We booked three full touring days with Tekpan Tours, covering most of the highlights of Mexico City. I would recommend contacting them directly if you’d like a bespoke programme put together.

Pepe, our guide, was very friendly, always on time and informative. Mariana was also very helpful in organising everything.

Would definitely consider them again in the future as the prices were competitive.

Pepe was a great guide. We got the private car and tour. We are older so we asked in advance to have a shorter tour that started at 9:00 am. It's the same price and totally worth it as you get to see the same Teotihuacan without waiting around or down time. We went April 2022 and the museum next to the step pyramids is open again. Pepe well explained its contents in perfect English.

We had a SPECTACULAR tour of Teotihucan with Mario Romero through Tekpan Tours! My fiancee and I booked a private tour for just the two of us, and we had a stellar experience with Mario taking care of all the details, from pickup/dropoff, admission, lunch, snacks, and water, he came prepared to make the most of our day together!

Mario was extremely informative, not just on the history of this archaeological site, but also gave us valuable context about the history of Mexico City in general. He was incredibly helpful through the process, having arrived early to pick us up before rush hour traffic and knowing all the lesser known hacks that helped make sure our tour was without stress or worry.

On top of all his knowledge, Mario is infinitely personable, funny, warm, and inviting. He took strides to ensure we would have the best possible experience, and we did! Even though Teotihucan has various closures right now due to COVID (the museums, for instance), Mario maximized our time and made sure we covered every interesting nook and cranny of the site. I highly recommend him, and we hope he can guide us on future tours as well.

Our family did an early morning private tour of Teotihuacan with our guide, Fermin. This was one of the archaeological site that I have been wanting to visit ever since I first heard of Teotihuacan as a teenager. It helps too that Fermin is pursuing his PHD in Archaeology. His knowledge of this place is very comprehensive and insightful. We really appreciate his service on this day. The tequila and pulque tasting was an added bonus. To top the day off, we stopped at a wonderful little restaurant around the area serving delicious barbacoa and grilled rabbit. I highly recommend the privately tailored tours of Tekpan Tours. They are more expensive than group tours but the experiences you gained are priceless. We hope to come back soon. Hasta luego!

The timing of this tour is great - leave early and avoid the traffic, heat, and crowds.

Fermin was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable about Mexican archeology and happy to stop and answer our questions. He showed us murals and details that most people skip when zooming straight to the Pyramids of the Sun and Moon. We understand more about the Teotihuacan culture as well as well as the Aztec.

We had an amazing tour with Mariana. She was super friendly and incredibly knowledgeable. She picked us up promptly at our hotel and made a stop to allow us to pick up a quick breakfast snack. Once at Teotihuacan she took her time to explain the complex history in a way that was interesting and easy to understand. After the pyramids we stopped at a local artisan shop full of beautiful items to buy and that included some tequila and mezcal tasting. Originally we wanted to eat at a popular nearby restaurant but she recommended we return to Mexico City and try out a place called Cochinita Tavo that had cochinita pibil. Wow, the meal was absolutely delicious!! So glad we decided to go with her recommendation.
Hands down we would definitely go with Tekpan Tours again! Thank you Mariana for the fantastic tour and experience!! You were absolutely awesome :)

We traveled from the W Ciudad De Mexico to Teotihuacan. We enjoyed both our tour guide and our driver who were both accommodating , personable, friendly and exceedingly professional. We enjoyed our fist visit to Mexico City and they were able to answer questions about life in the city and its history in addition to the archaeological site and its historical implications.

We had an outstanding tour with Fermin. Such a great personalized tour. He picked us up from our hotel on time, then walked us through the entire grounds of Teotihuacan. As a graduate student in Archeology, he was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the site. He answered all of our questions and was very informative. The lunch and tequila tasting were also very enjoyable experiences. Would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking to get a personalized experience with a knowledgeable tour guide

I hate to leave a poor review, but in this case, I have to. Our guide was very sweet, but her English was poor and several people in our group of eight, could not understand her. There was no microphone or apparatus for amplifying the sound volume on the bus and those of us in the back had difficulty hearing her at all. In addition, she was not able to engage her audience and therefore came across as boring.
We specifically chose this tour in order not to spend time at tourist gift shops or any locations other than the pyramids and the museum. The tour description stated that it was for the pyramids only, but we also stopped at a convenience store, and a gift shop. Although we were all exhausted (it had been 8+ hours since pickup already), we stopped at a tourist trap at which there was a presentation by staff at the gift shop which involved a lot of standing and explanations of crafting which and none of us could understand. The pyramids are totally awesome, but I suggest finding a different tour company.

Thanks for taking the time to provide us with feedback. We are constantly seeking to improve the quality of our tours. We are very sorry the tour was not as expected but we believe that there was also lack of your communication from your side. Related to our tour not having microphone, we believe there is no need for that as we work with smalls groups and we star early to beat the crowds so everyone have a great experience. To be honest this is the first time any of our customer complains about it and we are surprised about it. Requesting feedback to your guide, she said no comments during the tour about her voice tone being adequate were made at all. We apologize about the stop in the workshop and gift shop, we included as indicated in the itinerary description. Customers, sometimes, ask to skip them and we do so as this is a private tour and we are more than happy to accommodate any customer's requirements but in this case, no communication about this was received to either at the moment of booking or directly to your guide. Also, as per your guide's feedback, the group seem to enjoy the presentation about natural pigments and craft liquors. We have passed all these feedback to your guide and she is sorry that her tour did not fulfilled your expectations but she will take this into account to help her improve as a guide. Regards,

Fermin was our guide and Gabriel was our driver. They picked us up at our Air Bnb on time and they were very friendly and knowledgeable about everything about Mexico (from the Pyramids to other attractions throughout the city). They were very flexible with us and what we wanted to see and learn about during our tour. I would highly recommend doing a tour with them, you will get to see and learn a lot!!
