My family and I booked this tour hoping we'd get to see the pyramids and the basilica with a bit of history about them, but we ended seeing more than we expected. Before the pyramids, we were taken to a silver factory and we were shown how it's done, as well as how they can get an amazing amount of... More

This is a tour bookable from either your hotel or from one of the agencies in town. The basilica is technically part of the Vatican (not Teotihuacan). The buildings on the site tend to be in various stages of sinking which adds an additional element to the visit. Apart from the Lady of Guadalupe there are a few other churches... More

I took this tour last week, July 2015. Very good, informative, inexpensive and you visit several places. Be ready to get a buzz with the tequila site tasting. You get picked up around 9Am and dropped off but 5 pm. So is the whole day for about 40 bucks.

I visited Basilica Lady of Guadalupe one week before Pope John Paul II arrived in Mexico City to canonize Juan Diego, whose vision of the Virgin Mary became one of Mexico's most powerful religious symbols. The city was electric but the crowd at la Basilica, especially so. The original church is absolutely gorgeous and intricately ornate. From the outside, you... More

I was overcome with emotion here. This is a beautiful place to visit. Be sure to visit all the churches, not just the newest one.

Definitely make your way out to see the pyramids (leave DF extremely early to beat the traffic, crowds and heat) and visit this place on your way back. The story of the Guadalupe shrine apron and apparitions is fascinating and the compound is impressive. There are several buildings to see and visit there. Can be done in about 45 minutes... More

The basilica of Virgin of Guadalupe is a must see if u visit Mexico, the old basilica is amazing, great history n no charge, if u climb the Hill of Tepeyac u will admire the gorgeous view of the whole new basilica n around it, good signs in english with description of the apparitions of virgin.

I followed Lonely Planet advice. I took a cab to Terminal Central de Norte. There were buses leaving every 20 min to Teotihuacan. They leave you right at the gate and pick you up right there too. I found everyone extremely helpful. The trip took a little over an hour on a Sunday without terrible traffic. I think Sunday is... More
