This was one of our favorite place to visit. The pyramids was so amazing, we actually went to the top of the pyramid and the view was amazing. It was so nice to experience it with my whole family, we enjoyed it very much.

Climbing the Pyramid of the Sun is a challenging physical feat yet everyone - no matter what their age- wants to do it. Handrails are provided but the steps are very steep -deliberately so to dismember corpses thrown off the top once the sacrifice is completed. So many people on the monument it is hard to remember this was a... More

I had the good fortune of visiting the Unesco heritage site of Teotihuacan last October. The weather was perfect..warm in the sun and chilly at night. This pyramid is huge, ancient and powerful in its impact on climbers. Reaching the top (look it up on google for specifics of height and other dimensions) provided a stunning view of miles and...

Amazing views from the top of the mountains and other temples. One of the best days I've spent on holiday in nsnyba long year. The admission ticket is so cheap and the trip from. Mexico... More

Ancient pyramid as big as this is something not everyday is seen. If you travel near Mexico City try to rent a tour to go there, in Viator are some good ones, is definitely worth it.

One of the reasons why I traveled to Mexico City was because I wanted to see the Teotihuacan Pyramids. I went to the pyramids on a Monday and the site wasn't crowded. I was in awe the moment I saw the Pyramid of the Sun. It was purely stunning! It was magnificent! Visitors get the chance to climb up the... More

Under-rated attraction that all history buffs and travelers should visit at least once in their life. It's a majestic experience to walk to the top of the pyramid and see the other pyramid in the distance. Definitely a must.

We really found this an interesting visit and place to see. We took a private bus tour out to the pyramids and had a little over an hour to walk around the area. We climbed the smaller Temple of the Moon and looked around and read the info. posted along the way. We could've easily had another 40 mins. to... More
