What people are saying about Teotihuacán

Excellent experience! It all started on time. No delays. Proper and safe transportation. All experiences were great. The balloon ride, an experience like no other! Too impressive. Takeoff and landing were very safe. On the visit to the pyramids, our guide patiently explained to us and answered all questions. The bike ride, without waste! More than we expected. We went to some caves, to a museum and visited local artisans and bought some souvenirs. The food, breakfast, was sensational! Everything, absolutely everything, was top notch. Our hosts were great!

It was a wonderful tour, greatly organized and enriching, and fascinating of course. From the punctual pickup at my hotel, to the smooth arrival, to the first 2 hours of a fascinating tour inside Teotihuacan itself, to the next few hours of a bike ride to more fascinating ancient places around, to the visit in an amazing obsidian workshop and then the traditional meal in a restaurant that was included in the tour and costed me nothing besides the tip - everything was perfect, just perfect!

Very nice tour with a fantastic balloon flight! The guide who provided the walking tour was very friendly and had a lot to tell. Seen all kinds of different ruins. All in all it was a very long day, but well worth it!

The hot air balloon flight and walking tour of Teotihuacan were the highlights of our trip! So amazing to see the pyramids from the sky and then learn all about their history during the walking tour!

Magnificent experience, the guide explained many things to us. A very interesting and entertaining day. The driver is also excellent.
