This was our second tour with Journeys Beyond the Surface, this time to the Pyramids of Teotihuacan. It was very easy to set up the tour with Mojdeh and our guide Alvaro was very knowledgeable and picked out very interesting side trips along the way. We had a great time, once again.

Time to say thank you to Mojdeh and her guides for making our visit to Mexico City so worry free and interesting. Never having been to Mexico City my wife and i as seniors had concerns while planning a visit. Luckily I found Mojdeh and received her advice with endless email questions patiently answered. And for the actual visit Mojdeh... More

I'm grateful to former Tripadvisor reviewers for steering me to Journeys Beyond the Surface. I had one day in Mexico City on my own before joining a group, and I wanted to see different things. Mojdeh, who heads the company, was helpful and responsive via email to help me plan the day. My guide, Sergio, was well-informed and fun to... More

Thanks to Mojdeh at Jouneys Beyond the Surface, my wife and I spent 4 wonderful days exploring the history and culture around Mexico City. She prepared us with advice and information for us to plan our visit and then provided us with an excellent guide, Maria, for a full day walking tour of the Historic district. Maria was very pleasant... More

My husband and I spent four days in Mexico City recently and we decided to work with Journeys Beyond to provide a guide for two of them. Our guide was Sergio and he first gave us a full day tour of the central historical area of Mexico City. Sergio provided an excellent introduction to MC which made us more comfortable... More

We traveled to Mexico last July (yes I'm a little behind on posting this) to visit my husband's family. My parents came down a week after us and they had never been to Mexico before so we really wanted them to enjoy it. My husband's family lives about 4 hours from Mexico City so he wasn't for sure what all... More

We wanted to be sure we had a tour to the Teotihuacan Pyramids organized before we arrived in Mexico. As we wanted only to do the pyramids we decided on a private tour and researched the options through TripAdvisor. It is definitely pricey compared to other tours available but we appreciated the one-on-one service we received from Sergio who was... More

Thank you so much for your kind words, I am glad to know that you found the Teotihucan tour to be of high quality. Unfortunately we are not able to charge you less than a full day for a Teotihuacan tour, even if you only go to Teotihuacan. We were sorry that time did not allow you to take advantage... More
