Full description

Visit the legendary Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, known as a Basilica de Guadalupe, and the Pyramids of Teotihuacan on this full-day excursion from Mexico City, available as either a private or a small-group tour. Your first stop will be in the Tlatelolco neighborhood of Mexico City and its main square, La Plaza de la Tres Culturas, which is symbolic of Mexico’s unique cultural heritage. 

Continue on to the Guadalupe Shrine, located in the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, close to the spot where Our Lady of Guadalupe is said to have appeared to an indigenous Mexican. Mexico's largest religious sanctuary, the Shrine houses the venerated image of the Virgin of Guadalupe and has been a pilgrimage site since the 16th century.

See the old basilica, which was completed in 1709, and visit the new church, built between 1974 and 1976, after the old church began to sink into the ground. 

Experience one of the most important religious and cultural sites in Mexico as you tour the impressive atrium and interior of the new basilica, which now houses the Shrine. After lunch (not included in the tour price), you’ll head to the great Teotihuacan Pyramids to explore the mystical site with a guide.

See the Temples of Quetzalpapalotl, the Temple of the Feathered Shells, the impressive Pyramid of the Moon, and the Pyramid of the Sun, located along the long Avenue of the Dead. 

Admire the colorful murals and see the Mesoamerican artifacts in the Archaeological Museum as you learn more about this ancient civilization.

It's a relatively large group - a 40-50 seater bus. When we attended, we were lucky and only 25 people. The group is mixed with Spanish and English-speaking people. Our tour guide, Kevin, made an excellent mix to fluently switch between both. That said, it's mentally more exhaustive to listen to the whole content twice (especially for me who understands both languages). Otherwise, it was a very well-executed tour, especially given the group size. From the tour content, the two stops in Mexico City are worth it, the pace is nice, with enough time to explore the areas yourself - the pyramids and also the places in Mexico City. The chosen food place is a bit low quality. Very touristy. I guess that's what you get there near Teotihuacan. That said, I'm sure there are some hidden places which would be nice to have seen chosen...

It was very good, I enjoyed it, our English speaking tour guide was excellent and spoke a lot about the history of the places we visited, I missed the returning bus though because I was 10 mins late and had to pay 52 Pesos for local transport to get back to Mexico City plus a subway ticket for 5 Pesos to get to the Hotel, but it was better than the tour bus because the local transit passes through small towns in its way and only partially takes the highway, it takes about 20 mins more but you get to see all those places and the lifestyle,

Great guide. Nice trip. Word of advice. Don't buy from the overpriced gift shop where they are taking you. Special small stuff you can pick it up at halp price from the vendors all over the place. We paid 1250 pessos for an obsidian disk about 6" diameter, and that was special, and on our way back we found the same thing at 650 pesos. And that was asking price.
