Interesting tour . Our guide, Lino , was knowledgeable and very helpful in accessing the pyramid stairs. Communication, especially in the van and on our walk to and from the Pyramid was difficult to hear on a consistent basis. The lunch stop - which we opted out of- was interesting but too long. Overall the day was a good investment in time and cost. We would recommend this tour.

The trip out to visit the site was well worth it. Informative guide and Interesting ethnography if somewhat less than its spectacular relatives in Mexico City. Great lunch at el rancho after the tour

Our anthropologist guide, Alberto Aveleyra, provided an excellent tour to the site. He provided many facts and history about Canada de la Virgen pyramid site and also facts about San Miguel and the countryside on the trip to the Site. The tour was enjoyable and very worth our time and money. He not only has great knowledge but it is apparent that he really enjoys his work. I highly recommend this tour.
