Had 2 great days with Paulina, visiting Teotihuacan, Guadalupe Church, and city tour. Paulina is very professional to work with, responds quickly and provides a very good idea of what to expect from her tours, and she did not disappoint! Fun trip, and learned a lot of history from her. She goes out of her way to attend to our requests for best food in town and even brought us there on 2 occasions. Definitely one of the best guides we had in all our travels! HIGHLY RECOMMEND Paulina!
Rebecca HenschelUnited States
Paulina was fabulous! Very accommodating and offered options of how we preferred to spend our time throughout the tour. I cannot imagine a better way to see Teotihuacan and the historic center of Mexico City. Thank you Paulina for your expertise!
Elizabeth WitterUnited States
Great tour. She is well informed, speaks excellent English, and is a great driver. Highly recommended
Kristen SztyndorUnited States
This was my first time using Tours by Locals and I was lucky to have had the pleasure and the honor of having Paulina as my tour guide for Teotihuacan. She is kind, caring, extremely intelligent and knowledgeable and will customize the itinerary with no hesitation at all to meet your needs and expectations. Paulina offered several recommendations throughout the day to help make my trip to Mexico City easier and more comfortable. I definitely recommend her to all my family and friends!
Gretchen BryantUnited States
Paulina was really wonderful. She gave us lots of choices along the way, and opportunities we wouldn't have had with a bigger tour group. For example, at various points she would give us options -- do you want to go to the next site or to eat? Do you want to eat at this place or another? I really appreciated the flexibility. She was knowledgable, patient and came prepared with extra bottles of water and hats!
Hilary R.United States
Knowledgeable, accommodating, and worth every penny! Paulina arrived on time with a cooler filled with cold bottles of water, sunscreen, and several hats we could borrow for sun protection (she saved me from getting sunburned). She had activities planned, but was flexible to our interests and requests. She spoke English fluently and has a wide variety of life experience, having lived all over the world. Highly recommended! Thank you Paulina for the incredible day. I learned so much and had the best time.
Phyllis RingUnited States
We had a wonderful tour with Paulina. She is extremely knowledgeable about Mexico City and the pyramids. Paulina gave us several options on how to spend the day and explained what was involved with each option. She is totally flexible and really individualized the day for us. Paulina has a good sense of humor and the day with her was a lot of fun. I would highly recommend booking a tour with Paulina!
Paulina is an excellent tour guide, we did the Teotihuacan tour. She is fluent in English and her knowledge of history is outstanding! We could ask her any questions and she would answer every questions! She knows the area very well, is very attentive to the need of each of her passenger. Provided us with the time we needed to complete each visit. We had a full day tour and we are very very satisfied of our guide and tour. Thank you Paulina!
Jeffrey RoetUnited States
Paulina is an accomplished tour guide as well as an excellent driver and conversationalist. We climbed to the top of every pyramid and she showed us the best way to climb up and down the narrow stairs as well as telling us about the history of the ancient city. Paulina took us to a part of the city that few other people visit but should because it was amazing! Then she recommended restaurants for lunch and we selected one of them, which is in a cave. Great choice! Great guide! Great person to know!
Richard RussellUnited States
We just returned from Mexico City and had a great time . The weather was spectacular but Paulina made the trip something special. We toured the pyramids at Teotihuacan and the Guadalupe Shrine on a private tour and came to appreciate her knowledge of the history of the sites and little secrets not in the flyers and brochures. She took us to lunch at a restaurant in a cavern that was impressive and would have a unique experience that we would have. >Her command of English and Spanish was exemplory.
Dorit HeimerUnited States
Paulina was a fabulous guide. We spent over 6 hours together visiting not only the Teotihuacan pyramids but also several additional "houses" with fascinating and beautiful murals. Paulina was knowledgeable and fun to be with. We ended the tour with a delicious meal at an out of the way, small family restaurant. All in all a terrific day. Highly recommend.
David PollakUnited States
Paulina was knowledgeable and a pleasure to spend time with. She both catered the tour to our interests (as well as speed) and pointed us to a good restaurant in town, away from the side-of-the-road places, for lunch. We recommend her highly.
Roy CourtneyUnited States
Paulina is an AMAZING tour guide. She is thoroughly knowledgeable as to the history of the area and gave us a running commentary the entire day. My husband has mobility issues, and she arranged to drive to areas where we could be dropped off, requiring a minimum of walking. She is WONDERFUL! We highly recommend her and hope to use her services in the future. BTW....she is as pleasant as she is capable!
Michael LupinUnited Kingdom
Paulina was a great guide - punctual, courteous, very knowledgeable and friendly. She even dropped off some tickets that we forgot at our hotel the following day! I'd highly recommend Paulina and would use her tour guide services again if I return to Mexico City.
Shawn SmithUnited States
Paulina was very knowledgeable, professional, and flexible during our tour! I had previously been to the pyramids, but her knowledge far exceeded my previous experience. She was great at providing options, and our lunch was fabulous at Restaurante Clotilet. I will seek her out for future tours!
Kathleen FrankovicUnited States
Paulina is extremely knowledgeable and willing to share what she knows. She is also well-prepared. She had aspirin to deal with my headache plus hats and water for people who might need them. Teotihuacan is a must. For the first time, I really understood the layout of the mesoAmerican cities. And even the non-religious should see Guadalupe. Paulina told us she is planning more tours. We look forward to returning to Mexico so we can tour again with her!
Constance BerkenUnited States
Paulina is the perfect tour guide! We are so glad we booked this tour. She picked us up at our hotel. She is a very safe driver. We went at a pace that was comfortable for us. She is passionate and answered all our questions. Her knowledge base is very broad. When we needed a break, Paulina took us to a very reasonable, local place for lunch. Our experience was much more meaningful because of this tour. We recommend Paulina as a guide and this tour if you desire the best experience!
Adria ErmolenkoUnited States
We had a wonderful day with Paulina! She is extremely knowledgeable and tailors your tour to your needs. She was very easy to talk to and answered all of our questions. She is even prepared for those of us who forget to bring sun hats (a must at Teothuacan) or water. We were able to see many things that we would not have without a private guide. Paulina's tour definitely exceeded our expectations and I highly recommend her! She clearly loves what she does and really went the extra mile!
Ellen BrinksUnited States
Paulina has a deep connection to Teotihuacan that has developed over the years, and we both enjoyed our tour with her immensely. She shared a wealth of information with us, and it made the site so much more accessible and interesting. She's funny and easy to talk to about everything. An extra treat was the lunch spot she took us too -- the best food we've had in Mexico so far. I recommend Paulina for this tour without reservation! Ellen
Christy StephensUnited States
Paualina did an excellent job. She was very professional and attentive to our needs. We will look to book her in the future.
Michael TyshkovUnited States
Zandra BlairUnited States
I want to highly recommend Paulina with Tours by Locals. She possesses all the characteristics and skills of a great guide: excellent communication, memory and storytelling (with a dash of gossip), a sense of humor, expert knowledge, passion for the city and subjects, patience and flexibility, personable and sensitive, and finally punctual. Paulina truly enhanced my visit and made the tour a top experience in her beautiful and exciting city. She helped make my trip a wonderful adventure and memory!
Mike KarpUnited States
Paulina was great - very helpful, friendly, and knowledgable!
Kate GundersenUnited States
We absolutely loved Paulina's tour. She was extremely knowledgeable, and also flexible - she gave us multiple options throughout the day of how we wanted to proceed, which made sure we were spending our time the way we wanted to. She also brought us to a great, under-the-radar restaurant for lunch that we never would have found on our own. Highly recommend her for any tour in Mexico City (or beyond!!).

Timothy PrahlowUnited States
We took the Teotihuacan and Basilica tour with Paulina and could not have been happier with the day! Paulina was very pleasant to work with, a great driver, and spent the day making sure we were learning all of the information we desired on the places we visited. She was very flexible in how the day went and we rearranged a few things to make sure that we were able see what we wanted to see. We highly recommend tours with Paulina and would definitely book a trip with her when we get back to Mexico!
Amazing experience! Paulina was great company, and so well-informed. The balloon ride at sunrise was absolutely beautiful. One of our favourite travel experiences ever.
Aditi SinghUnited States
I recently did a trip to Teotihuacan from Mexico City with Paulina and it was a 5 out 5 stars experience! Not only did she get us there in time to beat the crowds; but she was super flexible and accommodating. I mentioned to her that I loved authentic Mexican food and she even got us back to CDMX in time to have lunch at her favorite place. It was the most memorable meal of my trip! Thank you, Paulina!! Highly recommend to anyone in Mexico City.
Jillian JoplingUnited States
Paulina was great! She went above our expectations of just seeing/climbing the pyramids. She took us to this great museum that had many of the wall paintings found in the area and on our way back to the city we stopped by one of the oldest churches in Mexico. We would absolutely recommend this tour and any tour Paulina guides.
Gary KovenUnited States
Wonderful is how we would describe our experience on this tour with Paulina. She picked us up promptly and off we went to Teotihuacan. She asked us what we wanted to do and see and then made it happen. We climbed the pyramids of Fire and Water and took in the museum. The whole time Paulina was giving us lots of information about everything we were seeing. Then we went to lunch at The Grotto (La Gruta) and it was absolutely amazing. The food, service and atmosphere were top notch. Highly recommend Paulina!
Elizabeth LarsenUnited States
Paulina was excellent! She arrived early, had a lovely car big enough for the four of us and was a great driver. She offered us a flexible schedule through our visit to Teotihuacan and we could add or remove things as we wished, depending on our interests, and she was just fine that we wanted to see absolutely everything! She had deep knowledge of the ruins and had insights and photos from additional studies about the history. She was very attentive to us personally and we felt cared for!
Hedy CohenUnited States
Paulina is an excellent guide. She speaks English well, is knowledgeable and intelligent. Highly recommended!
Keith K.United States
This was a fun tour and Paulina was a very accommodating guide. Because some of the museums were closed on Monday, we spent time at the Zocalo and walking around downtown. We got a traditional "blessing" in front of the Cathedral and ate lunch at a really cool spot above some ruins. Paulina is very knowledgeable and not only pointed out things on our tour, but also gave us ideas of things to do on other days. She alerted us to a fantastic Folklorico show at the Palacia de Bellas Artes. Thank you!
Donald MillerUnited States
Colin WrightUnited States

David LaRussoUnited States
Steven DiFilippoUnited States
Great tour. We learned so much and got to have experiences that were once in a lifetime. The pryamids were everything we hoped for. We really enjoyed the mural museum. Lunch in the cave was above an beyond and then on top of that the pulque was amazing. Thank you for everything.
Vincent HsiehUnited States
Paulina was very knowledgable and patient. There were only two of us on the tour and she did a very good job of customizing the experience to match what we wanted to see (versus a canned, set schedule) and our timeline for return. She even had hats, sunscreens, and (very cold) bottled water available for us - all must haves for a tour to Teotihuacan!
John McgeadyUnited States
Paulina was fantastic, very prepared, friendly and knowledgeable! We recommend her and this tour to everyone!
Daniel GriffithUnited States

Sarah KeeUnited States
Paulina is flexible, punctual, funny and knowledgeable. We're so glad we booked this tour with her. We saw a lot of the pyramids that most people would easily overlook (there are hidden gems there!) and she took us to the best meal we've had so far in Mexico City. We will definitely be reaching out in future should we be back!
Margie BiddickUnited States
Spending the day with Paulina for our Teotihuacan and Guadalupe tour surpassed our expectations. Paulina is professional, extremely knowledgeable, humorous, considerate, delightful, and amenable. She's an excellent driver and provided a comfortable vehicle for our travel. We would book Paulina for another tour anytime. Thank you for a wonderful and memorable experience!
Paulina was an amazing guide, very well informed, very friendly, and we thoroughly enjoyed the guided tour that she gave us. We recommend her very highly! Andy & Christine
Robin JendryaszekUnited States
Paulina was a fantastic guide. She was very informative about the history of the pyramids and the shrine of Guadeloupe, but also CDMX. We moved at my pace which was very appreciated. I enjoyed talking to her about the culture of Mexico and her different travels. She had a good selection of lunch places which I got to pick. I like that I was able to be picked up from my hotel and dropped off where I wanted to be. Paulina was lovely to talk to and I highly recommend you choose her for your guide.
Jill CloudUnited States
What a wonderful guide! We learned so much, saw so much, and had a great lunch! Go to the restaurant in the cave! Paulina is the best!

Great tour and tour guide. Our guide explained everything in great detail and we never felt rushed.
Ronit M.United States
Marie ChuaUnited States
Paulina was a fabulous guide. She was very knowledgeable and enriched our understanding of Mayan culture and history. She also invited us to her favorite carnitas restaurant el gran abanico, the best I have ever had. During our tour of teotihuacan she provided us with hats to protect us from the heat. I appreciate her attentiveness and attention to detail. I highly recommend her as a guide.
We were fortunate enough to be taken to the Teotihuacan pyramids by Paulina. It was a great experience as she spoke English clearly and all her explanations were helpful. Apart from this, she climbed both pyramids with us and took extra care to introduce us to the museum, the history of the area. Additionally, she most kindly stopped on the return trip for us to visit the Virgin of Guadelupe which we truly appreciated.This was at the end of a long day before taking us to our restaurant.
Bob GivensUnited States
Paulina is very friendly and it was a pleasure to have her as our guide. She picked us up on time and got us to the site early before the crowds. We learned a lot on the drive to the site and she pointed out many areas of interest along the way. She showed us areas of the site that we would have missed on our own. She was great in Spanish and English, which was perfect for our group. She is a very safe driver and got us home as quickly as possible in the crazy CDMX traffic. Highly recommended.
Debra ToeppenUnited States
The best tour we took while in Mexico City. Paulina delivered all that was promised and more. We loved the attention to detail, her knowledge and patience. I would definately seek her services were I in Mexico City and looking for a tour.

Another wonderful day with Paulina. Visited the pyramids and climbed most of the Sun pyramid. Great experience. The entire area was an archeological spectacular. By the time we left Paulina had explained all about the civilization that lived there before the Aztecs. Highly recommended!
Jack LensUnited States
Paulina was wonderful. Very knowledgeable, very friendly, perfect English. Was very flexible to do what we wanted at the pace we wanted. Looking forward to spending two more days with her exploring wonderful Mexico City.
Kevin SutantoJersey City, NJ, United States
We had a memorable trip to Teotihuacan and Guadalupe Shrine with Paulina. She is an energetic, fun, and knowledgeable guide. She is also very patient with our two sons and teaching them the history of both Teotihuacan civilization as well as Guadalupe Shrine. She also brought us to an authentic Mexican restaurant of which we enjoyed our meals so much! We were lucky to have her as our guide! We hope to have her as our guide again someday!
Heidi VanDerVoornUnited States
Paulina is one of the best guides we have ever had and we have traveled most of the world. She is able to read her guests and what their true interests are so customizing a tour with her is effortless. Her English is impeccable and her knowledge of the sites was extremely beneficial. We would definitely use her as a guide the next time we come back to Mexico City and surrounding areas.
Julio SantibanezUnited States
Paulina is a great tour guide! Very knowledgeable on the Teotihuacan topic, easy going, great person to take care of your tour. She was on time for pickup,and well prepared with extra stuff you may have forgotten (She lent me a hat and provided sunscreen lotion that I was not able to buy that morning because the pharmacy by my hotel was not yet open.) This pyramid visit was a great experience and will remain a great memory.

Paulina's tour of Teotihuacan was terrific. She is knowledgeable and flexible. We were offered options and we toured at out desired pace. I would highly recommend her. Her English is excellent.
Paulina has an outstanding knowledge of the sight of Teotihuacan, taking me to areas empty of tourists. They didn't know what they were missing. We also saw the major sights with an excellent commentary provided. The balloon flight was amazing - Paulina has a close relationship with the owner of the balloon company and our pilot was one of the best, providing us with astonishing views of the pyramids. This tour was wonderful - Paulina is one of the best guides you could hope for!
Joseph BlockmanUnited States
Gracias Paulina for a wonderful tour. Paulina is a pure professional-she is a licensed guide it really shows that she loves what she does. She knows all of her facts, comes prepared and speaks English very well. Paulina had a tablet with photos of the artwork and visual aids to keep us interested besides bottled water and sunscreen! She made our day fun and enjoyable, always giving us options of what we could see and do. If you want to have a great tour hire Paulina, you will be very pleased.
Kelly NelsonUnited States

Not only did we see (and climb) these spectacular pyramids, we journeyed off the beaten track to a fascinating villa which contained vivid frescos. On our own and without Paulina, we would never have found this site.

John BreenUnited States
Paulina is a very knowledgeable and accommodating guide. It was a pleasure to work with her.
Wonderful tour, wonderful guide, wonderful organization! Paulina made all the difference with her great knowledge and her ability to accommodate to our various needs.

Roger JohnsonUnited States
We spent two days with Paulina last week and had a wonderful experience! She is not only an excellent guide but also a very warm and caring person. We were able to customize our two days to include a visit to the elementary school I went to almost 60 years ago. She gave us plenty of options for each day and the restaurants we had lunch at were terrific! Paulina also knew exactly where to take us to find an original piece of art that I am now the happy owner of! Thank you Paulina for the great memories!
Dimitri MoursellasUnited States
We were extremely happy with our tour guide, Paulina, and with the way she conducted our private tour of Teotihuacan. She was professional, personable and knowledgeable. She gave us as much detail as we wanted but not too much. And, she has a sense of humour! She picked us up at our hotel on time and she was a good driver—we felt safe. We highly recommend her private tour.

Mackenzie BanksUnited States
An excellent tour guide. Paulina was extremely informative and helped us make the best use of our time, catering everything to our interests and needs. She was our guide during a major earthquake and put our safety first, taking us to her family member's house, feeding us, and then escorting us all the way home through terrible conditions and on foot even though it was hours after the tour should have been over. Her kindness was incredible. Highly highly recommend.
Jordan BakkeUnited States
Tour was great. Paulina was very knowledgeable and spoke English very well. I would highly recommend this tour itinerary and guide. We arrived when the location opened, and there were very few people which made for a very private experience.
Solimar MarquesUnited Kingdom
Paulina, is a very friendly, knowledgeable and experienced guide! She was a delight to spend the day with and we thoroughly enjoyed our trip to this amazing place in Mexico. She picked us up on time at our Airbnb and drove very safely there and back, her SUV is very comfortable. She really knows her history and gets the balance between sharing that knowledge and allowing you to soak up the atmosphere of the place. She understands her customers and will make sure you are in total control of your trip!

Mario FernandezUnited States
Paulina was excellent. Very knowledgeable, on time and flexible. Took us to some great non-touristy restaurants as well. We had a great time.
A good tour of downtown and the ruins located there. We enjoyed the museums, churches, and shopping, and we had a lovely lunch. Pauline was a great guide and so very careful to keep an eye on our teenagers in the crowds. I recommend Pauline for any tour of Mexico City.
Paulina was a wonderful and patient guide. We were treated to a lovely day at the amazing pyramids and we were never rushed while Paulina showed us around the grounds, took us to a good shopping area and made sure we choose a good restaurant for lunch. I would recommend this tour and highly recommend Pauline as a guide.
Juana SerranoUnited States
Paulina was excellent! She arrived at the airport promptly, met us and took us to Coyoacan. We had breakfast at Lucha's Quezadillas, which was a real treat and gave us an insight to the culture of the town. Her explanations were spot on and even though we were on a tight schedule she was able to fit in a quick driving tour of downtown. Would love to join Paulino in one of her other featured tours.
Wesley McGeeUnited States
Can't say enough great things about Paulina. Very knowledgeable and personable. Our kids took to her pretty quickly. It was like we'd known Paulina forever. She shared a lot of information about the Teotihuacan people, as well other info about the Aztecs and Mayans. The car was very clean and the ride very comfortable. Again, I can't say enough great things about Paulina and our experience. You can't go wrong with her. 10/10.
We enjoyed a very pleasant and well guided tour to Teotihuacan pyramids with Paulina. We will bring home a lasting souvenir of mexican culture thank to the passionate explanations. Someone interested in a deep understanding of the mexican cultural inheritance is at the right address with her.
We were a group of 18 from Ontario, Canada. Paulina picked us up from Mexico City airport and dropped us back. Even though our flight was late, she waited for us. Paulina is well organized. Her knowledge of Guadalupe Shrine and Mexico city was very good and she was very helpful in translating from Spanish to English as none of us spoke Spanish. We enjoyed a Mexican lunch at a local restaurant near the shrine. We appreciate all the help she extended to us. Thanks a lot Paulina
Mary ReynoldsUnited States
Paulina was great! She made last minuete changes for us and went above and beyond to help us. She was great with my children ages 1 and 8. Would definitely book her again!
Roger NixUnited States
Paulina was a great tour guide! - She was on time, knowledgeable, fun, and had a great personality. You can tell she loves what she does. Her vehicle was clean and she was very accommodating. She customized our tour to whatever we wanted to see, wherever we wanted to eat, and whether or not we wanted to exert ourselves physically or drive closer to landmarks. She has a great understanding of the pyramids and knows their history well. Enjoyed dining with her at a great taco joint before flying home.
Charles RokosnyUnited States
Paulina was an absolutely amazing host, I can not recommend signing up for one of her tours enough. She was very informative, very funny, and easy to get along with. Next time I'm in Mexico City I would definitely do another tour with her.
