Private daytrip from Mexico City: Our Lady of Guadalupe & Tlatelolco
The Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe is the most sacred spot in all of Mexico and is the most visited sanctuary in Latin America. It houses the miracle image of the Madonna of the People, the Protectress of Mexico. This site attracts pilgrims and tourists alike, and is considered one of the most miraculous locations dedicated to the Dark Madonna. According to the legend, the Blessed Virgin herself gave to an Indian, named Juan Diego, a cloak imprinted with her image.

Exciting visit to the Basilica de Guadalupe with our guide Monica. On our way to the tour Monica gave us interesting information about the landmarks on the way. Monica made sure we saw the most important areas of the tour and gave us details along the way. We did not ever feel rushed. We toured at a comfortable pace and saw everything we wanted to see. The pickup & dropoff at our hotel was very pleasing for us. We definitely recommend this tour.
