The tour is fantastic. Carlos, The tour guide, worked really hard to explain everything. We did everyting according to the tour descriptions. Not like other tours which reuire you to get up early, we were picked up at 9:00AM with plenty of time having breakfast. When we arrived at the Teotihuacan site, there were just not many people. We really had a good time there on the site. By the way, the lunch is also really good near the Pyrimides. I would highly recommend this tour and the tour guide. The driver, Luise, is great too --- the Van was always ready when we needed it.
I have bern to many places with many tours and this tour rates #1 for me. Carlos Calderon our guide was the best, knowlegeable, answered all our questions regarding the sites, also went out of his way (with his driver Arturo) to get us some delicious fruit!!! It did not bother them either that we asked for extra time at the Shrine of Guadalupe we never felt rushed. The lunch was delicious!!! This was our first day in the city and could not have a better start for the trip!!!
This was probably the best tour we have ever taken! If you're hesitating ... don't! Carlos, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgable and friendly. His english was perfect and explained all to us in detailed fashion.
Luis, our driver, and Carlos arrived on time to pick us up at our hotel. We immediately proceeded to visit our first site, the Tlatelolco ruins, the place where Aztec culture came to an end and modern Mexico began. On the way to the site, Carlos gave us a great primer on Mexican/pre-Columbian history. From there we headed to an artesian workshop where we learned of the many practical uses of the maguey plant. We also tried drinks derived from the maguey: nectar juice, pulque and tequila!
Soon after we visited the Teotihuacan pyramids about an hour away...fantastic! After climbing both the pyramid of the sun and the moon in the company of Carlos, we headed out to lunch nearby where we had typical Mexican dishes from the region including chicken mixiote, very delicious. Finally, we headed to the Virgin of Guadalupe Basilica. Again, Carlos explained the significance of the shrine and the meaning of the Virgin to Mexican culture.
I also want to add that Luis drove perfectly...we felt completely safe at all times. Overall, great experience, great tour!
We had a great tour of Teotihuacan and Guadalupe Shrine on April 7 this year. Carlos Calderon, our guide was just plain outstanding. Hi English was very good and he was extremely knowledgeable not only about the sites we saw but also about many other things. We learned so much from him about Mexican history, literature, art, politics. He was perfect for our needs, always ready to provide extra information, show us more. To the extent that he stretched our tour from 6 to 8 hours without asking for extra payment or even hinting at the tip. He was extremely polite, flexible to suit our needs such as the need to spend some extra time at the Guadalupe Shrine and accommodating. Ana, the driver was very pleasant and expert at navigating through the busy streets and roads of Mexico City and surrounding areas. We had a great time wit the two of them!
Carlos is one of the most knowledgeable, intellectually curious, and highly articulate tour guides I've ever encountered. I booked a private tour for myself, my husband, and my parents, and it was well worth it. Carlos customized our experience, spending more time in areas we were really interested in, and answering all our questions about everything under the sun. Would highly recommend - request for Carlos!

He gives us a lot of very intersting information about Mexico City in the way to Teothuacan. At the ruines He showed us all the fantastique Things to See more than other groups see. He helped us, an old couples, The lunch was typical mexican food. Taste it! The Guadalupe shrine was also intetesting. The whole day was perfect. Thank you David and Louis!!
David and Arturo were great! They were warm, personable, and flexible. David was very knowledgeable and suggested some less well known parts of the Teotihuacan site that were gems -- wonderful additions that really set the trip apart from the typical tour. My daughter and I love photography, and we wanted to spend the bulk of the day in the ruins, and David and Arturo easily accommodated us and adjusted plans on the fly. Highly recommended!
