Traveller Tips

Its less than an hour away from Mexico City, great history, awesome to climb the pyramids and then go to La Gruta (the cave restaurant) for lunch.
Because it was a private tour, we were picked up at our hotel which was important because the trip began at 7:00am.

Fermin was an excellent and knowledgable tour guide. As an anthropologist he was able to explain interesting facts about how to date item as well as more general information about Teotihuacan. Prompt pickup and safe driving.

Started our Teotihuacán private tour from entrance #1. As we continue walking towards the Avenue of the Dead the views only get better and better. Our guide Claudia was very knowledgeable and kept us on schedule from start to finish. We opted for the Spanish speaking tour and it didn’t disappoint. Bring comfortable walking shoes. Covered is best due to the ants, vegetation growth during rainy season. Also bring water and perhaps a hat. Our lunch stop was great. Cold beverages and clean accommodations. Mole and rice was tasty.
A++ Tour of Teotihuacan
Michelle_R, Aug 2023
We had the best tour of Teotihuacan. There were 10 family members - with children as young as 2. Pick-up and drop-off was directly at our AirBnb location in Condesa. The van was clean and comfortable. The tour guides were extremely friendly and knew so much of the history of Teotihuacan. It was a great experience. The schedule was also flexible, allowing us to stop for coffees in the morning and fresh fruit on our way home.
Excellent Adventure!

Ernesto was wonderful! The tour of Teotihuacan was even better than I imagined. There were things there I did not know were there. Ernesto was thorough and a great guide! He shared wonderful informative about the long history of the area. He explained the cultural, religious and economic history as well. I highly recommend this private tour over any bus tour crammed with tons of people. Arriving early was also a major plus! Very few people were there when we arrived. I was able to take many photographs. Thank you for the wonderful memories. If you’re lucky enough to get Ernesto as your guide, you will not be disappointed! Hasta luego.
Loved it!

My family had a wonderful experience on this tour. Monse was patient and understanding with our two energetic boys (8yr and 5yr) and kept them engaged the whole time. We learned so much about Teotihuacan because of her. Highly recommend this tour.
Informative, Enjoyable, and Family Friendly!
Deborah_G, Aug 2023
This was an amazing tour of Teotihuacan. Gerardo was a wealth of information, and had a kind, friendly presence making the information accessible and interesting to our 7 and 9 year olds. He had such an excitement about the area and shared his knowledge in a very engaging way. We loved getting to see the pyramids and learning about the underground spaces in the walk leading up to the Pyramid of the Moon. As far as logistics were concerned, we appreciated that Gerardo asked us if we’d prefer to just go back to the city to grab lunch and to skip the obsidian workshop, which were things that made sense for our crew. Communication with the company was great from the very start when we first bought tickets. The company followed up the day before our tour and then the morning of, we received a text about an hour prior to our hotel pickup, and then when the van was outside. I’m a person who is often a little wary of tour situations, preferring to explore areas on my own. I never would have learned what I learned on this tour that way and it was a very enjoyable situation, so I’m very glad we did it. Top notch. :) Highly recommend!
Can't beat the flexibility of a private tour
Anonymous, July 2023
Our guide, Monse, was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. We enjoyed learning about the ancient culture and soaking in the awesomeness of Teotihuacan.
Excellent! Excellent!
Delia_P, July 2023
This was a excellent five star tour! Our guide and driver, Pepe, were very professional. I cannot say enough about our tour guide. As a professor and current PhD student, he knew so much about everything. I learned so much about our tour. I highly recommend this experience. I cannot wait to bring my husband to do this one together. Worth every penny.
Gerardo is the best!
Chelsea_R, July 2023
Gerardo is a great tour guide, pleasant to speak to and extremely knowledgeable. He was very flexible as it was just me, my boyfriend, and best friend on the tour. Not only did Gerardo teach us about the past, but he also told us about Mexico in the present. We appreciated his expertise and encourage everyone who is thinking about it to BOOK this TOUR!
Great trip to Teotihuacan
Martin_B, June 2023
Great tour with Ernesto to the wonderful ancient city of Teotihuacan. Early start to beat the heat and crowds and then a walk around the cities to see the temples and residences of the city. Actually three cities one built on top of the next. Finished with lunch at La Gruto which was a unique dining experience in a grotto. Ernesto was a great guide
Abigail_R, June 2023
Monse was an exceptional tour guide! She was extremely knowledgeable and we felt very well looked after. 10/10!!

Tatiana_K, June 2023
It was a great tour! So informative and Ernesto was a wonderful guide and explained the history and archeology so well. He personalized the tour to our preferences. Plus, we got there early to stay out of the sun as much as possible. Highly recommend!
Best Teotihuacán tour - we had a great time

Teotihuacán tour
Hyonggun_C, May 2023
My husband and I had a private tour with our guide, Pepe who is knowledgeable and resourceful about the history. We learned about the Teotihuacán civilization and enjoyed very much the culture tour with Pepe.
Five stars for Monse!!
Thomas_H, May 2023
We had an absolutely amazing time during our tour with Monse. From pickup to drop off and everything in between, Monse was kind, accommodating and knowledgeable. We’ve done many tours in various countries around the world, and few guides go out of their way to educate you the way that she does. This was the highlight of our trip to Mexico City! Our only recommendation is to bring your walking shoes and water - as the site is even larger than you might imagine.
Perfect private tour of Teotihuacan with outstanding guide

Absolutely fabulous private tour with Tekpan Tours. I traveled with my 2 grown children to Teotihuacan in a private car driven by our guide Frank. Communication with Tekpan was seamless, and Frank showed up on time in front of our apartment. On the way we picked up snacks and water, and discussed history, culture and art. Frank was an outstanding guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and gracious, he presented information clearly and concisely both about the history and nuances of the culture. He was patient with our questions and photo stops as well. We ended up having a rich and relaxed experience -- it was a perfect day and a highlight of our trip. Kudos to Tekpan and Frank for providing us with an exceptional and meaningful day.

Our Tekpan Tour guide was very informative and gave us the tour we wanted: lots of walking, great information and very flexible about his time. Wonderful!
A Must Do
Niti_R, Apr 2023
This was an amazing tour with my husband and our 2 kids. Ernesto was the perfect guide as he has a wealth of knowledge from being a former archeologist himself! I can’t think of a more perfect tour guide! It’s amazing to see everything that was excavated and there is still so much yet to be discovered. Go on this tour you won’t regret it! Lots of walking so wear comfy shoes.
