Itinerary
After hotel pick-up, relax on a scenic, hour-long drive to Teotihuacan, Mexico’s “City of Gods.” Built between the first and seventh centuries, and covering an area of eight square miles (21 square kilometers), the UNESCO-listed park was once a thriving city. Hear about its mysterious origins from your archaeologist guide, who will tell you stories about its ancient residents and theories about the city’s decline.

During this informative tour, you’ll see less-visited temple complexes as well as world-famous attractions including the Pyramid of the Mood and Pyramid of the Sun, which you can climb for incredible views. Explore the intricate murals and stone-cut designs at Temple of Quetzalcoatl, where you’ll get a first-hand peek at the latest archaeological findings.

Afterward, you’ll stop at an obsidian workshop, where you’ll sample cactus-brewed liquors and hear how traditional craftsmanship is being kept alive by local families.

Worth the money.

The bus and the guided tour of the site was well worth the money. The optional "lunch" was little more than an excruciatingly looooong visit to a tourist trap souvenir shop. This part of the trip needs to be dramatically shortened or omitted entirely. On...More
