After pickup from your Mexico City hotel by an English-speaking guide, head to the Cholula archaeological zone. There, you have plenty of time to explore the massive Great Pyramid. Learn about the history of the pre-Hispanic structure and see the Church of Our Lady of the Remedies, which was constructed atop the pyramid after the conquest of Hernan Cortes.
In Puebla, get an introduction to this historic city’s UNESCO-recognized colonial center with a visit to the ornate 16th-century Church of Santo Domingo. The church’s Chapel of Rosary baroque interior is considered a wonder of the art world.
Next, head to a former convent that’s now home the Museum of Religion Art, followed by a tour of workshops that make onyx and Talavera ceramics. At the end of the day, enjoy drop-off back at your hotel.
