What people are saying about Pyramid of the Moon

My mom and I liked it a lot, expert guides on the subject I highly recommend, they gave us the opportunity to store the suitcase on the bus since it was our last day and from there we would go to the airport, just one observation because they were cigars foreigners and only us Mexicans assigned us different guides so everyone was happy in the group and we alone apart, we felt discriminated against in our own country hahaha since it was clear that the main guide was the one who brought the gringos, I suggest they do not separate the groups since if the distinction was felt, suddenly everyone knew each other because of the coexistence and we alone, having been separated, lived differently, but the rest was beautiful to see the pyramids and the treatment except for what was mentioned was excellent, thank you.

We dithered about going to Teotihuacan on our own but I’m so glad we booked this trip! We loved visiting Tlatelolco first and there were amazing views of the city from Guadalupe Shrine. Lily was a fantastic tour guide, engaging and friendly. She gave us lots of information but also allowed for a good amount of free time too. The rest of the team were also great. It is a long day trip but great to fit a few different locations in without feeling too rushed at each place. Make sure you take some snacks as we ended up having lunch at about 4pm! Thanks for a great tour! We highly recommend!

Great way to get to know Mexican history. Guides were awesome, answered all questions, and were very friendly. Highly recommend it to anyone looking for a day trip where they don't have to worry about anything.

Wonderful experience! Our guide was very knowledgeable. We had a great time. Highly recommend booking this tour if you want to see the pyramids.

Our guide was absolutely delightful, and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Ligia!
