This is the perfect tour for wonks. Carlos knows an incredible amount about mesoamerican cultures, and you will learn so much from him. We really enjoyed getting a private tour, it was very comfortable and flexible. Highly recommended.
Simon ReptonUnited States
We had a wonderful tour with Carlos. He managed 5 of us, with some speaking English and some Spanish. His driving was great and we would certainly use him again if the chase arose.
Melinda NessUnited States
Our trip with Carlos was nothing short of perfect. He met us at the hotel on time and it was smooth sailing from there. Carlos is a wealth of knowledge about both sites. These were places I had wanted to visit since I was a kid and Carlos brought them both to life. You should not hesitate to book this day with him. PS Leave early and do this on a weekend and you have both places to yourself!
Anthony VillarrealUnited States
Thank you to Carlos for your knowledge and all the driving. I really enjoyed the tour and glad to have been able to visit Tula. You can't go wrong when choosing Carlos for your day tour to the ancient sites. Early arrival, safe driver, and answers to any questions you may have.

We had an amazing tour with Carlos! He is a fantastic guide and EXTREMELY knowledgable about Mesoamerican history and Mexico at large. Best for people who are academically inclined and interested in delving into a detailed history. We would certainly use him in the future if/when we return to Mexico City.

We came to Mexico for the archaeology and a local update on new information. Carlos did not disappoint. His wealth of knowledge was outstanding. As an ambassador of the culture he was genuinely proud and enthusiastic. The Tula and Teotihuacan tour is a must see for the most important sites for both civilizations. The tour was well paced and very walkable. Thanks Carlos!
Dawn CantwellUnited States
Outstanding! Carlos' knowledge of this history is comprehensive. He avoided historical narrative. Instead, and as good scholars must, he explained the various historical theories, embraced their limitations, and showed us how theories have changed through time integrating new evidence once uncovered. Always gracious and infinitely patient, Carlos was the commensurate host and guide. We have taken scholarly tours in many places on many topics and say without hesitation Carlos is special among his peers.
Mary BergUnited States
Carlos did a great job, knew his information and made the trip fun and educational. He accomodated our needs and desires (changed the order of the tour so that my husband could take better photographs and accomodated my need to not climb too many stairs). His english is excellent! He is a very polite and culturally sensitive guide. In short - use this guide!
Sam StelletelloUnited States
Very informative. Great lunch spot.

We are glad to have Carlos as our guide. The time we had to climb and explore the sites, local food he recommends and adequate information of both sites(including the plants) make it a well worth trip.
Yin PangUnited States
Carlos was very friendly and professional, he had extensive knowledge of the history of these pyramids. We had a great time there.
Carlos is an excellent Guide who can and does discuss many other topics. His English is excellent and impressive with the knowledge of the area and the history of changes to the sites. He was very accommodating of our physical limitations and maintained a slower pace for which we were grateful.
Alon KindlerUnited States
Carlos was a fantastic tour guide for my recent tour to Tula and Teotihuacan. He had interesting information for every area we explored and he was able to answer all my questions. We also had nice conversations about the tour sites and many other subjects. His English is perfect and I would recommend him for everyone.
Paul ShrodeTyler, TEXAS, United States
Carlos was the Perfect guide. He helped us handle a baggage claim issue before we even left the airport, he was knowledgeable & very respectful. When we return to Mexico we will definitely use his services again. What a great ambassador for his country; you can't go wrong by employing Carlos.
Carlos is really a knowledgable man. And he is very kind with a good sense of humor. We really look forward for another trip with him to Taxco this Friday.
Carlos was knowledgeable and very helpful in all respects. Added many great background comments that added to our tour.

Lisa VolleUnited States
Carlos was amazing! He talked to us not only about the history, the artifacts but anything else we asked of him. We made connections with other sites and historical times. He was polite, kind, courteous and knowledgeable. We appreciate him so much! We plan to return to Mexico City and will choose Carlos again. Hasta pronto, Carlos!!!!
Gene StarkUnited States
Carlos was on-time, had his identification clearly visible, so there was no confusing who he was. Carlos was very knowledgeable of the two archaeological sites, and did a great job of describing not only the sites, but the disagreements in the archaeological community for the sites. He also allowed me to set the pace while walking and taking pictures, never rushing or trying to get me to move along. Great job overall.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Gene it was my pleasure, I hope you will soon use again ToursByLocals
Richard BergmanUnited States
Carlos is an 0utstading guide! Extremely knowledgable and very nice person. Excellent and safe driver with patience despite terrible traffic. We would recommend to anyone who is sincerely interested in the anthropology of Mexico. Was able to answer any question with confidence and gave very clear explanations. Perfect idiomatic English.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Richard I had a great time with you and your wife, Thanks again for your confidence in my work.
Bruce RilingUnited States
What a wonderful, eloquent man! He said his father had also been a tour guide in Mexico and I believe him. Carlos is flexible and can move in and out topics; philosophy, ancient religious beliefs, or current economics in Mexico City. He tirelessly took us through both historical sites inside and out. He is also a very safe driver. It was worth every penny, but do pay attention; he is a fountain of knowledge.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Bruce I am happy that you really had a nice experience with my work
Knowledgeable and personable. Patient and responsive to our questions. Fit the tour to our interests.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much it was a pleasure for me to show you this two magic places
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your rating.
Julie AndrewsUnited States
Excellent guide. Great knowledge of Teotihuacan and Tula. He was able to accommodate all our needs from intellectual to wandering photographer in our group. Very safe driver, fun to be with, nice person all around. Would take another tour with him anytime!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Julie thanks for all your great comments and confidence in taking a tour.
Carlos is an excellent tour guide. He picked me up on time. He was considerate and patient in explaining each site. He made my teotihuacan and tula tour exciting and informational. Many thanks to Carlos for his giving me such a good memory as in Mexico. Mexico is a magical and historic place. It is worth a visit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comments
Hector ZuluagaUnited States
The tour was for my parents, they are extremely happy with the tour and specially with the tour guide. They said he was a very good guide and they look forward to future tours with him. Thank you for everything.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: On the contrary thank you very mucho for trusting us.
We enjoyed meeting Carlos and found him to be an excellent and knowledgable guide. We have no hesitation in recommending him to others.
Erin V.United States
AMAZING tour! Teotihuacan was more interesting than I imagined and Carlos had so much information that I would not have known from just a guide book. Tula was a long drive but also interesting because of their history. We would recommend Carlos for any tour in Mexico City :) Muchísimas gracias otra vez!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Erin I enjoyed the trip with you and your mom it's always easy when my travellers are so interested on the subjects of the tour.
