We were thrilled with our early access tour of Teotihuacan. The site was practically empty when we arrived and the weather was still cool, which definitely enhanced the experience. (We could not imagine doing this later in the day, even in relatively temperate early March.) Everything ran like clockwork, from our 6:20 am pickup to our 3 pm dropoff, and our bus driver (Miguel?) was excellent. We felt comfortable and safe and the drive not too long.. It was helpful that the group was split into Spanish and English speakers so nobody had to stand around listening in the other language. Our guides, Fabio and Alejandro, were personable and well-versed in the history and characteristics of the site and left plenty of time for questions and thorough, well-informed answers. We usually self-guide but cannot imagine duplicating for ourselves what they provided. We also found the orientation to native drinks of Mexico interesting (and tasty) but found the restaurant mediocre at best.

Leonardo was our group guide for the early morning tour of Teotihuacán. He was very knowledgeable and showed passion for the history of these ancient pyramids. Leonardo made sure everyone was enjoying ourselves and continued to ask if we had any questions. Overall I enjoyed the tour and would do it again!

The site is amazing and we did enjoy the tour very much. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Mexico. We were surprised to find out when we got to the meeting point that this was a large tour group of over 50 people. There were 2 tour guides so that made each group a bit more manageable.
