A look into ancient Mexico


This place is one of the most amazing sites in the world. The pyramid of the sun, and the pyramid of the moon right there for you to climb and feel the connection. We will also visit the temple of Quetzalcoatl, A. K. A "The feathered snake", among other temples.
This is the chance to travel into the past and really get to know this culture, who once ruled these lands and vanished without a trace as well.
We can go and do Tequila, Mezcal, and Pulque tasting while learning about the many uses of the Maguey plant, as well as obsidian at a local family's craftwork. After, we can take a break and have lunch at one of the local restaurants, with a great environment and live mariachi music before heading back to the city.
NOTE: You have the option of choosing to visit the local museum at Teotihuacan or go to the Guadalupe Shrine or another spot, like a local market, after Teotihuacan.
Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.

A Recent Review of this tour

Enrique was a pleasure to spend time with! He was friendly, and very accommodating and flexible—changing parts of the tour based on what the group wanted to do. We visited Teotihuacan and Xochimilco, both of which he made very easy and fun! I would definitely recommend a tour with Enrique.
