This activity will end right where it started.Hotel pick up is only available if you select the private tour.
Board a van and travel with your archeologist-guide from Mexico City to Teotihuacan, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, also known as the City of the Gods. A former Mesoamerican indigenous civilization that predates the Maya and Aztecs, Teotihuacan was once the largest city in Mexico, reaching its heyday in the 1st century CE (AD) when the Sun Pyramid was constructed.

Be one of the first visitors to arrive at the archeological park, right when it opens. In relative tranquility, wander through plazas and discover the pyramids without jostling around crowds. Enjoy taking unobstructed photos of must-see structures like the Temple of Quetzalcoatl, also known as the Temple of the Feathered Serpent, as well as the Palace of Quetzalpapalot.

Gain special insight into the complex’s less-visited monuments, including intricate murals and other architectural nuances. Hear about the latest archeological discoveries, the lifestyles of the inhabitants of this ancient city and theories behind the city’s decline.

Huff your way up the Sun Pyramid and the Moon Pyramid, the main axis of Teotihuacan. From the top, enjoy your bird’s-eye vantage point of the Avenue of the Dead, the primary road that runs through the center of the city, which separated the city and stretched from the Moon Plaza in the north to the Great Compound in the south.

After your Teotihuacan tour, hop aboard your transport and head to an obsidian workshop to learn more about the black volcanic rock native to the area. Chat with a local family and sample several liqueurs made from cactus, as well as mezcal, tequila, and pulque. For lunch, select from a variety of traditional Mexican dishes (own expense), before enjoying transport back to the central meeting point.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Zona Arqueologica Teotihuacan
Teotihuacan, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Commonly referred to as the City of the Gods, this pre-Columbian Mesoamerican city is known for its well-preserved murals, vast Avenue of the Dead and the impressive pyramids that mark its landscape. Arrive at the archeological park before the crowds in the early morning just as it begins to open its gates. Take in the serene and mystical atmosphere as your group meanders through large empty plazas in the absence of the crowds and explore the pyramids. View the murals, architectural as your guide explains their archeological significance, and tells stories about the culture that inhabited this ancient city. Climb the steep steps to the top of the Sun Pyramid and the Moon Pyramid – the principal axis of Teotihuacan. From the summit, view the lengthy Avenue of the Dead, the mile-long (2.5 km) road that divided the city and extended from the Moon Plaza in the north to the Great Compound in the south.

I got billed almost twice the amount of the tour .. I called 2 uber in the morning I g and one of them cancel my trip when I was waiting for 15min .. so I had to call another one .. I arrive on site at 7:11 and they lived without me at 7:09 .. the guy never reply to my text message... I was talking to another girl that do the tour and she call the tour guy to let hi know that I was here .. he told the lady to tell to catch a cab at another location and they will be there for me .. I did it and wait for 30 min for nothing .. so yeah pretty bad experience .. I'm not gonna book ever again with viator .. the customer service told me I can rebook for the next day with 17$ usd rebate on the tour .. but still I paid almost twice the price at the first place and they do nothing about it .. never again they scap my vibe for the whole day

Hi, we are really sorry that you did not get to do the experience. The meeting time was 6:50am, so after waiting for 20 minutes, the tour had to leave, respecting the experience for the rest of the group that was on time at the meeting place. Arriving at least 10 minutes before the meeting time as we recommend, is very important to avoid situations like this. The Uber problems, unfortunatelly are completely out of our control, and we gave you the option of rescheduling for the next day for a fee so you did not miss the opportunity to visit Teotihuacán with one of our amazing guides. We hope to see you soon in any of our tours available throughout the world. Best regards!

Jerson was an amazing, funny, and helpful tour guide. He is able to amuse you and tell you a lot of nice stories about what is wrong / right in history books as well as give you a lot of reading recommendations after your tour! I recommend you to take a bottle of tequila and take a shot every time Jerson says "Georadar Technology". Believe me, you will not be disappointed! Enjoy your tour! :)

Great tour with english and spanish speaking guides. Even if don’t pay attention, its a great experience and def worth it if visiting Mexico City. Only a hour drive by air conditioned bus. 7am trip is the way to go as you get back in town by 3pm. Beat the heat and crowds.

Josue was our tour guide and he was extremely knowledgeable. He made the whole experience even more interesting. Definitely a lot of walking so make sure to wear comfortable shoes. Prior to arriving, they make a pit stop in case you need to use the restroom and you're able to grab some drinks and snacks. The tequila tasting was also a lot of fun and being of Mexican descent I learned new things about pulque. I definitely recommend this tour.

The tour was nice and we liked Alexa (the guide) BUT we bought an Spanish tour and got a bilingual tour with English which would be okay if the explanations didn’t take twice as much time as they did so everything was a little rushed.

Seeing the site was nice however it was very delayed and the group moved very slowly. If it was more efficient it would have been more enjoyable.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Dear Amig@ Thank you for your comments, it may be that the shared tours are sometimes a little slow, due to the variety of tourists and their mobility conditions. Maybe you could consider a private tour, it can be adapted to your time and if you like to go deeper into a subject, it can be done. Do not hesitate to consider it for your next trip.

Great tour of the pyramids with our great tour guide! Great experience and story telling on this tour. We visited the entire park from the top to the bottom and got a really good history lesson.

Great experience in the pyramids
Daniel_F
, Apr 2022
This tour was great. It started on time, and there was few people on the site (not sure because of the time, or the pandemics or both). The balance between explanation and free time was very good. The guide was apparently very knowledgeable. The tequila tasting was not something special. It is one of those activities that the tour includes to help the locals I guess. The items for sale were expensive. But not bad either The restaurant had plenty of options.

Chris_B

Our guide, Gerson, was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, entertaining and funny. We had a great time and learned so much! Gerson recommended a lot of great reads about this historical site as well. Most impressive was the fact that he gave the tour in Spanish and English! The bus read very nice and clean, and our driver Johnny was a true professional and very pleasant. We’d recommend this tour. It was not expensive considering the whole package. We happened to be staying very close to one of the convenient pick up points, so even though it was an early start, it wasn’t bad at all. After the tour of Teotihuacán, we tried some locally-made tequila, mescal and pulque which were a lot of fun. Our guide there was again very knowledgeable and informative. We capped the day off with lunch at the rancho azteca and saw some dancing. It was delicious and entertaining. Thanks to Gerson, he was wonderful.

Edith our tour guide was great, she was very knowledgeable and willing to answer additional questions! I learned a lot about Teotihuacan that I definitely would not have learned otherwise. She and our driver were also really great about communicating changes in plans with us - there was a big demonstration going on in Mexico City the day of our tour and they delivered us there and back safely and in not too long, and made sure we understood what was happening.
