Welcome to Mexico at the times before Mexico. Come at dawn and discover what was the largest city in the Americas before, during and after the times of Christ. Teotihuacan is just one hour away from Mexico City, once there, a full six hour visit is needed due to its sheer 650 acre extension and the large number and size of its landmarks. It is almost impossible to visit each and everyone of its outstanding constructions in one visit, so we maximize the tour with our pre-designed, special route.

Let us show you its hidden treasures, like the mural paintings of the gigantic metropolis, while you enjoy your exclusive visit with a better understanding and appreciation of the complex archaeological site. Amaze yourselves with one of the best examples of sculpture and paint from this ancient civilization at the basement of the feathered serpent and of the heavenly waters deities' temple. Climb the pyramids, explore palaces and abandoned structures, feel immersed in ancient times.

During the morning there will be appropiate stops for rest, water, photo-ops and restrooms. We will make sure that the memories of Teotihuacan, never leave you. This tour takes place rain or shine.
