Our guide was great, super knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. Teotihuacan is incredible, definitely worth the time and money. Early access is the way to go in my opinion because you miss major crowds. The food stop for lunch after was really good too. Bring lots of water and be prepared for a lot of stair climbing
