Archaeological Gems, Historic Churches and Sugar Skeletons

This is a unique tour of Mexico which incorporates its stunning archaeological sites with vivid festivals for the Day of the Dead. Alongside visiting the Templo Mayor, Teotihuacan and 16th century churches, we venture to Mixquic, famed for its sugar skulls and the heart of the unique celebrations during this special holiday, which UNESCO added to its list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

Tour highlights:

  • Take a special boat trip at Xochimilco to see the network of canals known as the Aztecs' floating gardens
  • Partake in the lively Day of the Dead celebrations in Mixquic which have roots in the Pre-Columbian past
  • Explore the marvels of the Teotihuacan, the immense site where Aztecs thought time began
