loved
