This is a great guided tour. A very nice tour bus picks you (group) up at a designated stop. You then go to the various stops with your guide for an excellent presentation on what you are looking at. Our guide was Alberto, who was very knowledgeable and accessible for questions. There is also sufficient free time at each site to explore on your own, use the baño, or just rest. At the site of the pyramids, there are presentations on obsidian, tequila, and of course, a guided tour of the pyramids. There is also a great restaurant for lunch. The entire tour lasts about 9 hours from the time you leave until your return. I highly recommend.

Wonderful tour guide Sergio. We requested him to do our tour in Spanish but to speak slowly. Hr was very accommodating; we learned a lot and got more Spanish practice. He was very friendly, funny, and helpful. I recommend this tour to anyone wanting good service to learn about the history of Teotihuacan.

Angela was very informative and pleasant. There were only three of us on the tour and it allowed each of us to have personal attention. We visited all three of the pyramids and walked the Avenue of the Dead. It was a very informative tour thanks to Angela.

Perfect in every way, enough time to explore each attraction and clear and very relevant explanations from Iban and guide in Teotihuacan. The tour is definitely highly recommended:)

Our guide was a passionate living encyclopedia. The experience was very well organized. Interesting tour
