Free Walking Tour Merida

A tropical and historical wonder, the White City welcomes you!

Free Merida Walking Tour

Merida, or the White City, is a lot of things but what it is not is a place you will regret visiting. It has both the comforts of a developed city and the charms of a small town. The local architecture will captivate you, the nature and weather will amaze you, the history will intrigue you, the food will delight you and our guides will make your trip unforgettable.

The city that was created out of limestones taken from the old Mayan temples is now a jewel of colonial architecture. It is located in the heart of the Yucatan Peninsula, which makes it a perfect starting point for daytrips to Chichen Itza, Cenotes, and many other wonders nearby.

Our guides are there to provide you not only with a wonderful free tour but also excellent tips about where to eat, where to drink, where to go dancing, and basically to answer every other question you may have about how to best enjoy your time in Merida and in Mexico.

Besides the free tour offered in the City Center, we also offer "paid" tours, such as Street Food Tour.

What visitors think about Free Merida Walking Tour?

Awesome Walking Tour w/ Carmina
Rating: 5 out of 5
Highly recommend this free tour! Our guide on this tour was Carmina and she was very knowledgeable about the history of Merida and all the sites that we visited. I found it valuable to really dive in to the story of each building we visited rather than just walking by it if I were exploring the city alone. At the end of the tour, she gave excellent recommendations for restaurants, bars, and any special events that may be happening in the city during my stay. Although tour is free, the guides work based off tips, baseline is 200 pesos roughly $10 US. Well worth it!! Joseph C

My wife and I spent a bit more than two hours with Fernando. He is very knowledgable, enthusiastic and was very eager to share all of his knowledge and gave good recommendations. Even though quite a few things were closed due to Covid restrictions, he showed us a lot of different places that we otherwise would have missed. I highly recommend taking this tour and hope his business is picking up soon. He definitley makes your time worthwile. Sebastian L

Ivan our tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative. The tour was about two hours however the distance walked was not excessive. Most sites were just across the street or withing a block of each other which was convenient. It was extremely hot and sunny but Ivan found plenty of shaded areas to regroup and talk. We were extremely happy with this tour. Philip R

Frequently asked questions about the tour


In Parque de Santa Lucia (by the big chairs). Look for the pink umbrella or bag


Generally yes, but with this times of pandemic is better to make a booking in order to confirm there will be a tour running on the day you want.


The most common question. People ask why we offer a tour at no upfront costs that other companies offer for $25-$35/person. Well, we feel that everyone should have the chance to enjoy a tour at a price you think the tour was worth, so just think of our tours as “choose your price”. However please understand the the guide only receives a fraction of the tips, the rest is used to pay for administration and publicity and other expenses, in general people give an average of $10 usd or 200 mxn per person as in any city in the world, in other words: Don’t like the tour? Don’t waste your money! Love it? Then we appreciate whatever you feel is fair for our work. We are that confident in the quality of our tours and guides. Can you get any better than that?


This is difficult, as guests will be coming from many different places. The meeting point is very central and any staff of your hotel/hostel can tell you how to get there just be sure to be on-time. Please look at the google location.


The guide cannot take phone calls during the tour so if your are 20 minutes late or less you can send a WhatsApp message to +5215517855455 (whatsapp only). After 20 minutes it becomes very difficult to guess where the guide might be.


Almost never! Dress appropriately for the conditions, during hot days wear sunblock and during rainy days an umbrella will help, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. However, extreme weather will certainly cancel or postpone the tour.
