Full description
Get a comprehensive introduction to Mexico City on a full-day tour of “The City of the Gods,” and discover a wealth of history and cultural diversity at countless monuments and streets. Following a pick-up from your hotel, visit sites such as the National Palace, where the beautiful murals by Diego Rivera attract the crowds. Go to Constitution Square (also known as the "Zocalo"), and admire the Metropolitan Cathedral.

Head off the main avenues to Chapultepec Park, one of the most important residential areas of the city. Explore the Zona Rosa ("Pink Zone"), before going to the World Trade Center, Siqueiros Cultural Polyforum, and monumental Bull Ring. Admire more Diego artwork at the Insurgentes Theater, before going to the famous library at University City, entirely covered in mosaic murals by the artist Juan O´Gorman.

See the Olympic Stadium, and explore the residential area of Pedregal de San Angel, built on a lava field. Then, make your way to the peaceful waters of the Xochimilco Canals, one of the last traces of the ancient Aztec era. Here, you will take a relaxing trip on a traditional pre-Hispanic boat.

Continue to colonial Coyoacan for a walk down Francisco Sosa street to see the old rambling houses from the 16th century. Go to the main square to admire the mansion of the Conquistador Hernando Cortes, and the beautiful paintings and altarpiece of the Church of St. John the Baptist.
