7:00 AM
We pick up only in the following areas: Downtown, Zona Rosa, Reforma & Polanco. Pick up in Santa Fé is not available
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.

Worth Spending the Day Out of the City

The ruins are breathtaking and Carlos did a great job of passionately explaining the history of the place. Highly recommend.

Antionio and Abraham were great! Picked us up exactly on time and drove us out there while telling us about Mexico City and the surrounds. When we got to the pyramids Antonio was very knowledgeable and friendly, and happy to answer all our questions. We arrived early which I would recommend so you are not starting when it is very hot. Tequila tasting and lunch are at those tourist trap places you get by monuments like this, but the staff there were polite and didn’t hound you to buy something from the shop like other places do. The tasting was good, got to try some different agave drinks that were new to me. Lunch was surprisingly really good! They didn’t have vegetarian options on the menu however we asked and they were able to cater, the vegetarian food was actually better than what we got from the menu! Definitely recommend this experience, well worth it and not just because you’re in an air conditioned private car rather than a sweaty tour bus.

Exceeded Expectations from Start to Finish
Charles_B
, Mar 2022
The private tour exceeded my expectations from start to finish. At precisely the time we asked to be picked up, we were greeted in our hotel lobby by our tour guide Antonio. Antonio greeted us enthusiastically, then ushered us out to our clean, modern car and waiting driver. The ride to Teotihuacan passed pleasantly with Antonio sharing background information about the site. The tour itself brought us to every part of Teotihuacan. Antonio was very knowledgeable about the site and shared his knowledge with us freely, while also giving us time at various parts to explore on our own. Antonio helped us to appreciate the historical significance of the sites we were seeing, but he also made the experience fun and meaningful. He even offered to take photos of us along the way. After touring the cultural site, we made the short car ride to the craft workshop for the tequila tasting. Clearly this was an opportunity to pump some more money into the local economy. Since that's what we were expecting, we didn't resent it, had fun, and yes, purchased some high quality, locally made items. The craft workshop is adjacent to a restaurant where we enjoyed a nice lunch before being driven back to the city. From start to finish, the private tour with tequila tasting exceeded my expectations and those of the rest of my group as well.

Costs a little more, but SO WORTH IT!
Ivette_S
, Mar 2022
You can take a taxi here for a little less money, but you won't get a knowledgeable guide that knows the history. And, that's what makes the trip special, learning about the civilization here. Our guide Ligia was amazing! She took us to multiple locations throughout the day, lunch with live dancers and mariachi, shopping, tequila tasting. We asked her a zillion questions and she was so thorough in her responses. Spend the little extra money to have a private guide and travel in a comfortable car with AC with an in-language guide. You deserve it.

Canceled extremely last minute and ghosted
Mackenzie_L
, Feb 2022
We are very disappointed by this tour operator’s lack of professionalism. Fifteen hours before our tour, at around 4:30PM, we were informed via email that our tour was canceled due to a “sanitary inspection.” I emailed the operator multiple times that evening, letting them know we could not go the following day as they suggested because we already had plans, trying to get a better understanding of why our tour was canceled (a sanitary inspection is incredibly vague), and requesting a refund when I still had not heard from them by 6:30PM — at that point, it had become painfully clear we were going to have to find a different means of getting to Teotihuacan. It has been two days, and I STILL have not heard from the tour operator. At the very least, they could provide a confirmation that a refund is being processed. All this being said, book this tour at your own risk. There are plenty of amazing reviews, which is why we booked this tour in the first place, but unfortunately this operator has shown an extreme lack of professionalism that anyone interested in spending money on them should be aware of.

Great Private Tour
Rich_D
, Jan 2022
Pick up was prompt in a clean car. The private tour only picks you/your group, you do not share the car with anyone else. Ligia was a wonderful guide and did an incredible job explaining the history. She was very flexible on the things that I wanted to see and places that i did not want to stop. Definitely recommend, especially if you want to avoid buses full of people.

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!!

Solo traveler in CDMX

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.

No crowds
Kimberly_E

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.

It was amazing! Our tour guide Ivan was so nice, interesting and thorough! He did a great job of taking us through the pyramids and surrounding ruin sites, and made it so interesting for us. Our tour was really well paced -- he gave us enough time to climb the pyramids and explore a little on our own, while also keeping us on time and making sure we got back to our hotel on time. The private car was really incredible (I loved being able to get back into the A/C afterwards!) and Maria our driver was really nice as well. I would highly recommend booking a private tour if possible; there is just so much to see and learn that doing so with a private tour guide is really the best way possible
