  • Our tour guide was Gabriel and he was fantastic! He kept a group of 40 together and engaged. His passion and knowledge was incredible. Highly recommend the early tour because it is not hot at the pyramid yet and way less crowded. Ask for Gabriel!

  • Absolutely a MUST. It was hard to get up early, but once over and done...I would ONLY recommend the morning tour. You arrive at the site around 9am...and this was perfect temperatures for 3 hours on the site. By the time we left, it was so HOT, that I could not imagine starting the exploration on the site for 3 hours in afternoon heat. We left the site to a market and restaurant. The market of course wants you to purchase, but not necessary...but the information on the merchandise and process was interesting. Then we had an incredible tequila tasting...which was fun...the restaurant they took us to, was delightful and delicious food along with entertainment.

    This trip was one of my favorites...I HIGHLY recommend it.

  • This was an excellent tour, one we all highly recommend. We arrived at the pyramids early, before the crowds appeared. Our guide, Leonardo, was very knowledgeable and provided a bilingual Spanish/English explanation of Meso America, covering civilizations, culture, and history. We got to climb the Pyramid of the Sun, Pyramid of the Moon, and pyramid of the plumed serpent, Quetzquotyl. The tour included rest stops, tequila tasting, and lunch at a good restaurant. The bus was luxurious and driver, José Luis, did a great job navigating traffic.

  • I would recommend this early morning tour. The guides were great, the bus was in in very good condition and our group was one of the first that got to Teotihuacan in the morning. So we were able to explore the complex before the crowds arrived.

  • A highlight of our trip! Such an amazing way to see the pyramids and meet fellow traveller. It's worth the money... and early wake up!

  • This was a great tour. There weren't too many people at the pyramids early in the morning. The tour guide was very informative, although he didn't walk up the tallest pyramid or the last pyramid with us. He gave us some time to walk up and come down the pyramids by ourselves.

  • Buena experiencia, personal agradable y excelente llegar temprano a las pirámides. muy recomendado

  • I loved this tour.

  • Recommend everyone the Teotihuacan tour, except with the Amigo tour. Buss was completely full , very hot and both tour guides were very rude. O raised my hand to ask him to turn on the air and he simply ignored me and all peaple that we’re trying to get his attention. Amigo tour I don’t recommend

  • The tour was excellent with Gabriel as our guide. He is so knowledgeable and personable he made the trip for us. Yes- you do stop at a coffee spot on the way there and finish at a lunch spot of their choice to shop and eat but that did not take away from the overall wonderful, educational day.
