What You Can Expect

Early Morning Teotihuacan Pyramids Tour with a Private Archeologist

Teotihuacan Pyramids

After early morning hotel pickup, travel with your archeologist-guide from Mexico City for about an hour to Teotihuacan, a UNESCO-listed 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.

You’ll 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 Quetzalpapalotl.

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 mescal, tequila and pulque. For lunch, select from a variety of traditional Mexican dishes (own expense), before enjoying transport back to your Mexico City hotel.

Brilliant trip, the guide was excellent, plenty of information and a great sense of humour. Quite a bit of walking, 2.5 hours , plus up and down the pyramids, so you need to be reasonably fit, no problem for us and we had a great time. Highly Recommended. 5 stars...

Guide was extremely knowledgeable and courteous. He arrived to at pick up location on time and started providing information about the city and tour right away. He works very hard to make sure every one gets the best experience. I'm very glad I decided to take a tour. I learned so much. Our driver was great as well. Taking us out of the city traffic safely. Afterwards shopping was great as well. Really enjoyed the information and there was no pressure to buy anything. We were not rushed either but had enough time to take pictures and ask questions. Do plan to spend more than half a day. I will highly recommend this tour.
