What people are saying about State of Mexico

This was a really great tour! I would have enjoyed just a bit more time at the pyramids in place of the time spent at the gift shop, but, overall, it was a really, really great tour and the restaurant that we stopped for lunch was really delicious! I recommend this for sure!

We had a great time on this tour! Alan was very engaging and spoke great English and German. He was very fun to listen to and took great pictures. He gave a great summary of the history in Teotihuacan and gave us an hour to explore ourselves.

Nos encanto!!! Fue una maravillosa nueva experiencia no tan solo fue divertida y llena de hermosos paisajes si no que también tuvimos un gran guía Alan hizo un excepcional trabajo haciendo nuestra experiencia inolvidable.

Marcus and Juan were amazing, explaining everything, giving information, history and fun facts about the pyramids.

It was en excellent trip, the guide (Marco) is an expert and also makes the trip very interesting
