What people are saying about Central Mexico

I honestly was not sure if this was legit or not but I am so grateful that the reviews were accurate. I highly recommend this company for running an efficient operation and for the very enjoyable experience. We were picked up on time at our hotel in the am, got to the departure center promptly, had great coffee and other small offerings and then went on the amazing air balloon ride. When we were brought back to the center, we had a full breakfast buffet with mariachi. We then went to Teotihucan for tree hours and then were back in CDMX to our drop-off by 3pm.

Great experience - Highly recommend! Our guide Leonardo was excellent. Transport out and back was comfortable and the site itself is breathtaking. The small group tasting after was delicious and informative. As others have said, the meet-up location can be tricky to locate. I recommend using the gps location in the app. It directs you to a sidewalk location as of Oct. ‘22.

The tour of the pyramid and the ruins was a great adventure. Our guide and driver, Fernando and Joel, were a great pair. Fernando's deep knowledge of the history of the pyramids and Mexico was very solid and Joel did an equally expressive job shuttling us to and fro. A great experience, I highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Mexico City

De por si Teotihuacan es maravilloso pero este tour al amanecer cumplió todas las expectativas, súper puntuales en el punto de encuentro, el transporte súper cómodo, guías expertos y lo mejor no había tanta gente por lo que puedes disfrutar mejor tus fotos.
