Great overview of Teotihuacan
Tamara_S, Jun 2023
Eduardo was a great tour guide. He did an excellent job providing an overview of the area and we really enjoyed seeing the sites.
Worth the money!
Sabina_M, Jun 2023
Yosafat was a smart and personable guide. We learned a lot! We were happy to be in an air conditioned vehicle.
Perfect Half-Day Tour
Julie_S, Jun 2023
Noah was a great guide. Picking us up at the hotel, providing context for our visit, and pointing out interesting perspectives. We got a lot out of the visit and had a great time!
Great family tour
Kelly_K, Jun 2023
Tour guide Edith was amazing. Answered all our 8 year old’s questions thoughtfully. We would recommend her to friends
Best way to see Teotihuacan!
Michelle_G, Jun 2023
We had the best time with Jerry and Paco. They were on time picking us up at our Airbnb in Mexico City. We then drove in a nice, private van to Teotihuacan where we started our tour. Jerry handled the tickets and we walked the whole way through the ruins, learning so much along the way. Jerry was friendly and knowledgable and we had the best time!
Highly Recommend!!!

Loved this tour of Teotihuacan. Tour guide Yosafat texted me the day before to confirm pickup location and arrived on time. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. He also brought extra bottles of water for us which was a step above what I was expecting. We really appreciated having him all to ourselves so that we could ask as many questions as we wanted and were also able to set the pace of the tour. This enabled us to stop for pics whenever we desired and he was kind enough to take multiple pics of us as well. Yosafat came fully prepared with a notebook full of photos/descriptions of the sites that enabled us to get a broader understanding and appreciation of the ruins. He then took us to tequila/mezcal tasting. Before going, I'll admit I was convinced that I wasn't going to find it interesting and that I certainly wasn't going to be buying any of it. Well, I ended up really enjoying the stop. I learned a lot about the agave plant and saw how the liquid is extracted. I also discovered that there are many variations of mezcal, even ones that are flavored/sweetened and easy to sip. I ended up buying 2 bottles. I should stress that I did not feel in any way pressured to do so by the seller. I simply liked the uniqueness of the products there. Overall, great trip that I'd readily recommend to anyone.
Great half day !
Taylor_B, May 2023
Hector was phenomenal!! Love and i highly recommend the private tour. Much more into the calm private vibe. He educated us and was very chill fun vibe ! It was just my boyfriend and i and we were very happy!
Amazing trip back in time to 200BC
Michael_K, May 2023
Noah picked us up at our hotel and off we went. We had an amazing day at the Teotihuacan. We avoided most of the crowds and Noah had all kinds of great info to share, including pics, apps, and documents to help us better understand life back in 200BC. Great trip.
Wonderful Guide
Adam_W, May 2023
Our tour with Hector was phenomenal. I can comfortably say he was one of the best guides I've ever had, and I travel a lot. Hector was super communicative before the trip to confirm everything. He was punctual and made great conversation in the car on the way to Teotihuacan. At the site, and was enthusiastic about our learning, but also balanced it with a disclaimer that if we weren't interested in something we could walk off and look around as he was speaking. But we spent a lot of time asking him questions, and Hector was was eager to answer them. We just had a very light, pleasant, but informative morning with Hector. It was out best activity during our trip to Mexico City. Thanks again Hector for the wonderful tour!
Definitely recommend
Frank_C, May 2023
Fantastic tour! The guide was Marlene and she was so helpful and knowledgeable. Getting there early was good, before it got too hot. The pyramids are amazing! Back to the hotel by 1.45, perfect amount of time.
Great experience
Stefany_P, May 2023
The tour was great! Marlene was super knowledgeable and engaging. Definitely a must see if you’re visiting Mexico City
Ivan was extremely...
Jackie_C, May 2023
Ivan was extremely friendly throughout the entire day. He was very knowledgeable and helped us learn about the pyramids in detail. The accommodations was also great - he provided cold water and soft drinks for us in the car.
Fantastic and informative tour
Justin_B, May 2023
Had a great time on this tour to teotihuacan! We were met right on time and made it to Teotihuacan before a lot of the larger tours. Our guide Gerardo was very friendly and knowledgeable, and it was great to experience the site with someone who knew so much about the historical significance, as well as the history of how the site was excavated and how it came to be in its current state.
Educational Tour of Teotihuacan
John_S, May 2023
We wanted to express our heartfelt thanks for the incredible tour Noah provided of the Teotihuacan pyramids. His knowledge and enthusiasm made the experience truly unforgettable. His passion for the history and culture of Teotihuacan was evident, and his captivating storytelling brought the ancient city to life (sometimes in graphic detail). Weleft with a deeper understanding and appreciation for its significance. Additionally, his friendly and accommodating nature made the entire tour comfortable and enjoyable. From patiently answering our questions to ensuring we had ample time to explore, he went above and beyond to make the experience memorable. We feel incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to explore Teotihuacan under his guidance.
Perfect trip to the Pyramids!
Lisa_W, May 2023
It was so interesting to see how the paint colors were made. And Hector was great explaining in detail all about the pyramids and their history! We really enjoyed the tour!!
Guide was great, going in...
Catherine_G, May 2023
Guide was great, going in the morning was the way to do it! Much nicer than going with a big group we thought.
Excellent tour, lots to learn and see!
Alessandra_M, May 2023
Highly recommend this tour. Our guide Aldo was super knowledgeable and friendly, and everything ran super smoothly. As two women travelers we felt safe at all times. Would definitely recommend to anyone, this is a must-do visit when in CDMX.
A must see!
Piyushkumar_R, May 2023
Such an amazing experience! Highly recommend especially if you love to learn about the history and culture of Mexico!
Well worth it
Nicola_W, May 2023
Our tour guide was brilliant. Helpful, informative and very considerate. I would highly recommend him and the tour
Colleen_W, May 2023
I am so glad we did this! Our guide was so informative and made the site come alive. Getting picked up at our hotel also made it easier to visit, but the standout was the the guide.
Great private tour.
Verenice_O, May 2023
Ivan our tour guide was EXTREMELY knowledgeable. As soon as we were picked up from our hotel he started giving us a brief history so that once we got there we would have some sort of information. He was nice, patient and did not rush the tour.
Wonderful guide!
Danielle_P, May 2023
Gerardo Is such a knowledgeable guide with a contagious enthusiasm for what he studies and he is super helpful and kind. We had a great time and out of all the tours I went on during my trip, I only felt compelled to review this one as I was very satisfied with my guide and my experience.
Great half day trip!
Christina_L, May 2023
My husband and I really enjoyed this tour! Hector was a great guide and very knowledgeable. Everything about the experience was seamless: easy booking process, pick up at our hotel, the tour itself, and drive back. The only thing that felt a bit commercial was the stop at the end, where we did a few tequila and mezcal tastings, and learned about agave and obsidian. We didn’t mind it, but worth mentioning.
Not to be missed.
Leanne_M, May 2023
The site is incredible. Far larger than we expected. Arriving early was great because we missed the crowds. Take a hat!
Great day and the tour made it easy.
Becky_A, May 2023
Our guide Noah did a great job, he was very knowledgeable about Teotihuacan. We enjoyed our day and it was very flexible.
Great Day at Teotihuacan
Adam_H, May 2023
Marlene was a great tour guide! She was extremely personable and shared her love of history with us! This was the best was to explore the pyramids and understand the history that we were walking through.
Memorable Travel Experience
Renee_G, May 2023
Where do we begin? If you’re contemplating visiting the Pyramids of Teotihuacan but unsure wether or not you should…do it!!! This private tour was worth every penny. Edith was not only knowledgeable and attentive but the location itself is a sight worth seeing. Having no knowledge of the history of Teotihuacan and Mexican culture, Edith made it easy to understand and relate to. She truly was the most incredible guide and you can tell she loves her job! This site is deemed a Unesco site for a reason and goes on forever! It’s an experience we will never forget.
Great guide
Ilias_A, May 2023
Our tour guide was Fermin, we took the private tour. His english was very good and he was very knowledgeable. We did the tour and the workshop afterwards. The workshop was not that interesting
Worth every penny, best way to see Teotihuacan
Jennifer_B, May 2023
This tour was excellent! The guide, Yosafat, was on-time, friendly, and knowledgeable. We were able to ask questions, take photos, etc.—didn’t feel rushed at all. The only thing I would change would be for the van to have shoulder belts (it had just lap belts). A little concerning since you’re going on the highway to reach Teotihuacan. But the driver was safe and they had bottled water in a cooler, so that was nice. Very much appreciate Yosafat and the tour! Highly recommend. We would have missed a LOT by not having a guide. It was well worth it. Just bring sunscreen, hats, snacks and water—and comfortable shoes because it’s a ton of walking with no shade. I wasn’t expecting to climb anything since I read the Pyramid of the Moon and Pyramid of the Sun are closed for climbing…but we did get to climb a few smaller ones that were quite steep, so definitely wear supportive shoes (no flip flops)!
Esther_V, May 2023
We had a great day with Hector. He was so informative and made the visit extremely worthwhile. Learned so much and enjoyed walking the beautiful area. The mezcal tasting was a fun way to end the experience. HIGHLY RECOMMEND—especially Hector.
