The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Teotihuacan, known as the City of the Gods, is believed to have been established around 100 BC. Take full advantage of this private tour with your own archeologist guide to learn all there is know about this ancient site. After hotel pickup in Mexico City by air-conditioned minivan, travel with your guide about an hour northeast of the city to Teotihuacan.

Inside the archeological zone, explore the palaces, plazas, and pyramids, while learning fascinating history about the architecture and its cultural foundations from your guide. Visit the Temple of Quetzalcoatl, also known as the Temple of the Feathered Serpent, as well as the Palace of Quetzalpapalotl. See the complex’s less-visited monuments, including elaborate murals and other architectural nuances. Hear about the most recent archeological findings, the lifestyles of the residents of this once-thriving city and theories behind the city’s decline.

Stroll along the Avenue of the Dead (Calle de Los Muertos), a 1.5-mile (2.4-km) road that connects the main structures, including the Pyramid of the Moon and Pyramid of the Sun. You have the chance to climb these magnificent edifices for stunning bird’s-eye views of Teotihuacan.

After touring the archeological site, board your minivan and en route back to Mexico City, stop by an obsidian workshop. Meet a local family and sample tequila, mezcal and liqueurs made from native cactus plants. Purchase lunch here, if you like, before your day trip ends with drop-off at your Mexico City hotel.

Definitely worth the money to do this tour! We had Ligia Ayala as our tour guide and she was fantastic! She picked us up from our hotel in Mexico City, explained a lot about the city and history of things as we drove by them which was super cool. The drive to the pyramids is a little long but Ligia made the drive enjoyable with her stories and knowledge about the city. It’s super helpful having someone guide you through the park entry (I.e. buying the tickets, parking, where to enter), explaining the history of the pyramids, leaving some time for my husband and I to walk around ourselves and then she helped us leave the area as well. Don’t even bother saving money by doing a group tour - it’s just not the same and not that much cheaper honestly. The only recommendation I would have on this tour is skip the tequila tasting / lunch option and just head back into town for lunch. The food nearby is not good and the tequila tasting is a tourist trap which was disappointing. Touring the pyramids for a few hours will have you tired, have Ligia drive you back and enjoy a tequila tasting back in town! Much better options outside the tourist area. Overall, great experience - can’t recommend it enough!! Thanks Ligia!!

The private tour was definitely worth it. We enjoyed seeing the pyramids up close. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating. We also enjoyed stopping at the gift shop. The shop merchant was hilarious! Make sure you wear comfortable shoes. It was ALOT of walking.

I’m a solo traveler who like to roam on holiday at the beat of my own drum. I booked this tour based upon previous reviews. My tour guide was Ligia, she arrived on time, and remained courteous, polite, informative, and fun through the entire tour. Because this was a private tour Ligia allowed me to customize it to my liking. I will recommend her to all my friends and family members traveling through Mexico City. If you would like a patient, knowledgeable guide who allows customized itineraries I highly recommend her to you.

Went early to avoid any crowds that may form. Site was closed for obvious reasons, but we were able to get some good explanations and stopped in several areas throughout the day. With being there early we got to watch the sun rise over the pyramids and see the balloons going about - probablythe best part. The guide did the best she could with the circumstances. Worth the extra money to not have to deal with the street vendors.

Hello. Thank you for your comments, we are glad to know that even the site was closed you had a good time with us. We hope to have you back now that the site is open. Regards Amigo Tours Mexico City
