Very good tour. Excellent, knowledgeable guide, thanks Leonardo. Learned lots of new information about the site. Highly recommended! Was great to be on the site before the crowds. The lunch stop was a good, tasty choice. Next time we plan to take the hot air balloon tour early in the day.

A great guide with great information got us there early before all the big groups arrived!

An early morning start but it was the best way to go---we were the first ones out at the site so we had it all to ourselves (along with the overhead hot air balloons) for quite a while before the tour buses started rolling in. The tour was incredibly comprehensive, the guide very knowledgeable (and incredibly nice!), and all in all, excellent. Special thanks to Leonardo and the tour company, for making this one our trip's highlights!

This tour was above and beyond! We got picked up from the hotel at 7:00am. Our group consisted of 13 people and we all fit well in the transportation van which was clean and new. During the drive "Leo" our guide was informative about our surroundings. Upon arriving, we quickly entered the site (no down time). We had more than enough time to climb the pyramids and walk around the site. Several times I broke off the group to deal with vendors selling small souvenirs and and easily caught back up to my group. You are not restricted or limited by the guide. The Tequila tasting is cool, as well as the shop. The breakfast/lunch is US$10.00 and well worth it. At the site you should buy all small souvenirs you like and save something of "fine" taste for the shop. Remember to haggle at both the site and shop. At the site you should pay about +/- 60% of the initial offer price. While at the shop you can drop the price about 10-15%. The feeling you get while at the site will makes you realize how wrong you were when you initially doubted booking. Have fun!

Allen and our drive took all our worries out from our tour. They picked us up at our hotel and returned us at the right times. They were knowledgeable, fun, and informative. I learned history of the area in a fun way. Don't miss it--- it gets our highest recommendations!

Great tour and our guide Alejandro was excellent. There was enough time to climb the pyramids on our own. Anyone taking the tour should carry water and a snack and wear comfortable shoes. Lot of walking and climbing. Well worth it!!!

It was a long day for us because our hotel was on the south side of the city but it was well worth it. The bus was nice and the guide was very knowledgeable. We got there just at opening so for the first hour or so we had this magical place to ourselves. Pictures can't convey the grandeur of Teotihuacan. We could not have asked for a better experience!

Highly advisable to take the early trip to beat the tourists. Very knowledgable and friendly tour guide. The post pyramid visit lunch and shopping wasn't pressured and was interesting. Great buffet style lunch. I would definitely recommend this trip with this company, and I would use them again.

Our tour guide was the best. We were schooled on the most interesting facts of the Aztecs and the inhabitants of Teotehuacan. He made the experience truly great! He got to know all of us and was very personable. His knowledge of the history of the area and history of it's inhabitants was very detailed and very informative. We found Viator to be a wonderful tour company!

100% recommended, our tour guide was excellent and we learned so much! You also get to beat the crowds by going early. We were practically alone at the pyramids. Regarding the lunch and purchasing at the gift shop; it's not obligatory.
