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!

Leon was a great guide! Bring some cash, the stops where you get to meet local artisans will definitely have souvenirs you will want.

This trip with Urban Advantures was wonderful! Our tour guide, Rodrigo, is knowledgeable about Mexico City and the Teotihuacan Pyramids. It's cool that we had a chance to take the local transportation which I didn't dare as I was travelling alone and don't speak Spanish to go to Teotihuacan. The dinner was delicious too, much nicer than some restaurants. :

We had a great tour. Our guide, Leon, and our varied companions had much to talk about. Leon had plenty of history for us and, of course, fun. This tour is organized such that the experience is a group of friends taking a day trip. The local families and producers were welcoming and knowledgeable

Our tour guide, Leon, was an awesome, genuinely nice guy with tons of information about the fantastic place. We even hit it off and I dare say we became friends! The ruins are a must see and dinner was great. Considering all of the inclusions on the tour, we felt it was a great deal.

Our tour to the Teotihuacan Pyramids was incredible! We had a large group so they ended up booking a van for us rather than taking public transit which was perfectly fine with us. Our tour guide, Rodrigo, was AMAZING! He definitely made the trip very fun and educational. We spent a good amount of time at the Pyramids exploring the grounds and climbing to the top of the Pyramid of the Moon and the Pyramid of the Sun. We then went to a local home and sampled some mezcal and tequila and then made our way to another home where we got to sample many different delicious foods which they had for sale. I ended up buying a lot to bring home with me as souvenirs. From there, we went to another family home where they cooked us a beautiful meal. And then it was back to Mexico City. A wonderful day with the best guide Rodrigo! We would do this tour again in a heartbeat.

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and very easy going. The trips to the pulqueria and dinner in a local home set this tour apart from all the rest. It offered us a glimpse of what life is like beyond the common tourist locations. I'd recommend this to anyone who wishes to gain a greater understanding of this region's culture, both modern day and ancient.

Real and authentic tour. Angela and the rest of the locals were great in educating us about the history of Teotihuacan and various other topics such as how different colors were obtained naturally to paint and decorate back then. The family dinner was an amazing experience and allowed us to interact with locals through our broken Spanish.
