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.

Excellent day! Guide and driver were most pleasant and very informative.I got a real good exposure to the culture and history of the area. Side stops along the way were great added experiences.

Jose was wonderful! Very friendly, funny, and super knowledgable about Mexican history. Although it rained all day during the tour, Jose's personality made it more enjoyable. Also took us to other stops other than the pyramids and the shrine that added some context to all the history.

Great tour, very informational. Great guide and yummy lunch! Lots of walking, but worth it. I don't think enough time was spent at the Shrine of Guadalupe.

What a great experience. I will be going again. Only complaint I had was one of the stops. I bought a bag for 470.00 and found the same bag outside the pyramids for 100.00. Lunch was wonderful. Included in th cost of the tour

This was a great tour. Jose, our tour guide was knowledgeable and pleasant. The tour was a good pace and had several stops before the pyramids. Lunch was included in our tour, the food was delicious. We then headed for the Basilica which was the last stop, I only wished we had gotten more time there. Overall, it was a excellent tour.
