What You Can Expect

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

Enjoy an authentic dinner in Mexico!

Meet your guide in central Mexico City and take public transportation to the town of San Martin de las Piramides to embark on a visit to the amazing pyramids of Teotihuacan. The UNESCO World Heritage site includes a museum where you can learn about the artifacts found in the area and see a reconstruction of ancient Teotihuacan's local houses.

Follow your guide to the impressive Moon Pyramid to learn the history and meaning behind this prime example of ancient Latin American architecture. Take a walk through the Calzada de los Muertos (Pass of the Dead) to reach the Pyramid of the Sun, the area's tallest and most spectacular monument, rising 206 feet (63 meters). You can enjoy the tranquility of this amazing site as you climb the pyramid and, once you reach the top, you'll understand why the Aztecs called this 'the place where men become gods.'

After exploring the pyramids, visit the local sights and step inside a local home to meet a family who produces one of the region's best pulque, the alcoholic beverage sacred to the Aztecs. The process, history and significance of this ancient drink becomes clear as you listen to your guide's expert commentary.

Leave the pulqueria and visit a cactus factory where candies and creams are produced from various varieties of cacti. After you sample the range of products, you'll have the opportunity to purchase souvenirs.

Continue your stroll through the town and visit a local family and enjoy cultural traditions, conversation and food as you share dinner in a local Mexican home.

In the evening, experience how locals travel around when you jump on public transportation with your guide back to Mexico City! Observe everyday life in Mexico City at the often busy and crowded stations.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2015

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!

This tour was amazing!

4 star rating: Recommended January 2014

Although the meeting point was a tad difficult to find, the trip from start to finish was a fun and relaxed adventure. Our tour guide Luis was hilarious, knowledgeable and completely down to earth; a really genuine tour guide! The scenery was amazing, the food was fantastic, the tequila and mescal was pretty darn good as well! Learning about all the uses of an Agave cactus and the fruit was a huge highlight and the amazing little places and villages that we visited were such a treat. The whole package was a huge delight and I would definitely recommend this tour!
