Teotihuacan Pyramids Private Tour from Mexico City | Jan 2020
Our guide, Javier, was great! We were picked up promptly and began the drive to Teotihuacan. We stopped at the Basilica of our Lady of Guadalupe on the way. It was the Sunday of a holiday weekend so the basilica and Teotihuacan were both very busy. There was a very long line to climb the temple of the sun, but our guide was extremely flexible and patient. We were able to take our time at all of the Teotihuacan pyramids. We then went to a place where they showed us obsidian, the agave plants, and we did a small tasting of local liquors (tequila, mezcal, various infused types, etc.) There was opportunity to buy some souvenirs, but there wasn't any pressure. Overall we would highly recommend this private day trip!

Teotihuacan Pyramids Private Tour from Mexico City | Aug 2019
Javier was a wonderful tour guide. His large suburban SUV was clean, cool and comfortable. He showed us the Shrine of Guadalupe on the way to Teotihuican. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. After a day of exploring the pyramids, we had lunch at a roadside restaurant (very good, but food not included), and a tequila, pulque and mexcal tasting. We shopped for lovely souvenirs in the co-op shop. Great day!

Teotihuacan Pyramids Private Tour from Mexico City | Jul 2019
Wonderful trip. Our tour guide Javier was exactly what we wanted. He was very knowledgeable about the site and the people that lived there. We had ample time to explore the site on our own. He answered all our questions perfectly. We learned so much about the history of central mexico as well as present day life in mexico city. It was a great day trip.

Teotihuacan Pyramids Private Tour from Mexico City | Jun 2019
Cesar had an amazing store of knowledge (and numbers) that he dispensed throughout the day in an easygoing and digestible way. He knew exactly where to park and how to make the most of the sites. We saw the church of Guadalupe on the way to the pyramids, and that was a real treat.

A Relaxed and Informative Private Tour Experience

Teotihuacan Pyramids Private Tour from Mexico City | Jan 2019
Our private tour of the Teotihuacan Pyramids was one of the more memorable days of our first trip to Mexico City. We were picked up on time at our hotel by our tour guide, Javier, who was friendly and effervescent and eager to share his knowledge, not only of the pyramids, but also of the Basilica of the Virgin of Guadalupe and other parts of the city along our drives to and from the UNESCO site. In all, arranging the tour through Viator was easy and the communications from the tour operator were clear and helpful in contributing to an excellent tour experience.

MUST-SEE ´Centro Historico´ - Essential INTRO to Historic Downtown Mexico City | Jan 2019
We only had a couple of days in Mexico City this time around and wanted to make the most of them. Santiago was a very warm and professional guide. He took the time upfront to understand what we were interested in and then came up with an itinerary on the fly that met all of our needs. He was a font of information about the pre-Columbian history of the city all the way through the current political situation. We would highly recommend working with this tour company.

SECURE, Punctual, Private Airport Transfer with BILINGUAL Chauffeur | Jul 2018
At the end of a day of travel, it was such a pleasure to skip the taxi lines and find our driver waiting for us with a sign and our name. He was professional and bilingual as promised. The best thing about the service is that they emailed us that day with his name and a photo. I know it is more expensive but we felt it was worth every penny.

Private Downtown Street Art and Graffiti Tour in Mexico City | Jul 2018
Elmo was an excellent knowledgeable guide who is obliviously passionate about street art. He was easy to contact and made meeting up at the starting point very easy. We toured murals from internationally acclaimed artist as well as local artist. We also visited an authentic street art store that will not be on agenda but is a great experience. The highlight of the tour was participating in a group art project in which we actually painted a wall. Take this tour it’s great

Teotihuacan Pyramids Private Tour from Mexico City | Jun 2018
The tour was excellent, in general. Could have done with less time in the souvenir area, but this is understandable. Santiago was an excellent guide, with a depth of knowledge that was astonishing. Manuel was an excellent, and careful driver in the chaotic traffic of Mexico City. What was shown of the Pyramids was sufficient to inspire awe in the teenagers in my group. Heartily recommend this tour to those who do not want a mass driven visit to an astounding pre-hispanic site.

Teotihuacan Pyramids Private Tour from Mexico City | Nov 2017

We have done this trip a few years ago with on a bus tour. We were back with my stepson this year, plus we got partially rained out on the first trip. Obviously, Teotihuacan is great a must see. No question about that.

Comparing this tours - there are cheaper options for a 3 people to join a larger group. But the private tour made the whole day smooth and at our pace. The Zona Rosa was shutdown which complicated our pickup, but Javier handled it well. A great day and worth the premium for setting our own pace with a very comfortable ride.

This was a great day trip. My wife and I decided to take this tour of the Teotihuacan Pyramids a week before our trip and had no issues booking it online with Viator. Being a private tour was a great bonus and our tour guide Javier was highly knowledgeable and very informative, I would highly recommend requesting Javier Tapia if you plan to take this day trip.
