Tour Itinerary

Trek up the pyramids of Teotihuacán, Sip (don't shoot) mezcal in its birthplace, Dip into the mineral pools of a petrified waterfall, Pick up artisan goods from local makers

Slip off those all-inclusive wristbands and look beyond the beachfront complexes to uncover a fascinating layer of Mexican culture. This nine-day trip hits all the marks with an itinerary that gets you climbing ancient pyramids and exploring ruins. Embark on a taco street crawl and learn how mezcal is made from its birthplace in Oaxaca. If you're yearning to take a dip into an infinity pool with a view, the mineral ponds of Hierve el Agua have got you covered.

Day 1: Mexico City
Arrive at any time. Tonight, head out with your fellow travellers! Start the night with a taco crawl, maybe hit up a lucha libre match before ending the night at a local bar.
Activity: Your opportunity to meet your CEO and fellow travellers, and learn more about your tour. Opt to join the group for a local meal afterwards. Don't forget to see the notice in the lobby (or ask reception) for the official time and place to meet up with the group.
Activity: Connect with new friends on your first night out in a new destination. Only available on 18-to-Thirtysomethings tours.
Accommodation: Selina Mexico City (or similar)

Day 2: Mexico City
Enjoy a free day to discover Mexico City. Explore one of the world's largest metropolitan areas. Opt to visit Frida Kahlo's house, see the iconic architecture of Museo Soumaya, or go on a party boat at the nearby floating gardens of Xochimilco. At night, opt to witness the high-flying practitioners of "lucha libre," Mexico's world-famous brand of wrestling.
Free Time: Get out and explore this Mexican metropolis.
Accommodation: Selina Mexico City (or similar)
Meal(s): Breakfast

Day 3: Mexico City
Take a day trip to the famous archaeological site of Teotihuacán to visit the massive pyramids. In the evening, set off in search of the perfect taco with a street food crawl. Indulge in one of Mexico's most iconic delicacies, as you take in the sights of this capital city.
Activity: Visit the ruins of Teotihuacán northeast of Mexico City. This ruin site dates back to 100BC and has the impressive Avenue of the Dead, Pyramid of the Sun and Pyramid of the Moon. Bring water, wear a hat and solid walking shoes, and climb the pyramids to learn all about this pre-Columbian Mesoamerican city.
Activity: Is it possible to find the perfect taco? Hit the streets of Mexico City to find out! One of Mexico's most famous (and delicious) dishes is known across the globe - but to find the best you need to go straight to it's origins. Prepare for a feast that you won't soon forget.
Accommodation: Selina Mexico City (or similar)
Meal(s): Breakfast Dinner

Day 4: Mexico City/Puebla

Day 7: Oaxaca
Set off for a day trip to the stunning Hierve el Agua petrified waterfall, then stop for a mezcal tasting on the way back to Oaxaca.
Activity: Travel to Hierve del Agua. This stunning natural formation consists of a series of mineral pools near the edge of a cliff. Over thousands of years, the heavily calcified water has flowed over the cliff, leaving mineral deposits as it does. The result is known as a "petrified waterfall" - nearly white rock formations that resembles a cascading fall. Enjoy time to explore the area and go for a swim in one of the mineral pools.
Activity: The Valley of Oaxaca is renowned as the birthplace of mezcal. Not to be confused with tequila, this distilled liquor is made in small batches from a variety of species of agave (spiky green plants that look like the tops of pineapples). Stop en route back to Oaxaca for a tasting - options range from white unaged mezcal (often sold with an agave larva inside), along with "reposado" and "añejo" (aged) batches. Grab a slice of orange that's coated in salt and mixed with chili and ground worms. Now, it's time to sip and enjoy.
Accommodation: Selina Oaxaca (or similar)
Meal(s): Breakfast

It was a dream vacation.Thank you.

All 100% perfect, nothing to be done better

The G Adventures tour was fantastic.

Very satisfied with tour, enjoyed it very much.

Everyone connected with the tour went above and beyond. The tour was more than I ever dreamt!

Our CEO Solofo for this trip is fantastic. He is patient and very nice. He went extra ways to help me and other members. I really enjoy this trip because of him! He is an excellent CEO. I definitely will recommend to other friends about him. Pls let him know that we really enjoy his introduction. He is also very informative and knowledgeable. In a word, he is excellent!

Great trip at a reasonable price.

Awesome trip in a great country. Our CEO was professional and fun!!!

G adventures offers hands down some of the best tour packages out there!

The Japan vacation was better than I expected!!!! It was an active "moving" trip, which I truly enjoyed. I've done "coach tours" where you sit on the bus and they take you -- this experience was "hands on" riding the buses, trains and running through the streets -- it was amazing !!!!! We got the full feel of Japan and the people. This trip is not for the weak or slow pace crowd - you drag your luggage through the streets, up and down stairs --- it was truly exciting and exhilarating. G adventures has a fan for life. The instructions and assistance was outstanding -- Great job - Steve (AffordableTours.com) was outstanding !
