We skillfully craft epic experiences just for you. We serve as your guides, fixers, translators, connectors, negotiators, and taste-makers so you can sit back and be inspired.
We are long time friends with an ongoing love affair with Mexico City. Having both lived in Mexico for over a decade we have become experts at navigating the city and creating urban explorations for visiting friends. When recognizing an opportunity to focus on the burgeoning contemporary art scene, we melded our interests and expertise into a one-of-a-kind boutique agency to create experiences of a lifetime. When not planning our next adventure, you can find us eating tacos, on Skype, traveling, in a hammock, on a rooftop, or most likely at Plaza Garabaldi.
