Learn about their innovations in architecture, cloves and the use of stucco and admire the site. Then, visit the Convent of Tepotzotlan, from the Jesuits Order.

This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Tula Toltec Archaeological Ruins, Tula de Allende Municipality, Central Mexico and Gulf Coast
The city was founded by Ce Ácatl Topiltzin Quetzalcóatl, sovereign who gave great prosperity to the region, which was cut short due to the confrontation between followers of the god Quetzalcoatl and Tezcatlipoca, gods tremendously opposed in Aztec mythology.
Duration: 2 hours
Stop At: Museo Nacional del Virreinato, Tepotzotlan, Central Mexico and Gulf Coast
The Society of Jesus came to Tepotzotlán in 1580 to be employed in the work with the Indians and founded a residence where the parents learned Otomi, Nahuatl and Mazahua. He also established the Seminary of San Martin for the education of the children of the principal Indians. Finally, he established the House of Probation so that young people who wished to enter the Society could attend the novitiate. The school was for the exclusive use of the Jesuits, while the hostelry and the temple were public spaces and the Seminary of San Martin was inhabited only by indigenous people. The property was built on a natural promontory that was used to build three levels, currently identified as access plant, ground floor and upper floor.
Duration: 2 hours

An outstanding day tour of the Tula site and the Iglesias de San Francisco at Tepotzotlan. Our guide and driver were both superb - courteous, knowledgeable and professional. I recommend this tour without reservation.
Both david and louis of Mexico freelance tour are very professional. They made our tour very pleasant and enjoyable. They are both very knowledgeable, attentive to details and impressed us as very caring and helpful! It is voted by our group of four friends as the most enjoyable tour among the five tours that we booked in Mexico City! The sites that we visited amazed us!
Carlos and Anna - fantastic people. Great tour, Great experience, Great day!
A fabulous private tour with a knowledgeable and friendly guide The Aztec and pre-Aztec ruins are fascinating. The cathedral at Tepotzotlan is beautiful in its ornateness even though the religious aspect did not interest me. Still well worth the visit.
Have always wanted to see these sites but there are no large, group tours. Decided to splurge on a private car. A little pricey but well worth it! Our guide Carlos and driver Anna were exceptional. Carlos extremely knowledgeable of archaeology, history, and culture. Anna the best and most patient driver I have ever experienced! I kept telling my husband to take lessons from her! These two sites are awesome and should not be missed! This tour takes all day so be prepared to return late. Water provided, take a hat!
Out driver Louis was very professional, had a very nice vehicle and knew best routing. Our Guide David Suverza was very knowledgeable, easy to understans, responsive and adaptable to our needs and tailored our tour to our desired experience. Tula is a different Temple experience from other Temples and is well worth the drive to it. Additionally David added info and pointed out points of interest on the way. Would recommend this tour and Guides to all.
We had an awesome time visiting the Toltec ruins at Tula and the Museum of the Viceroyalty in Tepotzotlan. The Toltecs were the successors to the Teotihuacan culture, and the predecessors to the Aztecs. If you are into Mesoamerican history, Tula is a must-visit location. If you are interested in the history of the colonial period, Tepotzotlan is a must. The Jesuit college/monastery, now the Museum of the Viceroyalty has an amazing collection and the Baroque church is stunning. You have a choice of places to eat and we selected Los Virreyes and we were not disappointed. The tourista menu has some great choices and includes dessert and fantastic café del olla. Our driver, Luis was safe and courteous. Our guide was Alejandra and she was very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this trip.
The tour was great! Both sites are highly recommended to visit. Our tour guide David was the great, with outstanding knowledge in Mexican history and culture. Everything was in time. David was ready to customize the tour according to our interests. He even missed his lunch helping us with sightseeing :. We will definitely book other tours with David.
This tour was absolutely incredible! Our guide David was extremely knowledgeable and passionate of Mexico's history. We will definitely book future tours with David on our next trip.
Amazing trip!!! David picked me up on time, was polite, professional, and a wealth of knowledge about Mexico City as well as the history of the area!!! His true passion for the history made for an amazing experience, he had answers for every question imaginable, great driver to!!! Highly recommend!!
This tour started out on point and above expectations from the minute we exited our hotel. We were greeted immediately by David, our tour guide and introduced to Vicky, our driver. Both were warm and friendly and made our experience wonderful from start to finish! David is exceptionally knowledgeable! His passion for the history of the details within this tour shows throughout and makes the experience that much better. We started the drive to Tula and were taught facts and history of the places we passed. Vicky is a wonderful driver. If you have ever taken a cab in Mexico City, you might have experienced some craziness! NOT with Vicky. Not once even in the craziest parts did I ever feel anything but relaxed. I wish she gave lessons... I'd have my husband take one!! Lol! Once we arrived, David gives another perfect presentation of the facts and history. We then set off to Tepotzotlan, where again David delivered a presentation that was informative and easily understood. THESE TWO SITE ARE A MUST SEE! After, we enjoyed a delicious lunch and Vicky joined us. It was like having lunch with family or dear friends. So, in the end, I recommend this tour. And I HIGHLY recommend booking it with David and Vicky!
Interesting place, my tour guide Liliana was amazing. Highly recommended!
