Overview
Brace yourself for a BIG day full of all things Mexican on this Mexico City tour to see three of the city’s best street markets, sample local delights like cactus candy, climb to the top of the Sun Pyramid, sip on sacred ancient traditional drinks, and dine with a local family in their home…all in 12 hours of power-touring! Phew
Highlights
  • Unique combo tour of Mexico City markets and Teotihuacan
  • Live like a local: discover hidden food and craft hubs
  • Get a guided look at pre-Columbian ruins on a small-group tour
  • Enjoy a savory home-cooked local meal at a family's home
What to Expect
Meet your small group at Museo Mexicano del Diseno in the heart of Mexico City. You’ll follow your guide to an under-the-radar crafts market, where you’ll get a peek at Mexico’s colorful artisanal wares.
Continue your insider’s market tour with stops at the largest flower stalls in the city and a one-of-a-kind "witch market" while sampling fresh local treats like tamales, tostadas, tacos, and kettle-cooked corn on the cob.
From there, travel like a local on a public bus to Teotihuacan, once the most important city in Mesoamerica and a UNESCO-listed site. Your guide will be on-hand to explain the mysteries of the ancient, abandoned temple complexes, but you’ll also enjoy plenty of time to explore at your own pace. End the day with a rare opportunity to meet with local families, where you’ll hear about local family-run businesses and sit down to a sensational home-cooked meal.
