Full description

Leave Mexico City behind and discover the cultures that founded it. Choose your closest pickup spot and explore the greater State of Mexico. Learn incredible facts about the cities and sacred sites that thrived before Spanish influence. Your experience begins with a walk through the Plaza de las Tres Culturas. Visit the church of Santiago de Tlatelolco, contemplate the ruins of a pre-Hispanic city, and see the monument in honor of the student movement of 1968. Continue your experience at the Guadalupe Basilica complex and climb the sacred hill of Tepeyac, the place where the Virgin Mary appeared to the Indian Juan Diego. Head to the Chapel of the Roses and enjoy a sweeping view of Mexico City.

During the visit to the religious complex, admire the Chapel of the Indians, the Chapel of the Pocito, and the modern basilica, the place where the sacred blanket of Juan Diego is kept. To finish off your experience, go to the State of Mexico and discover the archaeological complex of Teotihuacan. Explore the archaeological zone and learn about the important history of this significant pre-Hispanic city. In Teotihuacan, you'll have time for lunch at a traditional restaurant, where you can enjoy a variety of typical dishes of the region (costs not included). This activity also includes a visit to a handicraft center, where you can optionally taste liquors of the region (cactus and prickly pear) and try the traditional drink known as pulque (costs not included).

Wear sneakers, wear layers, bring sunblock and an umbrella. Be prepared to walk a ridiculous amount. Our guide was a really nice man and was very informative, however this tour was way too long. We spent a lot of time in the gift shops before we even went to the main attractions. I imagine they do this to support small business but it was a major waste of time. We were a few hours in before we even saw the pyramids and I was already tired before spending two hours walking around the pyramids. You must be in good physical health to do this tour. We met the guide at 8.15am and we’re back home at 7pm!

It was a good tour, timely and very informative. It's ideal if you want to cover some of the most important spots in Mexico City, while getting great information and enjoying your time. The only thing to be aware of is the email, if the place where you are staying is not listed in the pickups they provide make sure to check your email the day before in case you are scheduled to be picked up in a different place. But that's like a major exception. Overall I think it was great, fun and we covered a lot in the 8 hours the tour lasted.

Wir wurden wie geplant, pünktlich, an einem Treffpunkt abgeholt. Die Tour war sehr interessant und dauerte 8,5 Stunden - die Dauer variiert etwas (je nachdem wie schnell alles abgearbeitet wird). Der Tourguide hat Spanisch und Englisch gesprochen. Er hat sehr viel erklärt und immer wieder Tipps für schöne Fotospots gegeben. Ein schönes und interessantes Erlebnis ! Danke ! :)
