My boyfriend and I booked the Teotihuacan tour and were thrilled with the experience. Mario & Cesar were our guides and both were so friendly, funny, and intelligent. We took public transportation the whole way (subway, bus, taxi) which was fun and an interesting way to travel to the pyramids. Mario was very accommodating, teaching us all about the history of Teotihuacan and allowing us to explore on our own as well.
We visited a local obsidian workshop and souvenir shop with Phillip, who had us laughing quite a bit. We learned about the many uses of the maguey plant and had a "happy hour" where we tasted pulque, tequila and mexcal. Next we saw all the beautiful obsidian sculptures. Mario made it clear that we were not obligated to buy anything but we bought a few small things because they were so beautiful and clearly handmade.
Next stop was a family factory that produces liquors, jams, and salsa's. We got to sample everything, very delicious! On our way to the factory we walked through the Teotihuacan town, which is beautiful.
Last stop was the family dinner. The food was incredible and everyone was so nice. Mario and Cesar are so easy to talk to. I honestly felt like we spent the day with a couple of friends, exploring the pyramids and town and meeting new people.
I highly recommend this tour to anyone. Thank you, Mario & Cesar!!!
