This was an awesome tour...
, Sep 2021
This was an awesome tour package and the perfect way to see the Teotihuacan pyramids and the surrounding town. The hot air balloon ride was such a special experience. After the ride, we were taken on a walking tour of the pyramids, then a bike tour of the surrounding area. Our guide, Zacil, was so knowledgable and fun to talk to! Throughout the day, we also stopped at local shops and tasted different liquors. The breakfast and lunch included in the tour were also delicious!
Great experience!! Highly recommend.

Don't miss this! The view of the pyramids against a skyline full of balloons was amazing. The pilot was friendly and knowledgeable. We did the bike tour, which was a great way to see the town.
The trip was amazing from the pickup, food, balloon ride with Cap Carlos to the walking tour with our guide Miguel.
, Jun 2021
Cap Carlos is an amazingly skilled pilot. I say this as a pilot myself. Our guide, Miguel, was wonderfully kind and knowledgeable. Having the transportation pick us up at our lodging was a nice surprise and the trip was comfortable. My wife’s word for the experience is “amazing”. I’d have to agree.
Absolutely necessary for any trip to Mexico City
, May 2021
Just incredible; this tour didn't miss a single thing. Among the highlights: * Pickup from hotel in Mexico City was extremely convenient * Hot air balloon ride was spectacular (first-time ballooner here) * Not only did we see the pyramids, but we also went to Villa Tlaloc and other places for chocolate, drinks, murals, etc. even a nearby cave -- it's a fantastic way to spend the day * Our tour guide, Eloy, was extremely knowledgeable and added wonderful context to everything we were seeing -- I went to the National Museum of Anthropology the following week and it was so much better visiting the Teotihuacan sala having seen the pyramids and learned about them from the tour! Absolute highlight of my CDMX trip.
The best of the best!
, Apr 2021
The best tour agency I experienced in my long years of traveling, started with the day before where they sent me all the information about the pickup and the planned day. Our ballon tour was perfect, and after breakfast there was Angeles waiting for me to star out tour inside the park with Miguel (amazing knowledge of the park) and went to the bike tour and it was just bike a good mountain bike with Jorge as a guide, we had a blast!!! Finally lunch was good , and the transfer back to the city was flawless! I highly recommend this agency, professional, friendly, caring and knowledgeable! Don't think twice, book with them!!!
Excellent trip with a few bumps
, Dec 2019
The balloon trip was amazing, and we were immediately comfortable when we saw the new equipment and excellent pilot. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The breakfast after the ride was homemade and tasty. Our driver from Mexico City was a disaster - arrived late and didnot know how to get there, but Angela from Viator stepped in and saved the day, making sure we were well taken care of and arranged for a new driver to get us back to Mexico City. The restaurant for lunch should be reconsidered - the food was mediocre at best.
Very good

, Jan 2018
This was such a great day! We had the transport pick us up at a hotel down the street from our AirBnB at a very early 5:30 am. Definitely use the transport because we heard from other people that it was really hard to find the hot air balloon place in an Uber. The hot air balloon part was awesome! We went above the clouds and it was surreal. Then went to get breakfast at a nearby restaurant where there was a yummy buffet. That was where Miguel picked us up and took us to the pyramids. We got a great long tour of the pyramids and the surrounding ruins. Had a quick snack outside the pyramids. Then we got to see Miguel's home where he has an obsidian workshop and did agave and tequila tastings. Overall a pretty long day but really really fun. Got back around 4 pm or something like that. Definitely recommend! Miguel was awesome.

This is a bucket list trip. I've never been in a hot air balloon before and the experience was out of the world. Booking and arrangements were easy. The views are mind blowing. Do it! We were happy to pay for the high end tour which meant we had Miguel to ourselves on a personal tour. His passion and knowledge for the site and its history simply enhance the experience. A sense of humour and cheerful encouragement is just what you need to get up to the top of the pyramids. I'd recommend the walking trip rather than the bike ride! Quesidalla a pollo at the snack bar at the top of the site is just what you need after the leg workout. The local drinks tasting is a must do - tequila without the face, Miguel knows how. To finish the day we took the option of dinner in a local cave after a brief explore in the dark. What a day, Exceptional value. They've just started doing colour light shows outside of rainy season and the video looks amazing. A fantastic reason to return. Great team, guys. Thank you.
