Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Round-trip hotel transport makes this a stress-free day trip to Teotihuacan and a must-see religious site.
Enjoy pickup by air-conditioned coach from your downtown Mexico City hotel, and travel with your guide outside of the city to Teotihuacan, a UNESCO-listed archaeological site.

Your full-day tour of the pre-Columbian Mesoamerican city takes you around its magnificent pyramids, the Avenue of the Dead, the Temple of Quetzalcoatl, and Temple of the Feathered Serpent, the third largest pyramid at Teotihuacan. Wander down wide avenues, thousands of years old, and learn about the Aztec customs and culture of this ancient site commonly referred to as the City of the Gods.

Climb your way up the Sun Pyramid and the Moon Pyramid. From the summit, admire the vast Avenue of the Dead, the mile-long (1.6 km) road that divided the city and stretched from the Moon Plaza in the north to the Great Compound in the south.

After your Teotihuacan tour, head to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the most visited religious site in Latin America. Learn about the Spanish Baroque work of art built in the 16th century. Legend has it that a ‘lady from heaven’ appeared in 1531 to a local peasant at Tepeyac, a hill just outside of Mexico City. She identified herself as the Mother of the True God, instructed him to have the bishop construct a temple on this location and left an image of herself imprinted miraculously on his tilma, or cloak.

Your tour ends with transport back to your hotel.

Very nice experience

Very good experience. We spent sufficient time on the pyramids and the shrine and as an extra we visited the square of three cultures. Our guide Fernando was very knowledgeable. Food was also good.

Tour company completely misrepresents what is actually delivered

Nothing about the tour that I actually got was what was promised when I purchased tickets online. I was picked up at 8:46am for a tour that supposedly started at 8am. And there were 2 other pick ups after us. The vehicle was a minivan, not a "coach" as promised. The "what to expect" indicated that there would only be two stops: the Teotihuacan Pyramids and Shrine of Guadalupe, and a stop for lunch. Instead, we stopped at the Square of Three Cultures (which I saw as a positive bonus), and then a half hour at a goldsmith's shop where they sold jewelry to tourists. Once we reached the Teotihuacan Pyramids, we were told we would only be there for 2 hours, instead of 4 hours as the information online promised. We had to argue with the guide to give us more time there, and he eventually agreed. At the pyramids our guide gave us a 20 minute introduction at the entrance and then left us to explore the site ourselves, when I had understood that he would be accompanying us around the site and providing a "guided tour" as other tour guides seemed to be doing. We had negotiated getting our own lunch at La Gruta (recommended) and so we were picked up at the pyramids after 4 hours there and then driven to the Shrine. At the Shrine, the guide asked us how long we wanted to be there, we said an hour (as the online information had promised), and then told us to meet back at the van in an hour. There was no guided tour provided at all. And then we were driven back to our hotels. I arrived home at 7pm. So when they say it's an 11 hour tour, this is what they mean. It would've been a lot cheaper for us to just arrange transportation ourselves through Uber, pay the 80peso admission to the pyramids, and visit the free on-site museum (which the guide didn't mention) for additional information. It's unfortunate, because our guide seemed very knowledgeable and spoke English well.

Very friendly guide, but we wasted a lot of time in gift stores on the way. We ended up arriving at the worst possible time (i.e. the middle of the afternoon with the highest heat and largest crowds). I would not take this tour again.

Raul was a wonderful tour guide! Made everyone on the tour feel included and very knowledgable. Around two hours at the Pyramids which I found to be ample followed by lunch near by. Raul was very conscious about sticking to the itinerary meaning no time was lost.

Our tour was not as described at all. Started with the change of time. They arrived at 9:35am. We booked an English tour and there was not an English speaking tour guide. They also change the schedule of events and we spent more time at there gift shops than the actual attractions.

Good balance of activities and guide (Anna) was very informative. There’s two hours at teotihuacan - this actually may not be enough to climb the pyramid of the sun (as there are huge queues to get up it!)
