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%

The best tour of my entire trip. The best 250 dollars invested in my life. After flying for 50 minutes I was surprised with a breakfast and also 2 lunches between the walks through the archaeological center. My excellent guide. They treated me like a queen until they sent me to look for a battery for my cell phone because I had run out.
