Mexico City, Oaxaca

This private tour is perfect for travelers wanting to experience the extraordinary cultural breadth of Mexico City—from ancient ruins to colonial style and modern architecture—as well as the beauty and traditional arts of colonial Oaxaca.

Begin in Mexico City, the vibrant, sophisticated capital of Mexico. During touring with your expert guide and private driver, visit the outstanding Museum of Anthropology to learn about the pre-Hispanic civilizations that thrived in the region. Then, experience ancient sites such as the Templo Mayor in the historic center of Mexico City and the pyramids of Teotihuacan on the outskirts of town. Tour the city’s vast repository of significant 20th-century art and architecture, such as Casa Luis Barragan, the Frida Kahlo Museum, the House/Studio of Diego Rivera, and murals by Rivera, Orozco and Siqueiros. Take a private cruise through the floating gardens at Xochimilco, a local tradition. Explore neighborhoods known for cutting-edge art galleries, beautiful historic homes, colorful markets and excellent restaurants. One night, enjoy a performance of the Ballet Folklorico.

Next, fly to Oaxaca, one of Mexico’s best destinations for traditional art and cuisine. With your private guide, tour the plazas and back streets of the colonial center, and visit Oaxaca’s best folk art shops and food markets. During a private excursion in the surrounding valleys, visit local Indian markets and craft villages, explore Zapotec and Mixtec ruins, and meet highly regarded local artisans specializing in black pottery, woodcarvings, textiles and more. Also in Oaxaca, sample local specialties such as chocolate and cheese, learn how to make mole sauces, or opt to visit a mescal distillery.
