What To Expect

After morning hotel pickup by private vehicle, travel with your guide to Mexico City’s Tlatelolco, formerly part of the capital of the Aztec empire. Learn the history behind the pre-Columbian and modern buildings that stand side-by-side.

Continue to the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe (Basilica de Guadalupe), one of the most visited places in the Catholic world. Hear about the miracles attributed to the Virgin of Guadalupe, and the importance it holds in Mexican culture.

A short drive later, arrive at Teotihuacan, aka the ‘City of the Gods.’ Walk about the main landmarks, including the Avenue of the Dead, the palace of Quetzalpapalotl, as well as the Sun, Moon, and Quetzalcoatl pyramids. Make your way to the top of the Sun Pyramid for panoramic views.

After Teotihuacan, your in-the-know guide takes you to a local restaurant for a delicious lunch. Your tour ends with drop-off back at your hotel.

Zona Arqueologica Tlatelolco

Currently, the ruins of the Plaza de las Tres Culturas correspond to the ceremonial precinct of Tlatelolco, which bears similarities to Tenochtitlan, both in logic and in the objective: to form a city where the market and trade were the main activity.

30 minutesAdmission Ticket Included

I would skip the artisan area as it is too long unless you have unlimited time.

This was a long day but...
Lisa_K, Dec 2021
This was a long day but worth it. Teotihuacan was amazing and even more so in person. It’s a bit of walking so make sure to bring water and sunscreen too. The shrine was interesting to see as well. Giovanni was a great guide and very knowledgeable..highly recommend.
A wonder tour
Peichi_W, Dec 2021
Amazing trip with great tour guy (Ramón) who was full of knowledge. Nice driver, clean car and cold water bottles await. A perfect day trip on the day before Christmas. Thank you!
Amazing Tour
Shadika_P, Dec 2021
Ramon was extremely knowledgeable and spoke English perfectly. Our driver was also great at finding alternative routes as we ran into some highway closures. We just made it in time to visit the Basilica and the day ended up running very long for our guide and driver, but they were committed to making sure we didn't miss out on any of the sites. I would highly recommend this tour!
Arturo was a great guide!...
Michael_B, Dec 2021
Arturo was a great guide! He knew so much about the sites we toured and knew answers to all of my questions. The thing about the tour besides providing information about the sites we toured was his wealth of knowledge about Mexico City itself. Arturo’s command of the English language was great and understood everything he said. I had a really great time with Arturo (+ Arturo, the driver). I highly recommend Arturo!!
Great day in Mexico

Fantastic private tour, perfect!
Ricardo_B, Aug 2021
A splendid day indeed! Carlos and Cristian were the best, we could not have asked for a more knowledgeable and friendly guide and driver. Carlos offered extensive information as we visited each site, he answered all our questions. They are both super pleasant. The pacing of the tour was perfect, they never made us feel rushed, perfect amount of time at each place. We would definitely do another tour with Carlos and Cristian, they make a great team. We enjoyed visiting each site and lunch was delicious and delightful. A private tour is the way to go, especially during these difficult times of COVID, masks were worn at all times. Cristian was always there ready to pick us up, never had to wait and his driving was smooth and paced. Thank you so much to both of them for a FANTASTIC tour of Tlatelolco, Teotihuacan, the Basilica and lunch. Highly recommend this team and this private tour.
Private tour was perfect. Informative and interesting.
Marcarthur_A, Jul 2021
This was an amazing experience. My guide was great and really informative. We discussed a range of topics covering the city’s current status as well as its history. We even felt like he tailored the tour based on our questions and interests. The price for the private tour is totally worth it. Definitely recommend, 10/10
