Transport your mind back 500 years... Imagine the ancient City of Tenochtitlán with its huge pyramids, Aztec temples and palaces emerging from the cobalt blue water of the lake which was once here. Today, below modern "Ciudad de México", the ancient Aztec city sleeps - just waiting to be rediscovered by you! Explore downtown with an archaeologist, visit modern and colonial neighbourhoods and discover archaeological sites and the secret remains of the city's ancient past. Uncover ancient history and the archaeological gems which are lost in the chaotic city and see how the fusion of Mexica and Spanish cultures have helped to create the city we know today.

Your Local Host will communicate with you directly by email to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience, you can always change your mind about what you want to do.

Your local may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.

Although you will see the main attractions in the area, your Local Host will also help you to discover the places and local histories that you won’t find in a guidebook and that make CDMX truly unique.
