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.

My sister and I had a wonderful day on this amazing tour. Francisco was such a knowledgeable and friendly guide, and Eduardo was an excellent driver getting us place to place. We loved the opportunity to see three incredible, culturally significant sites in one day, and Francisco gave great historical context for each. Highly recommend!

The guide was amazing. He was bilingual with great English. Gave us an overabundance of information. My son is disabled and they were very helpful helping him in and out of the van and using the wheelchair. Most of the tour was wheelchair or crutches friendly since the Pyramids are closed for climbing anyway. If you're looking for a lot of history this is it Please note they pick up from your hotel or house so the pickup time is an estimate. They were 30 min late picking us up

The trip was excellent, well-coordinated, and enjoyable. Our guide for this trip, Marcos was very knowledgeable and his renditions were really interesting. Our van driver, Juan was great and the duo took our group to an excellent Mexican restaurant close to the Teotihuacan pyramids where we enjoyed really great authentic food.
