excellent trip, great knowledge from the guild with beautiful views in this large archaeological city. Only down side is you pick a trip that has no food on it so you can try local food or have other plans, but they take you to the mass buffet and there is know were for you to go. so your are stuck there waiting in the car park while others pay for pricey generic grub. This is of course after you have the sales pitch to buy stuff more expensive than the street vendors you saw around the pyramids

There were about 60 people on the tour with only 2 guides. We were split in two. Even though I booked an english tour we had a few spanish speakers so we had to listen to the guides tour twice once in spanish and once in english. This made the tour take twice as long. What could have easily been a half day tour ended up taking a whole day so I wasted a ton of time. Our guide also had no skill at corralling the large group and we were constantly waiting on people who didnt meet at the agreed upon time. The guide ended up changing the meeting point at the end of the tour and some people were not aware and we ended up leaving like 5 people. Not sure where they ended up as I never saw them again throughout the other activities on the tour. After Teotihuacan we were taken to Lunch which started with a 30 minutes sales pitch at some shop to attempt to get us to buy junk from some shop. Then I had to wait 90 minutes while people ate some lunch that was included with their tour but not mine. After we had to go back and make 2 stops hotels to drop people off who didnt book the City Sightseeing tour. I was so upset and so behind schedule that I just got off at the hotel and skipped the second part of my tour sightseeing. I would never recommend someone take this tour or use this company.

The Teotihuacan Pyramids Early Access Tour was great. The Historical City Sightseeing Tour was one of the worst tours I have been on - there was no plan for the tour, we walked a few blocks only, and there wasn't much information provided. It's unfortunate, because this could be a good combination tour however, they do not do a good job with the city tour. The pyramids tour is worth it!!

Excellent, yet straining tour. Pick-up is very early in the morning. Once in the pyramids, the guide will walk you to the main sites. Be prepared to walk three to five kilometers in the span of three hours. Bring good walking shows. If you are coming in the summer, temperatures can be chilly, bring a good rain coat or umbrella. Don't forget your sunscreen as well. The restaurant choice for lunch was forgettable, but this portion of the tour was very good. No pushy sales pitches, informative guide, and a one in a lifetime experience seeing one of the greatest historical sites in the world. The second portion of the tour, in Mexico City's historical city center is much shorter, perhaps 90min. We visited the government palace and the guide was extremely knowledgeable in explaining Diego Rivera's murals. A real masterpiece that allows you to better understand Mexico. The main cathedral is also stunning, with its gold gilded sculpture and its leaning columns. Most buildings in the historical centers are leaning due to the sandy ground and a succession of earthquakes. Quite amazing and definitely a recommended experience.
