Description

Escape the hustle of Mexico City with a guided tour of two of the most popular nearby attractions. First, explore the Basilica of our Lady of Guadalupe with a bilingual guide to understand why this sanctuary is one of the most important in the world, drawing millions of pilgrims each year. Continue to the Pyramids of Teotihuacan, an iconic Aztec archaeological site, where you can climb to the top of the Pyramid of the Sun and the Pyramid of the Moon. A tequila and pulque tasting is also included.

After pickup in an air-conditioned van at your Mexico City hotel, visit the Basilica de Guadalupe, a catholic religious center which was built to replace a Spanish construction of the 17th century. The old church still exists, but every day it sinks further into the swampy ground. The devotion to the “Dark Virgin of Guadalupe”, is so widespread that many Mexicans refer to themselves as “Guadalupanos”. Pilgrims arrive to this important basilica daily, some traveling on their knees in devotion.

After visiting the basilica, continue to the Pyramids of Teotihuacan. This ancient Aztec archaeological site was the most populated in the central valley around Mexico City. The Quetzalcoatl Temple, as well as the impressive Pyramids of the Sun and Pyramid of the Moon, are highlights. At the top of the pyramids enjoy a superb view over then entire central valley. The chance to try  pulque and tequila round out your day before you are returned to your hotel.
