The heart of Mexico – Mexico City - has it all.Â From the ancient past as the Aztec metropolis of Tenochitlan; through Spanish colonial reign and into the ultra-modern thriving capital it is today. We will view all these aspects and more. This is Joâ€™s favorite international capital – it seems to have something of everything.Â Go…With Jo! has included a side trip to Taxco and one night in San Miguel de Allende at our customers request.Â The tour is programed so that those who wish may attend the Ballet Folklorico.Â Ask your guide to help you obtain tickets.
