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.

Covered a lot of ground in one day and was a great day trip from Mexico City!

We were picked up at our hotel and our guide was fabulous. He was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and energetic. I don't normally like a shopping tour but we stopped at a few places where we could see how things were made. There was no high pressure sales and the stops were interesting with quality goods which you could purchase if you chose to. At a Mescal distillery we were able to sample different ages of mescal and tequila There was a couple of hours in Teotihuacan with free time to climb the pyramids walk around the site. At the Shrine of Guadalupe we saw the old and the new Basilica. We chose the lunch included option and I really enjoyed it. If you only had one day in Mexico City, this is a tour I would recommend.

the tour was WELL worth the price. our guide was very good. we were picked up at our hotel on time and allowed enough time at each of the stops to see all we wanted to see. only one encountered issue, when we got to Teotihuacan the tour guide held all our entry tickets upon entering the site which did not allow us to enter the onsite museum without them. the museum was worth seeing we went back the next day to see it SO make sure you get your stubs once you get there.
Paying the additional fee for the lunch was a good decision. very good food and drinks.

Fantastic tour, be prepared for lots of walking but the rewards are in the sites. Entire family enjoyed it. Due to the elevation would recommend you wait a day or so after arriving in Mexico city if possible to get acclimated.
