Mexico City Tour of Local Markets and Teotihuacán

Mexico City is the vibrant and populous capital of Mexico, famous for its rich food traditions and colorful handicrafts. Get an insider’s market tour of the city’s hidden shopping stalls on this unique combo tour, which also includes a guided, small-group visit to the pre-Colombian ruins of Teotihuacán and a home-cooked meal with a local family.

What to Expect

Meet your group at Museo Mexicano del Diseño in the heart of Mexico City. You’ll follow your guide to an under-the-radar crafts market still hidden from most tourists, where you’ll get a peek at Mexico’s colorful artisanal wares. The tour will be capped at only 12 people, so you’ll be guaranteed an intimate visit.

Continue your insider’s market tour with stops at the largest flower stalls in the city and a one-of-a-kind "witch market" while sampling fresh local treats like tamales, tostadas, tacos, and kettle-cooked corn on the cob.

From there, you’ll travel like a local on a public bus to Teotihuacán, once the most important city in Mesoamerica and a UNESCO-World Heritage site. Your guide will be on-hand to explain the mysteries of the ancient, abandoned temple complexes, but you’ll also enjoy plenty of time to explore at your own pace. End the day with a rare opportunity to meet with local families, where you’ll hear about local family-run businesses and sit down to a sensational home-cooked meal.
