We scheduled this tour and then I tested positive for covid. We let them know before pickup for the tour and they responded and said they would refund that day. They did not and have not responded to messages since. Very disappointing and unprofessional

Floating over the pyramids at Teotihuacan was a magical experience. The view from the hot air balloon was magnificent and the experience was surreal. My wife and I will never forget this.

I doubted because I didn’t get any organization instructions, but everything was very well organized and where they picked you up and will bring you back. The hot air balloon over Teotihuacan is such a magical experience to discover the historical places.

A Marvelous Experience but
RobertKenneth_S

The ballooning experience was fantastic! From take off to toast our captain was in total control and also sharing what we should expect! Our landing was smooth with bent knees! The Mexican breakfast in a lovely garden with live music and tequila shots was extremely enjoyable!! Our local guides Daniel and Suzanne were outstanding. We also enjoyed our tour of the arts and cultural center with Oscar. The tombs, the street of the dead, and our cave experience were outstanding! Our only disappointment was lack of timely communication about where pick up would be for travel out of the city. Viator totally abandoned any responsibility for communication. Our tour operator notified us by text less than 12 hours before pickup!! Did not answer any texts or attempts to place cell calls. At end of tour we were dropped in center of city NOT where pick ups occurred. Driver didn’t speak enough English to even tell us the name of the drop off center. The tour was worth every cent we paid. With improvements in pre tour communications and drivers’ communication skills on English speaking tours, this would more than meet any picky American’s expectations. Worst communication from Viator I have ever experienced. And we use them frequently in many countries!! I know Covid is the preferred excuse these days but please Viator pick it up!! Robert K Stuart
