The experience was really nice. You can't go wrong when you hot air balloon over a beautiful place during a sunrise. However, this itinerary was not clear so we were not sure what was included and the timing for our hotel checkout. So here are some details - BTW the Get your guide staff was very helpful - I contacted them at 9pm before the 5 am pickup the next day and they got me sorted out! 5 am - Meet at a local pick up area ( you do not necessarily get picked up at your hotel) 6 am - Arrive at the meetup spot where you register your passport and have coffee/tea. Around 6:30-7am we cram about 16 people into one basket and lift off. It was nice but there were four to one compartment and very uncomfortable. Flight is one hour, and you return to a nice big breakfast. Before 10 am if you did not add 'extras' to your trip you go back to the city. If you opted in then its 200 pesos more (return at 1 pm) + park entrance fee of 80 pesos.

This was one of the best things I did while in Mexico and I will treasure the beautiful pictures forever. The ride was so smooth, and I occasionally get a fear of heights but to be honest I felt much more vertigo looking down the super steep steps of Teotihuacan pyramids than being up in the air. Our guide who managed the balloon ride was also so precise that he landed us in the back of a pickup truck which I found amazing. The ride was nice and long, and a great value at any price in my opinion it has inspired me to book more hot air balloon rides in my future travels. The most stunning pictures of my entire trip were from this activity I can't recommend it enough

Was well organised. Professional. I am scared of heights, however was a smooth ride and by the end I was looking over the side of the basket. Took my 74 year old mother she loved it. Was an unbeliveable experience and I would highly recommend it. Awesome Amazing do it
