Description

Get a taste of Mexico's rich religious heritage on a tour of the Shrine of Guadalupe, the 2,500-year-old archaeological site of Teotihuacan, and the colonial Church of Santiago at Tlatelolco. Along the way, listen to engaging narratives from your experienced local guide, whose stories bring each site to life.

Your adventure starts as you visit the Plaza de las Tres Culturas, Tlatelolco's main square, and get an introduction to the 3 main periods of Mexico's history: pre-Columbian, Spanish colonial, and the modern independent mestizo nation. Stop at the Church of Santiago, which was built on top of Aztec ruins in 1522, and learn about the last stand of the Aztecs against conquistador Hernan Cortes.

Head to Mexico's largest shrine, the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, where it is believed that Mexico's patron saint, Our Lady of Guadalupe, appeared to Saint Juan Diego. Here, on the site that houses the tilma (cloak) of Saint Juan Diego, get a look at the old and new basilicas. On your way to Teotihuacan, stop for some mezcal tasting and an optional Mexican lunch.

Next, explore the 2,500-year-old settlement of Teotihuacan, the “birthplace of the gods.” Contemplate the site's mysterious origins as you stroll along the 2.5-mile (4-km) Avenue of the Dead, climb the 243 steps of the Pyramid of the Sun, and see jade and obsidian artifacts at the Pyramid of the Moon. Notice the bird motifs on the pillars at the Palace of the Quetzalpapalotl and admire carvings of a snake-like deity on the Temple of the Feathered Serpent.

Well, where to begin? This tour sounds really good on paper, but it really leaves a lot to be desired. First, after making the reservation and printing out our vouchers, I noticed a paragraph in big, red letters that warned us to call the "Amigo Tours" office with at least 24 hours before our tour to confirm, or else the tour would be canceled. When I called the day before, the phone kept ringing, and ringing, and ringing, and ringing, but nobody answered, not even a darn voice mail picked up! This went on for the entire day (Friday). I sent and email but the same thing; no one seemed to have received it. Next, after the bus picked us up at the Auditorio Nacional, they took us to the second stop, where they were trying to sort all the people to the right buses, but they were so disorganized that the process took forever and a day, so we lost almost an hour right there. Finally, our tour guide (Carlos) barely spoke English, so it was so hard to understand--even in Spanish!

Entrance to Teotihuacan is free for all on Sundays. Therefore, if you take this tour on Sunday like we did, expect major traffic to Teotihuacan as well as major lineups to the pyramids. To climb the pyramid of the sun took an hour and a half, the total amount given to us to visit the site. We had to hurry down and take the bus back.

Rosa Maria and Rudolpho were great and super Knowledgeable in history. Too many stops I would say less stops and better option for lunch. Overall would recommend and great price .
