We had a good long walk through the site and our guide seemed quite knowledgeable about it. Hard to hear her talk and we needed a crib sheet to understand all the names of the gods she kept rattling off. Nonetheless we got the gist of it. Going by public transportation was OK, but be prepared for crowded, stuffy buses. Lots of up and down on the narrow stone stairs and bring your sun protection.

I was in Vladamir's group. Loved his passion and knowledge for and about Teotihuacan. Also, the people i met in the group were wonderful . Highly recommend that you hold your bags and backpacks in front of you on the public bus and on the subway to avoid attracting pickpockets. Other than that, this is a great day trip not to be missed.

This tour was incredible because Vladimir was so passionate and knowledgeable about the Teotihuacan Pyramids. He answered any questions that we had and knew so much about the history of this ancient city and civilization. This was a huge highlight of my trip to Mexico City, and it is well worth the price. I definitely recommend packing lots of water, some snacks, and sunscreen! Enjoy!

Leon our guide gave us the most wonderful Teotihuacan experience. He was no only extremely so knowledgeable about the Pyramids, but also a wealth of information about Mexico in general. I would recommend this trip to others, especially with Leon, without reservation.

An incredible experience. Our guide, Vladimir, was just the sweetest. He really got into the complexities of Teotihuacan culture and society, from their gods and myths to their day-to-day life to their demise, still shrouded in mystery. Walking through the ruins, I could almost visualise what it was like all those centuries ago.

Climbing the Pyramid of the Sun is arduous but worth the 365 steps!! The view is incredible. I think the Pyramid of the Sun is worth climing as well - there's not as many steps, but you get a view straight down the long aisle of the city, which was designed to mimic the 4 cardinal points - a.k.a, the universe. Also, there's a market where you can buy little sculptures made from obsidian, one of the ancient people's main trading exports, as a momento from your tour - I've heard that they're fake, but I choose not to believe that :P

Two pieces of advice:
1. Bring lots of snacks!!! We did not stop for lunch, although if you're desperate, there are little stores at the bus station or near the toilets on site. You don't want to realise you're running low on energy the moment you take the first step up the Pyramid of the Sun - with 364 to go.
2. Lather on the sunscreen. I'm glad I went, but jeez, the entire backs of my legs were salmon pink. Ouch. You'll be in direct sunlight for about 3 hours - don't make the same mistake I did!!

It was as good as advertised with a well-versed, informative and friendly guide. We never felt we were being rushed or herded. Great experience.

Great trip with Leon as our guide. We took public transportation which was also interesting and part of the experience. Leon is very knowledgeable and down to earth. He paced us well when we climbed the pyramids.

This was such a great tour! we had maybe like 10-15 people on the tour so I didnt feel like we were this massive group. The best thing about this tour was the Tour guide! he was incredible extremely intelligent and thoroughly explained with much detail everything we saw and the historical, social and economic life and history of the Teotihuacan Pyramids I highly suggest this tour and would definitely recommend it to everyone.

Our excellent guide, Vladimir, was very passionate about the history of Teotihuacan, and it made the experience much more meaningful. A bit disappointed that the group was closer to 25 people than the supposed maximum 15, but enjoyable nonetheless. The view from the Sun Pyramid is incredible, and some of the sites Vladimir will take you to off the beaten track help to flesh out what Teotihucan would have been like as a living city. Using public transit with the guides was safe and easy, with good views of the countryside en route.

Make sure you bring lots of water, sunscreen, and a light lunch to eat as you walk around the site essentially, be prepared for what amounts to a light hike. Our tour ran long, which was fine for us, but be aware that it may take longer than you expect -- there is a lot to see and learn! If you come prepared, you'll be better able to appreciate it all.
