On this tour, you will spend the day learning and exploring the fascinating ruins left behind by indigenous people of Mexico around 250 AD. The site was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987 and is the most visited archaeological site in all of Mexico. Once a mighty city that ruled over the central part of Mexico and had influence as far as Tikal (what is now Guatemala), Teotihuacan remains a modern-day mystery to us. First, you will visit the incredible Temple of the Sun, the Moon, then you’ll stroll up the Avenue of the Dead. After that you’ll enter the Citadel, see the hidden Temple of Quetzalcoatl, and visit the remains of extraordinary mural paintings. You’ll then have a nice lunch with a wonderful view, and on your way back, you’ll visit the beating heart of Mexican religion, the Shrine of the Lady of Guadalupe.
I lived in Mexico City until the age of 5 when my family moved to the French part of Canada. In Montreal I discovered snow, befriended a beautiful white squirrel and got my first taste of school. After two years, my parents were fed up with the cold weather and moved us back to warm and sunny Mexico. I was fortunate enough to go to a private school where I learned English, French and got in touch with several of my passions: reading, traveling, movies and rugby. Ever since, I try to read at least a book per month, try to travel outside my country once each year, have been playing rugby for a very long time, went to film school and worked in the Mexican Film system. When the opportunity to become a guide was presented to me, I took it and haven’t looked back since. I have travelled through most of Mexico and enjoy, very much, the awe and wonder this country is capable of and would like nothing more than to help replicate that sentiment in whoever is with me discovering it at the time.
