    The trip out to visit the site was well worth it. Informative guide and Interesting ethnography if somewhat less than its spectacular relatives in Mexico City. Great lunch at el rancho after the tour

    Our anthropologist guide, Alberto Aveleyra, provided an excellent tour to the site. He provided many facts and history about Canada de la Virgen pyramid site and also facts about San Miguel and the countryside on the trip to the Site. The tour was enjoyable and very worth our time and money. He not only has great knowledge but it is apparent that he really enjoys his work. I highly recommend this tour.

    Alberto was a fantastic guide, very passionate about his subject. The tour was very comprehensive, the pyramid site gorgeous. The walk and the steps up to the pyramid were a lot easier than I thought they would be. So fascinating.
