Mario was a pro--arrived on time, communicated his arrival, and had bottled water in the car for us. He expertly navigated us through the entry and tour of the ruins. We also enjoyed his commentary on the various sites in CdMX as we drove out of town.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I really enjoyed the tour with you
Suzanne SomersUnited States
Mario is very professional and knowledgeable. He took good care of us and gave us excellent information, not only about Teotihuacan but about Mexico City in general. What a genuinely nice person! We would definitely hire him again. Plus the restaurant he suggested was excellent.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I learn from my clients during the last years of my life working as a guide and I gladly share them.
Marilyn RosalesUnited States
This tour was the highlight of my trip and the perfect amount of time in Teotihuacan. Mario was clearly very knowledgable and passionate about everything from the car ride to the site and back. There wasn't a moment where he wasn't giving us amazing insight and tips. We enjoyed the perfect balance between education and opportunity to explore the site as a couple. It was all perfectly planned out. Mario made our trip incredible and I will recommend him to friends and clients visiting the city!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We both feel the same pride of our roots and we see that they were intelligent and with many advanced knowledge for their time. Saludos!
Mark TarroUnited States
Mario is very passionate about the history of Teotihuacan and Mexico as a whole which made the journey even more enjoyable. Would definitely recommend him as a tour guide for tour trip to the Pyramids!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are very kind with me!
Nathan MackUnited States
Very comfortable ride and a great pace through the park. Half day was legit perfect but you'll need to be able to walk quickly and be happy to only scratch the surface of the history. Which was exactly what we wanted! Info provided was great and the private car ride allowed us to ask questions and learn other things about Mexican history, culture, food, etc.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: This our goal show you our rich heritage in a private tour
Hedy CohenUnited States
Pleasant and a good driver
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Hedy, As you said YOU DIDN'T UNDERSTAND ME where I was to meet you and why you didn't call me at the moment to question me again the instructions that I gave you before and don't looking for me in another place an hour later. I was waiting for you at meeting point for gave you the next part of your tour. Thank you!
Jesse MathewsUnited States
Book with Mario! Seriously, do it! He arrived on time at our AirBnB location. He brought us safely to Teotihuacan and back to our room. Along the way he indulged us with his wealth of knowledge regarding Mexico City, his country and the people residing there both past and present. His passion for understanding and teaching us the history of his country was evident from the moment we began the drive to the pyramids. We really enjoyed our time spent with Mario and would highly recommend his services.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I really enjoy travelling in my wonderful country. I'm waiting for your next trip.

Mario was an excellent guide at Teotihuacan and throughout the entire process. He responded quickly to some last-minute logistical changes I had before the date of the tour, gave us valuable historical and contemporary information about Mexico City and Teotihuacan the day of the tour, and dropped us off safely at the end. Mario is a true professional that also feels familiar, and he pays attention to every detail. I highly recommend taking a tour with Mario!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Nancy, I enjoy travelling all over my country and show you the very best it has. I hope see you soon in our country with your baby!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I invite you to do others tours all over Mexico and know our rich heritage! So long!
Scott OgdenUnited States
Mario is simply put, a fantastic guide. We felt very lucky that we was available on short notice. We learned so much; not only about the Piremedes, but CDMX in general on the drives in/out of the city which were almost as fun as Teotihuacan itself. His background as a retired architect made the tour extra special- especially if you are into small details (e.g. angles, cracks, and drainage!!!). Would not hesitate to call him again on our return for another tour. Great photo angles too. Thanks Mario!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks to you, you are a great travellers and I'll be wait you and remember I have experience a very much other tours all over Mexico please ask me and I'll customize your favorite tour. My family and Matias and me send you un Hasta Luego!
Matthew ButlerUnited States
The ride to and tour of Teotihuacan with Mario was terrific. My wife and I traveled with our two young children (ages 5 and 3) and Mario was very accommodating. He explained so much about Mexico City as we were traveling out of the city and was very detailed in his discussion of Teotihuacan as well. This trip was the perfect close to our week-long visit to Mexico City.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You have a great kids are very good travellers and I hope see you again to show you more of my amazing country. Hasta luego!
Christopher RyanUnited States
Mario was a knowledgeable guide and it was a very comfortable trip. We learned more about the pyramids than we expected. We went on the spring equinox and Mario's timing allowed us a view of the site before the crowds arrived. We also learned a lot about the areas that we were traveling through. Mario was very accommodating to our abilities and questions and adapted the visit as necessary. We would be happy to have Mario as a guide when we return to CDMX.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: And another interesting places in my country are waiting for you. Hasta luego!
Janice SpencerUnited States
Mario was mature, knowledgeable, courteous, friendly, prompt, efficient, accommodating, and passionate about his culture and people. I feel honored that he shared his love of Mexico City and the pyramids with me. I learned so much in such a short time. I would never have seen or understood a fraction of what I did without Mario. Best tour guide I have ever had.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, you are very kind with me
Benjamin T.United States
Mario was a good tour guide and showed great knowledge. He was quick to respond to our emailed questions before the trip and was flexible with the itinerary on the day of the trip. I originally chose Mario because of his reasonable pricing compared to other tours and his high ratings. He did not disappoint and I highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are very kind with me. Tks.
Michael McferranUnited States
Mario was excellent and I highly recommend this as the perfect way to visit Tehotihuacan. He picked us up on time at our apartment and gave is some local history on the drive out. Once at the site he happily took my mother to visit the museum as I climbed to the top. He was very informative and made for a real enjoyable experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure serving you in this tour

Mario was terrific. He was prompt on pick up and communicated well beforehand. As a party of 5 our children are 6,6,4 and he was wonderful and engaging with them as well as us. Good English skills.

Mario was punctual, courteous, and came with a spacious and clean vehicle. He had a good knowledge of the areas of the tour. His language was somewhat difficult to understand and his responses to questions were sometimes difficult to follow or off point. We enjoyed our time with Mario, but I wouldn't recommend him unconditionally.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: In that moment you should have asked me to repeat for you correctly and I would give you all the information. Thank you for the review.
Highly recommended. Kind and very flexible. Adapted everything according to our needs. Comfortable car also.

Johanna CummingsWashington, DC, United States
Mario is the ultimate gentleman, a kind and helpful guide for this 75-year-old traveler who is not too comfortable on uneven paving surfaces. He made sure I was well looked after and supported as we toured this ancient site. Occasionally, I had difficulty following his syntax when I asked questions in English, but I could fill in the blanks on the Internet.the half-day option is a great way to go because you avoid a lot of traffic.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the rating and comment. You are very kind with me. Thank you for this great feedback, it'll help me become better at what I do.
Matthew BradyUnited States
Mario was excellent! He shared with us his great knowledge of Teotihuacan - and of other sights along the way to and from our apartment. He was very prompt, and he accommodated our desires along the way - such as for taking time to shop a bit. We would be very excited to work with him again - a true professional with a personal touch!
