From Mexico City: Tula And Tepotzotlán Private Day Tour

1. From Mexico City: Tula And Tepotzotlán Private Day Tour

Your tour begins with hotel pick-up in Mexico City in the morning. Board your private vehicle and head to visit the archaeological site of Tula. Here, you can see the Atlantes, which are something like 5-meter statues of warriors and related to Atlantis. This is a Ceremonial Center from the 8th century. Before the Mexicas, people from Tula were considered the best architects of ancient times. Unfortunately they disappeared because of invasions of cultures from the north of the country. Learn from your knowledgeable guide how Tulenses were the ones innovating in different techniques of construction. Admire their use of sidewalks and decoration with stucco as you visit the site. Your tour then continues with a visit to the convent of the Jesuits order: Tepotzotlán. This is the best example of the conquest of Mexico. See the chapel of San Francisco Javier which is a very impressive construction as it is part of the samples of Mexican Barroque Style. The entire church is covered with gold leaves and you'll even visit the room of the nuns which includes samples of their clothing. After taking in some great history of Mexico, you'll drive back to Mexico City and be dropped-off back at your hotel.

A great and informative experience

Hotel pickup was on time, courteous, friendly / cordial guide. The information on site about the cultural site was very good and questions could always be answered. You can tell how the tour guide loves his work and brings you closer to the culture of the country.

Since Tula is unfortunately closed due to COVID-19, my guide Carlos offered me a tour to Xochimilco, Coyoacan, Anahuacalli and Frida Kahlo. It was a very nice experience.
