This was my first time visiting Mexico City and the entire trip and all of its parts were very worth it. The Hot Air Balloon ride requires an early wake-up time but is one of the most fulfilling experiences you have in your life (you can touch a cloud). You also get a whole day's detailed tour of the Teotihuacan pyramids which is wonderful to see the history and culture of the place. I also liked learning about the crafts workshops and the history of tequila. Our tour guide, Carlos, had a great sense of humor and was very knowledgeable too.

Excellent experience! It all started on time. No delays. Proper and safe transportation. All experiences were great. The balloon ride, an experience like no other! Too impressive. Takeoff and landing were very safe. On the visit to the pyramids, our guide patiently explained to us and answered all questions. The bike ride, without waste! More than we expected. We went to some caves, to a museum and visited local artisans and bought some souvenirs. The food, breakfast, was sensational! Everything, absolutely everything, was top notch. Our hosts were great!

Very good experience, well organized and safe. All the people involved in our trip was very nice, educated and handle their job very good. The hot air balloon part was amazing, 45 minutes in the air, it was so quiet and peaceful with the spectacular view of the Teotihuacan Pyramids complex and the mountains around the place, just was breathtaking. I recommend this trip 100%
