Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Intimate tour of Teotihuacan before opening hours an archaeologist guide.
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.

My husband and I went on this tour at the end of February and overall enjoyed it. We did not realize how educational the day was going to be. It was interesting and our guide clearly knew his stuff, but it was a bit more than we wanted. If you want to know about the history of the site, this tour is definitely for you. It is a long day in the sun so bring water and sunscreen. We did not see anywhere to purchase water until after the tour.

OK experience

Overall a nice morning out and I'm glad I went but I think slightly overpriced. I would have rather paid around $30 than $42. The group was MUCH too large, maybe 30 people so the guide, Leonardo, did not wait for everyone to gather around for some of his chats meaning that anyone at the back of the group missed chunks of what he was saying. We asked him to repeat pieces at the end. He is incredibly knowledgeable and easy to understand so I was sad to miss out on some of the information. Lastly, the tequilla/mezcal tasting is done wayyyy too fast and before lunch and then lunch is at a not so great restaurant. The whole thing is a tourist trap and the food is overpriced and sub-par which is so sad since there are so many amazing places to eat in Mexico.

The tour is great but the tasting and restaurant at the end are just tourist traps

The tour was great, the guide was really good. Going there just as they open is a good idea. The only thing that let it down was the tequila tasting at the end where the give you lots of tequila (which is awesome) but then push the group into the shop and try to convince you to buy one of everything. The tour is great but the tasting and restaurant at the end are just tourist traps.

Great morning, mediocre tasting and lunch

The pyramids tour was great with good info from guide and stops at relevant sites. The tequila tasting was really just an intro to a promotion of items at a big souvenir shop attached to the restaurant. Also, the buffet items at the restaurant looked a lot better than they tasted (for ex., dry chicken) - mediocre lunch.

The guide was wonderful and had an incredible knowledge of the history of the area. He was transparent about what was happening, what we were doing and a great communicator in both a English and Spanish. A ancient place worth visiting - a wonderful day trip from Mexico City.

We loved our tour of Teotihuacan and enjoyed the knowledgeable tour guide (Fabio). It was great to get out of Mexico City for the day and experience such a unique site. Pick up was conveniently at the hotel we were staying at. Don't forget sunscreen...

Gerson took too long explaining things. Didn’t have time to see the museum. It would have been nice. Also, we were supposed to be back at 3 and didn’t get back until 4:15
