Great Tour!
Had a great time! Doing a private tour was definitely worth it! Our guide was super knowledgeable and our driver was always there on time when we needed him! We enjoyed walking and learning about the pyramids and got some great shots! We also learned about the obsidian mines before lunch, yes it’s probably a tourist trap but we really enjoyed it and even purchased two pieces. I like that they gave us certificates with our purchase authenticating the obsidian. Also, the lunch spot we went to had a view of the pyramids!!! We finished the day at the Guadalupe Shrine and it was breathtaking and I learned so much about the culture and religion of the indigenous and the Mexican people. Thank you!

THE best way to visit Teotihuacan and the Basilica of the Virgin of Guadalupe!
Sep. 2021
Carlos, my guide, was amazing. He was friendly, knowledgeable, fun, and completely focused on my experience. He guides you with enthusiasm and the pride of sharing the history of ancient sites and holy sites. He allowed me to alter the itinerary to ensure I had all of my preferences met. And, our driver, Juan, was fantastic. He drove safely and expertly navigated the traffic of Mexico City. I can't think Carlos and Juan enough for making my day wonderful.

Precessional and Friendly Guides
We had a great experience. We were picked up exactly on time. Driver and tour guide were friendly and professional. We had our 9-year-old with us. She was entranced. Our guide was very knowledgeable. We stopped for lunch and a tour of a small cooperative where they make some things with obsidian. We chose to skip the third stop since we were tired, but thoroughly happy with our experience.

These folks are the BEST! Picked up at the airport right on time, took me to my hotel, then pick up for tours on two days. Got a wonderful indepth understanding of area, the people, the history and helped me plan the best times and places to go. Cannot say enough good things about their crew - Carlos, Christian, Luis, Juan and Victoria. If you go to Mexico City, do yourself a favor and use them. A great guide makes all the difference in the world.

A MUST DO with Veronica
Jun. 2021 • Couples
Make sure you book this tour with Veronica! She was knowledgeable and super friendly...very thorough at answering all the questions we had! We saw so many historic landmarks and Veronica educated us each step of the way. You can sense her passion and we appreciate her enthusiasm throughout the tour. She was the absolute best!

This tour is a great way to get a full day of learning about the rich history of the Teotihuacan and the old/new church of Santa Maria de Guadalupe. The Tlatelolco was just a nice bonus. A MUST DO if you are in Mexico City...we had no idea going in the tour just how deep and fascinating the culture and history are here.

Side note: we are glad we did the tour too BEFORE going to the anthropology museum...the museum ties everything you learn and see on the tour together with the artifacts and statues you will see and read about.

Amazing and beyond expectations
Apr. 2021 • Family
Our tour guide Arturo and our driver, also named Arturo, were excellent host and guide. He gave us the history of the Mexican country that helped us understand the pyramids and basilica of Guadalupe. They never let us out of their site and we never felt rushed. Having 3 young kids with my wife and I, they made sure we were well taken care of the entire time, Arturos depth of knowledge was much appreciated. This is a must do tour if visiting Mexico City.

Can I rate more than excellent!
Mar. 2021
The history of Teotihuacan was unknown to me before this tour. It was very interesting, and made more so by the information provided by Jose Luis, my tour guide. He was so fabulous and knowledgeable! I cannot recommend this tour enough. The guide was very flexible, the meal was delicious, and the Guadalupe Shrine was amazing! We were able to stay for Mass! If you are Catholic, I highly recommend staying for the Mass. I will definitely come back with other family members and take them on this tour!

BEST TOUR!
Mar. 2021
Fantastic private tour with Carlos (our guide) and Arturo (our driver). A whole day experience, we started at 9AM with a pickup at our hotel in the historic center of Mexico City. Carlos spoke impeccable English and was incredibly. knowledgable, and both he and Arturo were very COVID conscious as well.

We started off going to the ruins of Teotihuacan, and then stopped at a local artisan coop to learn about the agave plant and its distillates, as well as obsidian and silver making. WOW! What artistry. Definitely recommend budgeting some extra money to take home some beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces of artwork. We then stopped for lunch, and then went to the Shrine of Guadalupe. We finished off at Zona Arqueológica de Tlatelolco, an incredible set of Aztec temples right inside Mexico City.

Well worth the cost, this was a once-in-a-lifetime experiencex.
