Mexico City offers a vibrant blend of old and new, with incredible art, architecture, food, and history. Let us expose you to the highlights of this stunning global city with group tours like these.
The ruins of Teotihuacan, which predates the Mayans, may be the most visited tourist attraction near Mexico City. A group tour will provide historical and cultural information to bring these ancient ruins to life. Your group will view the Pyramid of the Sun and Pyramid of the Moon and learn the cultural significance behind the imagery. This is a must-visit for Mexico City group travelers with an interest in history, culture, or architecture, and a guided tour is the only way to do Teotihuacan justice.
2. Basilica de Guadalupe
The Basilica de Guadalupe is not only one of the most important sites for Catholics, who make pilgrimages to the basilica, it’s one of the most stunning churches anywhere. On your group tour, you’ll learn about the Virgin of Guadalupe’s appearance. You’ll be able to tour both the old and new basilica for a study in architectural contrasts.
3. Zocalo and Anthropology Museum
The central square in Mexico City, Zocalo is one of the most important attractions. The site has been significant since Aztec times as the center of the capital Tenochtitlan, and today the area is the political hub of Mexico City. A Zocalo tour will bring to life some of the most important moments in the capital area while giving you a feel for Mexico today.
After visiting Zocalo, your group will see indigenous artifacts at the Anthropology Museum. The permanent collection contains excellent artifacts of Mayan, Mexica, Oaxacan, and Toltec culture, and rotating special exhibits honor modern Mexican artists that blend historic and innovative traditions.
4. Zocalo and Chapultepec Castle
Combine a Zocalo visit with a trip to Chapultepec Castle, an 18th century palace. While the palace used to house Mexico’s President, today it’s the location of the National History Museum. The interior of the castle is stunning, with stained glass windows, sculptures, tapestries and other furnishings. Browse the museum to learn more about Mexico’s history, or spend time in the fabulous gardens. A climb up to the roof, where you can see downtown Mexico City, is well worth it for active group travelers.
5. Frida Kahlo Museum & Coyoacan
No visit to Mexico City would be complete without a stop at Frida Kahlo’s house in the charming Coyoacan neighborhood. On a guided tour of the Blue House, you’ll view Frida’s personal objects and artworks while learning more about her life. You can also spend time in the lush gardens. While your group is in the area, spend time poking around the neighborhood, which is a tourist favorite for its cultural attractions and coffee shops.
6. La Ciudadela Shopping Tour
At La Ciudadela, you will find artisanal crafts from all over Mexico, including delicate hand-painted animals, ceramics, and beadwork. Half the fun of visiting La Ciudadela is the bargaining, and half the fun is browsing the variety of high-quality handicrafts on display.
