This tour was an incredibly knowledgeable and entertaining experience. First off, they were punctual with picking us up right at our front door. Angela was our guide. She was very kind, helpful, fun, and smart! I feel like we got a really good history lesson on this tour. I learned a lot about San Juan Teotihuacán and CDMX. Angela also helped us navigate the market which came in handy when trying to purchase particular items such as jewelry from street vendors. The restaurant we went to, Tlacaelel, was a nice touristy touch to the trip that provided great staff, different meal options, gorgeous landscaping and beautiful live music & dancing. I would definitely recommend Wayak! - Greg & Lloyd

We had great day at Teotihuacán. Our driver David and tour guide Fernando took excellent care of us providing detailed as well as entertaining information throughout the trip and taking us safe to the site and back. Definitely worth the money and highly recommendable.
