While in Mexico City we took two tours with Estacion Mexico. The free Mexico City Historical area walking tour and then the Teotihuacan tour.

The free walking tour in Mexico City was really amazing, our guide Javier was really great. He was super knowledgeable, speaks perfect English and was very proud and enthusiastic about his city and his country. He took us to the most interesting sites and gave us lots of tips for other places to visit, to eat and to drink. The fact that this tour is free is incredible! Obviously you can tip at the end which we did as it was more than worth it.

The following day we took the Teotihuacan tour for 600 pesos. We travelled there by public bus. There were some delays with the buses so it took a very long time to arrive, maybe there is a faster way and maybe less expensive way to visit Teotihuacan but after the free tour of Mexico City we didn't mind to pay for this one. Again Javier was super knowledgeable and enthusiastic and he really looks after everyone is his group.

I would highly recommend any tours from this company, especially the free ones to start with but guys please tip as it is worth it!

We did this tour with Aldo who was extremely knowledgeable and made the tour fun! We met at Palacio de Bellas Artes and were a cosmopolitan group from different countries, We took a public bus to the bus depot and another public bus to Teotihuacan from there. We spent around 3 hours at the historical site where Aldo explained everything about that place and patiently answered all our questions. On our way back, we took a bus until the first metro stop, and then took a metro back to Zocalo!

I would definitiely recommend this tour (more so because there is not a whole lot of history written over there)

Tour was great! Aldo, our guide was the best. One of our group members came straight from the airport with her luggage (I don't recommend this), but Aldo was super chill about it and even repeatedly offered to help her carry it throughout the tour. He told us a ton of great stories and history about the ruins. Overall, an awesome experience. I recommend also doing a tour of the historic downtown of the city, as some of the hx of the ruins makes more sense with this background.

Our tour guide was great; I think his name was Ulysses. He made the experience really fun.

My negative rating comes from the fact that the city bus used to transport us broke down on the way back. First we were stuck in the hot bus waiting for them to fix it till we all gave up and filed off. For close to two hours on the side of the road in the hot sun the bus driver kept telling us a bus was coming "soon" to get us. Finally a group of 6 of us got together and walked to a nearby restaurant. The restarant cook who could speak english hired two cabs for us at a cost of $120.00 US to drive us back the rest of the way to Mexico City.

Thank you very much for your comment, as you mentioned, it was a fact that comes out of our hands. We are very sorry for the situation, we understand the frustration that the group shared due to the fact that it affected the itinerary. We will work on solutions to avoid repeating it a second time,

You must book a tour with these guys! They offer the best introduction to Mexico City’s key areas with local knowledge about all aspects of the city – where to go, where to eat, what’s going on. Most on a tips only basis, but some with an upfront charge which does include public transport - a good way to get to know the system. We started with the tour of the Historic centre and did three more tours, we were so impressed. Javier led us on three tours - great guy, loves his city, enthusiastic and really approachable. Very reliable and easy to find at the designated meeting points. Lots of tips on places to go and things to do.

We did this experience a few days ago and have nothing but positive things to say about it!

First of all, this is great value for money at just $600MXN pp, cheaper than most of the tours that we could find. You don't need a private tour for this excursion and we had around 15-16 people which didn't feel too big at all. You get essentially a full day tour but because of the early start, the return to CDMX at 3pm means you can still do a couple of activities when you get back to the city. The use of public transport was easy and efficient with no issues whatsoever.

While we loved Teotihuacan and the beautiful Sun and Moon pyramids, our guide (Julio Cesar - like the emperor as he liked to remind us!) absolutely stole the show and made this tour an unforgettable experience. As a student of Mexican history, he is incredibly knowledgeable and gave us the historical and mythological context into this sacred site which made it such a better experience than just wandering around. He was personable and made sure each and every person on the tour enjoyed themselves and also helped one of the other tour members get her phone back from the bus!

Absolutely would recommend this tour for Teotihuacan - you won't regret it!

Thank you very much for your comment, the entire Estación México team works very hard daily to deliver a unique and unforgettable experience for all of you. Julio César is a boy who loves history and that reflects it in all the information he has about the site. Thank you for choosing Mexico Station to get to know Teotihuacan and we hope to see you very soon on another of our tours.

Incredible experience with Ulysses (Warryor) who took us through Mexico City to get to the bus station for Teotihuacan. We travelled like locals on the local bus and then the larger one - which we never would have been comfortable doing alone. It was a great way to see more of the city and to ask questions while viewing different neighborhoods. At the site Ulysses had a lot of information to share, all of which was highly digestible since he did such a good job with the story telling. He made sure we remembered and understood what he was saying since there was a lot of information and history there. He also took us to see one of the vendors that showed how people used to paint with things from nature. Overall very unique and great experience, highly recommend especially since the price is so great (especially with discount from taking the free walking tour with Estación). No vendors pushing you to buy things either which was nice.

What a great trip. I did not read in detail when we booked (did it on my phone from Ixtapa), so did not realize the public transit portion of the tour. That said, am thrilled that it went that way. On the bus, we had the opportunity to talk with normal locals who wanted to practice their English. It was so much fun.
Back to the day. We met Julius Cesar at the meeting point and unlike our experience the night before with the same tour company, he was easy to spot in his pink shirt and umbrella. We took a local bus to the bus terminal and then a public coach (no bathroom) to the pyramids. Much like other wonders, the Pyramids are incredibly breathtaking in person. Our guide Julius Cesar is a young man finishing his university studies in Mexican history and is working on his thesis. His knowledge of the history of mexico is awesome. If you are able, please climb the two pyramids. It is a little tiring (250+ big steps plus the higher altitude), but well worth the effort, I can assure you. Not everyone is up for the climb, and Julius Cesar stays with those who can't/won't go up and offers a half hour tour of the rest of the site. My girlfriend really appreciated his knowledge and attention. The bus ride back was even more interesting than the one to the pyramids, inasmuch as there were a lot more locals going to Mexico City at midday thane there were going out to the town near the pyramids in the morning.
All in all, it was a highlight of our trip. It does take up a little more than half a day, but well worth it. We had four plus days in Mexico City, so were still able to see tons of galleries, museums, churches and local attractions.
My last piece of advice is to wear lots of sunscreen and a big hat. IN the event you don't have one, there are tons of vendors at the site who will sell you a big hat (not sure if is technically a sombrero, but certainly a wide-brimmed one) for a whopping 30 pesos.

Aldo was our guide and he was great. Phenomenal introduction to public transportation. They will show you how to navigate across the city or get anywhere in the country using bus and metro. I would HIGHLY recommend taking this tour early in your stay in Mexico City, as it'll equip you with the tools and knowledge to see parts of the city you will never otherwise be able to experience. Aldo was a really amazing guide.

This was an awesome tour and the guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about what he was doing (he had a degree in anthropology). The tour starts at 7 am and picks up people from another location in the city. But overall everything went as scheduled and on time.

The tour does include the fees for entering the site. This is my first experience visiting ancient pyramids. This site is pre-Aztec and it is remarkable what the people who lived there achieved. There are actually 2 big pyramids. The first one (called the Sun Pyramid) does require quite the climb. Ran out of breath couple of times and had to stop. But the view from the top is just spectacular. The second pyramid (Moon) is not so tall and you are allowed to go only half way up.

I would have given this tour a 5 star but for the stop they made after the site visit. It was supposed to be for lunch but it also was a sales event trying to get the tourist to buy liquor and trinkets. I wish tour companies would stop doing this. Anyway, overall a good educational trip.

Hello, thank you very much for your comment but it is important to mention that in our tour we do not visit souvenir shops or restaurants. The route with Estación México includes the visit to the 3 main temples of Teotihuacan (1 more than the other companies). We believe there is confusion, but we appreciate the comment. Regards
