Mexico – Tours

Tours in Mexico

With its steamy jungles, vast ancient pyramids, mythical heritage, and fiery cuisine, Mexico will inspire your inner spirit of adventure. But if you want nothing more than to relax and forget your troubles to the sound of gentle waves and the hushed rustle of palm trees swaying in the breeze, you’re also in luck. Mexico offers the best of both worlds, so why not combine them. 

A Journey through Mexico will take you on just that, from the loud chaotic scenes of Mexico City with its young, vibrant energy, and its burgeoning culinary scene, to the awe-inspiring pyramid complex around an hour’s drive from the modern-day capital. Teotihuacan was once Mesoamerica’s grandest city, and its ruins attest to that. The journey continues to take you deep into the jungles of the Yucatan Peninsula, the location of the iconic Chichen Itza ruins, before winding down on the beaches of Cancun and beyond. 

One for the foodies and lovers of culture, take the time to linger in the capital city on our A Taste of Mexico City tour. You’ll spend five days getting to know the city on an intimate basis, and what better way to do so than through its cuisine? Sample the local dishes in their purest form straight from the street, where the spicy aromas emanating from vendors’ carts forewarn the heat their dishes pack. Your dining experience will also be elevated to new heights, quite literally, at the only rotating restaurant in the city with 360° views. And for a digestif, take in the cultural delights at some of the best galleries and museums in the city.

A Taste of Mexico City

Because Mexico is such a large country, the weather does vary a little, but generally the best time to visit is between December and April when there is virtually no rain. December to February are the coolest months, and the wet season lasts from May through to October.

Generally speaking, it’s not a good idea to drink the tap water in Mexico. Try to avoid drinks with ice in them, as well, and any fruits, vegetables or salads that have been washed in tap water. Stick to bottled water, and don’t forget that includes brushing your teeth.

Insect repellent is a must, as are comfortable shoes for walking around tourist sites, breathable clothes for when it’s hot and humid, and warm layers if you’re planning to head up into the highlands.

Thoughts of Mexico conjure up images of brightly coloured, vibrant cities, thick green jungles concealing ancient wonders, spicy food that will set your mouth on fire, and white sandy beaches leading down to crystal clear seas. Prepare for Mexico to live up to all your greatest expectations.
