Overview of the tour in Mexico City

It is the best introduction to Mexico City to understand one of the largest metropolises in the world.

You will learn about the Aztec/Mexica origin and colonization in New Spain. We will visit pre-Hispanic ruins in the heart of the historic center, which is located next to colonial and modern buildings.

We will talk about the 3 eras: Pre-Hispanic Mexico, the Viceroyalty, and the Republic. Also loved and hated presidents, artists, and characters who gave identity to the city.

We will go to places that do not appear in tourist guides or maps, while we see churches, monuments, and museums.

We will also try a fermented drink that is typical of the center of the country. We will use the 5 senses to learn words in Nahuatl, listen to the local musical rhythms, and learn about the stones that give identity to the houses.

Keep in mind that only the outside of the places will be visited, we will give you schedules and tips for you to come back.
