Leave Mexico City behind on a small-group tour to the ancient Teotihuacán pyramids. After meeting your guide at a central location, head by metro to the town of San Martin de las Piramides, located about 30 miles (48 km) outside of Mexico City.
Upon arrival, begin your journey into Teotihuacán, a UNESCO World Heritage site, at the on-site museum, where your guide points out reconstructions of local houses, as well as relics discovered in the archaeological zone.
Enter the ancient city and stroll through the Calzada de los Muertos (Pass of the Dead) to reach the Sun Pyramid, the area's tallest, towering at 206 feet (63 meters). Huff your way to the top for impressive bird’s-eye views of the Calzada de los Muertos. Gain insight into the Moon Pyramid’s history and architecture, and hear why the Aztecs dubbed Teotihuacán the City of the Gods.
After touring Teotihuacán, visit a pulqueria and a cactus factory in San Martin de las Piramides. Meet a local family producer of pulque, the alcoholic beverage sacred to the Aztecs, and sample candies and creams made from varieties of cacti.
There’s nothing like a home-cooked meal to end a day. Share dinner with another family at their house, and enjoy getting to know each other and more about everyday life in Mexico.
After your satisfying meal, hop on public transportation with your guide and return to your departure point.
