On the first day of the tour, follow your guide to the ancient archaeological site of Tlatelolco, in the center of downtown Mexico City. Continue to the Basilica de Guadalupe and learn about its importance in Mexican culture.
Then, drive to Teotihuacan, the ancient city of pyramids. Exploring with a guide is essential, as the ruins and pyramids are unmarked and their purposes hard to determine without context. Take in panoramic views of the ancient city from the top of the Sun and Moon pyramids, before returning to the city.
Day Two begins with a trip to pre-Colonial Coyoacan. The guide points out landmarks as you walk along cobblestone streets to Casa Azul, former residence of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Continue on to Xochimilco, an ecological reserve renowned for its colorful boats and music. The guide ensures you avoid the hassle of navigating to the site on your own.
