Fantastic and not to be missed! Make the effort to get up early for the trip to the pyramids. Be aware there is A LOT of walking and climbing. It is not for the faint of heart. And wear comfortable shoes...it's essential! Lots of time to explore at the pyramids and then you are taken to a small area for explanation of liquor, textiles, carvings, and of course shopping. Lunch is on your own at the one restaurant. Buffet was 190 mx plus drinks. Or you can order a la carte. It was very good and lots to choose from.
Was quite happy with the tour overall. Pickup was within 3 minutes of scheduled time. I felt our guide was incredibly intelligent and knowledgeable and answered all of my questions and the group's. We got to the site early, so there weren't that many people. By the end of the time at the pyramids, the crowds began to fill in. The pace was a bit fast and I would've liked more time in the park, but I understand having to hurry as there is a lot to see. We still had ample time to climb three pyramids and hear about their history, relation to nature, and the history of the people who practiced religion at Teotihuacan. The agave/tequila/obsidian store was interesting as well. I wouldn't call it a tourist trap per se, but it gets close still, I learned a lot and got to sample some delicious smooth mescal, tequila, and pulque as well as learn a lot about obsidian. The restaurant was nice, though buffet was a bit pricey - still worth it as they had some unique eats that I hadn't tried before. The transfer back to Mexico City was fine. I left my sunglasses on the bus, and Amigo Tours worked with the bus company to get them back within two days. They were very friendly to deal with and helpful in returning my lost item, even going as far as to offering to deliver it to my hotel, which says a lot about the company and the employees working there. Overall, I felt the tour was worth the money and made our visit to Teotihuacan enjoyable, entertaining, and informative.
Great tour with great tour guide. Well worth the money.
This was one of the best trips I have taken with an outstanding guide. getting to the site early avoided crowds and allowed us to view sites one would normally not have access to. The guide was super knowledgeable and the views were astounding. even the visit to the artisan site and lunch were great. don't miss it!

This was a breathtaking tour that gave a great insight on Mexico's vast history. The pyramids are beautiful and a must see. The guide was great and very informative as well.

I really enjoyed this tour. For starters, if you consider the cost of taking an Uber round trip and the risk of not being able to find an Uber in Teotihuacan, you're already breaking even. So the tour is actually excellent value for money. You'll be in a private group which is the size of a couple of dozen people, so the tour group size while not tiny is quite acceptable. As a result, of course you won't get a personalised step-by-step story throughout but our guide Alejandro was funny and engaging. Content of the tour is like a high-level Wikipedia entry so if you want something more intimate / in-depth you'll probably be better off with a more private small group which would be obviously more expensive. The time given to explore the two main pyramids was enough to climb up and down along with time to take pictures. At the end, there was a somewhat commercial detour to a souvenir type shop: don't shop there as the markups are crazy. Easy enough to ignore though. Not a lot of restaurant choices under Teotihuacan, which meant the restaurant we went to didn't have much choice on the menu the buffet was good enough value though.
The tour was great. The schedule was very smooth, and both the driver and the tour guide were very helpful. The only drawback was that we did not get a chance to pick up a map before entering the park, and it took us a while to find the gate 1 to exit we entered at gate 5. It would be better to drop people off at gate 1 such that they can get a map before visiting the pyramids.
Great guide and wonderful site.
I really enjoyed the tour. The guide Alejandro was great, knowledgeable and ready to answer any questions. The pyramids are truly impressive. We made a stop at a shop and restaurant later where you can buy some artisan stuff like obsidian figurines and taste some pulque, mezcal and tequila.
Really great tour! Knowledgeable and friendly guide who just wanted to dance through the day. Only bad point was other tourists complaining that we were late to lunch, but we did have a stop on the way to buy snacks. Be prepared for a lot of walking and a tiring day!
