Timely and personalized pickup. Kevin was an exceptional guide with tons of information and supplemental materials to enrich the learning for all five adults ranging in age from 23-54. It is a must see and a half day tour was exactly enough time to take in the pyramids and have a stop for tequila tasting! Kevin customized the tour perfectly.

Roberto was an amazing tour guide for our group of 6. He was a wealth of information. Seeing the pyramids with a guide as knowledgeable as Roberto allows you to appreciate the history of the people as well as the pyramids.

We spent the day with Ligia-- she was knowledgeable and very friendly! Our tour was in English, as the majority of my family does not speak Spanish. We were picked up directly from our hotel and spent the morning at the pyramids. I would recommend the private tour over the larger bus tour-- it's much more intimate, and we were able to opt out of the lunch in the afternoon to return to the city where we had already made plans.

This was the best guided tour I've ever taken, hands down. Our guide Cesar was knowledgable and friendly. He told us fascinating things about Teotihuacan that we never would have known otherwise. The site is stunning, but to have someone also explain what I'm looking at makes the experience so much more meaningful. I would strongly recommend Cesar and Viator to anyone contemplating a visit!

The trip was wonderful and our guide, Kevin, was super - upbeat, energetic, informative and patient! We had a fantastic time visiting the pyramids and we were thoroughly engaged and impressed with the expanse of the site and knowledge imparted to us. We were a group of mixed abilities and he was patient and managed us all appropriately and effectively. We truly enjoyed the day and feel it was well spent!My only recommendations would be to have a van where the windows were not covered in a wrap, making it difficult to see out beyond the front windshield. In addition, we would have loved to have seen The Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, as we understand it was on the way. Thank you for a fantastic experience!

I had a blast here. It was a perfect day with the perfect guide (Lulu). The history. The architecture. The ability to step back in time and just imagine the Teotihuacan way of life. It was all outstanding. I did my trip with Amigo Tours. The site was great, but having a good guide really makes the difference. Also, make sure you're physically able to manage the trip. LOTS of stairs (but you don't have to climb the whole thing if you don't want to).

Literally the best tour I have ever taken! Our tour guide was Roberto. He met us a few minutes early at our hotel and he was the best. He told us about himself and asked about me and where I came from. He is very knowledgeable and personable. The journey from our hotel to Teotihuacan was a bit of a distance, but Roberto told us about the neighborhoods we were passing nearby, so the trip was quite enjoyable. He answered every question we had. Once we made it to Teotihuacan, we were able to take in the site and all of its beauty because the crowds had not yet arrived. Roberto told of the history of the entire area, the people, the language and the Spanish conquest. We climbed both pyramids and learned more. I would not have made it to the top without Roberto's encouragement. He also doubles as a pretty good photographer! If you are looking for a day tour to the pyramids, this is definitely the one to take! Ask for Roberto!

It was a truly outstanding tour. The guide, Ligia, was knowledgeable, gave us plenty of time, and responded to questions with a friendly and caring attitude. This was one of the best tours I have experienced in the 49 countries I have visited. My nephew and brother were very impressed and pleased. I had invited them to learn more about the history and culture of Mexico and they were sincerely impressed. The vehicle was comfortable and she drove in a safe manner. There was nothing to be disappointed in during the tour, and it has provided many cherished memories.

Fantastic tour, our guide Lulu C. was very, very knowledgeable and a lot of fun to be with. She wanted to and did every thing she could to make our tour extra special. We are fascinated with pre columbian culture and have been on many tours of ruins over the years. This tour with Lulu was one of the top ones we experienced. Knowing that we like we like to experience the local culture and food when traveling, Lulu suggested a few of the local dishes, which we tried. A fun, special day it was. Thanks

Spent the day with a most knowledgable and informative tour guide. Thanks Lulu! Just to be clear, the tour guide is not a certified archeologist, but not sure that matters with the amount of information provided to us. I'm not sure if Viator is aware that by advertising this tour with an Archeologist, they are committing false advertising. I have yet to find a review where someone said they actually did have a tour with an Archeologist. So, if you simply must have an Archeologist, I suggest you contact the Mexico supplier and ask them specifically for an Archeologist. I tried to verify this beforehand but was unable to do so. We were picked up up at the hotel right on time and drove out to Teotihuacan area, about an hour drive. After we visited a couple of the sites, we stopped to enjoy the box lunches I had ordered for all of us including the tour guide from the hotel. That gave us the flexibility of eating what and when we desired. We returned to the hotel at a reasonable time for a little rest, since we needed some down time before the theater reservations we had that evening. Fun day. In any case our tour guide was very friendly, spoke quite good English and generally provided a wonderful experience. Since it really was a private tour, we were able to set our own timetable and were not restricted to a bus or specific tour schedule. Really worth the extra cost for a private tour!

Very good time. Informative guide, and the site was amazing. Oldest I have ever seen to date! The private tour was a great option given that time was a factor for us. It certainly costs much more than a group tour, but not having to worry about where to meet the guide made planning easier and saved us time the day of the tour. As well, we wanted to get back to DF ASAP, so we skipped lunch near the site and some other small info sessions and headed back to the city right after wrapping up at Teotihuacan. Since the tour was private, we were at liberty to shorten it as we saw fit after many hours were spent at Teotihuacan.

Our trip to Teotihuacan pyramids was phenomenal. Yes this is more expensive than taking the public bus, but we had an SUV with aircon and our very own English speaking guide to make the most of our visit there. The day before we went to the Archaeology museum in town and we kept on saying how much more it would have meant with someone explaining the significance and story behind pieces - on this trip we got just that. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and we saw a lot more than people just walking around the site. We also booked an early tour, leaving at 7am, which meant that when we got there it wasn't crawling with tourists - I would definitely recommend an early start. What the private tour also offered us was changing the day as it worked for us - we were leaving for the airport in the afternoon so we were able to change the times and other activities which we would not have been able to do on a group tour. We left 7am and we were back at the hotel at 1pm, with plenty time to pack and make it to the airport. Definitely worth the visit and the extra money - highly recommended :-

I am so glad we booked a tour of Teotihuacan with Freddie! Best tour we've ever taken! We learned so much more than would have been possible unguided, met local people and had experiences that were far beyond our expectations. Looking forward to coming back to Mexico City and booking other tours with Freddie!
