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. 

 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....

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 TEOTIHUACÁN PYRAMID GUIDES

Our pyramid 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.

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 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 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.

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

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.

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.

TEOTIHUACÁN PYRAMIDS TOUR ITINERARY 

All guests have the option of seeing the Basilica of the 'Virgin of Guadalupe' and /or the politically and pre-hispanicaly significant site, the Three Cultures Plaza, during their tour schedule.

  • 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

  • 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!)

  • 3pm: Hotel drop-off in luxury transport.

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.

    Our family of four had an amazing experience on our day trip to Teotihuacan! First, when we were considering booking, Laura answered our questions about the tour quickly and thoroughly, making our decision easy. Javier was our guide. He picked us up on time and drove us to Teotihuacan, explaining many of the sights we saw along the way and always keeping the conversation entertaining. Once we got to Teotihuacan, we explored the grounds for several hours, climbing both the sun and mood pyramids. All I can say is "Wow!". After Teotihuacan, we had lunch at a local restaurant and stopped for mezcal / pulque tasting and some quick shopping. We then headed home, with more interesting stories from Javier until we were dropped off. Thanks Javier for a great day! It was the favorite part of our wonderful trip to Mexico City.

    My husband and I were traveling to CDMX with our 4-year-old. We looked over Stylewalk website and weren’t sure if the tour would work for our family with a small child. I sent inquiry and promptly received a very helpful reply with great suggestions for tour options that would work for small children. We chose the Teotihuacan pyramids and were not disappointed. 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. We will definitely travel with Stylewalk again when we return to CDMX.

    Great tour! It was a pleasure listen to the historical/cultural information while taking in the breathtaking scenery. Our guide Javier was excellent. He was very pleasant, funny, and extremely knowledgeable. All in all a great day!

    This was a great day trip. My wife and I decided to take this tour of the Teotihuacan Pyramids a week before our trip and had no issues booking it online with Viator. Being a private tour was a great bonus and our tour guide Javier was highly knowledgeable and very informative, I would highly recommend requesting this tour, if you plan to take this day trip.

    Obviously, Teotihuacan is great a must see. No question about that. Comparing this tours - there are cheaper options for a 3 people to join a larger group. But the private tour made the whole day SMOOTH and at OUR PACE. The Zona Rosa was shutdown which complicated our pickup, but Javier handled it well. A great day and worth the premium for setting our own pace with a very comfortable ride.Read more about Teotihuacán Pyramids Tour 2018 - Mexico City at: https://www.viator.com/tours/Mexico-City/Teotihuacan-Pyramids-Tour-Your-Own-Driver-Guide-and-Luxury-Transport/d628-37320P9?pub=vcps

    We had an excellent, hassle-free trip to Teotihuacan. Our guide Javier picked us punctually at 9 am from our hotel. The car was clean and comfortable.Javier was a superb guide and a virtual encyclopedia of information about the history of mesoAmerica and nicely explained the Pre Maya,the Maya and the Aztec civilizations in the proper time frames.We also learnt a lot about modern Mexico from him.We had a delicious lunch on our way back.We did not feel rushed at all. Highly recommended!Read more about Teotihuacán Pyramids Tour 2018 - Mexico City at: https://www.viator.com/tours/Mexico-City/Teotihuacan-Pyramids-Tour-Your-Own-Driver-Guide-and-Luxury-Transport/d628-37320P9?pub=vcps

    I contacted Stylewalk because the only day I was going to be able to see Teotihuacan was on my last day in Mexico City. I needed to be picked up from my hotel, drive out to the pyramids ( and NOT just take photos and go, I really want to know its history and what the different pyrmids meant), get back to the city to collect my luggage and head straight to the airport to check in and fly out!  This meant my guide-drive really had to take my itinerary seriously and I am happy to say this was a perfect day because Javier did just that. Everything synced perfectly, I learnt so much and everything was paced and calm.  Frankly I am so glad I DIDN'T put the pyramids -airport drop off on my 'too hard' list. Thanks Stylewalk for making my last day an incredible one!

    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. We also stopped at the Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadeloupe on the way back which was very worthwhile. We will most certainly try one of the other Stylewalk MX tours on our next visit.

    We are two sets of couples who travel regularly together so taking a private tour was a very economic way for us to have a more luxury experience without breaking the budget. Actually thats why we prefer to travel like that. You get more bang for your buck.  Our guide Javier picked us up on-time, was friendly, knowledgeable and he had a really likeable, easygoing-sort of personality, which was a relief for us because we were worried about being with a walking encyclopedia.  All in all just an awesome day out. Even got to try some mezcal afterwards and eat a quesadilla (or three!), and did learn a lot about the pre-hispanics, without feeling overloaded.
