Full description
Your 8-hour tour begins in the morning with a visit to the Plaza de las Tres Culturas and the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe – who has been called The Empress of America. At the Plaza de las Tres Culturas you’ll see the 16th-century Santiago de Tlatelolco Church and the remnants of early Aztec temples. The tradition of La Villa de Guadalupe involved a miracle and an American Indian saint. With the vision of the Virgin Mary in 1531 there began a saga that helped convert millions of Indians to Catholicism, and the image became a symbol for Mexican Christians around the world. Today La Villa de Guadalupe is a popular site visited by people of all religions and nationalities. Next on the itinerary is a visit to the famous archeological site of Teotihuacan, approximately 50 kilometers north-east of Mexico City. You’ll see the monumental Pyramids of the Sun and Moon, the Temple of Quetzalpapalotl, and the Avenue of the Dead. This was one of the few cities in the world that was considered worthy of habitation by the gods of the culture. The archeological vestiges of Teotihuacan, such as remnants of the fine pottery produced here, have ended up in museums around the world.

Too little time was spent at the main attraction, about 2 hours, at the Teotihuacan Pyramids. The Maguey section of the tour, showing how the Maguey (agave) plant was used, was very interesting but was linked to a compulsory shopping stop. This section showed obsidian carving and polishing, harvesting the center of the agave plant for making mescal and tequilla (a version of mescal), and the traditional use of the leaves for paper, needles, and fiber.

The tour is ok. Get patient cuz you are going with a lot of people and not everybody is on time to leave. The organization at the beginning was little bad but then it was better. The tour guide is very nice, although he speaks too much sometime he is really helpful and patient.

It was a great way to see the sites without the hassle of transportation in such a busy city. The guide was very knowledgeable and presented very well in English as well as Espanol. I am less of a religious person so I skipped the Basilica of Guadalupe at the end and walked back to my hotel. The only thing I did not appreciate was the fact that when booking, after entering the address of my hotel, the system did not indicate that I was not in the area to be picked up. As a tourist, how am I supposed to know if I am, or not, in certain parts of the city? So I ended up having to walk 6 km in the morning to get to the meeting point, only to wait around for 45 minutes once I got there before we left. Therefore, walking back from the Basilica was only 2km instead of 6... Also, everyone should know to bring a lot of water, a hat, and food! Lunch is only after 2pm, once the pyramids have been explored. So people in the group were hungry and grouchy! The hat is to avoid heat exhaustion!
