Full description

Enjoy a full-day private or small-group tour through Mexico City's historic neighborhoods, ancient sites, and pilgrimage spots. Visit the ruins of Tlatelolco, the legendary Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, and the Pyramids of Teotihuacán on this history-packed trip.

Start in the Tlatelolco neighborhood of Mexico City – a mix of ancient ruins, colonial structures, and modern architecture. Its main square, La Plaza de la Tres Culturas, is symbolic of Mexico's unique cultural heritage.

Visit the ruins of Tlatelolco and learn about its layered history that dates back to the 14th century. See the archeological area filled with the remains of old cities that span the pre-Columbian to the Spanish Colonial eras.

Continue to the north of the city to visit the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Mexico's largest religious sanctuary houses a shrine with the venerated image of the Virgin of Guadalupe. A pilgrimage site since the 16th century, join people from all over the world who come here to visit the icon.

See the old basilica, completed in 1709, and visit the new church – which was built between 1974 and 1976 after the old church began to sink into the ground. Tour the impressive atrium and interior of the new basilica, which now houses the Shrine.

After lunch (not included in the tour price), you'll head to the great Teotihuacán Pyramids. This giant architectural site northeast of the city dates back over 2,000 years and is one of Mexico's most important historical sites.

Be guided around the Temples of Quetzalpapalotl and the Temple of the Feathered Shells. Admire the impressive Pyramid of the Moon and the Pyramid of the Sun, located on the long Avenue of the Dead.

See the colorful murals and Mesoamerican artifacts in the Archaeological Museum as you conclude your day learning more about this ancient civilization.

Jaime our tour guide was amazing. I can't recommend him highly enough. He is a natural teacher. He kept the tour together in two languages, answering questions in both. He told historical facts in great detail and had both groups spellbound- waiting for more. He gave us plenty of time to be on our own and still kept us on schedule.All the people on the tour were from around the world and were so kind and friendly. I had never been on a tour before and I would gladly do another after this very positive experience.

Everything was very well organized, personally I took the bus at Bellas Artes, from that moment everything was excellent, thanks to our guide Mario who informed us of history and the sites the best of truth. I am delighted to do the tour again. Thanks Mario our guide and Amaya our pilot

It's a relatively large group - a 40-50 seater bus. When we attended, we were lucky and only 25 people. The group is mixed with Spanish and English-speaking people. Our tour guide, Kevin, made an excellent mix to fluently switch between both. That said, it's mentally more exhaustive to listen to the whole content twice (especially for me who understands both languages). Otherwise, it was a very well-executed tour, especially given the group size. From the tour content, the two stops in Mexico City are worth it, the pace is nice, with enough time to explore the areas yourself - the pyramids and also the places in Mexico City. The chosen food place is a bit low quality. Very touristy. I guess that's what you get there near Teotihuacan. That said, I'm sure there are some hidden places which would be nice to have seen chosen...
