Hit the ground running when you arrive in Mexico City on this exciting journey through the heart of Centro Historico (the historic district).
Your private guide will explain the fascinating history and escort you safely through the streets, alleys, and plazas of this wonderfully vibrant area. We’ll see some of the most beautiful examples of architecture including the Metropolitan Cathedral, National Palace, House of Tiles, Postal Palace, and of course, Bellas Artes.
We’ll start at the Zocalo, or main plaza, where we’ll visit Templo Mayor, once a pillar of the Aztec Empire. If we’re lucky we should be able to watch a traditional conchero dance being performed.
After exploring some more buildings around the square, we’ll begin to wind our way through the alleys, stepping inside to see some of the most wonderful entryways and stained glass ceilings you’re likely to see anywhere.
Get ready to try some traditional Mexican treats as we stop by a 150-year-old sweet shop. The sugar rush will have us invigorated for the rest of the tour!
As we continue our exploration, we’ll stop in for a quick coffee to view the spectacular Bellas Artes building before a very short car ride to our final destination. Here you’ll have the chance to sample a shot of Mexico’s favorite alcoholic beverage while the festive tunes of Mariachi play a tune especially for you!
This tour is an excellent introduction to Mexico City and will leave you yearning for more. Your guide is there to help with recommendations on where to eat and assist with any questions you might have.
