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.
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!
The organization of the trip was great, prompt and carefully tailored. I appreciated the tour guides vast knowledge of the area and of Mexico in general. Taking in a huge bus into the lands of the natives seemed a bit much for me but it is a perfect schedule to go in early and leave before the crowds. Do not miss this opportunity!
This is a must do tour when you are in mexico city. Amigo tour guide cant remember his name, he is very knowledgeable about the history of mexico city in particular teotihuacan. Hotel pickup was on time altho i had difficulty in reaching them via email that i had to ask several times to confirm the pick up time. Highly recommended!!
Very enjoyable tour, our guide was knowledgable it made seeing the sites so interesting. I loved every minute of it! I would do it again if I get back to Mexico City.
Teotihuacan is an incredible sight!Our tour guide Nelson was funny and very knowledgeable!Overall a great trip.
The Teotihuacan site is truly amazing, it shouldn't be missed. Guide was very knowledgable and very helpful.
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...
What a great experience!!! Our Archeologist was funny and kept things interesting as well as informative. He Paced the tour well, allowing for periods of free time for us to explore on our own, or to stay with him and learn more. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
Awesome tour. It gets crowded during the day so arriving early in the morning is great.
Excellent tour! Was the highlight of my trip to Mexico City. This history, beauty of the site--all makes for a magical day! Plus you will meet awesome people from around the world!
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.
Gerson was not only very knowledgeable but very charismatic - it made the whole experience amazing! Recommend it.
Our guide Kevin was awesome. He conducted the tour in both English and Spanish. He was very knowledgeable and informative, and full of energy. Bring water and snacks and be prepared for plenty of walking and climbing. Good shoes are a must. Persons traveling from low elevations should beware of the thin air. Bring a camera as you will want to relive the experience.
The Early Morning Tour with the a Private Archeologist to the pyramids of Teotihuacan was very well-orgnanized, the tour guide I think his name was Leonardo was great, very friendly and very competent! I asked him many questions and he could answer them all! I also loved that the bus picked me up at home and brought me back there. All in all it was a wonderful experience with a great guide, a nice, small group of people, safety and comfort!
The trip was amazing.
The tour agency was very nice. I missed the leaving point and they came back to pick me up. The tour guide - Alejandro- was great. He explained history in an interesting way.
Looking forward to come back to Mexico and go with this agency for more trips.
Our guide was great and the driver. He explained everything. He answer our questions. It was great time. I would recommend to everyone to take the trip to the Pyramids.
