Amazing history, great tour mostly made so by our extremely informed tour guide! She was very knowledgeable, traveled and pleasant. Be sure to stress to tour guests to bring with them plenty of water and something to eat during the 5+ hours (we did! : )

Worth it

This was an awesome trip for truly unique sightseeing. The tour operator was willing to accommodate a hotel pickup and it was only our group that day. The van ride was comfortable and the tour guide spoke excellent English and have a good mix of information with time for pictures, letting us experience the site at our own pace. Don’t expect a lot of shops…it is an archeological site that is relatively newly developed. A great day out though—every in my group thought this tour was fantastic.

Round pyramids—I’ll admit we didn’t know! But we do now.

Our guide was knowledgeable and comprehensive and paid attention to varying needs among the guests because there was a short uphill walk. The site is unique, its history fascinating, and the museum a wonderful and surprising wrap up to the on site part of the tour. The driver, Saul, did a fine job and we really appreciated the all out effort of Veronice, our guide. The restaurant at the drop-off in town was meat-oriented and very good at delivering their specialty.

This was a wonderful, full of learning new things experience! It started a little bumpy after the company had unfortunately forgotten to read my email regarding keeping the trip day as it is, so I waited for almost an hour and it became clear they had forgotten me. I already thought I will just get reimbursed and won’t be able to enjoy the tour at all, but the company arranged a private tour for me with an English-speaking guide - Dante - and picked me up within 30 mins. The tour with Dante was extremely informative and just all-around great! The archeological site had a wonderful interpretative museum that Dante explained to me masterfully, answering even the most detailed questions. The ride was comfortable amd safe and we even stopped at a good place for Torta Ahogada on the way back that I wished for. Dante and our driver Mario were very flexible amd helpful. I can highly recommend the tour and Dante specifically! Great service and quick thinking on the company side - thank you all!

Wonderful day in Guachimontones

Alejandro and Dante arrived at our condo right as scheduled and a wonderful day began. Dante was extremely knowledgeable and answered questions we had not only about Guachimontones but about Guadalajara in general. We loved the site and all of the information that Dante shared with us. He and Alejandro joined us for lunch, and we had a wonderful conservation on many topics. We felt like friends by the end of the tour. We loved the site visit and the company of both of these wonderful gentlemen. We felt safe in the van at all times as Alejandro drove us from place to place. It was a great day! If you have a chance to take this tour, we would recommend it.
