  • Great tour, so glad that it was in the morning. When we arrived it was just starting to get busy, we could only see a few people climbing up the pyramid, and the main avenue was pretty much empty. By the time we had walked to the end the main avenue was packed with people, and the main pyramid was really busy with people.

    The talk from the guide was interesting and informative. I would recommend to anyone visiting Mexico City to come out here.

    The stop for lunch was also good, drank lots of Mezcal shots, the food was a bit expensive though.

  • Excellent tour. Knowledgeable, friendly guide. The lunch was quite good as well. Highly recommend!

  • We had a great time on this tour. Learned a lot and saw some amazing history. Our guide Roberto i'm pretty sure that's his name lol was a good tour guide.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • The tour was excellent! Leonardo, our tour guide, was extremely helpful and has an ease about him. He shared information both in english and in spanish. This is probably one of the most magical places I've visited and I would recommend this tour to all my friends. High Five!

  • Very nice visit to a heritage site, and guide was very informative. Lots of history beyond the structure of the pyramids themselves.
    Going early in the morning is a good idea, as advertised. Pick up and the bus worked well.

    The stop at a market after the pyramids was a mixed experience. On the one hand the owners of the market
    took some time to demonstrate weaving and how they strip fibres from the plants to do this. And they gave us several
    samples of tequila. All of this was very nice and I would have been happy if the trip had ended that way. However
    we had a shopping period where we were left to walk through the market and I was hounded to buy something.

    The bus was not leaving, so I had the feeling I was a bit trapped. I can't say that I blame the merchants at the
    market, after all they gave us some tequila samples. But it was not pleasant.

  • Great day. Maybe would improve on early morning meeting point.

  • Things that were great about this tour:
    Excellent, knowledgable tour guide
    Early arrival to the site meant we had a nearly private climb up the top of our first pyramid
    Great transportation

    Things that weren't great:
    End of the tour - the agave/obsidian lesson and tequilla/pulque tasting felt a little commercialized to me, and at the end we were led into a gift shop. We were told to meet after the gift shop at 1 and since I had no interest in shopping, I went for a walk and returned precisely at 1, and then waited outside of the giftshop for more than 15 minutes only to learn that the rest of the group had been sent to the restaurant.
    Restaurant was a mediocre buffet.

    Regardless of the weak points at the end of the tour, I'd recommend this as a nice option to explore Teotihuacan.

  • This trip was amazing!! The tour guides were extremely well-informed and engaging. The bus was safe and comfortable. There is a stop at a gas station to pick up breakfast, which made getting up early to start the tour really convenient. Lunch is not included but is available after a fun side trip learning about the local products of the region - cloth, pulque and obsidian. And obviously, Teotihuacan is incredible and very much worth a visit when traveling to Mexico City!

  • One of the most exciting trips during our visit to Mexico City. Our Private Archeologist named Gabriel was very informative and knowledgeable. I had been on this trip 3 years ago and had learned so much more. I had no idea what we believed the Aztecs had built these pyramids and to find out that it was built by an unknown well advanced civilization 200 years prior to the arrival of the Aztecs. Who would have thought. So I believe its very important to have a private Archeologist guide with knowledge of the city guide your TOUR. GREAT JOB GABRIEL!!!!!!
