Day trip that can be combined with a total of 3 days in Mexico City.
Tula used to be the capital of the toltecs, where the historic Quetzalcoatl ruled, eventually was outcasted and moved to Chichen Itza. Tenayuca is another archaeological site north of Mexico City, with a pyramid similiar to the one in Templo Mayor. The Museo del Virreinato is special not only due to the collection of colonial art, there you can find the church of San Francisco Javier as part of the museum even if you have visted other barroque style churches this one is a very special one and is also located in the "Magic Town" of Tepoztlan the closest magic town to Mexico City.
Museo del virreinato (and it's church).
Time to lunch in Tepotzotlan.

Carlos is extremely passionate about the "lost history" of Mexico on the non-mainstream area. This tour is definitely worth it - Carlos' passion for the topic on post-Hispanic history as well as first civilisations is addictive and his knowledge is top notch, smoothly finished off with a sharp sense of humour! We really enjoyed it!
