On this day excursion from Mexico City, we will visit the Teotihuacan pyramids with an expert archaeologist or historian and absorb this UNESCO World Heritage site. An hour from Mexico City, this former metropolis is home to important pyramids, palaces and murals dating back to 100 B.C. In the first half of the day, our expert guide will discuss the importance of this site in the pre-Columbian history of the Americas. We’ll have a local Mexican lunch afterward then head to a second nearby location, Acolman, to see a 16th-century convent that was instrumental during the Spanish conquest in the conversion of indigenous populations to Catholicism.
This one was a wow! Very knowledgeable guide who showed us sites and shared unique and interesting facts and stories. Terrific personality - consistently asked for input. Took us to a market for a truly local lunch. Driver was also excellent.
