This tour was easily the tour of a lifetime for me. Antonio was clearly working behind the scenes to ensure that I was safe, well and taken care of. He organized a personalized tour of the pre-Hispanic City of Teotihuacan on a very short notice (I was in Mexico City on a busy business trip). Antonio was also thoughtful and patient in answering all of my (many) questions before (and even after) the trip. Would recommend him to any other travelers (including solo females) in a heartbeat! Thank you!

Josh KirschnerUnited States
Antonio is an exceptional guide with an incredible breadth and depth of knowledge of Mexican history, art and culture. For the Pyramids, he arranged a nice passenger van and driver for our family of 6. He gave us a highly-detailed tour of the pyramids and surrounding archaeological sites that really made them come alive - I can't imagine having gone to the pyramids without him. We used Antonio for two tours in Mexico City and if I return I would absolutely use Antonio again. I recommend him highly.
Omar LiraUnited States
Antonio was an excellent tour guide. This was our first experience with ToursByLocals and our first with Antonio we were very happy and pleased with the experience. I highly recommend Antonio, he is very knowledgeable patient and fun. You will definitely enjoy a tour lead by Antonio.
Antonio was friendly, knowledgeable and informative. We learnt so much from him about this amazing place. He made sure we got to the pyramids before the crowds so we could enjoy them in relative peace. His lunch choice was great and the car clean, comfortable and cool. We would definitely recommend him.
Toby AlfaroUnited States
Antonio was very knowledgeable about all of the places we visited (Teotihuacan and a monastery). He kept the conversation interesting and made good use of time. We didn't feel rushed at any time, and he moved along at a pace which matched our interests. Our kids (14 and 17) enjoyed talking to him and didn't get bored at all. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Antonio and would hire him again if/when we visit Mexico City again.

An excellent tour given by Antonio. We enjoyed very much and highly recommend him to anyone.
Allie SalinasUnited States
Antonio was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the pyramids, the history and new discoveries that are still being made at the site. The driver, also Antionio, was very professional. We had an amazing time at the Basilica, but the areas surrounding it were even lovelier. Antonio took us around and gave us all kinds of history. He did not have to and he went above and beyond. He really made our first full day in Mexico City special and eventful. Thank you Antonio for a great time. We recommend him!
Richard KleinUnited States

Howard FriedbergUnited States
Antonio met us with a smile on his face and soon we were all smiling. He led us on a wonderful experience aided by his knowledge and enthusiasm. First we went to a neighborhood coffee shop for some excellent beverages. Then on to a religious experience at the shrine of Guadalupe. Next on to the pyramids. He was everything you would want in a guide, he went at our pace, knew when to take us where to avoid the masses, and was always aware of our bladder capacities. We loved our day with him.
Gail E.United States
Fantastic tour. Would recommend to anybody. We were a family group of 8 adults. Antonio was extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and fun to be with. He was on time and organized and easy to communicate with. He accommodated minor changes we made. Thanks, Antonio!

Antonio provided a very professional, yet also privately customized tour of Teotihuacan. I found him to be pleasant and knowledgeable. He contacted me before the tour to offer customized itineraries. At the end of the tour he graciously assisted me with some emergency problems with banking and Western Union. I highly recommend his services.

Karen CollazoUnited States
What a great decision to book this tour! We did not have a long time to visit Mexico City and Antonio's tour was perfect! We had a great driver so our guide could explain the history on his ipad while driving to the pyramids. The place is HUGE and I am so glad we did not have to worry about finding it, parking and navigating around the place. We ate at a great restaurant near the site afterwards. We had time to see the Guadalupe Shrine which was unexpectantly special! Antonio is personable and fun!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Karen, it's great to hear you enjoyed every moment in this tour.
Une visite exceptionnelle, informations pertinentes, intéressantes et surtout répondant à nos attentes. Antonio parle un excellent francais, en plus de bien connaître son Pays il semble passionné de son métier. Je le recommande pour tous ces aspects. (Translation via Google translate) An exceptional visit, relevant, interesting and mostly met our expectations. Antonio speaks excellent French, in addition to knowing your country it seems passionate about his craft. I recommend it for all these aspects.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour Ginette, Merci de vos commentaires et Je suis heureux d' avoir répondu à vos attentes pour les deux tours.
Barbara WhitneyUnited States
Antonio was the perfect guide for our tour. He emailed us in advance to offer options for a side tour in addition to the pyramids. He was prompt and checked with us often during the day to be sure everything was satisfactory, offered options to drive certain sections of the site or walk. Lunch at an excellent restaurant. He is knowledgeable, supplemented the tour with photos and graphics on his iPad to enhance the explanations of the site. His manner is easy and friendly, and we highly recommend Antonio
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Barbara, Thank you for your comments and i always strive to offer a great tour and customer service.
Brandon GreenDC, United States
Antonio was tremendous. This is a great tour if you want to get out of the city for a day. Antonio is very professional, and perhaps the most knowledgeable tour guide we've experienced. He doesn't just know the general details, he can also dive into great specific detail at each stop. We travel the world and know a thing or two about tours and we highly recommend Antonio! He was also very accommodating to anything we asked.
Pete SzafraniecUnited States
This was a great tour. Antonio was on time, in a clean car and had a separate driver so that he can keep his attention on us. He adjusted the tour to suit a few custom needs and made changes on the fly to avoid the crowd. The restaurant for lunch was good and the whole day went smoothly. It was great to have a private and knowledgeable guide instead of being one of many in a group. Antonio even brought his ipad along in order to further explain things to us. I would definitely book with him again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Pete, i am pleased you had a great time in Teotihuacan with this private tour!
Nigel BatesUnited Kingdom

Norbert KleissendorfUnited States
Antonio did the Teotihuacan tour with me today and I was very impressed and pleased not only by his knowledge but also his patience and service level. It was a wonderful day and I have learned and seen so much thanks to him. The highlight of our tour clearly was our intensive chat with restaurateurs at work at the small mural sight of Teotihuacan. If you are interested in mesoamerican precolumbian cultures and enjoy good company I strongly recommend to get in touch with Antonio, he is the man!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Norbert, i am pleased that you really enjoyed the tour, learned a lot and hope you come back to Mexico city.

Antonio was interesting, punctual, and seemed to have thought of everything for our trip. I was impressed with his knowledge of pre-Columbian cultures, and I certainly learned a lot. Antonio has excellent English speaking ability and is easy to get along with. My friends and I felt that we'd made a new friend by the end of the tour. I highly recommend his tour to the ruins.

Terry Norton-WrightMARINA DEL REY, CALIFORNIA, United States
What a fantastic day! The way Antonio sets of this tour is wonderful! First you see the most revered places of worship in Mexico City present day. Then you travel back in time to the country's Pre-Hispanic Temples. What a great contrast! Make sure he takes you to the best restaurant for fresh Mexican food at the border of the Teotihaucan City.
Sue-Anne DropkinUnited States
Antonio knew a great deal about the great pyramids and made this civilization come alive for us. He is articulate, interesting and very accommodating. He was on-time and had the entire tour mapped out including a delicious lunch spot. We would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a very enthusiastic guide of ancient Mexico!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mrs. Dropkin, Thank you for your comments and i am happy you really enjoyed your tour and the food options i gave you.
Antonio was great from the moment the tour was booked. He took over and offered us a tour when another guide cancelled. He was excellent in his knowledge and enthusiasm when showing us around Teotihuacan. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to any other travellers.
