Do you like waking up unreasonably early only to sit around for three hours while nobody communicates with you? Do you like then waiting for an hour while your transportation is organized back to Mexico City? Do you like feeling nauseous in a van with no air and painful music? Then this is the tour for you. You’ll like it even more when you drive away watching every other tour company flying balloons in the sky, feeling hungry because they barely fed you. Great tour.

We waited for 3 hours and at the end the air balloon ride was cancelled. While other companies were releasing their balloons. We were very disappointed

5 am pick up, van on time, but driver wasted over 15 minutes deciding if late booking, he had Victor confirmation on his phone- but this not good enough for driver, could go with rest of us. So all of us stood around in the cold waiting for driver to get a call confirming what he had already paid for. VERY POOR ORGANIZATION. Off to cold, dark, rocky start. Balloon guide told us there would be tequila, there WAS NOT, I checked with 2 staff. After breakfast told 45 minute wait for ride back. Everyone, all 150+, left at same time, organized for company convenience, not paying customer. Half hour in the air was amazing, rest of experience 3rd class or worse.

Flight was canceled due to “weather,” we were advised after waiting for 3 hrs. Other companies took off despite the same conditions bc there were dozens of balloons in the air. Regardless of conditions that were out of the company’s control, their communication was poor and took over an hour to arrange for transportation back. Staff was rude and acted like we inconvenienced them. Very disappointed that we wasted a day with them.

"plus extra time to visit the Pyramids of Teotihuacan" just means that they drop you off at the entrance of the pyramids, and pick you up 3h later - it does not cover the ticket to the pyramids, nor any tours. If you don't want to just stand in the same spot a long distance outside of the pyramids, you need to pay more. We were also unlucky that the shuttle back to our hotels in Mexico City was blocked by ongoing protest. While if the driver waited for like ~15min the protest would end and we are able to go through, he decided to drop us off before the street of the protest, and we (only know like 5 words in Spanish) had to figure out our way back without knowledge about Mexico City's transportation system. While I understand, it's definitely not a good experience. Besides this, super fun experience and stunning view on the hot air ballon! The ballon ride was very smooth and the operator seemed like an expert. Would recommend going during sunlight for the views.

This was such an amazing once in a life time experience. We were well taken care of. It was safe, calm and so beautiful. To see the pyramids of Teotuacan from this view is well worth the trip.

The whole experience was incredible. From the morning coffee and cookies, the hot air balloon pilot, the duration of the flight, the breakfast with mariachi after and drop off. This is well worth it and I truly recommend! All staff we encountered were very nice and hospitable. I have been to the pyramids once before and now I know I will always recommend the hot air balloon as part of visiting the pyramids. Thank you!
