The tour was entirely satisfactory. Hector is very knowledgeable and interesting to talk to. The pyramids were spectacular, and the restored areas of the ruins that we visited were impressive. We topped off the day with a visit to a magnificent 16th century church at a former Augustinian convent.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Alfred. Thank you so much for your kind review. I truly enjoyed your conversation, company and your knowledge about Mexican films and bullfighting. Best regards.

Hector was an absolutely outstanding tour guide. Very knowledgeable of history, mexican culture, and a fascinating person too with interesting stories and thoughts. We are so grateful that we had him guiding us through the tour. There is a special feeling to connect to a civilization from long ago, with themes of life and death, moon and sun, and to reflect on how we are where we are in time. Hector guided us in that journey and we will certainly remember him for years to come. Thank you Hector!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Elena. Thank so much for your very generous review. It was a pleasure to tour the Grewal´s to Teotihuacan certainly a special place, where one wonders about the eternal misteries of life. Thank you for your wonderful conversation that started in front of the Moon pyramid.

After an early start, we visited the pyramids before the tour buses arrived. Having spent a day with Hector before, he wanted to make sure we got to see everything on our list. So we stopped at Villa of Guadalupe, a Church, and a bookstore on our way back to the city. Hector is very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Mexico. He made our trip a success!

I have not been in years to Careyes (1.30 hours south of PV), but probably you could explore that possibilty, specifically the Rosa Bella beach

Our tour to Teotihuacan was a fantastic experience! Hector was an expert guide and a warm host. His historical analysis and broad spectrum of knowledge gave depth and insight into the sites we visited. I took this tour with two friends during a lengthy layover in Mexico City; one of the best things I could have done. Great tour, unbelievable archaeological sites, and history brought to life thanks to our local guide. Thank you Hector!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Andrew, thank you so much, the other half of a good tour are great visitors and you three were fantastic! I would like to know how your son fared with the "jaguar" at school?. Chris asked me for the name of the Mesoamerican wind god, we didn't have pencil and paper, so he probably forgot the name, here it is, Ehecatl. If he has trouble trying to select one of the many representations of the God, please pass on him my mail and I will be happy to help. Regards

Hector was an amazing guide. His knowledge of history, art and heritage is phenomenal. He was patient and friendly and put us at ease. I highly recommend Hector. If you've never used the services of a guide before you should give Hector a try. We got more out of our visit to Mexico City than would be possible from reading a guide book. I came away with a deepened respect for Mexico and Meso America. Thank you, very much!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Russell thank you so much, I truly enjoyed your company, Lukas and you are great travel companions. Regards Hector

We cannot tell you how pleased we were, how happy, we were to meet and have our tour with Hector. He is absolutely wonderful. I say we because all three of us felt the same way, including Mr. and Mrs. Michael and Esther Kenner. We were thrilled with his helpful guidance. He arrived early, waited patiently. His knowledge of the region's deep history and architecture, remarkable intelligence, kindness and manners stunned us and we recommend him most highly. Thank you, most sincerely, Hector!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan. I had a great time with you all, indeed interesting and fun. I hope your husband found the cigars of his liking and that you had a great evening at the San Angel Inn. Regards.
