Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
You'll get a chance to experience Mexico City in a fun and unique way on this tour! Head to Teotihuacan by public transit before enjoying dinner with a local family who specialize in authentic Mexican favorites.
What You Can Expect
Step inside a local home to meet a family who produces one of the region's best pulque, the alcoholic beverage sacred to the Aztecs. The process, history and significance of this ancient drink becomes clear as you listen to your guide's expert commentary.
Leave the pulqueria to embark on an afternoon visit to the amazing pyramids of Teotihuacan. The UNESCO World Heritage site includes a museum where you can learn about the artifacts found in the area and see a reconstruction of ancient Teotihuacan's local houses.
Follow your guide to the impressive Moon Pyramid to learn the history and meaning behind this prime example of ancient Latin American architecture. Take a walk through the Calzada de los Muertos (Pass of the Dead) to reach the Pyramid of the Sun, the area's tallest and most spectacular monument, rising 206 feet (63 meters). As most of the crowds will have left for the day, you can enjoy the tranquility of this amazing site as you climb the pyramid at sunset. Once you reach the top, you'll understand why the Aztecs called this 'the place where men become gods.'
After spending some time relaxing at the pyramids, return to the village to visit a local family and enjoy cultural traditions, conversation and food as you share dinner in a local Mexican home.
In the evening, experience how locals travel around when you jump on public transportation with your guide back to Mexico City! Observe everyday life in Mexico City at the often busy and crowded stations.
Although the meeting point was a tad difficult to find, the trip from start to finish was a fun and relaxed adventure. Our tour guide Luis was hilarious, knowledgeable and completely down to earth; a really genuine tour guide! The scenery was amazing, the food was fantastic, the tequila and mescal was pretty darn good as well! Learning about all the uses of an Agave cactus and the fruit was a huge highlight and the amazing little places and villages that we visited were such a treat. The whole package was a huge delight and I would definitely recommend this tour!
was extremely happy with this.
