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.

First I don’t usually do reviews. Decided to send a note as this was a really nice day. Certainly worth the money. Francisco our guide was superb, very attentive and accommodating. the whole tour was special from start to finish. Thanks to our driver who kept us all safe. What a team. Couple of tips fir those that read this wee thanks you note. 1. Back 2 sets of seats on the big vans. Don’t do them, can’t see out of the window and very bumpy. 2. Have fun.

We had a fabulous day, our guide Marcos and our driver Rapha were top notch! 100% recommend. Marcos took great care to make us feel comfortable and answered any questions we had along the way - which were few because he was so informative and knowledgeable about each of the stops. It was the perfect day and we couldn't have imagined a better tour. 5 stars!

Absolutely great tour! Punctual and very interesting. Our guide Angela was very attentive, all the small stops were so smooth and efficiently organized. The transportation was very convenient by a new mini bus. The amount of information you receive from the tour is definitely worth it going. The lunch is in the restaurant with a view on pyramids, with mexican food, it was an extra bonus. We also had a stop at the local store where you can learn about aloe vera and taste drinks. Highly recommend this tour.
