Full description

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 experience on this tour of Teotihuacan, Tlatelolco and the Basilica Of Our Lady Guadalupe was absolutely incredible. Informative and detailed in a fluid pace, with amazing historical knowledge delivered by our tour guide Marcos with passion and purpose. Juan was a great driver! Marcos' fervent dedication to sharing Mexican History with our group was resonant and strong and this made the trip enjoyable and abundant. The group size (7 people including our party) made it easy to absorb info and connect with other travellers, and was a comfortable number for both the drive in the van and the walking portions. Ensure you prep for a full day out; bring comfortable shoes, clothing, water, snacks, and any other items that might support your journey.

Our tour guide Alan Fernando and our driver Joel were both wonderful. They were great in communicating with us in the days leading up to our tour and were courteous, knowledgable, and patient during the tour as well. For what you pay, you get a lot of value and time from this tour. Highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Mexico City, especially if you can get Alan Fernando as your guide!

My sister and I had a wonderful day on this amazing tour. Francisco was such a knowledgeable and friendly guide, and Eduardo was an excellent driver getting us place to place. We loved the opportunity to see three incredible, culturally significant sites in one day, and Francisco gave great historical context for each. Highly recommend!
