The hot air balloon ride was calm and gives you a great perspective of the pyramid/ruins compound. Our guide, Eloy and his driver were wonderful!!

It’s really a breathtaking experience. Everything was well planned and organized with an eye for details. Bike and walking tours were organized in small groups and included some not well-known location, that worth visiting. I especially appreciated that the tour organizers paid attention that it was my birthday and arranged a lot of surprises.

The advertisement doesn’t tell you all that is included in this tour! Ride from hotel, Balloon ride, garden breakfast, tequila, mariachi band, guided tour of ruins, cave explore, liquor tasting, local lunch, and ride back to your hotel. We travel a lot. By far the best adventure tour I have ever taken. Loved that we did not spend a lot of time shopping at tourist trap stuff.

There are A LOT of tours that claim to do what this group tour does. It made me nervous because I wanted to have an amazing trip and I didn't want anything to go wrong. I could not have been more pleased with the Teotihuacan Hot Air Balloon Ride with Optional Bike or Walking Tour conducted by Teotihuacan en bici. I was shepherded all day like a VIP. The balloon ride was incredible, the views were really beyond description. The whole experience was magical and I felt entirely safe and cared for the entire time. I chose the walking tour option and ended up having a guide all to myself. Eloy was one of the best guides I have ever had. He was knowledgeable and passionate about Teotihuacan and the conversations were easy and free flowing. He answered every one of my questions. We saw it "all". I feel as if we left no stone unturned. I saw everything...we walked our butts off. He took me to ancient sites where we were the only people on site at the time. It felt like spending the afternoon with a very good, old friend. I'm sure the other guides are equally good at what they do but if you are lucky enough to get Eloy as your guide, you will most definitely have the time of your life. I would heartily recommend this tour. It was money well-spent!

It's must..breath taking baloon ride and view..so peaceful..landing was quit fun..we tried like 5times but crew was no near by..😂 landed in some field , but captain is Pro..and some passengers even took ride back in basket😃. Breakfast with mariachi live band. Great food and even tequila 😋 After we were transfered to pyramids with our tour guide Luis. He was very knowledgeable of history and we were blown away by his story telling. After taking grounds we went also to visit near by village were are still visible paintings on walls from that time. Time for bike ride..visited caves and had great experience in private residence ..Husband is working on polishing stones and definitely knows his craft and his wife make delicious salsas...and there was also tequila...We had some laughs, both purchased multiple suvenirs..get that salsa..sooo good End when we thought it's over..there was late lunch with view on pyramid...what a day ...Amazing..thank you

Brilliant trip. Picked up on time early in the morning and taken to the airfield where I had a breakfast snack. We then went to the launch site and took to the skies in the hot air balloon which was truly spectacular (one the best experiences I've ever had). After that, I had breakfast, followed by a guided tour of Teotihuacan, a trip to the caves, local business and then a late lunch before being transported home. Thoroughly recommend this and would do the balloon trip all over again!

Amazing experience. Details sent out on pick-up location and time and driver was on time for pickup. The hot air balloon ride was fairly well organized and such a highlight! The tour afterwards was very well organized and the tour guide was knowledgeable. I very much enjoyed the bike part of the tour as well! Bring a light jacket for the hot air balloon ride and shades and a light long sleeve top for the walking/cycling.

It was an amazing experience! Starting with the hot air balloon, beautiful view, the crew were extremely experienced, and the fact that were many many balloons in the air at the same time, made the view more incredible. After that, the walking tour at the Pyramids + bike tour around the village, with the tour guide Eloy, was very insightful and we learned A LOT about the past. Eloy is an excellent guide!! Taught us everything about Teotihuacán and also gave us some suggestions on what to see and do at CDMX.

Overall my experience on this excursion was great. We arrived early in our own transportation to the balloon ride and it was not a problem. We checked them early and they probably got us on a balloon and in the air. We felt safe and secure at all times in a balloon and it was a beautiful experience that we really loved. The next part of our excursion was the guided tour, we had a guy name Ramon and he was very knowledgeable and helpful. He new mini interesting facts about the pyramids in the land. I would recommend this try to anyone who wants to visit the pyramids.

SUPERB EXPERIENCE

the ride on a hot air balloon was superb! some 60 balloons in the air at the same time, floating above the pyramids, following your shade on the ground, a great landing (directly on the trailer to transport the balloon back) , it was just exhilarating. It was my first experience, but it will definitely not be my last (no matter where on this earth!)

A must see- teotihuacan by hot air balloon!

The pick up is early around 5am from Mexico City, but definitely worth it! A little over an hour ride then check in with coffee, fresh fruit and assorted sweets. Our balloon basket held 16, but plenty of room. There are four compartments 4 each. The ride was fantastic. The view of teotihuacan let’s you see how massive this area was. There are about 50 balloons in the air and the sunrise was beautiful! Our pilot was fantastic and landed in the trailer. There are trucks with about 6 men following to hold the basket after landing and stowing the balloon. Great crew! After the 45 minute flight you have a huge breakfast with mariachi band entertainment. We chose the blke ride option so were first brought to the teotihuacan site for a informative walk and photos with our guide. We then walked back and got our bikes for a 12 kilometer ride. This is broken up into 4 sections. We biked to a chocolate demonstration and tasting, native drinks tasting. We visited a cave with a n intersection light shaft. The colorful murals on the buildings outside were reproductions of an Aztec original painting. We then visited a family that has been carving obsidian for over 50 years. Very informative and they also had a mezcal and tequila tasting. Then to a bountiful lunch in a lovely restaurant. We left to return to Mexico City a little after 4pm. Wonderful day-we highly recommend!

We had a fantastic half day. We were greeted with complimentary coffee,tea and cookies. Afterwards to the balloon with Roman who is a very good and safe pilot. The ride and the scenery was breathtaking!! We would do it again with no hesitation. The brunch and mariachi afterwords was a pleasant and delightful treat.

The guide on the walking tour was great! Very fun and informative. Checking in at the balloon launch was a little confusing. The group I rode there in the van with did not all ride the same balloon together but nothing major. It was a wonderful experience!
