Highlights of Mexico City

Mexico City, commonly known as D.F. (Distrito Federal) is the largest city in the world by population. Blending Hispanic and indigenous culture, the entire city is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here are some of the cultural treasures to seek out.

Teotihuacan Pyramids

Teotihuacan Pyramids

This staggering City of the Gods, constructed by the Toltecs, was built over the course of 300 years starting in 100 BC. Prepare to feel small as you tour its monumental pyramids.

Frida Kahlo Museum

Mexico's iconically-eyebrowed artist has her own museum in D.F., in the house where she was born and where she died. Its cobalt blue walls and tranquil courtyards are truly lovely.

Lucha Libre

Lucha Libre

Forget WWE - if you've ever wanted to see a wrestling match, this is it. Lucha Libre is a form of wrestling peculiar to Hispanic countries, distinguished by its colorful masks.

Puebla

Puebla is one of the oldest inhabited places in the whole country. The Tonanzintla Church and Cholula Pyramid, framed by the Sierra Norte mountains, is unforgettable.

Planning Your Mexico City Visit

How long should I stay in Mexico City?

10-14 days is enough to get the most out of this truly amazing city.

How walkable is Mexico City?

It's huge, so you will be relying on public transport a lot. In certain non-tourist areas, it's advised to avoid walking around at night.

When should I go to Mexico City?

Mexico City thrives in the summer, but it is probably best to visit from November onwards if you are averse to extreme heat.

Anything else I should know?

In Mexico, tipping is common in places you may not have expected - for example, at gas stations and supermarkets. If in doubt, check out what locals are doing.

What people are saying about Mexico City

This walking tour is a unique opportunity to get to know neighbourhoods, to which we probably wouldn't go otherwise, although they have a lot to offer too (especially beautiful street art and interesting architecture). Our guide Nicolas has a big knowledge about Mexico City, but not only. We talked about so many interesting topics, like art, politics, travels, etc. No time to get bored during this 4h30 tour. We also had the opportunity to try typical food and drinks of the region at local places. If you want to see another, beautiful side of CDMX with a super friendly guide, don't hesitate to book this tour.

I had limited time in Mexico so this was a great way to make the most out of my day. The guide was fantastic, and energetic. The people in my group were lovely. this tour provided me with a bit of everything, good information, opportunities to ask questions, get an insight to local customs, and have time to wander on my own and take photos. I would recommend this tour to any friends or family.

Teotihuacan, Shrine of Guadalupe and Tlatelolco Reviewed by Estela, 06/15/2020

I had limited time in Mexico so these day-tours were really the best ways to make the most out of my time. I'm pretty surprised with how much we were able to fit into one day. It was a great highlight of these areas with good information and still time to walk around on our own and explore. Its really so convenient also to have the transportation to all of these places taken care of.

It was amazing. We got an e-mail prior to our trip about the covid restrictions. Our tour guides also informed us right from the start about the covid restrictions. Among that particular item the trip was amazing. They made it work for us. It was amazing! So grateful. Thank you so much!!!!! -USA here-

Puebla is a very beautiful town built on mountain flank with old/narrow streets offering some breathtaking views on city/valley. Lots of interesting boutiques/artisana, restaurants . Cholula has the most superb church built on top of ancient pyramid with a superb view on volcanoes near by.
