What people are saying about Mexico City

Wonderful tour guide Sergio. We requested him to do our tour in Spanish but to speak slowly. Hr was very accommodating; we learned a lot and got more Spanish practice. He was very friendly, funny, and helpful. I recommend this tour to anyone wanting good service to learn about the history of Teotihuacan.

This tour is very well planned, you can get to know different architectural jewels of the city with the right rhythm and time, thanks to our guide we were able to appreciate those details that, despite being in full view, few can notice. I really liked the tour, I would book with them again.

Perfect in every way, enough time to explore each attraction and clear and very relevant explanations from Iban and guide in Teotihuacan. The tour is definitely highly recommended:)
