I believe it is really good option as when we came to the site was really quite and not many people were there so we had time to walk easily. Tour was nice and wort recommandation.
Very good tour. Pickup bus arrived on time, entertaining, friendly and informative guide. Interesting tour. Nice buffet lunch included. Early start meant missing the crowds, even on a weekday. Range of souvenirs available but not pushy. Tequila tasting was good too. Returned to hotel at reasonable time. Highly recommended.
The guide was very good and professional. The tour was just amazing. We had been there before but wanted to take a tour this time around to learn more. Not only did we learned about the pyramids, but the guide also explained lots of things in the city!!
Our tour to Teotihuacan was one of the highlights of our stay in Mexico City. The temples at Teotihuacan were breathtaking and the stories behind them fascinating. When we climbed to the top of the temple of the sun to view the whole area and we realized just how massive this ancient city was and what life might have been like for its citizens. Our tour was well organized, the group size small and our tour guide was friendly and knowledgable. We would highly recommend a Viator tour to anyone visiting this area.
We had an excellent time. Alejandro was a kind, knowledgable, and entertaining host from start to finish. The van was safe and safely driven. Our seat belts worked, which is not something we can say for the taxis we've been in this week.
We learned a lot about the history and the culture (what is known, what is not), the structures, and more. We asked a lot of questions about modern Mexican life and Mexico City, and he had a lot to share there, as well, including on the drive out to the site. Alejandro has a fun and practical perspective.
Going early in the morning was wonderful. It was cool at first, but warmed up quickly, and being some of the very first people on the site, we definitely beat the crowds.
There was plenty of time, without being excessive, for climbing both pyramids and touring the grounds.
You will be taken to a gift shop/restaurant afterwards. We really enjoyed it -- they gave some informational demos of how their goods are made. We had no idea how much the agave plant provided! Sure, they do it also to help sell their goods, but we enjoyed it a lot. They also gave us tastings of over 5 liquers and liquors, one or two of which seemed very unique to us We didn't think it was too much time at the shop/restaurant -- about an hour, including lunch at the buffet -- so just be aware of it. The food was fine.
We were back at our hotel sometime between 2pm and 3pm.
My husband really enjoyed the trip. The guide showed up at the designated spot at the right time and my husband told me he had really good time. I chose to not go as we have two boys age 3 and 4. Next time we are in the DF, we may do it with our boys!
Liked the smaller tour bus, loved getting to Teotihuacan early before the crowds. Ivan (our guide) was pleasant, gave enough interesting info and took good care of our group. The pyramid complex is clean and impressive. Absolutely recommend this tour.
The tour was very enjoyable. The tour guide was very knowledgeable as well as friendly. When we arrived early at the Pyramid of the Moon, we had the entire site to ourselves for almost an hour. The balance
between lecture and sightseeing was perfect.
Highly recommend the early morning tour as it was nice and quiet when we arrived and started to get busy as we left.. The lunch was 130 pesos each, local buffet, nice food, nice souvenir shop, tequila tasting.
Tour guide was knowledgable and helpful... Highly recommend!!!
Simpy Brilliant! Our guide was enthusiastic, and a joy to be with.
A memory that both my daughter and I will treasure for many years.
Our guide was fantastic. It was a small group of 14 people. All spoke English. The guide went at a pace that was good for us and gave us time to explore. He was very open to individual questions. Leo was really great. Very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour. Only thing to watch out for is the pick up location. They are not clear as to where they are going to pick you up. We had to call even though we told them the name of our hotel. Also the pick up time in the add is not accurate it depends on where your hotel is and how many people are going to be going. Just double check. Also bring water as they do not provide it. But still it was a fantastic time.
This trip is awesome! I was picked up in my hotel 10 minutes late because of the traffic in Mexico City but still we made it to the archeological ruins early in the morning. We had the place by ourselves, no crowd. Alejandro, our guide was very nice. I learned a lot! We had plenty of time to let pour minds wander and wonder and climb the pyramid of the sun and the pyramid of the moon. When we left the site, cars were already lining up and the crowd starts to gather. Alejandro brought us to a buffet lunch in a restaurant that also sells handicrafts and souvenir items. The trip was definitely worth every penny!
This trip was awesome. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour fun.
