Full description

Step back in time with admission to Archaeological Zone of Teotihuacan on this day trip from Mexico City. Take in religious sights like the Santiago de Tlatelolco Church in Plaza de las Tres Culturas and the Guadalupe Shrine. Buy some souvenirs with a guided visit to handicraft shores. 

Your 8-hour tour begins in the morning with a visit to the Plaza de las Tres Culturas and the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe – who has been called The Empress of America. At the Plaza de las Tres Culturas you’ll see the 16th-century Santiago de Tlatelolco Church and the remnants of early Aztec temples. The tradition of La Villa de Guadalupe involved a miracle and an American Indian saint. With the vision of the Virgin Mary in 1531 there began a saga that helped convert millions of Indians to Catholicism, and the image became a symbol for Mexican Christians around the world. Today La Villa de Guadalupe is a popular site visited by people of all religions and nationalities. Next on the itinerary is a visit to the famous archeological site of Teotihuacan, approximately 50 kilometers north-east of Mexico City. You’ll see the monumental Pyramids of the Sun and Moon, the Temple of Quetzalpapalotl, and the Avenue of the Dead. This was one of the few cities in the world that was considered worthy of habitation by the gods of the culture. The archeological vestiges of Teotihuacan, such as remnants of the fine pottery produced here, have ended up in museums around the world.

We had a great time. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. He took us around the pyramids and told us stories about the people who lived there. He was a great driver and stopped at a few historical sights along the way which was a great bonus. We would do it again!

Too little time was spent at the main attraction, about 2 hours, at the Teotihuacan Pyramids. The Maguey section of the tour, showing how the Maguey (agave) plant was used, was very interesting but was linked to a compulsory shopping stop. This section showed obsidian carving and polishing, harvesting the center of the agave plant for making mescal and tequilla (a version of mescal), and the traditional use of the leaves for paper, needles, and fiber.

The tour is ok. Get patient cuz you are going with a lot of people and not everybody is on time to leave. The organization at the beginning was little bad but then it was better. The tour guide is very nice, although he speaks too much sometime he is really helpful and patient.
