Teotihuacan Pyramids and Shrine of Guadalupe
Reviewed by: David R, January 2015
Great tour! Francisco was very knowledgeable of the history of the pyramids and Our Lady of Guadalupe, spoke good English, and made us feel very welcome. Highly recommend selecting the option that includes lunch as the buffet of authentic dishes was very good. Other stops were a silver shop (jewelry store) and store with onyx and agave cactus liquors. While these stops are obviously included to sell their products, we found the them informative and no high pressure sales.

We had a great time on this tour. Frank was very knowledgable and he also took us to some places not listed on the itinerary. The driver was very safe. The restaurant had delicious plentiful food. Highly recommend this tour.

Francisco was a very knowledgeable and pleasant guide,who spoke excellent English and took us to other interesting sites as well as the Pyramids. With a delicious lunch thrown in this was a wonderful day and most interesting introduction to Mexico.

We enjoyed this 2000+ year-old pyramid tour very much in the company of an excellent and knowledgeable guide (Franco). The tour (6 people in a comfortable van) began with a trip to the Square of the Three Cultures where we saw the Aztec pyramids, the Spanish church, and the new Mexican buildings. We then visited the Shrine of Guadalupe and spent some time in both the old and new basilicas. Then we went for a 45-minute trip to the Teotihuacan pyramids (on the way we had lunch at a buffet place) where our guide explained the history of the Moon and the Sun pyramids, and then we were given a couple of hours of free time to hang around the archeological site and climb up the pyramids.

Excellent! The tour was everything I had hoped for, and our guide was helpful, friendly, and very knowledgeable in the sites we visited.
Traffic in Mexico City was horrid (expected), so we were delayed in starting our trip. The food at the restaurant was very good. Would highly recommend this experience for all visitors to Mexico.

This was beautiful. Our tour guide was Frank and we had him for a different tour as well and he was very good with both. I was traveling with my parents and it was just the three of us through out this tour, so it was nice and private. First they they take you to a little compound where they show you how they harvest the maguey plant. You get to taste pulque, mezcal, tequila and other spirits made with it. Then they walk you through their sculpting and stone shop. Giving you an example of how to tell authenticity of different precious stones and showing you what to look out for in good stone craft. Of course they show you into their shop right after. But you don't have to buy anything. Frank and the guy at this compound are very very friendly and nice. After this you drive up to the pyramids. Bring a hat and some sun screen. This was amazing. I regret not walking all the way up to the top of the pyramid of the sun and to the pyramid of the moon. It's not for old unfit people who are heat sensitive - which both my parents are but they loved it. I mean, Loved it. Then lunch. Its a short drive to a buffet lunch. Food was okay. Got to try the cactus salad and a few other stews. After, it's a drive to Guadalupe. As a non practicing catholic I enjoyed the architecture if the basilica and it's amazing design. My parents who are deeply catholic we're amazed by it all. And collectively it is amazing seeing the image so well preserved on Juan Diego's cloak. It was a great day.
