A fabulous private tour with a knowledgeable and friendly guide The Aztec and pre-Aztec ruins are fascinating. The cathedral at Tepotzotlan is beautiful in its ornateness even though the religious aspect did not interest me. Still well worth the visit.

Have always wanted to see these sites but there are no large, group tours. Decided to splurge on a private car. A little pricey but well worth it! Our guide Carlos and driver Anna were exceptional. Carlos extremely knowledgeable of archaeology, history, and culture. Anna the best and most patient driver I have ever experienced! I kept telling my husband to take lessons from her! These two sites are awesome and should not be missed! This tour takes all day so be prepared to return late. Water provided, take a hat!

Out driver Louis was very professional, had a very nice vehicle and knew best routing. Our Guide David Suverza was very knowledgeable, easy to understans, responsive and adaptable to our needs and tailored our tour to our desired experience. Tula is a different Temple experience from other Temples and is well worth the drive to it. Additionally David added info and pointed out points of interest on the way. Would recommend this tour and Guides to all.

We had an awesome time visiting the Toltec ruins at Tula and the Museum of the Viceroyalty in Tepotzotlan. The Toltecs were the successors to the Teotihuacan culture, and the predecessors to the Aztecs. If you are into Mesoamerican history, Tula is a must-visit location. If you are interested in the history of the colonial period, Tepotzotlan is a must. The Jesuit college/monastery, now the Museum of the Viceroyalty has an amazing collection and the Baroque church is stunning. You have a choice of places to eat and we selected Los Virreyes and we were not disappointed. The tourista menu has some great choices and includes dessert and fantastic café del olla. Our driver, Luis was safe and courteous. Our guide was Alejandra and she was very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this trip.

The tour was great! Both sites are highly recommended to visit. Our tour guide David was the great, with outstanding knowledge in Mexican history and culture. Everything was in time. David was ready to customize the tour according to our interests. He even missed his lunch helping us with sightseeing :. We will definitely book other tours with David.
