Our tour with Julio was excellent. He was in communication with us in advance about our travel plan and arrival time. We took an Uber there, and the public bus back to CDMX, which worked well. He was very knowledgeable about the Teotihuacan Pyramids and the surrounding area. Since it was just our family on the tour, he let us set the pace in terms of how long we stayed at each sight and how far we walked. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Julio!

This trip was really fun. Our guide Javier was very friendly and very informative on every place we were going. We had enough time to be at all the places and explore. My favorite part was going to the cave restaurant, it was another world experience: I’m very satisfied with this tour. I would definitely recommend it or do it again.

It was great. Emanuel and Julio were a dream team. Emanuel was full of knowledge and was able to answer all my questions. Julio's navigation skills got us from point A to point B without hiccups.

Everything was fine with the guides and the places we went, the only thing that the option they had for the restaurant was very expensive for us. The rest is all good and perfect.

Lily and Francisco were amazing! Their explanations were so interesting and educational, we loved all the images and details they put in the tour! Highly recommended
