TEOTIHUACAN 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 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 the Tour Coordinator, 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. 


THE PYRAMID OF THE SUN AWAITS YOU

The City of Teotihuacán was abandoned for unknown reasons around 700 A.D.  At that time there were a massive 14 square miles of development.

The Pyramid of the Sun is the largest structure within the ancient city, and is one of the largest, in general, in the Western Hemisphere.


The Pyramid of the Sun on the left. Ask your guide about its function & history.


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



Just an hour out of central Mexico City, are the incredible Mayan-slash-Mixtecan-slash Zapotec structures of the Pyramid of the Sun and The Pyramid of the Moon. These are situated within an amazing prehispanic 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.


The Pyramid of the Sun is just one of many structures along the 'Avenue of the Dead'.

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


Cesar was the perfect guide, giving us enough information without overwhelming us with details. My husband and I climbed the pyramids but my sister in law stayed below and somehow Cesar managed to keep an eye out for all three of us!


MEET YOUR TEOTIHUACAN PYRAMID GUIDES


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


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

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.


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 and clients pause for Mexican style hot chocolate.


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 many Harley Davidson motorbikes (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 Santiago for his winning combo of personality and knowledge. 

Santiago is our oldest and most experienced guide. Don't let his age fool you. He has the physical and mental stamina of the Energizer bunny. Not that he has anything to prove. If you want get take your time to get more in-depth into local history, or you are travelling with a family that takes things slowly, Santiago adjusts to you. Santiago loves meeting new people and he loves his city, so being a guide is the perfect job for him. It's just as well he discovered that so early on in life. We think it's kept him in great shape!


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

Santiago Jnr has over 25 years experience as a guide. He specializes in pre-hispanic and colonial history and is adored by our visitors who have toured with him.

Our guide, Santiago, was pleasant, friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable from start to finish. The day was tailored and adjusted to make sure we had a great time and were comfortable. By the end of the trip, we’d made a new friend. This is the best guided tour we have experienced.

Way beyond our expectations and would love to reconnect with Javier the next time we are in town. His knowledge has inspired to come back

​TEOTIHUACAN: WHY SEE IT WITH A PRIVATE GUIDE ​

We don't do robotic spiels or cookie cutter presentations. That would really take the joy out of such an amazing anthropological and archaeological site!

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


You had to travel halfway across the world to see the​ Pyramids, right?

Are you are sure you want to sabotage your experience ​with an X-factor guide and ​be subjected to their t​ell-it-50-times-a-week Teotihuacan story??


Yes, there are guides for hire spontaneously on site at Teotihuacan. But think about this. Once they have signed you up and given you their robot version of the Teotihuacan story, they KNOW you are going to disappear into the world and they will never see you again.  Their is zero accountability for the quality of their work or their professionalism. If you thought their guiding was terrible, what could you do? Nothing. You couldn't write a bad review...you'd have nowhere to post it. You couldn't complain to your hotel. it wasnt their fault.  And you most certainly wouldn't want to try hiring another one just in cas ehtye were any better! The fact is you would have wasted precious time, in a one-off moment in your life. in our heart of hearts, wee don't believe that that is a ​risk worth taking. And that is exactly why we have created an alternative for you. it's called giving a damn about what happens.


​With a private guide, who actually ​CARES about ​your experience, you can be enthralled, or geeky as you want.


You'll get real answers to your questions, and the experience will be a two-way dialogue.


​We believe a tour experience should be something​ you share. Not something you are subjected to!




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



Our private Pyramids tour is 100% for you. It is designed to meet your pace, mobility level, and your specific 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.  

As you will see from our countless Tripadvisor reviews, our professional guides help bring the site alive. They love their jobs, they remain fascinated in the subject, and keep up to date on current research. When you come on tour with us, we enjoy the experience WITH you. We don't do robotic spiels or cookie cutter presentations. That would really take the joy out of such an amazing site, and all its wonder.

​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!

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

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

Climbing is optional however. We follow your call.

Teotihuacan to Mexico private tour Guide driver review


Javier, our tour guide, was knowledgable and affable. But even more, he had clearly put thought and effort into timing our trip to make the best use of the short day. The Basilica de Guadalupe was a beautiful experience and the pyramids were awe inspiring.

​MEXICO ​PYRAMIDS - TOUR ITINERARY

During their tour program, all guests have the option of seeing the iconic Basilica  of the Virgen of Guadalupe and/or the historically charged zone call the Plaza of 3 Cultures.

  • 9am: Pick-up from your hotel  (wihtin central  city hotel belt) in luxury transport. An early start means you can beat the midday sun.
  • Your guide-driver checks in with you and asks if you'd like to include the Basilica of the Virgin of Guadalupe and/ or the Plaza of the 3 Cultures during your tour schedule as well. These are en route and can be accomodated.
  • Travel safely and smoothly to Teotihuacan. This is about a 1hour's drive. Your guide informs you of interesting urban, political and social features of Mexico City as you pass by
  • You will walk the Avenue of the Dead and see the Pyramids of the Sun and Moon. Climb the pyramids is optional. If you want to give up for the climb,  your guide will accompany you.
  • Your guide brings alive the history of the pre-hispanic cultures that travelled through and occupied the Teotihuacán Pyramids. You can also learn all about the current findings that scientists are still discovering in their research and excavation.
  • Pause whenever you want to - be it to rehydrate, rest, or try a mezcal at the tours end.
  • Ask Q's, be curious about anything, learn some expert history and culture in an easy-going, approachable way.
  • See the compelling the scaled model of the layout of the ancient city and the preserves painted jaguar mural at the small on-site museum.
    (The museum is shut on Mondays, but it is not a huge part of the itinerary, so a Monday trip is still worthwhile! Especially as almost all museums are shut in Mexico City on Mondays!)
  • 1:30pm: Optional: have snacks/coffee/tamales at a nearby garden setting restaurant before heading back to Mexico City. 
  • 3pm: Hotel drop-off in luxury transport.

Important points to note
We don't include food or drink in your tour price so you are not locked into anything prior.
Hotel pick-up & drop-off applies to all main hotel & bnbs in the central neighbourhoods of Roma, Juarez, Cuauhtémoc, Condesa, Polanco, and Centro. If you are outside of these areas, please advise

Add a little bit of Indiana Jones to your holiday!

Unlike group tours & package deals, the hour spent travelling from Mexico City out to the Pyramids is considered part of the tour.

The journey there & back offers us a great chance to chat about life in Mexican and what is happening i the here and NOW!

Our guide, Santiago Snr, spoke  fluent English, and gave us a lot of good information along the way. We had a driver as well, Juan, so Santiago could concentrate on us instead of driving.

MEXICO CITY WEATHER & WHAT TO WEAR AT TEOTIHUACAN

Mexico City Weather is variable. Because Teotihuacan is not far away, the weather likewise changes throughout the day. here's how to dress for a great day out!


The main thing to be aware of is the sun. Be it a hat, sun umbrella or sunblock, you'll want to be protected. Cloud formations move in and out a lot at the pyramids and the UNESCO site is very exposed. One minute it is overcast. The next you are in full sun. And frequently the UV INDEX is off the charts.

See our Mexico City Weather and Mexico City Altitude tips  for more info.

So what to wear??

1) Comfortable walking shoes or sneakers.
Beach thongs, sandals or jandals are NOT appropriate for climbing the pyramids because the steps are very skinny.

2) Layers.
 In general, you will find the weather changes quickly at the pyramids.. Rain clouds float in and out, so so do showers.  Usually there are no heave rainstorms un til the late afternoon. A light parka wrapped around your waist does the trick. And if the weather really turns bad, you are never that far from your private vehicle. Our driver always carry extra umbrellas for you  in the car.

3) Long sleeve shirts are a good way to avoid lathering on sunblock every hour.

Here is the Teotihuacan Pyramids hourly weather forecast for you in English

One last thing. The pyramids are obviously steep but the actual larger area is relatively flat. The only time you'll be climbing is if you choose to go up the pyramids (and this is entirely optional!) Apart from scaling the pyramids, you probably won't sweat much! This is  not a hard-core trekking activity.

    As we avoid larger tourist groups, we booked this private tour for our 5-member family, including 2 young adults and a teenager. Santiago our guide is very knowledeable in many of Mexican history and cultural topics, and kept us entertained and informed. He and our driver were very patient and good humoured, and we had a very pleasant trip, including the adventure of going up the pyramids! Great experience!!!

    Our tour guide Santiago from Stylewalk was fabulous. He was so knowledgeable and friendly. Most of all he was patient with our family that included 4 kids 8 and under.

    Todo muy bien con Santiago, muy interesante el tour y Santiago es muy amable y disponible. Me alegro que nos acompañe tmb a Teotihuacan.

    Thank you Matt for assisting me with booking three tours from Stylewalk. Communication with you was easy and you responded to all my questions and concerns. Thank you Santiago for being such a great guide. We appreciated your punctuality, your knowledge and especially your patience when answering my kids gazillion questions! To all: My kids are 10 and 12 and loved the tour. I recommend Stylewalk.

    Javier gave us an excellent tour of the pyramids. He was very professional, knowledgable, and engaging. Highly recommend!

    Very fortunate to have found Stylewalk MX through Trip Advisor. They had nothing but positive reviews, and now I see why. Javier, our tour guide, was knowledgable and affable. But even more, he had clearly put thought and effort into timing our trip to make the best use of the short day. The Basilica de Guadelupe was a beautiful experience and the pyramids were awe inspiring. Highly recommend this company and our guide, Javier.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our private tour to Teotihuacan and the Basílica de Guadalupe. Our guide, Javier, was knowledgeable and friendly, and our visits to both sites were very much enhanced by the information he provided us. We had time to explore some of Teotihuacan on our own -- to try climbing the Pyramid of the Sun if we dared -- and on the way back, we stopped at a restaurant and enjoyed a Mezcal tasting and some shopping. Highly recommend!

    Javier was a great guide taking us to the Basilica de Guadelupe and on to the pyramids at Teotihuaca. He was very knowledgeable. the whole day ran very smoothly, My son and I loved climbing the Pyramid of the Sun.We then stopped for some Mezcal tasting and lunch and craft shopping. Everyone we met was so welcoming and friendly. A lovely day.
