Great enthusiastic guide...
Eric_R, Mar 2023
Great enthusiastic guide Javier. Excellent group with us, from all over the world. The sights themselves are inspiring and thought provoking.
Great tour
Theodore_S, Mar 2023
The tour guide was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and helpful. The site itself was beautiful and awe inspiring.
A great experience and feeling safe all the time.
Blanca_C, Feb 2023
Alejandro , the tour guide waited for us in from of El Palacio de Bellas Artes under a pink umbrella. He is a great guy. He speaks English very well ,has a lot of knowledge of the area and explains the history since the beginning so it's easy to understand the challenges and changes the people that lived there went through. I definitely recommend this small group tour if you have the time.
Worst tour ever
Jeffrey_W, Feb 2023
Simply, a terrible tour operator. We were asked to meet at Belle Arte. Then walk 3 blocks to a bus station. Then wait 45 minutes for a city bus. Then a 30 minute trip to a bus station. Then a 20 minute wait for another bus. Then a city bus to the site. At the site, a pretty poor tour. Then another bus to CDMX. Then a subway to Bella Arte. There was no communication about the travel plans. We wastes 4 hours on or waiting for buses for what should have been a 40 minute trip to the site. The worst tour I have ever been on.
Great tour. Taking public...
Diego_d, Jan 2023
Great tour. Taking public transport was a little weird but useful. The guide was knowledgable and had great English.
Teotihuacan experience

I had an amazing time. I...
Anna_E, Jan 2023
I had an amazing time. I wouldn’t visit Teotihuacan without a guide and outs was phenomenal. Informative, friendly, and gave us plenty of time to rest and shop.
This is the team for the job!
Daniel_I, Dec 2022
The Warrior (our tour guide’s nickname) and his team went above and beyond to make this tour enjoyable and memorable. I recommend them to anyone interested in a Teotihuacán foot tour. The entire experience felt authentic from beginning to end, from taking us on public transportation like the locals for to sticking around afterwards to offer recommendations on other authentic local experiences. This team of tour guides is PASSIONATE about Teotihuacán and their culture and they leave you feeling inspired. 100% rating from me!
Expert guide and well-run tour
Amy_V, Dec 2022
Can’t imagine visiting these temples without a guide, and Warrior is an exceptional one. His knowledge, enthusiasm, and friendliness brought the site and its people to life for us. His tour is well-run and we always felt like we were in great hands. We appreciated the simple focus on seeing the pyramids without a sit-down lunch at a restaurant (we all brought our own snacks and water) and side stops to other places, like other tours do. And taking public transport works well for this day trip! Overall I’d definitely recommend this tour to others.
Not worth it when using public transport
Aimee_C, Dec 2022
While the tour of the pyramids itself was very interesting and good. The tour was pretty disorganised. We met at 8am but it was 11am before we were at teotihuacan because the buses were not booked in advance so our guide had to queue for a long time to get a ticket. Also, tickets to teotihuacan were not pre booked so again we were waiting around while he stood in the long queue to buy the tickets. Getting back was a very uncomfortable bus, we were standing on the bus for an hour and it was extremely hot and bumpy. This journey wouldn’t be safe if you had a baby or were old/needed assistance. Yes, Javier was a good tour guide, but the disorganisation of the tour made it not worth it. I would advise paying the 10 Euro extra and getting a tour with private transport and pre arranged tickets.
Very worthwhile
MARK_O, Dec 2022
Outstanding guide(Waryor). Very good experience. Just enough explanations, but not too much. Totally different than Egypt Ian pyramids. Had a chance to take subway and busses.
Two thumbs up
Raymond_B, Nov 2022
Waryior was a great tour guide! Informative fun and kind. We would book a tour with this company and guide again!
Highly recommend
Sonya_P, Nov 2022
Warryo was an excellent guide and provided lots of useful info about the area, taking public transportation, as well as fun facts about Teotihuacan. The demo with the local artisan also very informative. Definitely recommend!
Teotihuacan Tour a Worthwhile Adventure for All Ages
Don_R, Nov 2022
Our guide was knowledgeable, had a great sense of humour and was very fastidious with regard to looking after his “older” clientele. Travelling on local transport added an extra dimension to the tour and again, our guide kept track of us as though we were schoolchildren, counting heads every time we got on and off transportation, stopped for refreshments, shops or washrooms and never lost patience with stragglers. I would highly recommend this tour.
Epic public transportation lesson and fantastic tour of the pyramids
Felipe_R, Nov 2022
This was a really fun adventure and I’ve never done anything like that. The guide Guerrero and his assistant Adriana were so fun and helpful and kind and informative. It was amazing
Pyramid experience
Shaylee_S, Oct 2022
Experience comes with public transport which I didn’t consider. Our tour guides were kind and friendly. They worked with you pace and asked if we needed to be somewhere after to be considerate of our time. Highly recommend.
Modern lessons from ancient pyramids
Martha_L, Oct 2022
Fantastic day seeing incredible sights, meeting people from all over the world, learning from Alejandro- a great guide.
Rebecca_D, Oct 2022
Aldo was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide. He also gave us lots of tips for the rest of our stay in CDMX
Great site and great guide!
David_S, Sep 2022
Alejandro, out guide, really made this tour come to life. He shared a great deal of knowledge that gave us a great historical foundation, one that aided our joy of the Anthropology Museum as well. Highly recommend.
Fun studying Teotihuacan
Cain_R, Aug 2022
Our host, Aldo, was very knowledgeable and made the tour a fun learning experience. We learned so much we never knew regarding Teotihuacan, it’s inhabitants and history.
