Full description

Take in the three most culturally and historically important sites in the Mexico City area on a full-day tour. First, visit the archeological site of Teotihuacan and marvel at some of the most impressive pyramids in the world. See the Sun and Moon pyramids, the Temple of Quetzalcoatl, and the Dead's Avenue. Next, you’ll head to Mexico’s most important Catholic pilgrimage site, the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe. This shrine was built to commemorate the reported appearance of the Virgin Mary to Juan Diego, an Aztec peasant. The third and final stop of the tour is Tlatelolco, where it is said that the past, present, and future of Mexico meet. The Plaza de las Tres Culturas is named after the three periods of Mexican history represented by structures from the pre-Columbian, Spanish colonial, and the independent mestizo nation.

The tour of the pyramid and the ruins was a great adventure. Our guide and driver, Fernando and Joel, were a great pair. Fernando's deep knowledge of the history of the pyramids and Mexico was very solid and Joel did an equally expressive job shuttling us to and fro. A great experience, I highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Mexico City

I couldn't have asked for a better tour or a better tour guide! Our tour guide was Marco and he was excellent at pointing out historical buildings, archeological sites, and other well known landmarks while we drove through the city. Once we arrived at the pyramids site, Marco proceeded to give us an incredibly informational tour and explanation of the history and construction of the pyramids. I would 100% recommend anyone who is on the fence about booking a tour with this group to just do it! Ask for Marco if possible and you'll have one of the best experiences possible.

After having been to the great pyramids of Egypt they were a lot smaller than I had thought. I am a history buff but did not realize these pyramids were built in 100-250 AD. A lot older than I thought. Teotihuacan was great although I wish there was more signage and information available. Tlatelolco was disappointing due to its lack of information about it. Tenotichlan was basically destroyed by the Spanish so there is nothing left and this is the best of what they have left. I am glad we saw it first before going to the pyramids. The Basilica was good especially when you walk on the floor and can feel what the damage is doing to the building. Overall very glad I went and very glad this group put on the tour.
