Carlos was knowledgeable, personable, and a safe driver. We enjoyed a memorable afternoon with him, a true highlight of our holiday in Ciudad de Mexico.
Carlos was a wonderful guide on our visit to Teotihuacan. His extensive knowledge and interest made the tour very worthwhile and interesting. We would not hesitate recommending Carlos as a guide for anyone looking to improve their understanding of Mexican history and culture.

We take all feedback seriously and have, as always, attempted to clarify with our customer if there was anything our guide, or ToursByLocals, could have done differently to have made this tour a 5-Star experience.
Carlos is a professional tour guide. I booked the airport pickup at 7am and he actually arrived much earlier than our pickup time and thus we can start our tour in the early morning. He is very knowledgeable about the history and the stories of Teotihuacan. He tried his best to answer all of our questions and fulfill our needs during the whole tour. It is a very nice experience and a great start of our trip in Mexico.

Carlos was a great guide for Teotihuacan. He was very knowledgeable and very polite. He had a laid-back manner that we really appreciated. No problems with language at all. We don't speak Spanish but Carlos is a fluent English speaker. This has got to be the best way to see Teotihuacan. You get such more out of it than you would just going on your own, but it is much more personal than a large group tour, in that you get to tailor the tour a bit to your own interests and needs.

Carlos was on time, even early, to pick us up at the airport. That was great! The tour was good and Carlos knew about all the hidden areas to see. Nice choice for lunch, too.
Gregory MooreUnited States
Carlos was very knowledgeable about the site as well as other aspects of history concerning Mexico. The tour was very flexible and accommodating. Would definitely recommend this tour.
Carlos was a wonderful guide and picked us up a few minutes early. He was easy to communicate with before our tour too, as we had to switch pickups. He told us a lot about the ruins and answered our questions. He was patient and encouraging with our kids who wanted to climb every mound and look in shops. We felt, tho, we could've learned more about T during the 45-min drives and on the tour (other guides we passed seemed to go into more—or perhaps just different— detail).
Carlos was excellent guide! We were with 2 little kidos and he was very patient. Also was very professional, told us everything about the sites and more and answered all our questions. Highly recommend!

Carlos was on time, and we instantly felt very comfortable with him as our guide. He spoke clearly and was knowledgeable about the civilization of Teotihuacan where our tour was to take place. Our tour was timed perfectly and we never felt rushed. Carlos made a point to show us details at Teotihuacan that seemed extra specia8to view. He made our tour complete. I do not think we would have enjoyed it as much without Carlos as our guide.
Kathleen FlanaganUnited States
An amazing and thorough tour of Teotihuacan with great attention to all the history and culture revealed by all the structures as well as the two well-known pyramids. Carlos has a wealth of information about the Citadel, the tunnel beneath it, and the houses and palaces of priests and other residents of this lost city of 200,000. He is a dedicated and knowledgeable guide who made our visit an experience of a lifetime. If you want the real deal and not just a superficial climb up a pyramid, get Carlos.

Carlos was delightful! He picked us up, on time, at our hotel in Mexico City. He drove us straight to Teotihuacán, and gave us a thorough historical background. Teotihucan is a lot of walking, & half-way, Carlos gave us the option to have us continue with him, in which case we would have to walk all the way back, or he could go back for the car and meet us at the end. We chose that & saved repeat walking. This left more time for him to show us the end portions. We really enjoyed our day with Carlos!
Maury SullivanUnited States
Carlos was an amazing guide. Our family (including two boys aged 13 and 10) hired him to take us to Teotihuacan. He was prompt and is thoughtful and very knowledgeable about the history of Teotihuacan. The pacing of the tour was perfect and it was wonderful to hear his insights. Can't say enough about this tour and about Carlos. Highly recommend. We also appreciated that he didn't steer us to any touristy shops or restaurants.
Juliet C.United States
Carlos is a superb guide. He is knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. He answers questions readily and is responsive to clients' interests and needs. At the same time, he has a full itinerary for the tour and makes sure to start and finish on schedule. Highly recommended.
Brigitte LeeUnited States
Carlos arrived promptly at the appointed time and he patiently answered all of our questions about Mexico and Teotihuacan throughout the duration of the tour. He was articulate and knowledgeable and he shared his passion for Mexico's rich culture and historical heritage. Carlos offered detailed information that brought to life Mexico's and Teotihuacan's ancient civilization. We would gladly recommend Carlos for others to fully experience Mexico's past through Teotihuacan.
Angela ZhangUnited States
Thank you so much Carlos! Everything went very smoothly, from pick-up to the pyramid tour 1 hour away. Carlos clearly is both extremely knowledgeable both in the content of Teotihuacan history, but also the finer details of how to lead a great tour with pacing and good storytelling. He was very patient and understanding with all of our questions, including my parents who speak English as a second language.
Daniela BeattieUnited States
Carlos was amazing! He was very knowledgeable and he answered any questions we had for him with enthusiasm. This tour was perfect for me and boyfriend who won't be visiting long so avoiding a big touristy trap tour was worth every penny. The pyramids are breathtaking but we enjoyed them so much more because Carlos was with us giving us information on their extensive history and it made us appreciate them way more because of it. I would not hesitate booking another tour with him.
Joshua BroussardUnited States
Exceptionally intelligent tour guide with vast historical knowledge of Mexico. Carlos was awesome and accommodating! I had a really short notice booking (less than 12 hours advance notice) and he made it happen! Couldn't have asked for a better guide.
Mary Beth LeeUnited States
Carlos was a wonderful, well-informed tour guide. Our family of three (including a teenager) enjoyed our tour with him, as well as our round trip drive from Mexico City. He told us a lot, answered every question, and moved everything at a gentle pace. Highly recommend.
William WassonUnited States
Carlos was an amazing guide. My wife and I learned so much on our tour. He is worth every penny and I would highly recommend him. In fact, we are looking at returning to Mexico City in the near future partly because we can go on another tour with Carlos.
Brock LascaraUnited States
We just got back from an amazing day with Carlos! Carlos is very knowledgeable on a whole range of topics- art, history, archeology, politics. He significantly enhanced our experience walking around the historic city center in Mexico City and accommodated our last minute change of plans to visit the city center instead of the pyramids.
James StoneUnited States
We have worked with Carlos before as a tour guide in Mexico City. As always, he was flexible, professional and knowledgeable and pleasant. His English is excellent. I fully recommend him,
Isabel BrionesUnited States
Carlos is PERFECTO! He was right on time, took us to get coffee and breakfast, and made sure we stayed ahead of the big tour buses. Since we had a "head start" we were able to take our time and learn so much! He was knowledgeable and an all around great guide.
James WackUnited States
Carlos, on behalf of my family, Maureen and Maria, I would like to thank you for such an amazing tour of Teotihuacan. We had been planning this trip for over a year and we're so happy that you were there to lead us through this magical city. Always a considerate and relaxed pace, we never felt rushed. The stories, theories and perspectives were thought-provoking and profound. This was a fascinating adventure for my family. Thank you so much! ~ James (Pittsburgh, PA)
Maureen MasonUnited States

We enjoyed an outstanding visit to Teotihuacan today with Carlos. He shared his amazing wealth of knowledge and insightful passion during our well-paced extensive tour. Carlos was very easy to talk with, patient, respectful and considerate. We are looking forward to enjoying another tour with Carlos soon and highly recommend him without reservation. You will be very happy you chose Carlos for your next tour adventure.
Jeffrey BarudinUnited States
We had a great time on this tour. The site itself was beautiful and fascinating. Carlos, our guide, was very knowledgeable and friendly, if not a little dry. We're very glad we made this a part of our visit to Mexico City - a definite recommend for everyone. Go there first thing in the morning to beat the crowds!
