The tour of the pyramid and the ruins was a great adventure. Our guide and driver, Fernando and Joel, were a great pair. Fernando's deep knowledge of the history of the pyramids and Mexico was very solid and Joel did an equally expressive job shuttling us to and fro. A great experience, I highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Mexico City

Our tour guide Marco is excellent. He is very animated and full of passion about his work. We learned so much history from his presentation during the trip. He is professional, funny and knowledgeable. We had a wonderful time.

Marcos and Juan were fabulous. Marcos was very knowledgeable and pointed out various historical areas and monuments along the way. Marcos spoke very good English and answered any questions we had. Strongly recommend
