Overall it was really good. Everything was perfect but just 1 catch. The website and app has misleading information which says pickup from all hotels in mexico city but they only have few hotels covered. The issue must be address as what I faced would not be faced by any new tourist. They should specially mention before booking that pickup is either from all hotels or list of few hotels. Rest trip was very good as they arranged pickup for me but I did spent couple of hours and company also took time figure this out.

This hot air balloon trip was just amazing. We arrived there ourselves, so we didnt need the transport. The balloon starts at 7am, you should be there 6:30 am. We booked the private balloon tour for just two people. The captain was very nice and professional. The balloon starts while is just getting day light. Up in the air you enjoy the sun rise over the pyramids, is just mind blowing. Up in the air, we opened the bottle of the bubble wine and enjoyed the adventure. After about 1 hour you land back at the start place and you can enjoy a nice breakfast at the backyard with a small fruit plate with yoghurt, and a second plate with scrambled eggs. Everything was well organized, very professional, always felt save. Highly recommend!

So glad I did this! I booked this a month in advance and they did exactly what they said they will do. We got picked up in a clean white van right outside our hotel with an extremely friendly driver who takes us straight to the hot air ballon port. Arriving, they check your temperature before entering. Once checked in; you are all set to go up in the air. From there it’s just a beautiful experience! After they bring you back to the port for a free breakfast, give you a certificate and have you toast with champagne. When finished with the after ceremony, they drive you back to your hotel. Great staff, great vibes, great views. Definitely recommend! Do it!
