What to expect

View the magnificent architecture of Guadalajara and the beautiful handicrafts of Tlaquepaque! During your 5-hour sightseeing tour, you’ll stop at important landmarks in Guadalajara’s historical downtown, full of colonial buildings like the main Cathedral and Teatro Degollado (Degollado Theater). Walk through the enormous Mercado Libertad (Liberty Market) before continuing by air-conditioned minivan to nearby Tlaquepaque, where you’ll have time to stroll the cobblestone streets and craft market.

Your guide will pick you up by minivan at your hotel and take you to Guadalajara’s historical downtown to begin your city sightseeing tour. Stop at the Plaza de Armas, home to the Guadalajara’s twin-towered cathedral. One of the city’s most magnificent landmarks, the cathedral boasts a richly decorated interior with gold-leaf pillars, Gothic vaults, and a stained-glass window of the Last Supper.

Head to nearby Liberation Square, which takes up two whole city blocks filled with beautiful colonial buildings. At the Instituto Cultural de Cabañas, where drama, dance, and music is performed, you’ll see another example of Guadalajara's stunning architecture, including a popular museum that houses modernist murals. Admire the neoclassical design of the Degollado Theater before continuing to the Plaza de la Rotonda, located on the north side of the cathedral. Here, your guide will tell you about the Rotonda de los Jaliscienses Ilustres (Rotunda of the Illustrious People of Jalisco), a circular monument of 20 bronze sculptures honoring Jalisco's best-known architects, writers, composers, and scientists.

Afterward, walk with your guide through Mercado Libertad, also known as Mercado San Juan de Dios, one of Mexico’s biggest traditional markets. You’ll see local vendors selling everything from produce, traditional candies, and flowers to rugs, clothing, and leather goods at more than 2,600 stalls.

Then, drive to Tlaquepaque, a small colonial village just 4 miles (7 km) southeast of downtown Guadalajara. Enjoy free time strolling the narrow cobblestone streets where you can admire the beautiful architecture or purchase a traditional meal and delicious drink for lunch. You'll have a chance to walk around one of Tlaquepaque's arts and crafts markets, where you can find Mexican wood carvings, ceramics, pottery, and leather items, before your guide returns you to your hotel in Guadalajara.
