The tour is very well organized - it is perfect if you want to fit an overview of several landmarks and if you are looking for a solid -not overwhelming- historical context. If you are looking for in-depth historical explanations this tour might be more on the ‘touristy’ side- but still very enjoyable and well put together. My only disappointment was the tequila tasting- we were offered watered down samples!

I am absolutely amazed about the friendly approach and flexibility of the staff, so huge shout out for them, the tour was great, I had a really good time, guide was on the point, learned a lot, the free times were enough and the restaurant was mind-blowing. Thank you very much!

I chose this activity because it was one of the shorter activities that seemed to focus on the pyramids (or temples), and it turned out to be exactly that. After pick up at the hotel, we made a brief stop to the Plaza de las Tres Culturas and then directly to Teotihuacán. The guide, Eduardo, was very knowledgeable and charismatic. He made the transition seamlessly between English and Spanish for the entire day, which was very helpful. I would definitely recommend this tour. Helpful tip - the ticket options made it seem as though the lunch stop was optional so I did not purchase a ticket that included lunch. However, the bus made a lunch stop for everyone anyway (even if you did not have lunch included), and there we paid cash for the buffet. Just something to consider when purchasing the ticket.
