I was collected from my hotel earlier than advertised (6am). It was a nice small group of just 4 people. Ines was our guide and Francisco our driver. The drive there was comfortable. The tour itself was informative and enjoyable. There is about 5km of walking involved and it gets hot, so bring plenty of water and a hat! After the pyramids, I really liked seeing the craft shop and how they use the cactus plant. I liked the flexibility to choose as a group whether we wanted to stay for lunch or not. All in all it was a tour well worth doing! I learned far more than I would have if I’d gone alone.

The balloon trip was great and thank is why we did this the view up from the air over the pyramids and surroundings was mesmerising . The only thing I would have done differently is just to book the ballon trip. The visit to the pyramids and the artisans village was not worth it. The service and the team where great

The trip was amazing from start to finishing! Both our guided Laetitia and Alexa were very knowledgeable, they had an answer for every question, and on top of that they were very friendly! This tour really is a list if you’re visiting Mexico City!

It was a very good experience for us. Our tour guides, Karla and Liliana from Amigo tours, were very knowledgeable and very helpful. They really enjoyed being there with us which makes it even better.

Amazing team, super great experience and incredibly informative
