Latin America’s biggest city is overflowing with incredible sights and unforgettable experiences. Discover the best of them and experience a slice of everyday life as you join a local guide to explore streets lined with pre-Hispanic, colonial and modern buildings. Beginning in the heart of Mexico City, our journey starts with a visit to Templo Mayor, a culturally significant site that was the centre of the Aztec world and where they chose to build their city. Explore the remains of the ancient city before visiting the nearby Metropolitan Cathedral, one of the most important buildings from the colonial period. Learn how native traditions and religion evolved over time. Next, it’s time to do as the locals do and hop aboard the metro and travel to the splendid Palace of Fine Arts. We’ll stop at a great spot for a coffee and snack and discuss the time of Porfirio Diaz and the Mexican Revolution.  Continue with a beautiful walk through Alameda Central, the oldest park in Mexico, and head to our last stop for the day, an old pulqueria. Enjoy a glass of pulque, a traditional alcoholic drink consumed in Mexico for more than a thousand years. You’ll soon find out why this was considered the drink of the gods by the Aztecs!
