7. Mexico City: Teotihuacan, Shrine of Guadalupe & Tlatelolco
Embark on a full-day guided tour to some of Mexico City's most famous landmarks. Discover more about Mexican culture and history with your guide as you visit Tlatelolco, the Pyramids of Teotihuacan, and the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
After being picked up from your hotel or accommodation, 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 accommodation to finish the day.
