Jonas was our guide for the city and this pyramids tour. Even though he has probably been to this site many times, he took his time and went through the notable stops and gave us so much more context to how these pyramids were built and used. He walked us around the told us the many stories behind them and made it so much more enjoyable and engaging than just looking at them. He even took us to a great restaurant nearby and we enjoyed lunch with a view of the pyramids. Hire him if you want a good day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your genuine interest and enjoyable company. Hope to see you guys back soon!

Jonas is an excellent tour guide, and we had a great time on this tour. Seeing the Cathedral and surrounding area was very moving. Following that with an extensive tour of the pyramids and grounds at Teotihuacan, we felt immersed in centuries of Mexican history. We ended with a delicious, local lunch and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Gracias, Jonas!

Clay DavidsonUnited States
Jonas was a truly reliable and thoughtful tour guide. He provided us with great advice on what we should see, and was always flexible and worked with what we wanted to do. My fiancee, her 9 year old daughter and I felt very safe the whole trip. Jonas is very knowledgeable regarding all the sites we visited, and of Mexican history and folklore. I highly recommend Jonas as a tour guide.

Cj BradyUnited States
We recently had the opportunity to enjoy both a cooking class and tour of Teotihuacán with Jonas. He is a wonderful guide --- intelligent, enthusiastic, with the heart of a true explorer! Jonas is conscientious and accommodating and truly went the extra mile to ensure that our group (five adults ranging in age from 23-58) had a unique and thorough experience. Thank you!
Tony TayagHonolulu, HI, United States
Jonas was an excellent tour guide. He was able to answer all our various questions about Mexico City and Teotihuacan Pyramids. He was very interesting and laid back. I would highly recommend him and this tour for anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Tony, glad I could keep you interested after so many hours of flight. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in Mexico City!
Homer PorterUnited States
Jonas is an outstanding tour guide and we highly recommend him. We engaged him for a tour of the Teotihuacan pyramids. We had an interesting and informative tour of the pyramids, the mural museum and the residence excavations. Jonas was very knowledgeable of the history of the pyramids and the archaeologist's changing theories and techniques over the years. He is very personable and it is enjoyable to spend time with him. He is very fluent in English and was right on schedule. He is a perfect tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow, I can hardly think of a more flattering testimonial, thanks Hop, hope to see you again soon!
Shelley HeckerUnited States
We had a great tour to the pyramids and to dinner with Jonas. He was great with my three kids, stopping for snacks and letting them sample local palm juice, and made it fun and easy for us to enjoy our 8 hour layover in Mexico City. His knowledge allowed us to truly appreciate Teotihuacan and was just the right length for the kids to have fun without getting too tired. He also gave us some tips for exploring the city when we came back through on our return trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks and hope you feel like spending more time in Mexico City or Mexico next time!
Ardice HartryUnited States
Jonas was very personable and knowledgeable. We enjoyed both his company and the tour. He allowed us to set the pace for the tour and answered our numerous questions with detail and patience. Throughout the tour, he explained to us how the consensus among archaeologists has changed over the years, so we had a good sense of what was known and what is not yet understood about Teotihuacan. We plan to return to Mexico and are certainly going to ask Jonas again to be our tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your nice appraisal, hope to see you back soon!
Five Stars for Jonas who took two of us on a wonderful trip to see Teotihuacan and then to an Artisan Community workshop and a wonderful lunch—he pulled it all out of the hat on short notice for us as we only had a few days in Mexico City.We also spent Saturday doing the biking tour that he had laid out using the Ecobikes in the City.Cant say enough wonderful things about Jonas and highly recommend him to the next lucky tourists in Mexico City looking for a guide and using your wonderful site.Fiona&David
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Glad you could still have the bike experience and thanks for your nice words!
Kabir DuggalUnited States
Great tour guide. Took a lot of interest in personalizing the trip to match our interest. Very knowledgable and passionate as well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, nice to have such an interested audience and to go in-depth!
El tour con Jonas a las pirámides de Tehotihuacan fue muy bueno. Tanto las explicaciones del sitio por Jonas, como el vehículo de transporte fueron muy buenos. Las informaciones que recibimos fueron muy completas. Vimos muchas zonas con detenimiento y el tiempo dedicado fue el adecuado. Quedamos encantados con el tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Gracias, espero que también les fue bien en el resto de su viaje por México
Mindy SloopUnited States
Our guide Alexandra was wonderful. She was more than accommodating with our needs. We had an array of ages in our group (15-75) and she made sure we were all taken care of. I would take another trip with her and would specifically request Alexandra. Her knowledge was expansive and she answered all our questions. Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for choosing us, I am glad you liked the program I made up for you and the good care Alejandra took of you!
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: In the unusual case where a guide can't personally deliver a tour, the traveler is notified in advance and given the opportunity to cancel or accept the substitute.
Detailed, clear, informative!
Teresa AnderssonUnited States
Jonas provided us with an INCREDIBLE tour of Teotihuacan and Mexico City! He is extremely knowledgable, responsive, and easy-going. He was able to tailor our tour to fit our interests as well as experience levels (1st visit for my husband, 5th visit for me). As an anthropologist, Jonas allowed us to take home more than just pretty pictures of Mexico - at each site, he shared with us the history or interesting information only a local would know! We highly recommend Jonas as your guide to Mexico!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks to both of you, it was a pleasure to visit so many places together with you during our busy two days; and to learn some Chinese on the way;-)
We can HIGHLY recommend Jonas as a tour guide. He is an engaging and warm personality and he has an extensive knowledge of the history. There was no effort too much to give us an explanation about the Mexican life of today and the past. Mexico City was one of the highlights of our vacation thanks to Jonas.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Yet another visitor that will talk good about Mexico City and Mexico! Thanks for the positive comments, het was leuk om landgenoten op bezoek te hebben;-)
Cory KrueckebergUnited States
Jonas was great. Knowledgeable, friendly, punctual. And Teotihuacan is spectacular. Definitely recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: HI Cory, thanks for the testimonial, hope you get some extra inspiration on this country's great history to finish the movie!
Jonas was a great guide, his history knowledge made the tour a lot richer. It was great to know more about the pyramids, not just to climb them. Thanks Jonas!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure to show you something of Mexico's great past during your day off... hope you'll be back soon!
We were lucky to get Jonas as his background in Anthropology helped so much. He could explain the relevance of so many artifacts. Without him we would not have had a clue. Also he was easy to be with. Certainly we feel he maximised our 7 or so hours in Mexico City. We will recommend him to our friends. Ian in the US.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ian, it was certainly nice to refresh your memories from thirty years back! I also had a great time with the two of you. Sorry to hear you had back luck with the weather during your second part of your holidays in Chile. Hope to see you back soon!
