Make your way to Mexico City’s Historic Center to meet a guide and small-group in a central location close to the zócolo. This tour begins at the beginning: learn about the legendary founding of Mexico City, Aztec culture and traditions, and the first contact between the Spaniards and the residents of Teotihuacan. Follow city streets to buildings that date back to the colonial period, and find out how life and religious practices changed under Spanish rule.

Leave Mexico City’s history behind, and hop the subway to one of the city’s most colorful markets. Visit a few local stalls to sample some regional foods (touring the market with a local guide is the perfect way to learn about the dazzling variety of snacks on display), and see the fresh, aromatic building blocks of Mexico City cuisine.

Continue to the Fine Arts Palace, or the Palacio de Bellas Artes, for a sweet treat and hot drink in an elegant architectural landmark. Find out how the building was transformed from a colonial-era convent to a cultural hub with Tiffany glass and sumptuous décor, then keep exploring on your own—the tour concludes at the Fine Arts Palace, close to the restaurants and sights of the Historic Center.
