“Easy way to do the W trek as everything is organised for you.

If doing camping, sleeping bags and matts are provided though this isn't communicated anywhere.
The trek itself is amazing. Hiking Poles are recommended
Views are incredible and worth the hard work.”

“The trip is well organized. Transportation is good and clean, driver friendly and good experienced. Although I thought we would go first to Bonampak as described, we went first to Yaxchilan. We stopped on the way to have local breakfast. Clean place, clean toilets. Arriving at the river we took the boat to the site, possibility to get an experienced guide which I would recommend. After that we went for lunch which was ready for us. No waiting as we ordered what we want before leaving to Yaxchilan. (very efficient)
Continued to Bonampak, where we arrived at 4.00 pm. The murals closes at 4.30 pm and the site at 5.00 pm. So not so much time to visit. The guide was in a rush everything had to be quick and the rooms where the murals are, the guard pointed every time at his watch that we needed to look quick. No time to get in a second time or take more time to have a good look at the murals. That was a bit disappointing of the last part of this tour. I would have liked tot stay a bit longer in Bonampak.”

ITINERARY

Ancient pyramids, town, local businesses, and a welcoming dinner…sounds like a recipe for an amazing day outside Mexico City!
Head out of Mexico City by public transit (depending on the size of the group), experiencing how locals move about this crowded city. Hop off at the archaeological area of the Teotihuacan pyramids, where you’ll learn about the people who once lived here and all the mysteries that still surround this site. As you tour the grounds, you’ll see the Moon Pyramid, the Calzada de los Muertos (Dead Pass), and the Sun Pyramid, which is the tallest and most spectacular in the area, it’s 63 metres to the top! (and yes, we’re going up).
After exploring the pyramids, we’ll continue the afternoon walking through the streets of a nearby town. Our first stop will take us into a family-run business where you will learn about ‘obsidian’, the material that the Teotihuacan people use as the main element to make their tools, idols, and decorations. As well, you’ll get to sip an ancient sacred drink called ‘pulque,’ which is extracted from the heart of the maguey (another kind of cactus) considered by some to be the great-grandfather of tequila.
Next up on this Mexico tour, pay a visit to the cactus product factory, where you’ll find jams, candies, spicy lollies, alcoholic creams, and more products made by the local people from the endemic vegetation such as nopal, xoconostle, and a cactus fruit called tuna. Not only will you be able to see all the cactus varieties at this family-run factory, but you’ll also get to try some samples and, if you like them, you can pick up some of these exotic products as a souvenir.
To finish our journey, we’ll visit a local family for dinner. Their business is catering, so you’ll be in good hands to try some traditional dishes. Their menu is always changing based on whatever they’ve cooked for the day, but there’s always delicious options for every palate. You’ll be welcomed into their home and experience traditional dinner customs. Plus, you’ll be able to practise all those Spanish words you’ve learned along your trip as you enjoy some real local flavours of typical Mexican kitchens. Delicious! After dinner, we’ll head back to Mexico City, happy, full, and relaxed.
