    If you're a history or archaeology buff, a family with precocious or curious kids, or someone who wants to appreciate the magnificence of Teotihuacan through the eyes of someone who knows the site down to the pebbles, this is your tour. David is a fantastic guide with infectious passion, and as an archaeology student he was able to share photos and information about excavations in areas too delicate or dangerous for tourists. The more you learn about Teotihuacan, the more incredible it becomes - and you will learn a LOT on this tour!

    David was a really great expert on the civilization of Teotihuacan, despite the amount of mystery that archeologists still haven't figured out. He was able to tell us both about the well-established theories, and about the current controversies in the field, with competing interpretations of what some of these structures might have been used for. He was also able to arrange to pick us up in Mexico City for an additional fee, which was very convenient.

    This was an incredible experience! I had been to Teotihuacan before a few years ago and self toured, and knew I wanted a more informative experience this time around. Jorge did not disappoint! His expertise are just amazing - like he's literally been a part of excavations in tunnels at the site. If you're a history nerd like me, this is definitely the right way to tour. You will get so much more than any regular guide could offer! His knowledge is so extensive and he's so clearly passionate about these ruins and the people behind them.

    David was the best guide for seeing and understanding this amazing site in Mexico. He has a degree in archaeology and brings not only his academic interpretation to this place but an enthusiasm and perspective that is infectious! He brings additional material In his own “guidebook” to share with you. He is respectful, kind and interested in making your trip a special one. He is able to Impart his knowledge in a clear and articulate way; his English is very good. You could not ask for a better person to experience Teotihuacan with and through than this amazing Mexican guide who is proud and passionate and loves so much what he does.

    I have traveled to many historical sites and ruins around the world and have had great guides. However, Jorge Archer is without doubt the best tour guide I have ever had anywhere. He is a PhD Anthropologist who has studied Teotihuacan for years and has participated in digs at the site. I thought I knew something about pre-Hispanic civilizations but was happily disabused of some of my preconceived notions by his encyclopedic knowledge of every aspect of Teotihuacan and other mesoamerican cultures. He uses a binder with drawings and photos of relevant carvings and renderings of the city, plus an iPad with incredible photos to supplement his really fascinating and learned talk. It is unusual to find someone who loves his work so much. Book him while you can, because he mentioned he may be moving to a permanent research position with the Mexican Institute of Anthropology and History in another city soon.

    Wir hatten wirklich ein wahnsinnig gute Führung über das gesamte Gelände. Jorge hat ein unglaublichen Wissensschatz bezüglich Teotihuacan, da er selber an den Ausgrabungen beteiligt ist. Das Englisch war exzellent und die Tour wird an das Interesse angepasst. Wir hatten auf jeden Fall eine großartige Zeit und hatten nicht die gleiche Erfahrung gemacht, hätte Jorge uns nicht durch das Gelände begleitet. Vielen Dank nochmal!

    Jorge is a real academic archeologist and anthropologist who knows his stuff. I'm also a historian at a UK university and I was impressed by his encyclopaedic knowledge of the region, the site itself, the civilisations, the state of understanding of what is known about Teotihuacan, and much more. 100% go with Jorge and you will not be disappointed. He exudes real passion about the pyramids and the people who built them and worshiped them. There are so many tour guides who provide very basic knowledge of the site and charge the same or more. We had the best experience.

    Jorge provided a fantastic tour. His knowledge and expertise are exceptional. He has worked for 20 years as an anthropologist and has personally excavated parts of Teotihuacan. We appreciated his behind-the-scenes information and the latest developments in understanding the city. Teotihuacan itself is staggering.

    Jorge Archer gave us really interesting insight into the pre-Aztec world. He carries with him a book he put together (from his work at the site) that illustrated much of what this massive city looked like before it fell into ruin. He's a physical anthropologist, not an archeologist, so if that's important to you, take note. He was SUPER helpful in arranging private transportation for us. He also took us off site to a "apartment complex" where people lived in that time and showed us so many cool artifacts. Then we returned to the pyramids, on the far end, where two members of our family climbed up to see more. By that time, though, my daughter and I were exhausted, so we didn't make the climb. So I'd recommend asking him to do ALL of the pyramid city first, then the off-site place, which is flat.

    Highly recommend this tour as it gives you the history and explains the symbolism of the archeological site. Much better than just going on your own and not being able to understand what you’re looking at. Our guide Jorge was excellent and knowledgeable!
