Full description
After being picked up from your hotel or accomodation, 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 accomodation to finish the day.

It was amazing the guide was really cool. Only one problem we’ve got which was spoiled our mood for awhile in the beginning it that we choose they will pick us up from our place, but no. They have only 3 location from where exactly they picking up their people. And what happened no one even gave us a call that we have to go to the other place, even when we were called like dozen times and asked where we have to go, they stopped to pick up our calles. Thanks to the girl in WhatsApp support we actually made it.

Amazing ride. I had never taken a guided tour and it was worth every second! You could see that our guide is passionate about Mexico City and did his job with a lot of love. I loved getting to know the places and I loved, even more, the explanations about the history. I recommend it to everyone!

The company did not give us the right address. We ended up at a place that wasn’t safe per our taxi driver. But he made sure we went to the right place. Our tour guide was excellent! He gave us all the information we needed and waited on us. Our driver was good. He drove us safe to and from the meeting place. The lady who picked up the call was also great in redirecting us when we got lost. She spoke to our taxi driver and was very clear with the directions as to where to go. It was the website that gave us the wrong address!
