Experience Mexico City: Teotihuacan Day-Trip & Dinner with the Locals

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Leave Mexico City behind on a small-group tour to the ancient Teotihuacan Pyramids. Meet the locals in the typical Mexican town of San Martin de las Piramides, visit the ancient monuments, climb the Pyramid of the Sun at sunset and join a family for dinner in their home. Travel like a local by public transportation with the assistance of your professional guide on this interactive experience that familiarizes you with everyday life in Mexico.
  • Go with a guide: Avoid the stress of navigating on your own
  • Panoramic views of the highlands from the top of the Sun Pyramid
  • Eat with a local family—an experience rarely available to tourists
  • Small group of 12 or fewer ensures an intimate, personal experience
What to Expect
Avoid the stress of navigating public transit on your own by meeting your guide at a centrally located metro station in Mexico City.
On arrival at Teotihuacan, begin your walk through the ancient “City of the Gods.” On this small-group tour capped at 12 people, you’ll avoid the large crowds that gather for museum-run tours. Listen to speculation on the mystery of who could have built the massive structures and then climb the Sun Pyramid for panoramic views of the Mexican Highlands.
After the tour, follow your guide to a neighboring town for a taste of pulque, an alcoholic beverage sacred to the Aztecs. From there, experience a side of Mexico rarely available to tourists at the home of a local family, where you sit down for a homemade meal in good company.
After dinner, join the guide on public transit for an easy trip back to Mexico City.

Sorry. We had a Taquito's and Lentil soup. The meal is whatever they happen to be cooking that day. There are no options.
