What you’ll do

You’ll spend your day with one of our Mexico City hosts exploring one of the great mysteries of the ancient world - Teotihuacán

If, like us, you’re taking a few pronunciation run-ups, it is also known as the City of the Gods.

You’ll gain unique insights into this ancient Mesoamerican stronghold, which historians predict to have been built over 2000 years ago!

The largest city of its time, this ancient wonder predates both the Maya and the Aztecs - imagine that?

You’ll explore the complex network of temples and pyramids which were once at the heart of this vast city, channeling your inner Indiana Jones and hopefully not getting caught in any archaeological booby traps. We make no promises.

See the Pyramid of the Sun, the Pyramid of the Moon and stroll down the Avenue of the Dead, then round off your day with an authentic Mexican meal at a restaurant in a nearby cave - going back in time for real here, people.

Kidding! It’s an incredible spot, and we know you’ll just love it!

As first-timers to Mexico City with only a few short days to spend, we wanted to maximize our experience. Roberto and our driver, Alan, did exactly that. We expected the pyramids to be amazing (they were), what we didn't expect was the sheer size of the site, the murals. the tamales, the pork brain tacos, the pulque, AND (most importantly) the extensive knowledge of both Roberto and Alan. THANK YOU! We are sold on this guide/drive team and wouldn't hesitate to book other City Unscripted tours as a result.

Mexico City brought to life!

My husband and I had a very limited period of time to experience a taste of Mexico City. We were very lucky to have Roberto as our guide for half a day. His local, archaeological and historical knowledge of what is now one of our favourite cities in the world enhanced our visit. We couldn’t recommend him highly enough - his manner, sense of humour and knowledge of English were fantastic. We were also helped at very short notice to organise our tour by Bertie from City Unscripted - all in all a very professional outfit. Thank you Roberto and Co.

Great two days with Roberto in Mexico City

We had two great days with Roberto in Mexico City, first day focused on street food and food markets, second day on Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Very easy to communicate with and overall made our visit to CDMX hundred times more interesting than if we had tried to go at it alone.
