6 Day Tour from Mexico City to Mexico City

2017 Tour Details

Rejoice in your faith on this Mexico tour highlighting not only Mexico’s devotion, but also its Aztec history. You’ll spend four nights in Mexico City and one night in Puebla, one of Mexico’s oldest cities and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You’ll also spend time in Teotihuacan, Tlaxcala, Cholula, and Coyoacan.

Along with fellow believers, you’ll visit the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City. This is where the Virgin of Guadalupe appeared before San Juan Diego and is today one of the world’s most visited shrines. More treasured religious sites await you in Tlaxcala, where you’ll visit the Church of San Francisco; San Miguel del Milagro Shrine, built in 1643 and where Archangel Michael appeared to Diego Lazaro; Our Lady of Ocotlán Shrine, where the Virgin Mary is said to have appeared to Juan Diego; and more.

History buffs will enjoy time in Cholula, where you’ll see the largest pyramid ever built, and Teotihuacan, inhabited from around 200 BC until its collapse almost 1,000 years later. In Teotihuacan, you’ll see the Pyramid of the Sun, the highest structure in the complex; the Pyramid of the Moon; and the Temple of Quetzalcoatl, one of the archaeological zone’s best preserved temples. But that’s not all…more history awaits in Mexico City, where a guided sightseeing tour includes the National Palace, a beautiful colonial building where the palace of the Aztec ruler once stood, and the Palacio de Chapultepec, an amazing castle on the site of a sacred place for Aztecs.

Other highlights of this Mexico tour include Coyoacan, a historic center and home to the city’s famous handicraft markets, and Xochimilco, where you’ll take a boat ride along the canals of the floating gardens. For the value-minded traveler, this Mexico tour is a perfect way to reaffirm your faith!
