Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Experience Mexico City: Teotihuacan Pyramids by Metro and Dinner with a Local Family

An authentic dinner in Mexico!

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 :

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!

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!!!

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.

I'm so late to the party but I really wanted to review the tour I took back in February. I have wanted to go see the pyramids at Teotihuacan for as long as I could remember. I found this tour and decided to book it and I am so infinitely happy I did. Our tour guide I think it was Leon, guy in his mid/late 20's, fedora and glasses was so awesome and knowledgeable about not only CDMX and the history but Teotihuacan as well. Our group was small, our tour guide and myself and friend and 2 others.
We walked up both pyramids and when we got to the top of Sol, we said a little prayer to the sun god. It was such an emotional moment that brought me to tears.
After the pyramids, we walked into San Francisco de Los Piramides and visited a local obsidian worker. At his home, we also had a small tasting of pulque and mescal. We then went to the neighboring town of San Marcos to visit a distillery and then head to a local home for dinner.
Our home-cooked meal of chicken and nopales was absolutely divine as was the conversation we all had over food and drinks. Once dinner was done, we headed around the corner to get the bus back to CDMX.

I would do this tour every single day for the rest of my life if I could. The next time I go back to CDMX, I will 100 take this tour again.

The tour was fantastic and the site is a wonder. The amount of historical and contextual information related to it makes it essential to have a knowledgeably guide to be able to truly appreciate the visit. Our guide Rodrigo was awesome -- friendly, outgoing, and really enthusiastic about the subject matter. He clearly loved the history, science, and conjecture about Teotihuacan and keeps up-to-date with theories and findings that are ongoing at this mysterious and ancient place. He brought our tour group together wonderfully and was able to give us an answer and context to every obscure question our inquisitive minds could dream up. He is absolutely top notch.

On top of it all, our group had a fantastic time together which was capped off by a delicious meal at local's house. As mentioned in other comments -- not actually eating WITH the family, but clearly a lovingly cooked meal in a cozy setting. Would recommend highly to anyone interested in really learning a lot and having an informative and hands-on small group experience.

This trip was worth every penny. Cesar was our tour guide and made every moment safe, informative and special. I was scared to climb the pyramids and he held my hand. That goes above and beyond. I would give it 10 stars if I could. Than you Cesar!
