Tours of Mexico
Through The Mayan Heartlands: Mexico City to the Yucatan Peninsula
16 days from £3500 excl. flights*
With its rich legacy of Aztec, Mayan and Spanish Colonial architecture, Mexico is perhaps unsurprisingly home to more UNESCO World Heritage sites than any other country in the Americas. On this epic journey which travels from Mexico City in the Central Highlands through the rainforests of Chiapas to the coastline of the Yucatan, we'll not only have ample opportunities to visit several of these sites (some well-known, others less so) but also to experience the incredible diversity of landscapes, climate and peoples of this fascinating southern half of the country.A world away from the tourist resorts of Acapulco and Cancun lies a Mexico that is all too often unseen and that is richer in traditional culture than many of its smaller Central American neighbours.With more time than on many of our other trips factored in for rest, relaxation and personal exploration, this trip will also serve as a great holiday for those seeking some sun, sea and sand in combination with a highly rewarding travel experience. So come for the best of both worlds! Mexico has it all in abundance.
Mexico's Mayan Trail
16 days from £2499 incl. flights*
Emerald jungles, sapphire blue waters and powdery white sands meet towering ancient temples and charming colonial towns in the ever-enticing country of Mexico. This comprehensive tour turns the spotlight on spectacular Mayan sites such as Chichen Itza, with its ceremonial step pyramids and imposing monuments that reveal much about the brilliance and brutality of the Maya, and it also reveals the legacy of other ancient peoples – the Zapotecs, Mixtecs and Aztecs – the influence of the Spanish settlers and the sheer exhilaration of Mexico City, an urban colossus displaying fascinating evidence of every notable civilisation in Mexican history.
Get beyond the tourist façade of the countries you visit. Focus on the local culture, past and present, and discover the lifeblood of any country – its people. Discovery and culture tours uncover different ways of life, and offer the opportunity to meet and sometimes stay with local people or tribal groups. Our discovery tours explore cultural sites – both ancient and modern – and help you learn about the people and their culture. Visit the remote tribes of Ethiopia’s Rift Valley, live the nomad life in desert camps or meet the local people of the high Andean altiplano in Peru. There’s no better way to get to the true heart of a country than through its people.
