Beautiful views of ancient pyramids. There are a number of dogs and cuddly puppies who reside in the place. They were very friendly and I hope someone looks after them.
The biggest chanllege was to climb one of the pyramides. I was almost out of breath when I reached the middle of the pyramid.
Well organised and informative. Our guide was knowledgable and easy to approach. Good value.
Our tour guide Leonardo is outstanding. The tour is also very on time. The second half of the historical city sightseeing is also nice, our tour guide in the afternoon did a great job explaining Diego Rivera's mural in the national palace.
I really enjoyed the early morning tour being that there were barely any one there besides a few families. I booked tour in late Jan, so I suggest anyone going during this time to dress appropriately as it was quite cold. Our tour guide Leonardo was very nice, patient and knowledgable. I didn't care for the restaurant at the end of the tour. I ordered a salad and to be honest, it was quite awful. If your main goal is to get as much out of Teotihuacan as you can, I think this is the tour for you.
Excellent, yet straining tour. Pick-up is very early in the morning. Once in the pyramids, the guide will walk you to the main sites. Be prepared to walk three to five kilometers in the span of three hours. Bring good walking shows. If you are coming in the summer, temperatures can be chilly, bring a good rain coat or umbrella. Don't forget your sunscreen as well. The restaurant choice for lunch was forgettable, but this portion of the tour was very good. No pushy sales pitches, informative guide, and a one in a lifetime experience seeing one of the greatest historical sites in the world. The second portion of the tour, in Mexico City's historical city center is much shorter, perhaps 90min. We visited the government palace and the guide was extremely knowledgeable in explaining Diego Rivera's murals. A real masterpiece that allows you to better understand Mexico. The main cathedral is also stunning, with its gold gilded sculpture and its leaning columns. Most buildings in the historical centers are leaning due to the sandy ground and a succession of earthquakes. Quite amazing and definitely a recommended experience.
I have been to Mexico before but have never done this tour. I loved that they were able to pick us up at the hotel! The bus for the tour was very clean and comfortable. Definitely grab some breakfast before because the gas station where they stop before the pyramids is not that great. Upon arrival, our guide was great! We learned a lot and had a great experience. The restaurant where they took us for lunch could have been more authentic. We actually passed up a small village before the restaurant where I think they should have taken us instead. It was neat trying the different Mezcal. I would not recommend that you purchase the City Sightseeing... we were very tired when we finally got back to the city and where not interested in the walking tour. Our guide for this portion was also very distracted and we made the decision to cut the tour early.
We highly recommend the Teotihuacan Pyramids Early Access part of the tour. It was the highlight of our trip to Mexico City and the tour guide Leo was amazing - well informed and a great guide! It was great to get into the pyramids early and with no crowds. Unfortunately we do not recommend the Historical City Sightseeing Tour. There was a different guide that we met after our day at the pyramids and he was very distracted on his phone most of the time, we felt rushed along, and we were also not taken into the National Palace it was listed on the itinerary. Additionally, he asked us for a tip at the end we generally do tip but we felt pressured when he asked us and he also gave us a pamphlet of his personal tour company in case we were thinking of doing other tours - we just found him very unprofessional and it was nothing like the first part of our day at the pyramids. Don't spend the extra money for the City Sightseeing and perhaps try another combination with the tour of Teotihuacan.
The first part of the tour went relatively well. The tour guide was knowledgeable and personal. The stop for lunch also went well. However, in the afternoon, our tour guide was poor. He started off my letting us know that if we were tired and wanted to cancel the tour altogether, that was okay with him. He then asked us what we wanted to see. We had no idea what there was to see. We were counting on him to show us things. We then proceeded to walk around and he just told us what he knew about any particular building or place that we happened to be standing next to. He went on and on in a really boring way, reciting off particular dates and not presenting any of it very well at all. He also left at a certain point for about 15 minutes and made us wait for him on a street corner. He also bought a hamburger because he was hungry at one point.
Yesterday we went on this tour. It was a long day but If you only have a few days in Mexico City I think it is a good way to scedule it. What didn and #39;t work at all, was using a guide who rarely speaks English on the pyramid tour!! Really I can not recommend the tour and the agency because of that..
The morning tour was good but lunch was bad- I got sick- and the store where we did the tequila tasting- we are still fighting if you buy something make sure you check your credit card receipt before you sign even if they tell you to hurry! and the afternoon City tour was a disaster! We didn't start where the tour was supposed to and our guide could hardly speak English! We have taken many Viator tours around the world and we have never had such an awful experience! If Viator has contracted your tour out to AMIGO Tours don't go!!!!!!
