    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Tlatelolco, Mexico City Mexico

    Currently, the ruins of the Plaza de las Tres Culturas correspond to the ceremonial precinct of Tlatelolco, which bears similarities to Tenochtitlan, both in logic and in the objective: to form a city where the market and trade were the main activity.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe, Fray Juan de Zumarraga No. 2 Villa Gustavo A. Madero, Mexico City 07050 Mexico

    The Basilica of Santa María de Guadalupe, officially called Insigne and National Basilica of Santa María de Guadalupe, is a sanctuary of the Catholic Church, dedicated to the Virgin Mary in its dedication of Guadalupe, located at the foot of the Cerro del Tepeyac in the Gustavo City Hall A. Madero of Mexico City. It belongs to the First Archdiocese of Mexico through the Guadalupana Vicariate that since November 4, 2018 is under the care of Salvador Martínez Ávila who holds the title of General and Episcopal Vicar of Guadalupe and rector of the Sanctuary.1

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Teotihuacan Pyramids, San Juan Teotihuacan 55800 Mexico

    The Pre-Hispanic City of Teotihuacan was one of the largest urban centers in the ancient world, which reached a population of more than 100,000 at the time of its greatest splendor. Located in a valley rich in natural resources, Teotihuacan was the seat of power of one of the most influential Mesoamerican societies in the political, economic, commercial, religious and cultural, whose features permanently marked the peoples of the Mexican highlands, transcending time and coming to us with the same strength and greatness with which its builders planned it.

    Duration: 2 hours

      Wonderful tour with Pedro, our driver, and Carlos, our guide. We were picked up on time. Carlos provided a general overview of our tour for the day as we drove along. We were offered bottles of water (not always the case on Mexican tours). Carlos was extremely knowledgeable and able to answer all our questions regarding history and construction of the ruins and the shrine. The pace of the day as perfect. A tasty lunch was included in the tour as well. Highly recommend the tour and highly recommend Carlos as your guide.

      This excursion was awesome - my partner and I were very happy with the experience! Our guide Gio and our driver Juan were top notch in service, knowledge, friendliness and professionalism. Gio is a wealth of information about the culture and history of Teotihuacan, walking us through the entire exhibit, pointing out notable artifacts and tying them into the overall history and how it relates to the present day. The tour of the obsidian shop was interesting - I knew the plant that produces aloe vera was versatile, but was surprised to learn it was THAT versatile (you can even make paper out of the stems). Lunch was pretty good as well - though a bit touristy, it was still tasty. The Guadalupe Shrine (and associated religious meaning) was new to me, as I never heard of it before, but the history is interesting, and the complex a lot larger than I was expecting. The tour lasted about 8 hours (primarily due to traffic issues), but Gio and Juan didn’t miss a beat and made sure we were comfortable the entire way.

      Overall we were very pleased with the tour and would recommend it. Thank you Gio and Juan!

      We had a fantastic, but exhausting, full day tour.
      I will guide Carlos and driver Roberto were exceptional and definitely made the day.
      Teotihuacan and Guadalupe Shrine were both equally stunning.
      Do not visit Mexico City without seeing both of these.

      Our tour guide, Arturo, and our driver were complete professionals. Arturo gave us the rundown on all the sights, and the car immediately met us whenever we were ready to go to the next place. We learned a lot, and we moved at a brisk pace but didn't feel rushed. We recommend this tour!

      The private tour to Teotihuacan and Guadalupe is the way to go. Very crowded but Carlos knows how to navigate the crowd and focus on the key aspects of the visits to enhance the experience. Otherwise, the trip would have taken twice as long and less interesting.

      Carlos also has incredible detailed knowledge of the history, the major events, and how things historically link not only in Mexico but also with Europe to make the understanding much much better.

      Highly recommend asking for Carlos. He went out of his way to make the trip better beyond what is normally requested from the booking.

      I have been to Teotihuacan once before but never with a guide. It’s worth all the bucks and Carlos was amazing and so helpful. I was thrilled with the background and his delivery. He made the whole thing interesting, fun and exceptional. Really really happy with the whole thing.

      This is an amazing tour that takes you to some of the most important sites in all of Mexico. Our guide, Jose Luis, was a wealth of information and knowledge. His understanding of the history and significance of these sites will broaden your experience. The included lunch is not only delicious, but it is also enjoyed with a very nice view of the Pyramids of Teotihuacan.

      Jose Luis was able to present an informative and enjoyable tour of Teotihuacan. His enthusiasm for the historical site was evident in his explanation to us. The exercise of walking to the top of the pyramids is something I would recommend to other travelers.

      Had a fun and informative day thanks to Carlos and Eliseo. We were thrilled to find out that it would be an 8 hour tour instead of 6 hours as described in the Viator listing. Teotihuacan is an amazing place and very much worth the effort to visit. The arrival timing and access to each of the sites was perfect, our time was spent experiencing the sites rather than waiting in line. The stop at the crafts/souvenir shop was actually fun (especially with samples of tequila and mezcal) and there was absolutely no pressure to purchase. Lunch was really good and having the Pyramid of the Sun in the background couldn't be beat. Carlos was an excellent guide and excited to share his knowledge with us. Visiting Teotihuacan takes a bit of physical effort if you really want to experience the pyramids and Carlos was extremely attentive to everyone's needs. Drivers in Mexico City are crazy (even by California standards), but Eliseo was a safe, courteous, and excellent driver. We were well taken care of by both of them and had a fantastic time. Thanks Carlos and Eliseo from the guys from San Francisco and Boston!

      We were impressed with our tour guide Veronica. She was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. She also gave us great tips about visiting Mexico City. We were able to stay longer at some spots and leave sooner at others. We did a lot in the time we toured. The pyramids were spectacular and the lunch spot was charming and overlooked the temple of the sun. I would highly recommend.

      We make a point of learning what we can about local history and culture on every vacation. Mexico City is packed with both. If I had more stars for Brenda and Elecio I would give them. They were prompt, punctual and clearly good people. Brenda is incredibly knowledgeable! She is also a great story teller and makes every aspect of what she tells come to life. We spent two days with her as our guide and I regret that we didn't book our last day with the same tour group. Simply wonderful. Brenda and Elecio made sure we were hydrated and paying attention to the sun, they also gave good advice on local eats.

      We had a wonderful day with our guide Jose Luis our driver Eliseo. They were perfectly on time and comfortably drove us from place to place. Both were very knowledgeable and we've talked about millions of things, learning about each others cultures. Jose Luis was a great and patient guide, he has a very pleasant way of talking, informative, entertaining and interactive. We visited the Square of Three Culture, the Teoticuacan pyramides and it's palaces with incredibly well-preserved murals and had a typical Mexican menu for lunch close by. On our way to the pyramids we visited a place were we tried tequila, mezcal and pulque and learned some cool facts about agave and the stone that was used in the area in the time the pyramids were build. There is a shop as well, and some may call it a tourist trap, but we really enjoyed learning about all the cool facts and it's up to you if you buy something or not, no pressure :-) We had plenty of time at the pyramids!

      The Guadalupe Shrine was another highlight. I really recommend seeing everything there is to see. Go up to the little church and make the full loop before entering the modern breathtaking basilica!

      We are very thankful for a great day and highly recommend this tour!

      We had the most wonderful time on our tour: our guide Jose Luis was very knowledgable and friendly, and our driver Luis very thoughtful. Jose Luis used his iPad and magazines to illustrate narratives about each place we visited, and we liked the fact that the tour was completely customizable: it was up to us how much or how little we saw. The lunch that was included was delicious (we had vegetarian options), and there was a beautiful view of the Pyramid of the Sun. It was a rather hot day, and it was nice how every time we were leaving a place, Luis was already in the car, with ac running. Do the whole tour if you can, we loved it! Great experience all around.

      Extremely pleased with the private tour. We have a toddler and my wife is pregnant so I wanted to take a tour tailored to our pace. Arturo was very accommodating to our needs giving us plenty of time to enjoy the sites and places. Additionally he presented himself professionally, dressing in a casual business suit, and gave a very thorough synopsis of Teotihuacan and Mexican history overall. This tour is worth it for those wanting a personalized pace to your tour.

      My sister, my 7 year old son and I took this private tour last week. The guide and driver came right on time at our hotel with a very clean big air-conditioned van. The driver had a cooler with a lot of cold water (very welcoming when it's very hot out) and other drinks. Our guide Carlos was very courteous, knowledgeable and very accommodating. He kept a close watch on my 7 year old and even held his hand while climbing up the pyramid and down. We never felt rushed nor pushed into activities we didn't want to partake in. It almost felt like we dictated the pace. Lunch was very good with spectacular views of the pyramid. On the way to the Guadalupe Shrine, given that I love churches, we even made a quick stop along the way at a deserted old church and Carlos was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the place being a history student. I would highly recommend Carlos any time and for their other day tours.
