Leave Mexico City behind on a small-group tour to the ancient Teotihuacán pyramids. After meeting your guide at a central location, head by metro to the town of San Martin de las Piramides, located about 30 miles (48 km) outside of Mexico City.

Upon arrival, begin your journey into Teotihuacán, a UNESCO World Heritage site, at the on-site museum, where your guide points out reconstructions of local houses, as well as relics discovered in the archaeological zone.

Enter the ancient city and stroll through the Calzada de los Muertos (Pass of the Dead) to reach the Sun Pyramid, the area's tallest, towering at 206 feet (63 meters). Huff your way to the top for impressive bird’s-eye views of the Calzada de los Muertos. Gain insight into the Moon Pyramid’s history and architecture, and hear why the Aztecs dubbed Teotihuacán the City of the Gods.

After touring Teotihuacán, visit a pulqueria and a cactus factory in San Martin de las Piramides. Meet a local family producer of pulque, the alcoholic beverage sacred to the Aztecs, and sample candies and creams made from varieties of cacti.

There’s nothing like a home-cooked meal to end a day. Share dinner with another family at their house, and enjoy getting to know each other and more about everyday life in Mexico.

After your satisfying meal, hop on public transportation with your guide and return to your departure point.

Ady is an amazing tour guide, she had answers for all the curious questions our group had apart from the knowledge about the history of the site. Later we visited a local obsidian artisan to learn more about it and pulque/mezxcal/tequilla/ cactus fruit liquor, our group had a lovely time. Then visited a local family home for a delicious dinner cooked just for us, as we got back to the city she was helpful on uber pickups/ways to reaching our hotels. I would 100 recommend this tour to everyone who wish to visit the pyrimads

This trip is totally worth it! My 21 year old son and I both enjoyed the entire experience! It's a long day, so pack plenty of water, sunscreen and get a good night's rest before hand! The pyramids are a definite bucket list activity, once in a lifetime.
My son and I loved visiting the local family for some samples of tequila, mescal and pulca. The other family provided our dinner which was great! Our guide was Adi, she was awesome!!!!!
All around worthwhile side trip :

The tour guide was great, explaining every structure we saw. The place is breathtaking but I would suggest to visit it early morning to avoid the sun and the crowds. The visit to the first family was totally worth it since it included a little tequila-mezcal-pulque tasting which was great. The dinner with the local family, you'd expect something more personal and traditional, but neither the dinner was personalized the family didn't even dinner with us, instead they just served the food or traditional beside of the salsa preparation, the actual dinner wasn't traditional Mexican food. Or maybe I just expected other menú.

Great tour! Our guide Rodrigo was really knowledgeable about the pyramids, and has excellent English and communication skills. We really enjoyed having dinner at the local family's house. This was a wonderful way to experience Mexico!

Cesar was our guide. He was extremely passionate, knowledgeable and watchful of his group. I enjoyed the agenda from the Pyramides to the Obsidian Tour to the food tasting.

This is not a poor reflection of Cesar, but the food tasting was definitely displayed as a sponsored product program - a racket. The presenters were quick to have us taste 10 things, and the prices for their products were way overpriced - even by US standards. While not pushy, I'm sure this is why they move through the presentation quickly because few buy. The prices should be slashed about 75 to be reasonable for purchase. One 1.5 ounce sample of jam was 5 USD while a 10 ounce jar was 10 USD. 99 of people would never pay that price even in the US. That part was a scam.

I think the tour company could afford to get a dedicated taxi or bus from the obisidian experience to dinner.

The dinner was tasty!

The best way to spend Thanksgiving!! Dress comfortably, bring a sweater, and a cap...atop the pyramids, it is very windy. Do not be fooled...the steps are quite steep and there is one rope for guidance. Trust and believe...if you don't know Jesus before reaching to top, you will get to know him on the decent!! The dinner with the local family...worth every bite and some!! The samples of vodka, the conversation with the locals....OMG!!!

Following a slightly delayed start, waiting on the arrival of other group members who had taken a morning tour elsewhere, our Pyramid adventure began in earnest. We piled into a comfortable, mini- bus and headed out of the city. Transport was meant to be on the metro but this was far preferable as it allowed our Guide, Nathan, to speak with us enroute to our destination- there was a separate driver. First stop was the Palacios de Tetitla - an archeological dig made significant by the paintings that were discovered.
Nothing prepared us for the sight of the Temples/ Pyraminds of the Sun and Moon - magnificent! Those who wished to do so, climbed to the top of one or both of these impressive structures always with the careful guidance of our guide, Nathan. There are clean, modern toilet facilities at the site and be prepared to be approached by the many touts on site, selling everything from water, through silver jewel leery to animal noise makers. Be assured none of the latter market aggressively. It is wise to take a hat even in mid winter as the sun was blazing down upon us. Of course, you can purchase a hat from one of the many stalls leading to the main site for a very reasonable price.
Our group was comprise of a majority of under 35's which made the Tequila and other luscious liquids tasting session a hoot. The family who offered this service were delightful, with the patriarch being especially knowledgeable about both Agave and Obsidian. A modest but tasty evening meal at a family residence provided a fitting finale to a memorable and diverse experience.

We had a great time with Rodriguez and Bene. Roy is the best. He was very knowledgeable and friendly and knew where all his group was at all times. He was very helpful in getting us all back to the best place for us. Our group enjoyed the tour to the shaman and the wonderful dinner prepared by the local family. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

Nathan was an excellent tour guide. Friendly, well informed, patient and fun to be with. Family dinner was excellent. Visited a home where we were given a tutorial on tequila and obsidian. Good value. Highly recommend. One comment: why meet at Museum of Modern Design and then walk to Bellas Artes to catch MetroBus?

We scheduled a last minute tour and the booking manager at Viator was able to find us this really fun tour. Our guide, Rodrigo, was very, energetic and spoke English well. A great time spent for half a day in Mexico and well worth the price point.
