"Mexico is Central America at its most spellbinding, with an ever-changing landscape that veers from arid desert to lush rainforest, from the madness of Mexico City to the luxury resorts of the Riviera Maya."

Escorted Tours and Holidays in Mexico

Want to experience Mexico on an unforgettable touring holiday? Then you’re in the right place. From active breaks, adventure holidays and scenic tours to river cruises, cultural escapes and foodie tours, our featured tour operators offer an incredible selection of guided tours to suit every type of traveller and their budget.

Located in the southern portion of North America, Mexico is a country thriving with history and unique culture, as well as spellbinding beauty and energy. It’s a truly fascinating destination with an ever-changing landscape that veers from arid desert and lush rainforest to peaceful towns and fast-paced cities, which means there are many different exciting areas of Mexico to discover and explore. Not only that, but Mexico is a rewarding holiday and it offers something that appeals to everyone, so it isn’t difficult to find a tour itinerary to match your needs.

Chichen Itza is perhaps Mexico’s largest and most famous Mayan site, occupying an area of 4 square miles and easily accessible from most towns and cities. As it’s such an important tourist attraction where new discoveries are still being unearthed, you’ll want to make sure you include a visit to this Mayan city on your escorted tour holiday. Teotihuacan is also a large and very important archaeological site, just outside of Mexico City and famous for its two huge pyramids – the Pyramid of the Sun and Pyramid of the Moon.

Mexico City is, no doubt, one of the greatest cities on earth, so it would foolish not to spend some time here during your touring holiday. You can explore exotic markets, purchase wonderful pieces of art, and visit iconic sites like the Metropolitan Cathedral, which sits atop the former Aztec precinct and is the largest cathedral on the continent. Boasting hidden attractions, unusual sights, amazing events and festivals, thousands of restaurants and the second-highest number of museums in the world, Mexico City offers you everything you could need for an exciting day trip, and more!

The attractive and arty city of Oaxaca is also well worth a visit because it’s jam-packed with street markets, cobblestoned pathways, street art and some of the most beautiful churches you’ll ever see. It’s a calm area with spectacular regional cuisine and colourful colonial buildings, making it perfect if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of Mexico City. But if you want to really chill out when on your escorted tour holiday, head to the beaches of the Riviera Maya where you’ll find Playa del Carmen’s beautiful white sandy beach and some of Mexico’s most luxurious resorts.  

If you time your escorted tour holiday right, you can be in Mexico when the Day of the Dead celebrations are taking place. The Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday that’s celebrated throughout the country, from the 31st of October to the 2nd of November each year. Although it sounds gloomy, it’s actually a colourful occasion when Mexicans remember the lives of their deceased friends and family members with big public events and by gathering at cemeteries, decorating graves and throwing more intimate celebrations at home. It’s all about honouring those who have passed on, with masks, costumes, face paint and handmade sugar skulls all iconic parts of this unusual national holiday in Mexico.

Another must-see is the Sea of Cortez, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most diverse seas on the planet, home to whales, dolphins and hundreds of species of fish. Some prefer to call it ‘the world’s aquarium,’ and it will certainly leave you speechless if you love marine life. Alternatively, pick an escorted tour holiday that lets you go to the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, the world’s second-largest barrier reef and a magnificent tapestry of marine life, coral reefs and mangrove forests.
