Mexico: Culinary Glimps

7 days/6 nights

Mexico City -Cañada De Cisneros-





Markets, tastings, cooking classes and all about Mexico City’s origins, also in culinary aspects.
This short program can be combined easily with classical routes from Mexico City into southeast (e.g., Puebla-Oaxaca and further down), as well as with the Colonial Region of Mexico.

Day 1: Mexico City

Welcome in airport MEX and transfer to your centrally located hotel (earliest possible check-in hour: 15:00h local Mexico City time). Resting time of day at leisure before your first overnight in Mexico City.

Day 2: Cultures, Historical Center, Market & Templo Mayor (B)

Breakfast in hotel. Today, let us show Mexico City to you, in its origins, in its transformation to contemporary culture, learning about ancient roots and culinary aspects. Visit the Square of 3 Cultures in Tlatelolco, where in prehispanic times were held the market places of all goods, which also were provided to the theocratic quarters of priests, and where nowadays the Aztec ruins lay next to colonial Santiago church, surrounded by the rather modern living complex of Nonoalco- Tlatelolco. Get into Mexico City’s historical center (UNESCO World Heritage – UWH), where you explore the area walking, seeing Zocalo main square with National Palace and Metropolitan Cathedral around, get into a local market and see all the fresh fruit and vegetables and have some tasting of typical Mexican food. Visit also the ruins of Aztec Main Temple which remain from prehispanic Aztec capital Tenochtitlán (Templo Mayor is closed on Mondays / in those Mondays, the view would be from outside only). See also the Fine Arts Palace with its fascinating mural paintings inside, as well as Alameda Central Park and get gimpls into traditional bakeries and Mexican artisan sweet shops. After a day full of city center exploration return to your hotel. There we recommend not to miss a dinner (not included in package price) in the hotel’s rooftop restaurant, which is well known for its exquisite cuisine!

Day 3:Cooking In Xochimilco & Coyoacán Home Of Frida Kahlo (B, L)

Enjoy a tasty lunch on board, before then in afternoon to get into Coyoacán colonial quarter, where you will visit also the Blue House, which is the Museum Frida Kahlo, which houses a charming exhibition about the famous artist’s life, her art and connected oeuvre to her and her husband Diego Rivera.

Day 4:Anthropology Museum & Tenayuca – Cañada De Cisneros (B)

In route then out of Mexico City, visit the small archaeological sites of Tenayuca and Sta. Cecilia, where it can be seen, how the temple structures of Aztec domain in central Mexico Valley looked like on the arrival of the Spaniards. In the afternoon, reach your overnight place in the countryside outskirts of Mexico City, where the landlady welcomes you in her charming rural mansion to fully relax in nature and silence.

Dear Anna, Alexandra, Iona and the rest of the team at Ada Tours
Feed-back from a happy, satisfied customer!
A very big thank you for your very efficient services, Hospitality and most importantly your patience throughout the tour of my client. Dr. Chrysantha Mendis is very happy with the entire Tour. You did a fantastic job by organizing a detailed tour package covering 7 countries, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Chile, Peru, Argentina, and Brazil. Dr. Mendis has enjoyed all the countries though he could not do a few tours in Peru which is understandable due to political unrest. We will recommend Ada Tours to all our clients in Sri Lanka and will start promoting your tours in our website.
Best wishes and kind regards,

Hi Anna, thank you for the update on the glasses. I’ll wait and see what happens! Alan and I are now back in the UK. We loved our trip to the Pantanal and Bonito. Our guide, Alessandra was brilliant with lots of knowledge and very considerate and helpful. The only hitch we had was on our flight back to Rio because the second leg of the trip was cancelled and we were rescheduled to a later plane and our luggage was mislaid. Fortunately it arrived in Rio a day later, before we flew home. Thank you for arranging the trip.
Best wishes Carol
REVIEW №5- Stacey Robertson
Hello Anna and Natalia,
Thank you for all your help with our trip! I know our group was difficult, and I appreciate your patience with us. We loved the tours, the horseback ride, and the absolutely beautiful lunch at the vineyard. Our guides and drivers were fantastic, especially Luis. And the hotels were perfectly located. It was such a convenience to be centrally located in both Lisbon and Madeira.
I hope you enjoy a wonderful holiday and I look forward to working with you in the new year!

REVIEW №9- Matt, Adventurebug Worldwide Ltd.
Everything went really well. As always we had to make some adjustments and the local guide and team on the ground were very responsive and took action professionally. I have no complaints about this :)
The clients were very pleased with the tour and all arrangements.
Changing the few meals at the end on Isabela was not an issue and the local team did a good job organizing this for me.

Many thanks again Ana!
