Board a van and travel with your archeologist-guide from Mexico City to Teotihuacan, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, also known as the City of the Gods. A former Mesoamerican indigenous civilization that predates the Maya and Aztecs, Teotihuacan was once the largest city in Mexico, reaching its heyday in the 1st century CE (AD) when the Sun Pyramid was constructed.

Be one of the first visitors to arrive at the archeological park, right when it opens. In relative tranquility, wander through plazas and discover the pyramids without jostling around crowds. Enjoy taking unobstructed photos of must-see structures like the Temple of Quetzalcoatl, also known as the Temple of the Feathered Serpent, as well as the Palace of Quetzalpapalot.

Gain special insight into the complex’s less-visited monuments, including intricate murals and other architectural nuances. Hear about the latest archeological discoveries, the lifestyles of the inhabitants of this ancient city and theories behind the city’s decline.

Huff your way up the Sun Pyramid and the Moon Pyramid, the main axis of Teotihuacan. From the top, enjoy your bird’s-eye vantage point of the Avenue of the Dead, the primary road that runs through the center of the city, which separated the city and stretched from the Moon Plaza in the north to the Great Compound in the south.

After your Teotihuacan tour, hop aboard your transport and head to an obsidian workshop to learn more about the black volcanic rock native to the area. Chat with a local family and sample several liqueurs made from cactus, as well as mezcal, tequila, and pulque. For lunch, select from a variety of traditional Mexican dishes (own expense), before enjoying transport back to the central meeting point.
Itinerary
Pass By:  
Zona Arqueologica Tlatelolco
Pass by Tlatelolco & learn of the importance of the place which was part of the capital of the Aztec empire. See the Plaza of the Three Cultures where Pre-hispanic, colonial and modern Mexico blend.
Stop At:  
Zona Arqueologica Teotihuacan
Teotihuacan, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Commonly referred to as the City of the Gods, this pre-Columbian Mesoamerican city is known for its well-preserved murals, vast Avenue of the Dead and the impressive pyramids that mark its landscape. Arrive at the archeological park before the crowds in the early morning just as it begins to open its gates. Take in the serene and mystical atmosphere as your group meanders through large empty plazas in the absence of the crowds and explore the pyramids. View the murals, architectural as your guide explains their archeological significance, and tells stories about the culture that inhabited this ancient city. Climb the steep steps to the top of the Sun Pyramid and the Moon Pyramid – the principal axis of Teotihuacan. From the summit, view the lengthy Avenue of the Dead, the mile-long (2.5 km) road that divided the city and extended from the Moon Plaza in the north to the Great Compound in the south.

Time and pace we’re great. I love that we got there before it got crowed. I got very good pictures. The tour guide was kind, but his English was broken and we couldn’t follow his explanations, it was no need to translate since everybody in our group speak English. Also, I think only Hispanic people could understand his jokes.

Amazing tour our guide was Leonardo and he went above and beyond to answer every question we had. His explanations were in Spanish and English. We had so much fun and learned so much! Book this tour and any tour it was worth every penny! The tequila tasting and lunch was also so much fun. Like I said this tour is a must!

Gersev was absolutely great. Doing the pyramids with a guides the only way to go. They are attentive of your needs on the ride and at the Park. Lunch was also very good and extremely cheap for a ton and food. We had more than we could eat plus drinks and it 555.

Not for those concerned about Covid

Not Covid-friendly as social distancing and face masks were not enforced by the guide, particularly in the van transport (all seats full) where windows were kept shut limiting air flow. Overall ok experience given the friendly tour guide and good pacing, but cannot recommend to those who are cautious about the pandemic.

Not the tour I expected, but overall a pleasant experience.

I had signed up for an early morning archaeologist led tour to Teotihuacan. Instead, I found out that 3 different tours were combined. It was nice to see the other religious sites, but I did not get the in-depth archeology tour I was looking forward to. Although disappointed about not getting what I asked for, the tour guide was knowledgeable and spoke both English and Spanish. A recommendation for the company would be to have separate tours for the languages. Every seat in the van was taken, also a bit surprising during covid times. Despite these setbacks, my fellow travelers were friendly and it was overall a pleasant day.
