Brace yourself for a BIG day of all things Mexican on this Mexico City tour to see five of the city’s best street markets, sample local delights like cactus candy, climb to the top of Sun Pyramid, sip on sacred Aztec drinks, and dine with a local family in their home…all in 13 hours of power-touring! Phew.

This full day Mexico City tour will give you an incredibly in depth local experience, from the city’s bustling markets to one of the small towns on the outskirts of the city.


We’ll begin the day by experiencing five of Mexico City’s most exciting local street markets. The first one we’ll visit is a relatively unknown art market, a highlight if you’re a fan of Mexico’s most famous artist exports Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Next we’ll make our way to one of the most bizarre markets in the city, before finally reaching a 3-in-1 market offering fresh fruits, vegetables, prepared foods, and the largest flower selection in the city. Along the way, you’ll get to taste a variety of samples until you’re full, satisfied, and ready to power nap on the way to the pyramids.

 You’ll awake refreshed and ready to encounter the Teotihuacan Pyramids, “where the men become gods”. We’ll begin our visit at the impressive Moon Pyramid, with a guided Teotihuacan tour to learn about the history, meaning, and architecture of one of the most representative icons of Latin America. Our exploration continues with a walk through the Calzada de los Muertos (Dead Pass) to reach the Sun Pyramid, which is the tallest and most spectacular in the area. We will have the chance to climb 63 metres up to the top - without the morning crowds, we’ll have the whole pyramids to ourselves! Once on top you will feel the amazing energy that flows through the pyramids, and you will feel fully recharged and peaceful!

You will have some time to relax and enjoy the pyramids before we continue our walking tour through the streets of a local town and visit three sustainable family projects to understand the local culture and way of life. The cherry on top of our big day will be dinner!  We’ll be welcomed into a local family’s home to see how locals live outside Mexico City. Here, we’ll get to experience customary dinner routines and conversations, and enjoy some real local flavours of typical Mexican kitchens. Delicious!

After dinner, we’ll head back to Mexico City, happy, full, and enriched from our exciting day exploring local life, ancient pyramids, and delicious food!

“Excellent day. Both Rodrigeo and Cesar were superb. We learned a lot, ate great food and saw things we woul not have on our own. I would absolutely recommend either of the individual trips or the combo to anyone. My only suggestion is to give travelers a little more information in advance. I assumed that we'd be in one group with one vehicle all day and brought a large duffel with spare shoes and jackets, thinking I could stuff it in the van, did not know the first half was on public transport. Again, our guides were fantastic and that is the most important thing.”
