TEOTIHUACÁN PYRAMIDS PRIVATE TOUR- 6 HOUR ROUND TRIP

With a private guide & driver, you will experience the true wonder of the Teotihuacan Pyramids. Your tour time is yours - there is no 'holding up' the  group!

This is a succinct SIX hour round trip to see the breathtaking UNESCO Teotihuacán Pyramids.

Don't be dragged around in a group by a robotic guide, who says the same thing to everyone!!
Our guides  are up-to-date on all the latest findings, they adjust the pace to you & are a joy to spend a day with.

With luxury door-to-door transport & an informed, articulate expert at your side, this tour is also known as Teotihuacán-the-easy-way !!


 TEOTIHUACÁN TOURS

Teotihuacán has the honour of being one of the most visited archeological sites in the whole of México. 

And with good reason!
It is breathtaking in scope and vision, and easily accessible no matter your level of mobility.

This tour operates 7 days a week (including the days when the city museums and galleries are closed.)


Teotihuacan Tourists happy private tour no group!

My husband, adult son and I took the 6 hour tour to Teotihuacan with Javier as our guide. The entire experience, from my initial email conversations with Megan, to pick up and drop off at our hotel, was easy and professional. Javier was an excellent guide, providing information about Mexico City on the drive to the temples as well as giving us great insight into the massive archaeological sight itself. 

 WELCOME TO MEXICO'S MOST FAMOUS PYRAMIDS!

The city was abandoned for unknown reasons around 700 A.D. At that time there were approx. 14 square miles of development.

An visual overview of the Avenue of the Dead. Ask your guide about its function & history.

The incredible urban layout of Teotihuacan reveals
a  sophisticated pre-Hispanic city of vast dimensions.


Just an hour out of central Mexico City, are the incredible Mayan-slash-Mixtecan Pyramids of the Sun and the Moon, situated within an amazing urban layout called the Avenue of the Dead.
Teotihuacan means 'The City of the Gods' in indigenous Nahuatl, which gives a strong hint about its importance and significance. 
Abandoned in the 8th century, these beautifully preserved archaeological sites are still being excavated, and new discoveries being made about the compelling and sophisticated architecture, function, and urban design of this pre-Hispanic city and its sacred & religious ceremonial grounds.
The site became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1987.

Climbing one, or both, of the pyramid usually brings a smile!

We believe the Teotihuacán Pyramids are a truly incredible pre-Aztec site that should be enjoyed, contemplated, and be given the time and space to evoke inspiration. Having a private guide is absolutely key to understanding the archeological, architectural, and anthropological significance of what you are seeing.

Traversing the length of the Avenue of the Dead,  we sense how truly vast this ancient city was.

Hundreds of metallic spheres were recently discovered in three hidden burial chambers of The Temple of the Feathered Serpent. 
The history keeps unfolding....

Javier was most knowledgeable and provided us with the history of the areas we visited as well as introducing us to sights, sounds and tastes of modern life in Mexico City. The tour was a delightful introduction to Mexico City by someone who clearly knows and loves the city.

MEET YOUR TEOTIHUACÁN GUIDES

Our guides are licensed and extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of Aztec and pre-Aztec history.
 Visiting Teotihuacán is not a sushi train run for them. They are as excited as you to be there and to share their knowledge with you.

Our Javier, Cesar and Gabriel each have over 20 years experience guiding in Mexico City. They have personality. They are NOT cardboard cut-out guides delivering robot speeches. They know their job is to give you solid information on anything and everything that interests you, be it a random question about why there are so many organ grinders in Centro Histórico, or whether the Aztecs ever met the Mayans, BUT they also know that people don't want to be talked at all day long!  That is to say, the overall flow and feeling of the tour is as important as the number of facts you acquire.

Javier and clients pause for Mexican style hot chocolate.

Our guides understand that giving you the chance to pause, and observe, and absorb are important too. That's why they are on the Stylewalk MX team.
Anyone can churn out facts, but these guys are cool. They are real people, with real lives. They love their city, but they are not in love with the sound of their own voices! They are flexible to YOUR needs. The focus is YOU and YOUR experience. We call it being professional. You would call it relaxing, informative, and fun.

Javier has over twenty years experience as a professional cultural & historic guide. He is up-to-date on new research & discoveries.

Javier Tapia is  our Head of Transport and Cultural Tours. Javier is a professional licensed guide (officially authorised by the Mexican Government) and has been working as a tour guide in his hometown of Mexico City for over 20 years. He has a really great attitude, his tours always have great flow and he is highly respected in the tour community as the Treasurer of the Tourist Guides Union.

When Javier is not on tour, he is found out walking his SIX (!) dogs, or going for a country cruise on one of his luxury Harley Davidsons (yes, like all fanatics,  he collects  them!)>

Cesar has been working as a licensed guide since 2002. He is the master of making any tour flow smoothly.

César Tapia is Javier Tapia's younger brother.  César has been working as a professional licensed guide (officially authorised by the Mexican Government) alongside Javier since 2002.

César is best known for his great sense of humour, his readiness to adapt to any situation, and his deep passion for Mexican history.  When he is not on the job, he loves to take his dog for a walk and, like Javier, he has a definite soft spot for taking his cruiser style motorbikes out for a spin in the country.

Our visitors love Gabriel (centre) for his winning combo of personality and knowledge.

Gabriel is regularly asked to take groups on national tours. He is a genuine expert on Mexico itself. When we can get hold of him, we grab the opportunity because Gabriel has incredible charm, he really knows how to relate to different groups of people and his style of sharing history and cultural info is very agreeable.

You can ask as many questions as you like because we DON'T DO canned speeches or canned answers.

WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR PRIVATE PYRAMIDS TOUR

Our guides have a wealth of knowledge about the pre-hispanic occupants of Teotihuacán. They also know how to balance talking with listening & walking, and will follow your pace.

Understanding what each area was used for is key to feeling meta-level inspired at the pyramids.

Be enthralled, be geeky, be curious about the anthropological & archeological wonders of a society that mysteriously disappeared in 700 A.D.

This tour is 100% for you. It is designed to meet your pace, mobility level, and your interests. 

We believe the Teotihuacán Pyramids are a truly incredible pre-Aztec site that should be enjoyed, contemplated, and be given the time and space to evoke inspiration. Having a private guide is absolutely key to understanding the archeological, architectural, and anthropological significance of what you are seeing.

With a private tour, you won't be made to rush, or be told you are 'slowing down the group' because there is NO group.

The Pyramid of the Moon and the Pyramid of the Sun afford  panoramic views from their summit.

Climbing the pyramids is completely optional. If you'd like to give a try, your guide will accompany you all the way!

Not feeling up to the climb?
Not a problem. We adjust to you. We have no marathon agendas.
We believe the key is to enjoy yourselves & to be inspired by these unique surroundings.
