Covid-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

Take in the three most culturally and historically important sites in the Mexico City area on a full-day tour. First, visit the archeological site of Teotihuacan and marvel at some of the most impressive pyramids in the world. See the Sun and Moon pyramids, the Temple of Quetzalcoatl, and the Dead's Avenue. Next, you’ll head to Mexico’s most important Catholic pilgrimage site, the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe. This shrine was built to commemorate the reported appearance of the Virgin Mary to Juan Diego, an Aztec peasant. The third and final stop of the tour is Tlatelolco, where it is said that the past, present, and future of Mexico meet. The Plaza de las Tres Culturas is named after the three periods of Mexican history represented by structures from the pre-Columbian, Spanish colonial, and the independent mestizo nation.

Our guide was knowledgeable, he spoke both Spanish and English fluently. The tour is nice, the visit at the obsidian workshop was interesting but the restaurant after the pyramids was the worst place I tried this week (food is not included in the tour fee). Beware, the traffic can add extra time to the tour: in our case it was not 7 hours but 8 hours from the last pick-up point, 10.5 hours in total.

This was a fantastic tour, well planned with enough time to see everything along the way. The pyramids were certainly the highlight. Our tour guide (Marco) was so thorough, giving us lots of background context to the historical sites, and also contemporary Mexican history. We enjoyed his passion for history and the way he explained global politics in the context of post-colonial Mexico. We had a stop off along the way to a local store where we could purchase locally produced goods, and sample the local liquor. This was not really necessary, as the liquor itself was not very nice to drink. I think this part can be skipped. Overall, this was a very good tour, and one not to miss.

We had a lovely tour with Ines - a competent English-speaking guide. There was so much to see and Ines explained a lot of the history and cultural elements well. She even had a binder full of pictures and items she passed around the bus to help visualize everything. Standard buffet lunch, but with the option to order from the menu instead which I enjoyed more. Was told the night prior that our pick-up time would be 8:40am, had received an email stating 9am. The morning of, got a message that the tour bus would be picking us up in 10 minutes and ended up getting picked up at 8:25am. So be sure to have an earlier breakfast and anticipate being flexible with changes. One of the couples in our van missed breakfast entirely.
