Carlos was truly and completely fluent in English. It was like taking a tour of a new place with an old friend. We would definitely use him again and would refer our friends. His driving was also exceptional in a city that is difficult for driving.

Carlos is probably the best tour guide I've ever had in my many travels. His knowledge of history, the area, even sights we encountered en route to the pyramids and in CDMX, really illuminated the experience. Such a warm and friendly guy! The ease of conversation made the day fly by and he has the inside scoop that helped us by-pass long lines and see some things other tourists may have missed. I definitely recommend Carlos!

My husband, son, and I booked the Teotihuacan tour with Carlos San Roman. We were looking for a more intimate, low-key guided tour, as opposed to the organized bus tours that take tourists to the area but also include other stops that we did not wish to visit. We got exactly what we were seeking with Carlos. Carlos was punctual, super informative, spoke wonderful English, and was entertaining and enlightening with all of his vast knowledge. We had a wonderful experience and highly recommend Carlos!

Carlos is cool! We both had Montezuma's revenge and Carlos whipped out a couple of Treda and we were back to normal in no time. His knowledge and delivery are second to none and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole visit to Teotihuacan, despite my partner's immobility due to a foot injury. The pace was perfect and when we return to CDMX, Carlos will be the first call, if he'll have us!

He was very flexible and accommodating because we asked him to please show on time because we had limited time and he offered to pick us up 30 min earlier and when we came downstairs he was already there waiting for us. He was very cordial and kind and also really knowledgeable. He is 3rd generation tour guide so it can't get any better than that. Our tour was in english which he speaks perfectly. Oh and lastly he also is funny, he has very good sense of humor which made the tour even better.

Carlos was a fantastic guide. Incredibly knowledgeable and engaging. He showed up promptly at our hotel to pick us up and drove us to Teotihuacan pointing out sights along the way. Our tour was very comprehensive and detailed and we were very happy that we opted to hire a guide through Tours by Locals rather than participating in a bus tour. It was wonderful and would definitely love to have Carlos as a guide when we visit Mexico City again.

Carlos was a pleasant knowledgable guide. He picked me up at the airport (super early flight) and was ready for the drive to Teotihuacan. When we arrived, many people recognized him - an encouraging sign. He explained the history, background, and myths around the sight. He was gracious to move the car so the walk wasn't quite as long. Overall, I would definitely recommend him as he truly knew the archaeological proof of the site and didn't just quote myths.

We booked a private tour with Carlos for the pyramids at Teotihuacan. The tour was exceptional and thorough, focusing on exactly what we requested. It was informative and engaging--especially for our aspiring archeologist! I highly recommend Carlos as a guide--he is experienced, thoughtful, and engaging. He gave our teenage kids (and the adults) a lot to think about regarding how modern people have interpreted (right or wrong) the past. Good info for kids in college! Thank you!

It is not a long tour but this is perfect for someone who may have a long layover or someone who wants to see the pyramids and still have time to go into the city afterwards.

We're so glad we chose Carlos for this tour! We had a limited amount of time in CDMX but still wanted to make it to Teotihuacan, so this shorter itinerary was perfect. Carlos arrived on time and was a pleasure to chat with on the drive out to the site. Once there he regaled us with tons of interesting information about the ruins, its reconstruction, and the history of the area and its people. It's obvious that Carlos loves his job and his enthusiasm was infectious. Highly recommended!

We booked Carlos for a 5 hour excursion to Teotihuacan. The tour started and ended exactly on time. Our drive to the site was quiet. Carlos is not one of those guides that talks constantly. We took in the scenery around us and Carlos allowed us to do that while still pointing out things of interest. The tour itself was very enjoyable and informative. He has a deep knowledge of Teotihuacan's history. The options to walk or drive from one site to the next were appreciated. Carlos is a great guide.

I began the Teotihuacan short tour with very basic knowledge of the background and history of the city and pyramids, but I walked away with an incredible education. In addition to the tour, Carlos happily provided recommendations on food/places to eat and other points of interest in Mexico City. I would definitely take another tour with Carlos!

My husband and I enjoyed our time with Carlos and the trip to Teotihuacan. Carlos showed up at our hotel room on time at 7:00am. It made it easy to not have to worry about how to get out to the site and just be driven directly there. I feel like it was worth the added expense. Carlos did a great job of explaining the history of the pyramids and showing us to some sights that we might have missed had we gone to the pyramids on our own. Overall it was a convenient and hassle-free way to see the pyramids!

Nous avons effectué 3 visites avec Carlos, et cette appréciation vaut pour les trois. Carlos s'est avéré un guide extraordinaire, d'une grande culture, sachant se mettre à notre rythme. Cerise sur le gâteau, son sens de l'humour et son humanité. Quand il dit que son Français est basique,il est modeste. Notre échange s'est fait le plus souvent dans cette langue, l'Anglais ne servant qu'à compenser les manques. Vraiment, trois jours de rêve avec Carlos que nous remercions du fond du coeur.

Beyond the content of the tour, he was mindful of our physical limitations (no Temple of the Sun for our old legs!). And in a most usual twist, he recognized that the site was being visited by a political bigwig, with security concerns disrupting all normal exits. Thanks to his experience in the area, he found a route out through a delightful little town!

Carlos is a very safe driver and his car was extremely comfortable for 4 people. He was also very patient and considerate of our 2 teens. We highly recommend Carlos and his fascinating tour!

He made sure that we saw areas of the park that we may have otherwise missed, and he was always careful to put things in to context. On a practical note, Carlos is considerate of physical limitations, and made sure that we were as comfortable as possible.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Lorenzo I am very pleased that you had a wonderful time at Teotihuacán

Carlos was on time and very personable. His knowledge and willingness to communicate the history of Mesoamerican Mexico was outstanding. We would recommend using him for any tour. We talked about some of the tours he does and it's clear that as a Mexico City native with good language skills and understanding of the history he will provide any traveler with a good experience. Our day with Carlos was the best one we spent in Mexico City.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure Elmo it is always easy to be with people so interested in Mexican culture and traditions.

Had an amazing time at the pyramids with Carlos. He was very informative and easy to converse with and you could sense the passion that he had for his city and culture. I felt that we saw exactly what we needed to see and did not waste any time in tourist trap areas. He answered any question we had enthusiastically and the pace of the tour was perfect for the site. Excellent recommendations for local places to eat as well. Overall a wonderful experience and we are so happy that we went with Carlos.

Carlos was a great host, as we went out to Teotihuacan he gave us a brief history about the location and past inhabitants. We went to the pyramid of the feathered serpent, the pyramid of the sun and the moon. We had a lovely lunch at Mi Mexico restaurant and sampled some tequila and wine. It was a great day

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you I had a great day too.

This was an excellent tour made even better because of Carlos' knowledge of the area but also his ability to understand the needs and interests of those of us on the tour. In our conversation about the area he heard us mention the maguey plant and helped us learn more about it and all the different ways the Aztecs used this incredible plant. Carlos is very flexible and listened to our needs and customized our time to make it absolutely the tour ever! He also made sure we had time at the basilica.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Again Toni thanks a lot and specially thank you for having trusted me being your guide.

The tour with Carlos of Teotihuacan was probably the highlight of our trip to Mexico City! We were a group of five, two adults and 3 teenagers. Carlos managed to keep us all happy and energetic--no small task given the distances and the altitude. He was a font of knowledge, answering even our most obscure questions. "What did they do with the sewage?" "How did the common people worship?" In addition, all the logistical aspects worked out just swell. All in all, highly recommended.

We learned so much about about Teotihuacan - its history and the people who lived there -- thanks to our guide, Carlos. The tour was the perfect amount of time for our almost 11-year old son. Carlos's explanations (we all speak Spanish and used that language with Carlos for the most part, but his English is flawless) were accessible to all. Our son loved meeting a Mexican hairless dog as well. First time with Tours by Locals - but not our last. Great way to see a country and learn about its people.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Muchas gracias Lee por la oportunidad de poder enseñarles un poco de mi cultura. Saludos.

What a WONDERFUL tour we had with Carlos! He is like the wise history teacher you've always wanted. My husband and I had gone to Teotihuacan last year without a guide, and this time, returning with friends, we thought we would try a guided experience. Best decision and investment! Carlos is a wonderful, knowledgeable guide, loves the subject matter, has tons of information, and made the overall experience incredibly enjoyable. He gave us time to enjoy and space and has a great, calming personality.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Darcy I was pleased that I could show you things that you could not saw on your first trip.

Today was amazing! Once again, Carlos' knowledge of his country, the pyramids, its people, the Basilica de Guadalupe are astounding. We've seen more and learned more than we ever would have expected. Once again, Carlos was waiting for us when we walked out our hotel door and then was patient as we needed to get to a bank to exchange dollars for pesos. Our 17 year old son is completely connected to Carlos in all we do and learn.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Francisco is also a young adult that absorbs all that's been told to him and very interested in learning too.

Carlos picked us up right on time and during our drive to Teotihuacan he related information about the tour and answered our other questions about Mexico City. His tour was very well structured and accommodated one of our party who had trouble climbing stairs. His descriptions and explanations were very complete and informative. During lunch he also was able to answer our questions about some of the art and murals we had seen since being in Mexico City. I would highly recommend Carlos as a guide.

Carlos was a wonderful guide. He was prompt and courteous. He had considerable knowledge of the area and was very flexible in terms of the way he delivered the tour by not only picking us up at our hotel, but also dropping us back off at the airport for our flight back to Australia. We were a party of 3 - one of which had a bad knee injury. We were able to do everything possible at Teotihuacan because of Carlos's personalised planning/walking schedule. Thank you Carlos!!!

Carlos was a wonderful tour guide! He arrived on time, and on the way to Teotihuacan went over the history of the area, the people that inhabited it, and the cultural shifts that took place. He's incredibly knowledgable about everything from food and artwork to archaeology and religion! He timed the tour so that we arrived before the tour buses and practically had the pyramids to ourselves in the morning. We appreciated his depth of knowledge and everything he taught us! Thanks again!

Carlos knew so much about the history of the pyramids and also had some opinions that he shared, which i found very interesting. He was also very reliable despite the fact that the marathon was on the day we left and the roads to the hotel were blocked. I would definitely recommend him if you want to know details about the history and to see the museums that are often overlooked.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Tracy: thanks a lot I enjoyed a lot touring the pyramids with you cause you had questions that were interesting too. Hope that on your next trip to Mexico we can contact again and see what's new on Teotihuacan.

Carlos was extremely punctual, professional and pleasant to be with. Additionally he is extremely flexible and truly shows a passion for Mexico City and a desire to ensure you see everything. We ended up staying with Carlos for over 12hrs, even though the tour was only scheduled for 5hrs. Carlos didn't mind at all! Overall and excellent guide for any trip to MC

Carlos was a fabulous tour guide. He met us right on time at the airport Marriott Courtyard where we had a dayroom and drove us out to the pyramids in his car (that thankfully had icy cold air-conditioning). He was very easy going and happy to modify the tour to our needs since we had not acclimated to the heat nor the 7,500 foot elevation. Lunch was at a terrific local place where we got to sample ant eggs stuffed into jalapenos.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank´s Kimberly I am very happy that you enjoyed the tour to the piramids, but you still need to taste the maguey worms those are great too.

We were most pleased with our tour of Teotihuacan, and amazed by Carlos' depth of knowledge, far beyond what we would have expected. As much as a tour, Carlos presented a short course on the history and archeology of the site in the context of the cultures, religious practices and environmental influences of the era, as well as explaining different interpretations by the experts over time; but all on our level and in a warm and friendly way as only someone with complete knowledge of a subject can do.
