  • Mexico's intense culinary and artistic traditionsFrom ancient temples and cities to colonial townHighlands, jungles and coastlines
The Mexico: Mayans, Aztecs & Conquistadors tour starts in Mexico City and ends in Cancún. The Mexico: Mayans, Aztecs & Conquistadors is a local culture tour that takes 15 days taking you from Mexico City to Cancún and through other destinations in Mexico.

Few countries can compete with Mexico when it comes to unleashing the inner Indiana Jones in each of us. Jungle clad temples and abandoned ancient civilisations make way to colonial era towns with cobbled streets and Spanish architecture. This fusion of history has led to Mexico’s unique culture from the art of Frida Kahlo to Oaxaca’s succulent cuisine. Uncover the country’s historical and cultural layers as we journey from the highlands of Mexico City to the jungles and beaches of the Yucatan via the lands of Aztecs, Zapotec, Mayas and Conquistadors.

Mexico: Mayans, Aztecs and Conquistadores
“This was a very comprehensive tour from Mexico City to the Yucatan Peninsular visiting many amazing archaeological sites, colonial cities, markets, churches and seeing different local products being made. It also gave us the opportunity to sample a wide range of different Mexican foods including a lesson on how to prepare, cook and present a typical Mexican meal. Also interesting to see the varied wildlife and often stunning scenery.”

Mexico tour
“The title of this tour describes the itinerary. We explored archaeological sites galore, toured historical city centers, visited local artisans, and ate lots of Mexican (and some Mayan) food. The hotels were all comfortable, and the baos mostly had toilet paper and soap. We had opportunities to swim and to visit a cenote.”
