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.

Our tour guide Gerson, was very knowledgeable and very attentive to all of his passengers on the tour. He treated all with respect and gave additional information if was asked if we had a doubt in misunderstood. This tour was a great way to kick off our Mexico trip and would highly recommend to anyone.

Had the most amazing tour guide, Emmanuel, funny, insanely informative, organized & also patient. I highly recommend this trip. Well worth the value, all the stops were charming & everyone we interacted with was the sweetest. The tour explanations spoke in both Spanish & English were a good opportunity to become more familiar with my Spanish, an added bonus. The timing was perfect, obviously considerate of all people attending the tour. I enjoyed everything. My 17 year old son & daughter also loved the tour. They said it was their highlight of Mexico City. I can’t recommend this tour enough. If you read this, but the ticket now. Enjoy.

Leonardo has been an excellent guide, balancing lots of information with leaving own space and time to visit. Flawless in switching between Spanish and English. Excellent balance of different sites visited. A suggestion: improve the logistics of the pick up at departure, to allow more time for the trip. Thank you!
