  • We spent an incredible day with Veronica our tour guide and Louis our driver. Both of them were incredible professionals and provided us with an in depth and memorable experience. As a student of architecture, I expected to enjoy the Guadalupe Shrine, but I wasn't prepared for how impressive this complex of buildings is... Veronica brought them alive with a detailed history of both the historic and modern churches. We then ventured out further to the Teotihuacan pyramids... a great way to spend an afternoon. The scale of this complex of pyramids and surrounding buildings is astonishing. Be prepared for a steep climb up to the top of the Sun Pyramid... it's well worth it! Expect to have a great time with Veronica and Louis!

  • We had a wonderful time with Veronica out tour guide and Louis our Driver. Both were professionals and took great care of us from the minute they picked us up until they dropped us off at our hotel. As a student of architecture, I expected to be impressed by the Shrine of Guadalupe complex, but I wasn't prepared for the scale and scope of all the wonderful buildings. Veronica brought them alive with history and context of both the modern and historic buildings. When we saw more areas we wanted to explore, she gladly showed us around and offered a detailed history of the surrounding buildings. We then ventured out for an afternoon at Teotihuacan. The scale of this collection of pyramids and homes is astounding. Be prepared for a long hike up the Pyramid of the Sun... well worth it for the views. Veronica told us all about the history of the local people, their rituals and their relationship with modern Mexico. This is a great tour and well worth the investment in having a private tour guide.

  • Our tour guide Carlos Calderon has given us a lot of information of the City, Teotihuacan and Guadalupe Shrine, he is very good and highly recommended. Anna or we call her Vicky Rivera is a very welcoming driver, very nice and always smiling as well as Carlos. We thank you Lord for our safe trip in Mexico City.

  • Our tour guide David did a great job with showing us the highlights of both Teotihuacan and Guadalupe Shrine. The site is exceptional to see and David did a really great job explaining and educating us on the history of the Teotihuacan people. The Guadalupe Shrine is also exceptional. We were able to see how the story of Guadalupe came to be and how she became a symbol for the Catholic religion.
    The tour guides were highly knowledgeable and professional.

  • Very knowledgable guide and good driver. Flexible schedule which was great and learned a ton about the ruins, the basilica, and Mexico in general.

  • Teotihuacan was awesome no doubt, tour itself can be a lot better. Tour guide was not very good at explaining, probably partly a language issue, can only understand about 50 of it. Tour flow was poorly designed. We started with Guadalupe shrine, then the craft center, then Teotihuacan, by the time we got to Teotihuacan, it was hot and crowded, and we didn't get to eat lunch till 2ish, way too late, we were starving. Would have been better to head straight to Teotihuacan first, then have lunch, then all the other stops.

  • Such a great experience! Veronica was our tour guide and she was amazing! We loved her. We are so happy that we chose to do this as a private tour it was just my boyfriend and I, so we were able to stay at each location as long as we needed and to concentrate on the things that interested us the most. She took pictures for us, advised on the best route to take up the pyramid and was knowledgeable and friendly the entire day. The one thing to note, which was not the tour company's fault but Viator's is that the day was longer than is listed on the site. It says aprox. 6 hours but it was more like 10-11 hours including travel and wait times. Don't get me wrong, it is totally worth spending the day doing this! We learned so much and we CLIMBED A PYRAMID! But we did have to move some plans around when we realized we wouldn't be back as early as we thought we would. Recommended tour for sure!

  • This was an exceptionally good tour. I took the two-person private tour with my sister, and it was a great way for us to learn about all three locations on the tour -- Tlatelolco, Teotihuacan, and Guadalupe. Our guide, Carlos, was very knowledgeable about the history and culture, both prehispanic and colonial, and he provided fascinating details about how people lived, their religious beliefs, and how they built and decorated their homes and temples. His English is excellent, and he has a whimsical and engaging way of sharing the history that makes learning fun. Both he and the driver, Ana, were very flexible in accommodating us, especially when we spent longer in the shop than we expected. The trip includes a brief introduction to the maguey plant and the art of obsidian sculpture, plus an excellent lunch at a nearby restaurant. If you want a truly informative and personalized tour, skip the big-bus tours and sign up for one of these private tours through Viator. It's well worth the extra cost.

  • This was our kind of tour we recommend it. Of course we did the usual highlights of Teotihuacan like all the other tourists, but David, our guide, reads the Anthropology Journal, loves history, and loves sharing. Hes got the latest information at the ready. We went to other important stops in the historical progression.

    Logistics for the tour were outstanding we had Luis, a professional driver. We were picked up at our Airbnb right on schedule. At the sights we were let off at the entrance, and when we finished, Luis appeared with the car.

    When we got home, Luis sent Davids pictures of us at the pyramids. Take this tour.

  • This tour was fantastic! Our guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about history. Both our guide and our driver were super nice and friendly. Having a guide made all the difference in terms of learning and understanding. Teotihuacan was amazing. I have never seen or experienced anything like it! Highly, highly recommended!!
