The ancient city and the patroness of Mexico

Located a mere 50 km from downtown Mexico City, Teotihuacan is an ancient city that reached it's heyday at the classic period of the Meso American cultures between the VI to VIII century of our era, when they became the masters of their known world.

Climb the Pyramids of the Sun and the Moon, visit the temples and palaces and of course we'll walk the famous Causeway of the Dead.

Afterwards we may visit the museum on site where you can admire the original paintings from the murals, several sculptures and objects recovered from the palaces and temples.

The shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe is the most visited catholic temple in the world after the Vatican, the Basilica is an icon to the city and a must if you want to learn about the lore of the actual Mexican society.

A Recent Review of this tour

We could not have asked for a better experience on our half day tour of Teotihuacan and the Basillica de Guadalupe. Alberto was everything one would want in a top-end guide: friendly, knowledgeable, responsive, and conversant on a wide range of subjects. And he took us for a terrific lunch at a local restaurant we never would have found on our own. Incredible posole and roasted goat!
