Doing what: Xochimilco and National University of Mexico
This was an excellent way to see many of Mexico City's sites that are not centrally located downtown. The guide, Eduardo, was great and took us by Mexico City's World Trade Center, to the bull fighting ring, to the University of Mexico to view the exterior of the library, by the Azteca Stadium, to the Coyoacan neighborhood, and finally to Xochimilco where we took a boat along the canal. We enjoyed beer and marriachi music during the boat ride.

Doing what: Teotihuacan Pyramids and Shrine of Guadalupe
very good tour!
Javier was great. Very friendly, knowledgeable and flexible. We had a great time!
Hector, the guide, was extremely knowledgable and prepared us well for each part of the day. He was very skilled communicating in both English and Spanish and made both languages feel a part of the tour. Teotihuacan is amazing and a highlight of our stay in Mexico City.
A must see, Nice visit
The time given to be at the Pyramids was just right to climb the sun pyramid but not enough to climb both or see the rest of the site. The first stop to the pulque production area should be best coupled with the lunch time. It is hard to swallow pulque and tequila and then spend 2 hours in the sun climbing the pyramids. After the climbing, we return to the same site of the pulque demonstration for lunch. The guide was pleasant and spoke in both english and spanish but felt a bit rushed, we were picked up late at around 9:15am and we were the second ones to board and were dropped off at around 5:30pm
The trip to Teotihuacan, and the Shrine of Guadalupe was really good. I booked this trip before I arrived in Mexico city via the internet. The company contacted me at my hotel and reconfirmed. Everything has handled very well by the tour company.
Sergio was very informative and great at explaining everything in English and Spanish. Lunch was quite late, 4pm make sure you eat a decent breakfast! However the tour itself is definitely worth doing if you have a whole day free!
Great tour. Consider single language tour instead because other tourists speak over tour guide when tour guide is not speaking their language.
We were told to be ready at 8:30 and were not picked up until 9:30. 1/3 of the tour group spoke English and did not receive a full explanation from the guide because he claimed it was too much to do. We hired our own guide at the Anthropology museum and dropped out of the tour. Mexico City is very impressive and we appreciated being taken to several of the most historic spots, but for the price, Viator has other all day excursions for the same price so this one is not a value.
Driver spent a lot of time circling - seemed to be running errands. On a 6 hour tour, he didn't want to stop for lunch (we had 3 kids with us...) Only spent an hour in the Museum (although that hour was a good tour.)
Amazing places to visit and the tour guide was very friendly and informative - would definitely recommend as a must see. If you're not fussed on the quality of knick knacks to buy as gifts or to keep for yourself just wait to you meet the sellers at the locations and haggle things down to less than half of their original offers, the shop you get taken to first is very expensive.
The trip was really good. Excellent service from staffs.
A long day but well worthwhile. Our guide was superb and very knowledgable and had a fantastic sense of humour. Well organised and lots of fun.
Sundays very busy at Teotihuacan due to Mexican's getting free entry.
