What people are saying about Mexico City

Very professional, a real awesome experience! If you take the deal the stay at Teotihuacán I would suggest taking the tour they offer you when exiting at the entrance. As three hours of free time is way to much as there’s no signage at the ruins. You’re on your own without any shade. The extra tour costs an extra $580 pesos but brings you to a co-op where you learn about the local handicrafts and tequila, then you get to your the ruins with a guide and as an extra you visit caves with a spiritual surprise! The whole day was awesome and with the extra tour the deal is still cheaper then taking a hot air balloon in any other country!

The whole experience was seemless! We got coffee and fruit on arrival and then got to see the balloons getting ready. The ballon ride at sunrise is amazing, and we got to fly over the Piramid, which was such a incredible experience. It felt very safe. After the ride we were taken back by car and had a nice breakfast in a beautiful garden with a mariachi band. Then we were transporter to the Piramid where we bought a guided tour which I also can recommend.

This was an amazing experience! Everything from pickup from CDMX to breakfast, the balloon ride and the tour afterwards went very seamlessly. I highly recommend going with the guided tour in the archaeological zone after the balloon ride, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun, and all transportation was included. It was definitely much better than if we had tried to explore on our own.

The tour was great! The pick-up was right on time, everything was very well organized on-site and safe. It was a great tour and the breakfast was delicious. Highly recommended

An amazing experience! Got to see the pyramids up close from our hot air balloon! Also the trip was well planned!
