I chose this activity because it was one of the shorter activities that seemed to focus on the pyramids (or temples), and it turned out to be exactly that. After pick up at the hotel, we made a brief stop to the Plaza de las Tres Culturas and then directly to Teotihuacán. The guide, Eduardo, was very knowledgeable and charismatic. He made the transition seamlessly between English and Spanish for the entire day, which was very helpful. I would definitely recommend this tour. Helpful tip - the ticket options made it seem as though the lunch stop was optional so I did not purchase a ticket that included lunch. However, the bus made a lunch stop for everyone anyway (even if you did not have lunch included), and there we paid cash for the buffet. Just something to consider when purchasing the ticket.

It was a great tour with a nice tour guide who talked very well English! The only point that I need to add is that it should be good if there is already mentioned on the website that your tour can be combined with other tours. Now it took for me the whole day instead of 6 hours that I booked. For me it was not really a problem, but I can imagine that maybe other people had planned something else as well. Also something that is good to mention is from which hotels you can be picked up, my hotel is in Polanco, but was not included in the pick up. That is kind of sad if you expect to be picked up. For the rest I want to say it was a very great tour with a lot of information and time to see everything!
