What To Expect

Plaza de las Tres Culturas
After picking up our travelers at the zócalo, we will make a stop at the square of the three cultures. A magnificent place that architecturally summarizes the identity of Mexico City. We will walk through the ancient ruins of what was, from the 16th century, the most important commercial zone in Mesoamerica until the war for the conquest between the Aztecs and the alliance of Tlaxcaltecas with the Spanish. We will visit the Church of Santiago where the first indigenous person was baptized after the appearance of the Virgin of Guadalupe, San Diego. Likewise, we will know the multifamily buildings work of the architect Mario Pani. They represent the first stage of modernization of Mexico City in the 50s involved in important socio-political movements such as the 68 movement for the arrival of the Olympic games in Mexico City.

40 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe
Afterwards, we will visit the most important Catholic temple in the world after the Vatican, the Basilica of Guadalupe. It is also known as the "atrium of America" from the words of Pope John Paul the second. We will climb the Tepeyac hill where the Virgin of Guadalupe originally appeared. We will enter the old basilica of Guadalupe that represents the rise of the Mexican baroque in New Spain built in the 18th century. Finally, we will visit the majestic work of the architect Pedro Ramírez Vázquez where today the original poncho mantle is located, the new basilica of Guadalupe. You will have enough time to pray, buy religious items, and take them to the blessings module.

Alan was a good guide! Learned a lot about each place. The extra stop for a pulque and obsidian tour was also really good :)
Hands down the best tour experience I've ever had

Miguel (AKA Mike) was awesome; I was part of a group of 6 women who had a long overlay and decided to take advantage by booking this tour. Miguel’s tour was the most reasonably priced and with the best reviews. I completely understand and agree with the 5-star rating.
We needed the tour to be modified to accommodate our specific situation.
1. Airport pickup – we had no transportation & it was our 1st time in CDM.
2. Earlier pickup – we arrived at 5 am.
3. Guaranteed drop-off time - to ensure we didn’t miss our connecting flight.
4. Capacity – For safety we wanted the group to stay together in the same vehicle the entire time.
5. Patience – they would be dealing with a group of 6 women. Lol

For an additional but fair fee, we were able to book him exclusively for our group which would then allow changes to be made to the tour itinerary. We agreed and met him promptly at the selected airport Starbucks. He was kind enough to start the tour at 7 am an hour earlier since our flight arrived at 5 am. His vehicle was clean comfortable and had a working AC system (the mornings are pleasant, but the afternoons are extremely hot). He suggested we start with the pyramids to avoid large crowds and peak heat, so glad we did. We had the site almost all to ourselves. Miguel had so much information and knowledge of the Teotihuacan. He was able to keep all of us interested and engaged. He was very attentive and took initiative in making us comfortable. Teotihuacan is a long stretch to walk with steps and exposure to the elements. He divided the tour into 3 sections beginning at the top (the Moon pyramid), he would introduce us to each section, give us the related information, and then the opportunity to explore and take photos while he went back to the SUV and moved it down to the next section to ensure we didn’t have to walk all the way back to the beginning and/or to give us an option to end the tour at any time. Our group was divided, half wanted to take it easy and not overheat and the other wanted to take advantage of every access opportunity to the pyramids which involved log stretches of steep stairs. He was attentive to everyone’s preferences and requests and didn’t mind the multiple changes.
We felt so comfortable in his company, that some of us took a nap while he drove us to the next site. For the ones who were awake during the drive, he gave some history of the city and the recent changes it has undergone.
The second part of our tour was the Basilica of Guadalupe. Again, Miguel was so knowledgeable, informative, and attentive. Before leaving the parking area he suggested a head cover to protect us from the heat (so very thankful for that) and had a few loaner hats available for those of us who didn’t have any. He handed us bottled water which he highly recommended since it would be hot (again so thankful for that). He suggested if we intended to purchase any religious souvenirs, we could do it that first so they could be blessed when we got to the church, we took advantage of that; items were purchased and blessed.
If you are looking for a tour guide with the following traits, Miguel is the one to book. I highly recommend Miguel; this was by far one of the best tours I have ever taken.
• Attentive and detail-oriented
• Flexible
• Approachable/pleasant
• Knowledgeable
• Cost-effective
• Bilingual (English & Spanish)
Excelente Tour!

First time visiting Mexico, and on my own. Didn’t know what to expect. What can I say… Our tour guide Alan and our driver Jorge were amazing. Alan was knowledgeable and kept us engaged at all times. He even gave us some tips that prevented us to get in any tourist trap. Jorge provided a smooth ride trough heavy traffic. The group was about 16 people and although our departure was delayed because of an event at Zócalo, they managed to get us to all locations on time. First we visited Tlatelolco; plaza de las tres culturas. After, we stopped for a shot of tequila at Platería Rafael were we met master engraver and artist, Rafael Córdova. We then traveled to Teotihuacán for the highlight of our tour, stopped for lunch at La Chingada, and ended at Basílica de Guadalupe. We were able to spend plenty of time at all sites and did not felt rushed. Tour lasted about 8 hours. The only reason I can’t give the tour 5 stars was because of our lunch experience. The spot chosen for our group did not had many traditional Mexican dishes, the presentation of the dishes was not great and the server although very polite, was not clear explaining the menu. Overall it was fun and if I have the chance to do it again I would, perhaps getting street tacos before we leave.
