This full day Mexico City tour has been specially designed to show you the major historical sights and hidden corners of the city, to give you a more in-depth perspective on local life and history. The tour can be tailored to your specific interests.
We start way back in Aztec times, with a visit to the Templo Mayor at Tenochtitlan and the museum, close to the city centre. We will then walk the short distance to the Zócalo area, visiting the Cathedral and the Palacio Nacional, which houses the famous Rivera mural. From here, we continue past the 18th century Casa de Azulejos (House of Tiles) palace and on to the Torre Latinoamericano, affording great for views over the sprawling city. En-route to the large Alameda city park, we will stop at the Palacio de Bellas Artes to look at the murals (including the most famous one by Siqueiros) and also the beautiful Correos building, which is actually a post office! The Almaeda park is a great way to get a feel for the real city and enjoy a breath of 'fresh air' from the streets.
Following a stop for lunch at Zona Rosa, we will visit the Bosque de Chapultepec, one of the world's biggest city parks and the excellent Museum of Anthropology, where you will have the chance to learn more about the history, art and cultures of Mexico, from ancient times up until modern day. After that, you have the option of continuing to Plaza Garibaldi to see the Mariachi, or returning to your hotel.
