My Review

This tour was amazing! There were seven other travelers, 2 from Australia, 3 from Mexico (Cabo San Lucas) and 2 from New York City. The tour operators, Mildred and Martin were very friendly and very knowledgeable. I was picked up at the JW Marriott in Polanco right on time. On our way to pick up the other tourists, we stopped to take pictures of various things, such as the Angel of Independence Shrine. Our first "real" stop at Tlatelolco and the St. James Church included an unexpected addition to our tour, an EARTHQUAKE! Fortunately for us, the 7.2 quake was centered 170 miles southwest of us. People streamed out of buildings and things were swaying, which made it a touch scary for a moment but things went back to normal as people realized there was no immediate damage and we continued on our way. We stopped for a 15 minute discussion from Mildred and then we continued on to Teotihuacan. It took about an hour to get to the pyramid complex. First, we stopped at a market. I liked the stop, which included tequila tasting although the vendors are very pushy. After about 45 minutes or so at this marketplace, we finally got to the the Teotihuacan site. It of course was amazing. There were long lines but it was worth it. Again, Mildred filled us in on all sorts of information about the site. We stayed for a few hours, then we left for the included lunch, which was at a restaurant right outside the compound. The lunch was excellent. It was buffet-style and the food was outstanding. You are responsible for drinks, however but they are reasonably priced. Finally, after a thunderstorm, Martin navigated some back streets and got us to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe. The complex once again was amazing. It rained again but it was refreshing. It was nice to visit on Good Friday! I cannot recommend this tour enough. Martin and Mildred are as friendly as anyone I have ever met and the price is right; you should GO!
