Teotihuacan best tour guide - Ivan!
Daniel_T, Mar 2023
Ivan was a great tour guide! Showed us around Teotihuacan and explained the whole story of the place, then answered our questions. Very friendly, polite and caring! Don't hesitate!

Teotihuacan Trip
JOY_T, Mar 2023
Ivan was amazing. We really enjoyed our trip and explaining each site. I highly recommend booking him as your guide.
Helpful and informative
Allison_G, Mar 2023
Noah was great- good communication before the day, even suggesting a slightly earlier departure time to better avoid crowds. He navigated the site beautifully, and had great pictures and other resources to better explain some of the sites.
10/10 would go again!
Rodrigo_C, Mar 2023
Noe, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable about Teotihuacán! Picked us up right on time, and he even stopped at a little shop so we could find some mementos for our trip. 10/10 would go again!
Hector is great
Suraj_J, Mar 2023
The great history and everything else was great too with Hector. He was wonderful and so knowledgeable
Teotihaucan brought to life
Cam_B, Mar 2023
Hector was an exceptional guide for our tour of Teotihaucan. Communication with the tour company was excellent and Hector picked us up promptly near our Airbnb. He was so friendly and interesting to visit with during our drive of about 90 min to the pyramids. At Teotihaucan, he brought the place to life for us with his wealth of knowledge and passion about Mesoamerican history and culture. We learned so much and enjoyed our time with him tremendously.
Best tour guide..
Hazel_W, Mar 2023
Hector, our guide, was fantastic. All three of us are history nerds, and Hector was fantastic - he answered our questions with expertise and humor. It was one of the highlights of our time in Mexico City (and there were many.....).
Must Do!
Stephanie_H, Mar 2023
Booking this private tour is such a great option-don’t sleep on the opportunity to view this overwhelming site with a professional, highly-knowledgeable, and engaging private guide such as Hector. His passion for his topic makes this a wonderful experience. The visuals aids are very helpful in taking in all of the information—and it’s a lot! This site is spectacular and awe-inspiring. Don’t waste your day in a group, spending precious time driving around the city picking up others and hoping they are on time. Just spend the money and have a wonderful time interacting and learning from a local. There is a reason this company has so many 5 star reviews.
Very enjoyable trip
Nicolas_B, Mar 2023
Our guide was very pleasant, patient, knowledgeable, and punctual. Took us sightseeing, shopping, and lunch. The transportation Van was clean and comfortable.
Christopher_B, Mar 2023
Ramon was the best ,so informed. Fantastic experience Ivan is a total pro. Would recommend to anyone
Fabulous tour of the pyramids!
Susan_R, Mar 2023
We had a wonderful tour of the pyramids with Ivan. He made it very comfortable and easy for us. He picked us up at our Airbnb and dropped us off there at the end of the day. He was completely flexible with the tour schedule based on our energy level. He was very knowledgable about the pyramids and their history. It was a delightful half day tour!
Memorable Trip to Teotihuacan
Claudia_G, Mar 2023
Ivan was a great guide! He is super nice and very knowledgable. Even before we got to Teotihuacan he told us stories about the surrounding area and we spoke about life in Mexico City. We were so happy that we had decided to take a private tour as we learned so much from him. The site is impressive but what made it more memorable were the stories that Ivan shared that brought the site to life. Thank you again so much. Would highly recommend this tour. You will not regret it.
Wonderful trip!
Megan_S, Mar 2023
Hector was a fabulous guide. He was warm, accommodating, and incredibly knowledgeable. He brought to life the experience with photos and drawings to make the history come to life. We were traveling with our 5mo daughter and he was understanding of the need to take breaks to feed and care for her and never made us feel rushed. Would highly recommended this tour to anyone!
Great tour!
Alicia_F, Mar 2023
Geraldo gave us an excellent tour. His background as a historian was much appreciated as he was able to provide historical context and details. Highly recommend Geraldo.
Teotihuacán Private Tour with Esther
Kristina_O, Mar 2023
My husband and I had a wonderful private tour of Teotihuacán with Esther. She was extremely knowledgeable, warm and considerate. The heat and altitude are factors that need to be considered and Esther consistently checked to see how we were feeling. She is full of knowledge not only about Teotihuacán, but about all of Mexican history as well, which gave us a much more comprehensive understanding. I highly recommend having Esther as your private guide. I would also like to mention Osvaldo, our driver who was great as well.
Miguel was very...
Alexandra_R, Mar 2023
Miguel was very knowledgeable and kind. He entertained all of our questions with enthusiasm. I learned so much more about Teotihuacan, even though I’ve been there once before. I’d highly recommend Miguel to be your guide. And being picked up in the city in a private car made everything even easier.
At our own pace
Katherine_M, Mar 2023
Our guide, Noe, was awesome. He took very good care of us. He was very communicative and made sure we had water and access to bathrooms. Noe also helped us find a place for lunch when we were ready to eat. He had a lot of knowledge about the archeological site and brought an iPad plus a book to illustrate what he was talking about. He also had us compare the drinks of Pulque, Mezcal and Tequila. We learned all about the many uses for the agave plant that the ancient people had. Overall the tour was informative and fun. It was so nice to have a private guide so we could go at our own pace.
Great trip to Teotihuacan
Patrick_C, Mar 2023
I went on a personal tour with a friend of Teotihuacan with Gerardo. Gerardo was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. He and Felix, our driver, were very accommodating of our needs and catered the trip to our liking. Highly recommend!
Friendly guide, amazing day! One of our Mexico City highlights!
Tonya_G, Mar 2023
Fantastic day! Christian (our guide) and Jesus (our driver), were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful in all ways. Arrived on time (we actually were running late, and Christian was polite and kind about that) , we asked if we could stop for cafe/snack/bano along the way, which we did (we bought them both cafe). Car was clean, AC, comfortable. Christian had good humor, lots of history knowledge, very informative guide. First stop was silversmiths/obsidian artists where we tasted pulque and tequila and had shopping opportunities. Then onto Teotihuacán. The size is impressive and the ruins are very much intact that you can see how it might’ve been to be there. There is a half way point where some tourists stop, I say go on. Get the whole experience of the place. I definitely suggest a hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, long sleeves, decent walking shoes, bring water. I think our day was 4 hours in total, we asked all our questions and Christian had answers. Comprehensive and amazing day. It was indulgent for us to book a private tour, but ultimately we got to take our time and never felt rushed nor slowed down by a large group. Definitely worthwhile.
