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 tour, Pablo and Zitlili were fun, very hospitable and knowledgeable, no minute wasted. The pyramids are amazing, I couldnt climb and reach the top, afraid of hights but my wife did and had too much fun. Got shots of mizcal and tequilla for free, on the house...the nice local restaurant served us good food, tried that local dish with cactus served in somewhat volcanic stone pot, poured with flaming tequilla..wow...very appetizing and tasted so good. Were treated so well and got first class service, for the price we paid, really worth it. Dont forget to tip Pablo and Zitlili, they made our vacation in mexico memorable, see u next year as we definitely comeback :

Well knowledged tour guide. Patiently waited several times for us as we were travelling with a 3 yr old.
She pushed our pram for us a couple of times and eve went out of her way to entertain our son on a playground whilst we were having lunch.
This tour doesnt rush you and allows the perfect amount of time to experience the locations visited.
Highly recommended as its worth paying that little bit extra than the cheaper tours.
We didnt feel as if we were cattle being hearded around.
Thank you very much for the experience allowing us to leave this beautiful country with nothing but happy memories.
Happy family from Australia.

The easiest way to get to see the pyramids at Teotihuacán, as well as the countryside, other Aztec ruins, silversmiths at work and the Shrine of Guadalupe is with a guide, a group and a van - and this tour meets all the criteria. Our tour guide, José, was wonderful - friendly, very informative and explained everything we visited and saw - in seamless bilingual English and Spanish. We had a group lunch outside of the national archaeological park at Teotihuacán, got to sample pulque and tequila in fact, we all did tequila shots three times during the day. You could easily go on your own, but you miss the explanations of the pyramids themselves, the people who lived there, their customs, even demonstrations of how the local plants are used for everything from paper to dye to sewing and fabric, to drinking and eating. The full day tour was excellent, and highly recommended.

On our way to the Shrine of Guadalupe, we stop to view another ancient Aztec ruin, then proceded to the Shrine of Guadalupe. Our tour guide was informative. Overall the Teotihuacan Pyramids were amazing. I did learn a lot of the historical culture on this trip. Worthwhile to include the extra payment for your lunch.
