Mexico City Tour of Local Markets and Teotihuacán
From $81.00

Mexico City is the vibrant and populous capital of Mexico, famous for its rich food traditions and colorful handicrafts. Get an insider’s tour of the city’s hidden shopping stalls on this unique combo tour, which also includes a guided, visit to the pre-Columbian ruins of Teotihuacan and a home-cooked meal with a local family. The tour is limited to a small group, meaning plenty of time for questions.

What to Expect
Meet your small group at Museo Mexicano del Diseno in the heart of Mexico City. You’ll follow your guide to an under-the-radar crafts market, where you’ll get a peek at Mexico’s colorful artisanal wares.

Continue your insider’s market tour with stops at the largest flower stalls in the city and a one-of-a-kind "witch market" while sampling fresh local treats like tamales, tostadas, tacos, and kettle-cooked corn on the cob.

From there, travel like a local on a public bus to Teotihuacan, once the most important city in Mesoamerica and a UNESCO-listed site. Your guide will be on-hand to explain the mysteries of the ancient, abandoned temple complexes, but you’ll also enjoy plenty of time to explore at your own pace. End the day with a rare opportunity to meet with local families, where you’ll hear about local family-run businesses and sit down to a sensational home-cooked meal.
