What You Can Expect

Teotihuacan Pyramids and Shrine of Guadalupe

Teotihuacan Pyramids

Enjoy pickup by air-conditioned coach from your Mexico City hotel, and travel with your guide for an hour outside of the city to Teotihuacan, a UNESCO-listed archaeological site.

Your full-day tour of the pre-Columbian Mesoamerican city takes you around its magnificent pyramids, the Avenue of the Dead, the Temple of Quetzalcoatl, and Temple of the Feathered Serpent, the third largest pyramid at Teotihuacan. Wander down wide avenues, thousands of years old, and learn about the Aztec customs and culture of this ancient site commonly referred to as the City of the Gods.

Climb your way up the Sun Pyramid and the Moon Pyramid. From the summit, admire the vast Avenue of the Dead, the mile-long (2.5 km) road that divided the city and stretched from the Moon Plaza in the north to the Great Compound in the south.

After your Teotihuacan tour, head to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the most visited religious site in Latin America. Learn about the Spanish Baroque work of art built in the 16th century. Legend has it that a ‘lady from heaven’ appeared in 1531 to a local peasant at Tepeyac, a hill just outside of Mexico City. She identified herself as the Mother of the True God, instructed him to have the bishop construct a temple on this location and left an image of herself imprinted miraculously on his tilma, or cloak.

Your tour ends with transport back to your hotel.

What a great introduction to Mexico! Hector was a fantastic guide and made the day one to remember. There were 11 people on our bus and we had enough time to see everything. Things were fairly quiet on a Tuesday so a great day to visit the pyramids. The short shopping stops were fine and provided a chance to use the bathrooms and stretch your legs, we had lunch included which was fine but your could order at the restaurant if needed. To think we almost didn't do this tours because some people through the shopping stops were excessive...don't let that put you off at all. An excellent day out and a great introduction to an amazing country!

Visiting and seeing these sites was a dream come true for me, destinations ticked off my bucket list, both were breath-taking, mesmerizing and interesting. Being a Catholic by religion, visiting the Guadalupe Shrine strengthens my faith and I made sure I bought a memento to remind me of my visit, it was an awesome trip! I would love to travel and visit these sites again in the near future.
