In Mexico City, with more than 22 million inhabitants and over 4 thousand years of history, time and organisation is vital to make the most out of your time here. This tour is the perfect way for you to experience the best highlights of the Mexican capital city.
Please make your way to the agreed meeting point for your journey to begin. You will begin with a visit to the National Museum of Anthropology, one of the biggest museums in the world and one of the most important in Latin America. This astonishing museum honours and gives value to the history, the knowledge, and the development of the important Mesoamerican populations. In the different rooms you will find many small objects, from 10.000 year-old spear tips, to ceramic and stone pieces of great symbolic meaning; from pieces that you can hold in the palm of your hand, to more monumental, impressive and more complex pieces like the Stone of the Sun, also known as the Aztec Calendar, and the Giant stone heads of the Olmec civilisation. You will be able to admire the model of the former Aztec capital Tenochtitlan, now the centre of Mexico City, and to feel the greatness of Mexico’s many indigenous Civilisations. To help you understand the impressive contents of these magnificent pieces of history, you will be accompanied by a bilingual tour guide that will explain some of the meaning and importance that these objects held in the past.
Later on you will be transferred along Paseo de la Reforma. Like every other big city, Mexico has been growing and adapting to the needs of its people. Paseo de la Reforma has seen over 100 years of changes which can still be seen today. Along the avenue you will see monumental sculptures such as the iconic "Angel of Independence" and the "Hunter Diana", together with more recent creations like the "Columna del Bicentenario".
Next, you will visit the historic center, more precisely the Zocalo, where the Aztec empire was once built; an empire that was mostly demolished by the Spanish conquest, and then rebuilt as a “modern” city under the Spanish crown. Depending on the season or the time of the day, you will be immersed in a chaotic sea of people who live, work, visit, shop and more here. There are still many historical sites dating from Aztec times, that you can discover and understand why Mexico City was once the great Tenochtitlan. Walking through the streets of the city centre, you will visit some emblematic buildings like the Metropolitan Cathedral, the National Palace, and Bellas Artes, the fine arts palace. Upon finishing the tour you journey comes to an end in the downtown area.
