What To Expect

After morning hotel pickup by private vehicle, travel with your guide to Mexico City’s Tlatelolco, formerly part of the capital of the Aztec empire. Learn the history behind the pre-Columbian and modern buildings that stand side-by-side.

Continue to the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe (Basilica de Guadalupe), one of the most visited places in the Catholic world. Hear about the miracles attributed to the Virgin of Guadalupe, and the importance it holds in Mexican culture.

A short drive later, arrive at Teotihuacan, aka the ‘City of the Gods.’ Walk about the main landmarks, including the Avenue of the Dead, the palace of Quetzalpapalotl, as well as the Sun, Moon, and Quetzalcoatl pyramids. Make your way to the top of the Sun Pyramid for panoramic views.

After Teotihuacan, your in-the-know guide takes you to a local restaurant for a delicious lunch. Your tour ends with drop-off back at your hotel.

Traveler Tips

This tour is worth it for those wanting a personalized pace to your tour.
I would skip the artisan area as it is too long unless you have unlimited time.
The tour may seem more expensive than other however I would not hesitate to reccomend this tour to anyone, it was well worth it.

Great private tour
Puht_D, May 2023
The driver, Victor, and the tour guide, Sergio, were great. They were patient and explained things to us clearly. I recommend to anyone who wants a great tour.
History Gem

Mariana is the best; we have never come across such a pleasant and friendly tour guide in my entire life as you. The information she provided us with during our trips has been instrumental in understanding the true essence of the wonderful Mexican history and locations we visited.
Visit to the pyramid

Teotihuacan tour-Amazing
JohnL, Apr 2023
Really enjoyed the private tour given by Roberto. We were not rushed and got to stop and see all the sites. Stopped for lunch and enjoyed the mariachis. Would definitely choose this tour if I was in Mexico City .
10/10 Private Guide!
Hailey_M, Apr 2023
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed having a private guide during our trip to Teotihuacan. Aside from the impressive amount of knowledge that our guide Carlos had, it was well worth it to have a local navigate and share more about the area. It was also nice to stop at the Guadalupe Shrine on the way back into Mexico City, as traffic is no joke! The restaurant we stopped at for lunch was also incredibly tasty, and a nice way to cool off from the pyramids before hopping back into the car.
Great tour guide and experience
Josh_H, Apr 2023
Carlos was a super great and caring tour guide. He made sure everyone was taken care of. The tour was well organized and his English was super good. Lunch was decent and had a great view of the pyramids. Would highly recommend this tour!
Wonderful day!

Great day at the pyramids
Louis_G, Apr 2023
Our guide, Ramon and driver Christian, were very professional and patient with us during our time together. Ramon was very knowledgeable and made the day very enjoyable, answered all of our questions we had about all the subjects we were interested in.
A day of amazement, friendly guides and education
Andrea_C, Apr 2023
We absolutely loved this private tour with Rosa-Maria and Eduardo. Rosa-Maria was our guide while Eduardo drove. Both were super friendly. Rosa-Maria had a wealth of knowledge. She broke down the history on our drive there so well. The trip was organized and we learned so much. Highly recommend!
Beautiful Indigenous Mexican History

Rosa María our guide and Roberto, our driver were both excellent and took good care of us. Rosa María was a wealth of information during our tour! It was a fun family day full of beautiful indigenous Mexican history.
The Perfect First Day in Mexico City

This was the most amazing tour. First of all, I called Viator and requested a number of signifcant additions to this personal tour. I asked for my wife and I to be picked up at the airport at 6 a.m. (after we ate breakfast in the airport) and, after visiting the Basilica de Guadalupe and Teotihuacan, also visit the Metropolitan Cathedral in the historical district and then get dropped off at our Condesa hotel by 4 p.m. Of course, our luggage would need to remain in the car during the tour. All of this was granted for just a small additional fee. Our guide's name was Ramon and, despite being a native Mexican, his English was incredible. His tours of all three sites were filled with tons of information and insight and he was so personable and pleasant! But it didn't stop there. After we viewed the cathedral, he walked us through downtown Mexico City with more info about the Palacio de Belles Artes, Templo Mayor, the Zocalo and the National Palace along with recommendations for other sites to see and places to eat. Yes, it sounds too good to be true. And yet there were a few more special items I wasn't expecting: With my new request of stopping in downtown Mexico City, my concerns about where we would park at each venue were doubled. I also requested that we have a car that allows all of our luggage to be conceiled. Well, guess what? Ramon wasn't the driver. He was soley the tour guide! Roberto was the driver! Yes, there was a separate driver who remained in communication with Ramon the entire time and picked us up at more convenient places than going back to where we were dropped off. Ramon continued to give us as much information about Mexico and Mexico city as we desired as he rode shotgun to Roberto. Want another little extra? The lunch that is provided was a three-course meal and included a view of the Sun Pyramid! When I told friends I was taking my wife to Mexico City, the first thing out of their mouths were usually words of caution. I kind of chuckle at this considering the U.S. cities we live by and visit are some of the most dangerous in the world, but I also do want to keep my wife safe anywhere we go. Can you imagine a safer way of start a trip than this? A Viator guide and driver escorting you around the city like they are your best friends. The rest of our trip continued to be amazing after we said a fond farewell to Ramon and Roberto. We visited a variety of museums (Anthropology, Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Templo Mayor) the Chapultapec Castle, parks across the city and numerous restaurants. I would say the visit reminded me of our trip to Rome. Of course, the flight from Chicago to Mexico City is a fraction of the cost of flying to Europe. And then we flew to Puerto Vallarta for four days! FYI, the cost of flying to and from a beach somewhere from Mexico City is like $100 or less! From the bottom of our hearts, Ramon and Roberto, thank you for getting this amazing trip off to such a perfect start.
A great trip!
Alyssa_P, Apr 2023
A wonderful trip for my husband, myself and our 6 month old. Our guide was very accommodating of us, and since it was a private tour we were able to go at our pace. We had a wonderful day and would happily send family and friends on this tour.
Ronald_F, Mar 2023
Our guide Arturo was great. Very informative experience. Loved all our stops especially the pyramids and artisans.
Must do tour!
Jenna_M, Mar 2023
Where to begin? Veronica was AMAZING and our driver, Victor, was so kind and drove thoughtfully through some pretty heavy traffic. Veronica not only knew her history-she was a solid storyteller and engaged my tweens and teens. We loved her sense of humor and took us to a few historical sites I hadn’t seen before. We didn’t feel rushed at all, she took really good pictures, but we also stayed on scheduled. My family has left the tour with a deeper appreciation of Mexican history—which is saying something as I’m a history teacher and my kids have attended a Spanish bilingual school with an emphasis on history. Oh and she also gave us more tips with visiting the city that have proved really helpful. I highly highly recommend this tour as its foundational to understand the Mexican psyche and roots of its rich cultural traditions. Oh and Veronica is funny—-did I mention that?
Great trip.
Cathy_C, Mar 2023

Rolando_F, Feb 2023
Mariana was very well informed and a very nice person. The car we traveled in was clean and spacious. The driver was careful and courteous. Lunch was pleasant.
Fascinating day of history
Karen_M, Feb 2023
Ramon was a wealth of knowledge and we loved our journey out to the pyramids. I’ve wanted to see them since I was a child, so this was the one thing I was looking forward to. We also visited the Basilica which is important to our family and can’t thank him enough for taking care of me and my parents. Thank you!
Bad lunch
Rustin_C, Feb 2023
I loved our tour guide but hated the weird stop for lunch. The food was not very good or interesting and then we had to sit through sales pitch to try to get us to buy over priced obsidian. I'm sure the tour company gets a kick back for bringing people there. Not a fan Tour guide and driver were great though.
