Private daytrip from Mexico City

Come to discover the most celebrated capital in Mesoamerica during the Classic period (200 BC - 650 AD). I recommend to spend the whole day in this site because there are many noteworthy things to see. Due to the dimensions of the archaeological zone is very difficult to enjoy its cultural offerings in one visit, but I maximize the tour with my designed routes. It is just one hour drive from Mexico City. Let me show you the hidden delights of this metropolis and admire the mural painting of Teotihuacan and enjoy the visit with a major understanding and appreciation of the plazas and palace architecture as well as the underground drainage system. See one of the best examples of sculpting and painting of the Feathered Serpent Pyramid with its unique stone sculptures of plumed serpents. Climb the pyramids, explore palaces and structures, and feel immersed in the time of this city. I'll make your visit hard to forget.
During Summer, if you want to have an early start at sunrise just let me know it.


We'll start at the Citadel compound to see the Feathered Serpent Pyramid with its unique stone sculptures of plumed serpents.

A Recent Review of this tour

Monica's tour of Teotihuacan was perfect for our family. She was understanding of our 11 & 12 year old's interests and stamina for the circumstances. Her knowledge accounted for a tour filled with brilliant stories and interesting facts presented with context our children understood. Monica's experience especially helped us to successfully navigate our list for the day despite a very busy holiday crowd. Monica is a dedicated professional with a delightful, agreeable personality.
