We did a day trip from Mexico city with Toritour. It was a great visit, the climb is very steep and could be hard coming down. It is worth the climb, beautiful views. If it is hot bring a hat and sun screen as you...More

Interesting monument in the middle of an ancient sacred site with very clear remnants intact. It’s a little scary to climb down the back side of the pyramid facade on very narrow steps, where there is a second, older pyramid with heads of the feathered...More

This place is great. The Aztecs did not know who built it when they first arrived on the scene. How many attractions have zero reviews with scores below average? This is the first I recall seeing.

There is no part of this ancient city that one will not enjoy, only if wearing protection from the Sun. So, after an overview, Sun and Moon pyramids, we visited the museum and this pyramid and it is amasing how much it is preserved from...More

The pyramids just outside Mexico City are a must see. They were built by a culture that preceded the Mexica's (Aztecs) by many centuries, but used by them to consolidate their power. But also travel to other parts of Mexico to see the Mayan cities.

Yes there are 4 gates to which you can enter. Tickets are fairly inexpensive, the site is quite large so even with the bus crowds it's not that bad. We went around noon and it wasn't that bad.
