What You Can Expect

Experience Mexico City: Teotihuacan Pyramids by Metro and Dinner with a Local Family

Enjoy an authentic dinner in Mexico!

Leave Mexico City behind on a small-group tour to the ancient Teotihuacán pyramids. After meeting your guide at a central location, head by metro to the town of San Martin de las Piramides, located about 30 miles (48 km) outside of Mexico City.

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.

i can't recommend this trip any higher. It was truly great, our guide (Cesar) was absolutely fantastic!!! Answered all our questions with great detail and kept everything so interesting. Our only disappointment was that he didn't have time to join us for a beer afterwards.

We weren't expecting much for the dinner with a local family but we were pleasantly surprised - the food was delicious and filled us right up!

We will be 100% sending anyone we speak to your way!!

Thanks again !!!

Luis Is Amazing!
He was very knowledgable about the site and the history of Teotihuacan! Our group was diverse and he adapted well while still adding humor and light heartedness to the environment. I this you all lucky to have him as a guide and as a member of the Viator crew.
As we walked to the tree family's homes he told us about the area and the people. Dinner with the family was fantastic because the home was built for our accommodations. Even there, Louis didn't stop teaching us things about Mexican culture and etiquette.
Awesome all around from start to finish!
Thank you SO much Luis, Thank you Viator for this opportunity!
