Climb the Pyramid of the Sun at Teotihuacan, visit the Frieda Kahlo Museum in colorful Coyoacán and enjoy a boat ride in Xochimilco. Detailed Itinerary Day 1: Teotihuacan, Guadalupe Shrine and Tlatelolco Your first day begins with a drive to Tlatelolco, the largest archaeological site in Mexico City. Learn about the importance of this place that was part of the capital of the Aztec empire. See the Plaza of the 3 Cultures where pre-Hispanic, colonial and modern Mexico blend. Continue on to the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the most important religious site in all of Mexico and one of the most visited shrines in the Catholic world. More than 20 million pilgrims visit the site every year. From the Basilica of Guadalupe, the tour continues to Teotihuacan, known as the City of the Gods. A professional guide will take you on a journey through the history of this mystical place. Walk among the ruins and marvel at the size of the pyramids. Climb up the stairs at the famous Sun and Moon pyramids and take in the views from the top. After a day appreciating Mexico’s history, you'll be transferred back to the meeting point. Day 2: Coyoacán, National University and Frida Kahlo Museum Your second day starts with a drive to Coyoacán, an area of the city dating back to pre-Hispanic times. Walk along the cobblestone streets and admire the picturesque houses, and then visit Casa Azul, the Frida Kahlo Museum. Learn about the life and iconic work of this famous artist. The house is where Frida Kahlo lived with her husband, Diego Rivera. You'll have an hour of free time in the museum to explore it thoroughly. Next stop is the National Autonomous University, founded in 1551, where you'll visit the UNESCO-listed central campus with art from muralists Diego Rivera and Juan O'Gorman. Your tour continues to Xochimilco, located 17 miles south of Mexico City. This ecological reserve is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that dates to Aztec times. Take an hour’s ride on a colorful boat known as a trajunera, enjoy festive music from other boats and meet vendors selling delicious snacks you can buy. At the end of the boat ride, you'll be transferred back to the meeting point.

    On the first day, it bothered me a lot since the truck almost left us in the visit of Frida Calho's house. They had a lot of lack of control in the assistants, they did not have the complete list of passengers. The truck started without us, we had to run to reach it. What a bad service.

    The first day we had Gerson and Ari as a guide. Gerson is amazing, kind and super studied ... very expensive as we would say, he explained everything and we really learned that. The tour was fantastic. On the second day we had a change of guides and because I particularly lacked that beautiful spark of the first day, I was owed a little. However, it is a tour that I recommend because it is well known and learned depending on the guides, you just have to know that it is going at a fast pace and there is little time to explore or buy.

    Waiting time to leave.

    In the instructions they talk about a schedule to leave the different points and it is not respected. We had to wait for some tourists who had not even woken up when they arrived at the hotel and I think it is disrespectful to put others to wait for the negligence of some.
