Discover the history of this marvelous country while you are exploring beautiful churches and civic buildings constructed between the 16th and 19th centuries.

During that period, Mexico was a colony of Spain, and you will notice the Spanish influence in these constructions.

Mexico is a country that has a mixture of Spanish and indigenous cultures, and you will be listening to the history of the city and the country from the pre-Hispanic times to the present, in one of the most beautiful, clean and safe cities in Mexico.

Join us, and let us take you on a journey through time.

Itinerary

We will start at the Acueduct's gazebo, and then from there walk into downtown watching:
Convent of La Cruz (17th century)
Plaza de Armas (main square)
Casa de la Corregidora and royal houses(18th Century buildings)
Jardín Zenea (civic square) and San Francisco Church
Teatro de la República (19th century theater)
Santa Clara's Church (Baroque altarpieces 18th Century)
Santa Rosa de Viterbo Church (Baroque altarpices and paintings 18th Century).

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Meeting point: Mirador del Acueducto (Acueduct's gazebo).
Address: Ejercito Republicano Avenue, in front of Panteón de los Queretanos Ilustres (Mausoleum).
I wear white shirt with the logos of Federal and Local Tourism Departments and blue jeans. I also wear my Tourist Guide License with my name on it.

End location: The tour ends at Santa Rosa de Viterbo Church. You can take a taxi back to your hotel or I could leave you in a restaurant to eat (Downtown area).

Duration: 3 hours

We have a very nice weather in this city. 90% of the year it is sunny. Only between the months of June and September it rains, but not everyday and usually it rains no more than one hour.
If the tour starts in the afternoon, some places could be closed (such as churches).

Transportation

This is a walking tour, so we don't need transportation to do it.

What’s Included

Other: It includes the guided tour. You don't need to pay anything extra during the tour.

What’s Extra

Other: Transportation from your hotel to Mirador del Acueducto (Meeting point).
I recommend to use a taxi, it is safe and comfortable. They should charge around 60 pesos (5 USD) if your hotel is near downtown.
If you want to get some water to drink, a botlle with 1 liter (1/4 gallon) costs around 10 pesos (less than one dollar).

Restrictions

My tour guide credential allows me to guide all over the country.

A Recent Review of this tour

Aaron was a great guide. I know QRO well but had a visiting friend who had never been here before and wanted her to have an overview of the city. It was perfect and I even learned and saw a some things I had not known about before. The pace of the tour was well done with places along the way where we could sit and learn more about the history of Queretaro and Mexico. I would highly recommend the tour to anyone. Thanks Aaron for a great day!
