What you'll do

Teotihuacan Pyramids at Max

In this private, guided & chauffeured visit to 650 acres of the oldest known megalopolis in the Americas, we will take you on a special walking route to all highlights which include the Sun & Moon pyramids and the magnificent Citadel.

We will learn of Teotihuacan's history, its architecture and of its art. We will show you the superimposed structures that kept this city alive for a millennium while trading with places as far as Guatemala.

The impressive Avenue of the Death will be the back bone of our whole visit. 90% of the large temples and palaces lie along of it.

 

In the modern town of Teotihuacan we will take you to a local pulque (drink) depot to learn and taste the lore of this city while learning about products from 1,500 years ago.  

 

We will enjoy a light Mexican lunch at the pulque depot before leaving for a neighboring town that has kept some of the traditions from Teotihuacan, alive.

 

There will be a visit to a 16th century magnificent goldfoiled altarpiece in a church like those that the Spanish built to counter the local traditions and religious practices. Nopal and Maguey, two unique native plants will line the full road before arriving at a Maguey plant nursery.

 

We will see how locals still obtain a pulque distillate, a 1,500 year tradition in the area. There will be Pulque and Teoctli (pulque distillate) tasting for your enjoyment as well as a Teoctli Cocktail.

Where you'll be

We will pick you up at your accommodation within the Mexico City limits before heading out 25 miles to the archaeological site of Teotihuacan. We will visit the pyramids' site and the local pulque depot at the Teotihuacan municipality. Then we will head to an adjacent municipality to visit the 16th century Parish, the Maguey nursery, and the Teoctli distillery.
