Great tour. Pablo (or Paul McCartney to his fans) was a great guide and had very interesting facts during the tour. He was also very accommodating to us because we were not the best Spanish speakers (his English was excellent). I would recommend this trip.

Reviewed by Bob from Alabama This was an interesting, well-organized tour. The guide (whose name escapes my memory) was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Though I was the only English-speaking person in the van, he accommodated me wonderfully with excellent English. Though I am not Catholic, I did appreciate the Our Lady of Guadalupe Shrine, the most visited Catholic shrine in the world (as I understand it). It is quite a structure. The Teotihaucan Pyramids are interesting to tour. The steps of some structures are steep, making footing difficult for those who have difficulty walking or having decent balance. The main pyramid was far to high for me to care to climb, though I saw people doing so. Visitors will have to tolerate the great number of vendors walking up to them with their wares to sell. It is a fairly consistent procession of these men. I took it in stride because they are there to make a living, their articles for sale are interesting, and their behavior is very acceptable. Lunch was delightful. We had an authentic Mexican buffet in a nice restaurant that had entertainment (native dancers). The food was plentiful, decently priced, tasty, and with nice variety. Lunch was also another very pleasant way for fellow travelers to get to know each other. The pyramids are about 50 minutes outside Mexico City, and the shrine is even closer. It is an opportunity for tourists to see some of the countryside of the greater outer suburbs of Mexico City. The tour lasted some 8-plus hours, getting us back to our hotel sometime around 6:30 p.m. All in all, it was a pleasant day and certainly worth the money.
