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.

I had an absolutely great time on this tour. It left promptly and we were out at the pyramids early. We had a great guide and a great group of people with us for the tour. We were able to get some great information, great pics, and even had a marriage proposal at the top of one of the pyramids. Definiitely a tour to remember. I would recommend this tour to everyone who comes to Mexico City. The group was even able to try different types of mezcal. I should have bought there but i was out of money from all the great souvenirs available. A great tour overall...

The tour started a little late, but everything was amazing about the tour. Very smooth, the guide, i think his name was Gerson, wrote it down somewhere and then lost the paper, was great he knew what he was talking about and gave us an explanation about everything that was related not only to the pyramids, but also the history of Mexico and the Spanish colonization. Overall would recommend to anyone, its early in the morning so you will have time to walk around the city in the afternoon.
