Know More about this tour

Meet your guide in central Mexico City and take public transportation to the town of San Martin de las Piramides to embark on a visit to the amazing pyramids of Teotihuacan. The UNESCO World Heritage site includes a museum where you can learn about the artifacts found in the area and see a reconstruction of ancient Teotihuacan's local houses.

Follow your guide to the impressive Moon Pyramid to learn the history and meaning behind this prime example of ancient Latin American architecture. Take a walk through the Calzada de los Muertos (Pass of the Dead) to reach the Pyramid of the Sun, the area's tallest and most spectacular monument, rising 206 feet (63 meters). You can enjoy the tranquility of this amazing site as you climb the pyramid and, once you reach the top, you'll understand why the Aztecs called this 'the place where men become gods.'

After exploring the pyramids, visit the local sights and step inside a local home to meet a family who produces one of the region's best pulque, the alcoholic beverage sacred to the Aztecs. The process, history and significance of this ancient drink becomes clear as you listen to your guide's expert commentary.

Leave the pulqueria and visit a cactus factory where candies and creams are produced from various varieties of cacti. After you sample the range of products, you'll have the opportunity to purchase souvenirs.

Continue your stroll through the town and visit a local family and enjoy cultural traditions, conversation and food as you share dinner in a local Mexican home.

In the evening, experience how locals travel around when you jump on public transportation with your guide back to Mexico City! Observe everyday life in Mexico City at the often busy and crowded stations.

  • Nathan was an excellent tour guide. Friendly, well informed, patient and fun to be with. Family dinner was excellent. Visited a home where we were given a tutorial on tequila and obsidian. Good value. Highly recommend. One comment: why meet at Museum of Modern Design and then walk to Bellas Artes to catch MetroBus?

  • We scheduled a last minute tour and the booking manager at Viator was able to find us this really fun tour. Our guide, Rodrigo, was very, energetic and spoke English well. A great time spent for half a day in Mexico and well worth the price point.

  • I'm so late to the party but I really wanted to review the tour I took back in February. I have wanted to go see the pyramids at Teotihuacan for as long as I could remember. I found this tour and decided to book it and I am so infinitely happy I did. Our tour guide I think it was Leon, guy in his mid/late 20's, fedora and glasses was so awesome and knowledgeable about not only CDMX and the history but Teotihuacan as well. Our group was small, our tour guide and myself and friend and 2 others.
    We walked up both pyramids and when we got to the top of Sol, we said a little prayer to the sun god. It was such an emotional moment that brought me to tears.
    After the pyramids, we walked into San Francisco de Los Piramides and visited a local obsidian worker. At his home, we also had a small tasting of pulque and mescal. We then went to the neighboring town of San Marcos to visit a distillery and then head to a local home for dinner.
    Our home-cooked meal of chicken and nopales was absolutely divine as was the conversation we all had over food and drinks. Once dinner was done, we headed around the corner to get the bus back to CDMX.

    I would do this tour every single day for the rest of my life if I could. The next time I go back to CDMX, I will 100 take this tour again.

  • The tour was fantastic and the site is a wonder. The amount of historical and contextual information related to it makes it essential to have a knowledgeably guide to be able to truly appreciate the visit. Our guide Rodrigo was awesome -- friendly, outgoing, and really enthusiastic about the subject matter. He clearly loved the history, science, and conjecture about Teotihuacan and keeps up-to-date with theories and findings that are ongoing at this mysterious and ancient place. He brought our tour group together wonderfully and was able to give us an answer and context to every obscure question our inquisitive minds could dream up. He is absolutely top notch.

    On top of it all, our group had a fantastic time together which was capped off by a delicious meal at local's house. As mentioned in other comments -- not actually eating WITH the family, but clearly a lovingly cooked meal in a cozy setting. Would recommend highly to anyone interested in really learning a lot and having an informative and hands-on small group experience.

  • This trip was worth every penny. Cesar was our tour guide and made every moment safe, informative and special. I was scared to climb the pyramids and he held my hand. That goes above and beyond. I would give it 10 stars if I could. Than you Cesar!

  • Excellent tour. Guides were terrific!

  • excellent!

  • Great true life experience for my teenage son and myself. The Guide was most educated and most friendly. I have visited many parts or the world and truly this was a unique experience. THANK YOU

  • Leon was a great guide! Bring some cash, the stops where you get to meet local artisans will definitely have souvenirs you will want.

  • This trip with Urban Advantures was wonderful! Our tour guide, Rodrigo, is knowledgeable about Mexico City and the Teotihuacan Pyramids. It's cool that we had a chance to take the local transportation which I didn't dare as I was travelling alone and don't speak Spanish to go to Teotihuacan. The dinner was delicious too, much nicer than some restaurants. :
