What You Can Expect
Upon arrival, begin your journey into Teotihuacán, a UNESCO World Heritage site, at the on-site museum, where your guide points out reconstructions of local houses, as well as relics discovered in the archaeological zone.
Enter the ancient city and stroll through the Calzada de los Muertos (Pass of the Dead) to reach the Sun Pyramid, the area's tallest, towering at 206 feet (63 meters). Huff your way to the top for impressive bird’s-eye views of the Calzada de los Muertos. Gain insight into the Moon Pyramid’s history and architecture, and hear why the Aztecs dubbed Teotihuacán the City of the Gods.
After touring Teotihuacán, visit a pulqueria and a cactus factory in San Martin de las Piramides. Meet a local family producer of pulque, the alcoholic beverage sacred to the Aztecs, and sample candies and creams made from varieties of cacti.
There’s nothing like a home-cooked meal to end a day. Share dinner with another family at their house, and enjoy getting to know each other and more about everyday life in Mexico.
After your satisfying meal, hop on public transportation with your guide and return to your departure point.
Our tour to the Teotihuacan Pyramids was incredible! We had a large group so they ended up booking a van for us rather than taking public transit which was perfectly fine with us. Our tour guide, Rodrigo, was AMAZING! He definitely made the trip very fun and educational. We spent a good amount of time at the Pyramids exploring the grounds and climbing to the top of the Pyramid of the Moon and the Pyramid of the Sun. We then went to a local home and sampled some mezcal and tequila and then made our way to another home where we got to sample many different delicious foods which they had for sale. I ended up buying a lot to bring home with me as souvenirs. From there, we went to another family home where they cooked us a beautiful meal. And then it was back to Mexico City. A wonderful day with the best guide Rodrigo! We would do this tour again in a heartbeat.
Great guide, the local family dinner was great.
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and very easy going. The trips to the pulqueria and dinner in a local home set this tour apart from all the rest. It offered us a glimpse of what life is like beyond the common tourist locations. I'd recommend this to anyone who wishes to gain a greater understanding of this region's culture, both modern day and ancient.
Great day activity. Fun informative and mixed with some local traditions. Well worth spending the day of your trip out here.
Real and authentic tour. Angela and the rest of the locals were great in educating us about the history of Teotihuacan and various other topics such as how different colors were obtained naturally to paint and decorate back then. The family dinner was an amazing experience and allowed us to interact with locals through our broken Spanish.
Our guide was excellent.
Our tour guide, Cesar, was on time. It is a great way to see Mexico. Cesar took good care of us on the bus and metro system. We learned a lot. A lot of walking. Great time
