Mexico City – To know Mexico you need to know Mexico’s capital, one of the world’s largest and most exciting cities.

Oaxaca – A colonial gem, famous for its extraordinary crafts and gastronomy.

Palenque – The mystical home of legendary Mayan King Pakal, guarded by howler monkeys who inhabit the surrounding jungle.

Chichen Itza – One of the Seven New World Wonders, a must-see on every trip to Mexico.

You will be amazed by the size of the city from the moment you arrive. Meet and greet with a local representative and transfer to your hotel.
Get to know one of the world´s biggest and most exciting cities! Enjoy a guided visit in the historical centre, listed by UNESCO as World Heritage. This interesting tour will include “The Zocalo”, the heart of the city, where you will visit the Metropolitan Cathedral, one of the oldest and largest of the Americas, and the National Palace, home of the famous murals of Diego Rivera. 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. The Templo Mayor is thought to be located on the exact spot where the Aztecs saw the eagle perching on a cactus with a snake in its beak. This symbolized for the Aztecs that they had reached their promised land.
Next, we drive down the beautiful Paseo de la Reforma Avenue to arrive at Chapultepec Park. In pre-Hispanic times a summer residence for the noble class of the Aztecs, now it is Mexico City’s largest park and one of the largest city parks in the world. We will visit the Museum of Anthropology (closed on Mondays). This museum is considered to be among the world’s finest of its kind. Here you will admire the famous Aztec calendar stone, models of Tenochtitlán, a fascinating market place diorama, giant stone Olmec heads from the jungles of Tabasco and Veracruz, among many other interesting treasures.

Included: Breakfast
Discover Teotihuacán, ‘the place where gods were created’. Teotihuacan is one of the most impressive archaeological sites of the country. The history of Teotihuacan is quite mysterious. The earliest buildings were constructed around 200 BC. It is assumed that the city may have counted 200,000 inhabitants during its period of prosperity. In those years, Teotihuacán was the biggest city of the American continent and one of the biggest of the world. Until its inhabitants abandoned the city around the 8th century, Teotihuacan was probably the most significant and civilized cultural centre of ancient Mexico. During this guided excursion you will encounter the magic and mystery of Teotihuacan.
Admire (and climb?) the Pyramids of the Sun and the Moon. Walk down the Avenue of the Dead, visit the Temple of Quetzalcoatl with its unique stone sculptures of plumed serpents, the Temple of the Butterflies, and the Fortresses.
Before arriving at your hotel, we make a stop at the Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe, a pilgrimage place for millions of Mexicans and people from all around the world.

Included: Breakfast
Today we leave Mexico City behind. We are heading west towards Puebla, Mexico’s fourth largest city, passing the photogenic, snow-capped volcanoes Popocatépetl (Smoking Mountain, 5.464m) and Iztaccíhuatl (Sleeping Lady, 5.230m). A visit is planned to Santa Maria Tonantzintla with its gorgeous temple decorated by indigenous people. In Puebla, also known as the “City of Angels”, we will visit the extraordinary Rosary Chapel, the Cathedral, the main square and its beautiful historical centre. Lunch included. Continue to Oaxaca, one of the most colorful colonial towns of Mexico and, just like Puebla, listed as World Heritage.

Included: Breakfast and Lunch
Visit Monte Alban, built on a mountain top flattened by the Zapotecs. We will find here cultural traces from different civilizations, such as the Olmecs, Mixtecs and Zapotecs. We will then continue to Mitla, one of the most enigmatic sacred places of the region, especially famous for its mosaics.
The village had great importance as a burial site and is also a great place to buy your crafts. En route we will make a stop at the Tule tree, perhaps one of the biggest living beings in the world. Return to Oaxaca and experience the beauty of this city, with wonderful crafts, typical gastronomy, and sights such as the Cathedral, the magnificent Santo Domingo church, the Museum of Gold, and the colorful “20 de Noviembre” indoor market.

Included: Breakfast
In the early morning we will depart to the beautiful state of Chiapas. On the way you will enjoy the wonderful landscapes of the Sierra Sur. Today’s highlight will be a boat ride through the Sumidero Canyon, which measures a thousand meters at its highest point. Admire the beautiful rock formations and enjoy the abundant wildlife that lives on the shores of the Grijalva river (crocodiles, spider monkeys, and many different species of birds). Afterwards, you will pass through the historically important town Chiapa de Corzo, on our way to San Cristobal de las Casas. Dinner at night.

Included: Breakfast en route and Dinner
Scheduled for today is an excursion full of mysticism and magic. Visit the indigenous villages of San Juan Chamula and Zinacantan, located in the highlands of Chiapas. In both Tzotzil Maya communities, the complex ethnic composition of Chiapas is well reflected and they still demonstrate a rich variety of customs and beliefs expressed in traditions of both Pagan and Christian origin.
Interestingly, San Juan Chamula enjoys a unique autonomous status within Mexico, which has kept the village authentic. Afternoon at leisure. We recommend you to explore the beautiful city of San Cristobal de las Casas with, amongst its many attractions, a colorful market, the cathedral and the Jade museum. javascript:void(0);

Included: Breakfast
On the way to Palenque we will visit the waterfalls of Agua Azul. The turquoise color, which makes these waterfalls so unique, comes from the high level of mineral content of the water. Enjoy the surrounding jungle environment and go for a swim (if time permits it). Afterwards we will continue our way through lush jungle with Palenque as today’s final destination. In the evening, dinner at the hotel.

Included: Breakfast and Dinner
Visit the archaeological zone of Palenque, surrounded by jungle, and one of the most important sites of the Maya World. It was inside the Pyramid of the Inscriptions where King Pakal’s sarcophagus and its carved gravestone were found. Enjoy the impressive structures as well as the breathtaking natural environment of this World Heritage Site.
After this visit, we head to the coastal town of Campeche, where the Spanish first set foot on Mexican soil. Campeche’s prosperity as a thriving port town made it a frequent target for attacks by English, French and Dutch pirates. Following the worst attack, in 1663, impressive defensive walls were built around the town. Upon arrival you will enjoy a panoramic tour through the city. In the evening, dinner at the hotel.

Included: Breakfast and Dinner
On the way to Merida we will visit Uxmal (meaning “built three times"), located in the Puuc region. Uxmal, also listed as World Heritage, is considered one of the Mayan cities that is most representative of the Puuc style, the region's dominant architectural style.
Explore the Magician Pyramid, the Quadrangle of the Nuns, the Governor’s palace and the ballgame court. After lunch, you will proceed to Merida, “The White City”, to enjoy a panoramic tour, including Montejo Avenue, the monument to Motherland, the main square, the cathedral and government palace.

Included: Breakfast and Lunch
At the end of the Early Classic Period, around the year 600 AD, Chichen Itza was one of the largest and most prominent Mayan cities. Nowadays, Chichen Itza is undoubtedly the best-preserved Mayan site on the Yucatan Peninsula, and it was recently declared one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Various different architectural styles can be observed in Chichen Itza.
Most famous landmarks are the Temple of Kukulkan (“El Castillo”), the Ballgame Court, the Platform of the Skulls, the Temple of the Jaguar, the Observatory, the One Thousand Columns, and the Sacred Cenote.
