Full description

Embark on a full-day guided tour to some of Mexico City's most famous landmarks. Discover more about Mexican culture and history with your guide as you visit Tlatelolco, the Pyramids of Teotihuacan, and the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

After being picked up from your hotel or accommodation, travel with your guide to the first stop on the tour, Tlatelolco. This ancient pre-Columbian landmark is located at the Plaza de las Tres Culturas, and is an important archaelogical site. It is also notoriously known as the location of the 1968 Tlatelolco massacre. Following this, travel onwards to Teotihuacan. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the city is estimated to be 2,500 years old and contains some of the most significant Mesoamerican pyramids, such as the Pyramid of the Sun and the Pyramid of the Moon. Climb to the top of these pyramids to get a spectacular view of the “City of the Gods” and the surrounding valley. After exploring the ancient city, stop for lunch at a traditional Mexican restaurant, at your expense.

After lunch, make your way to the final stop on the tour at one of Mexico’s most important Catholic pilgrimage sites, the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Dating back to the Spanish conquest of the region, the site has undergone multiple transformations throughout the centuries and has remained an important destination for the Catholic community of the country. Afterwards, enjoy transportation back to your accommodation to finish the day.

Our guide was wonderful - very knowledgeable and happy to chat and answer any question we came up with. The sites were mixed in terms of interest levels. Shrine to Lady of Guadalupe was fascinating from a people watching perspective and seeing the impact of subsidence on the older buildings, the temple complex was impressive but not an awful lot of information available other than via the guide book and the guide. And the local meal was very much for a foreign tourist palate. But in terms of value - can't fault it!

Mario (tour guide) and Alfonso (driver) were incredible! They made sure that we got to see everything, answered all of our questions, and never rushed us to any of the destinations. The amount of history we learned was immense and super interesting. One of the best tours we’ve ever went on - would HIGHLY recommend!

The tour was very well organized, the only pity was that we could only take a quick look at the site at the Square of the 3 Cultures, as it was closed due to a state visit. Because we were only 3 people on this tour, the guide responded to all our wishes. His explanations in English were such that you could understand almost everything even with little knowledge of English. Mario was really great, thanks again for this very nice and informative day
