We had an amazing tour with Jorge. What a thrill to explore such an incredible sight with someone who actually works on it. We spent the entire day with him, first at Teotihuacan and then at a nearby colonial-era monastery. He offered insights not only on the history and cultures of the various peoples who lived in the area, but on the symbolism in their art and the methods used by the archaeologists on site. We got to see a couple of partially excavated apartments away from the main site where some beautiful murals are still preserved. We found it particularly helpful that his tour started early in the day by late morning there were long lines of people waiting for their turn to shuffle up and down the steps of the pyramids. It was a vastly more informative and fascinating experience than if we had gone by ourselves.
Teotihuacan is a must-see archaeology site just outside Mexico City. If you just want to see artifacts and reconstructed displays, the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City is a great treat. However, nothing can substitute the awe that you will feel during an actual visit at Teotihuacan. Me and my life visited in October and enjoyed a day of beautiful weather. Our guide Alex gave us a detailed and vivid description on how splendid this Pre-Hispanic city once was. We booked return transportation and both Alex and the driver are punctual, knowledgeable, courteous and very accommodating!
This Is actually a 10 star rating! Jorge was such an incredible guide who fascinated us with his vast knowledge of teotihuacan history. He showed us not only the pyramids, but took us to see many murals outside of the main park area, going above and beyond to follow our interests. So kind too!
Thanks to Jorge, we returned from the tour like after being to cinema watching some great blockbuster - about Atzteks, Maya, their rituals, etc etc. Highly recommended! Note: use sun protection and/or hat. Otherwise you will look like a shrimp after 4 hours under sun, even if it's 8 a.m.
