Full description

Discover the majestic pyramids of Teotihuacan on an early-morning tour departing from Mexico City. Explore the site with your guide and learn more about the pre-Hispanic history of Mexico.

After being collected from the lobby of your hotel by minibus, you will be taken to the archeological site of Teotihuacan, where you’ll marvel at some of the most impressive pyramids in the world.

You can see the Sun and Moon pyramids, visit the Temple of Quetzalcoatl, walk through the Avenue of the Dead, and much more. You will then be taken to a clay workshop where you will learn everything about the pulque, silver, and clay processes, manufactured by local people.

Whilst there you will also learn about how all these activities were done years ago, and you will be even invited to taste some tequila, mezcal, and pulque. Following this, you can enjoy delicious Mexican food and drinks (not included) during an allocated short break. Your tour will then conclude with you being taken back to your hotel or preferred nearby location at around 3:00 PM.

This tour was so great, I would do it again! Ines was our guide and Raul was our driver. Ines was so friendly and knowledgeable. She taught us so much. Highly recommend going early. You beat the traffic and the heat. The pyramids are amazing, but be prepared to walk a lot, which was not a problem for us. Ines also gave us time to look at things and take pictures which was nice. The tequila tasting was cool too. Tasted some things I have never tried before. Also, a good stop for souvenirs to take back. Finally, the lunch was fantastic. We really enjoyed the whole day, especially thanks to Ines. Only downer was traffic coming home, but traffic should be expected in the city always.

It is a good option to avoid large groups of people and it is a plus that they pick you up (even though they were 40 minutes late, that was very bad). However, we hired a tour in Spanish and they put us on a tour with all Americans and English, the guide gave a long and detailed explanation for them and then explained to us very briefly in Spanish. It was not the service that we chose and paid for.

I was collected from my hotel earlier than advertised (6am). It was a nice small group of just 4 people. Ines was our guide and Francisco our driver. The drive there was comfortable. The tour itself was informative and enjoyable. There is about 5km of walking involved and it gets hot, so bring plenty of water and a hat! After the pyramids, I really liked seeing the craft shop and how they use the cactus plant. I liked the flexibility to choose as a group whether we wanted to stay for lunch or not. All in all it was a tour well worth doing! I learned far more than I would have if I’d gone alone.
