Teotihuacan Pyramids Private Tour from Mexico City

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Teotihuacan, a World Heritage-UNESCO archaeological park located outside of Mexico City, was once the most important city in Mesoamerica. Understanding the rich history of pre-Aztec civilizations is key to experiencing the site. Get ready for the incredible ruins— including sky-high pyramids and a painted temple— to be brought back to life on this fun and fact-filled, guided private tour.
  • An informative private tour of Teotihuacan with all entrance fees included
  • Enjoy guided visits to standout sites like the Pyramid of the Moon and Sun
  • Have history come alive with detailed explanations of pre-Aztec cultures
  • Private door-to-door transportation 
What to Expect
Your tour begins with a convenient hotel pickup and a short and scenic drive to Teotihuacan in a comfortable private vehicle. Built between the first and seventh centuries and covering an area of 8 square miles (21 square kilometers), Mexico’s “City of Gods” is packed with incredible sites to explore. Your guide will help you navigate the fascinating ruins, giving you background on the mysterious ancient people who once called Teotihuacan home. You’ll have the opportunity to discover less-visited temple complexes as well as standout attractions like the Pyramid of the Moon and the Pyramid of the Sun. Climb up the massive steps for an incredible panorama of the once-thriving city. Your guide will also take you to the Temple of Quetzalcoatl, where you’ll learn about the origins of the “feathered serpent” god. Get a peek at the latest archaeological findings while admiring the shrine's stone-cut designs and obsidian pillars. Continue to enrich your knowledge of the site with an optional visit to the Teotihuacan Museum, where you’ll find plenty of curious treasures and a miniature model of the entire city in its prime.

We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your tour so much Monica. We only work with guides who can adapt to the client and their needs. After all that is why guests choose a private tour, right?! It is such a different feeling to be with a guide that goes at your pace and filters the amount of detail and info, according to your interest. We are happy to say a stop at the Basilica is always an option for our Teotihuacan Tour. Happy onwards travels with your wonderful group of girlfriends! Best Laura

Thank you SO much for truly noticing the quality and tone that separates a novice tour from a professional one. As you can imagine, all the details - big and small - are very important to us too! For this very reason we only work with a very small team of trusted, outstanding guides. Ones we know will deliver a five-star experience from beginning to end. We are so appreciative of your comments, and to know that your experience at Teotihuacan was made exceptional by Javier. We hope to be of service again during your next visit. Best Laura

It was an absolute pleasure to facilitate a great day out at Teotihuacan for you both. The pyramids are such a special site to visit. It would be a shame if you didn't have a guide like Javier bring it alive! We know he will be happy to hear he did a great job :) We hope the pictures keep you smiling for a long time to come, and look forward to your return journey. Best, Laura
