Mexico City Alternative Tour

Mexico City arose in the years following the conquest in 1521, on the ruins of Tenochtitlan. The latter was the capital of the Aztec empire, in the middle of the now drained Lake Texcoco. Nowadays, it´s the oldest capital city of the Americas with a metropolitan area that counts around 24 million inhabitants. Actually, Mexico City, with its distinct mestizo culture, blending native Indian (Nahuatl) and Spanish heritages, has recently become one of the most dynamic and exciting cities of the world. So, to know Mexico, you definitely need to know Mexico City!

What are you going to do?

In general, the guide of this tour will take you to the historical center of Mexico City, a World Heritage. Amongst others, your visit will include the “Zocalo”, the heart of the city. Here you will visit the Metropolitan Cathedral, one of the oldest and largest of the Americas. Furthermore, you will tour the National Palace, where you can admire the famous murals of Diego Rivera. Besides,  you will also see the ruins of the Templo Mayor, one of the most important temples of the Aztecs in their ancient capital city of Tenochtitlan. Actually, people say that the Templo Mayor is on the exact spot where the Aztecs saw the eagle perching on a cactus with a snake in its beak. Hence, this symbolized for the Aztecs that they had reached their promised land.

    "Everything in one tour"
    I really enjoyed the tour. The guide was great, knowledgeable and ready to answer any questions. We made a stop at a shop and restaurant later where you can buy some artisan stuff like obsidian figurines and taste some pulque, mezcal and tequila.

    "Great start in Mexico"
    This definetly needs to go on your Bucketlist. When arriving in Mexico City I had not much knowledge about anything. The tour was great to start out in Mexico City. You will not only hear all about the history of the country and the city, but also get invaluable hints and tips from your guide for your visit. He recommended the coolest bars and restaurants!
