Rise early for your hotel pickup in Mexico City, and travel with your personalized guide to the city’s heart and center, the Zocalo. See the square’s main landmarks, including the cathedral, the presidential palace, and the Diego Rivera murals lining a corridor. Learn about how the area developed during the Spanish colonization period.
Next, head outside of the city to one of the largest archaeological complexes in Mexico, Teotihuacan, which translates as the ‘City Where Men Became Gods.’ Stroll along ‘the path of the dead’ and climb one of the world’s tallest pyramids. From the top, admire mountain and city views, as you hear about the Aztecs of Teotihuacan, the tale of the tribe that disappeared, bloody wars, and sacrifices.
Return to Mexico City and stop at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, visited annually by millions of Catholic pilgrims from many countries. Learn about the events that led to the miraculous imprinting of her image on a man’s cloak, and consequently, the shrine being built here in her honor.
Your private tour ends with drop-off back at your hotel.
