What people are saying about San Juan Teotihuacán

Oh what a great day! To see the pyramids from above was truly a once in a lifetime experience. Organisation and administration was very professional, we only booked the trip the eve before and got a response within minutes. Big thanks to the whole crew and specially the pilot and the staff who did an excellent job inflating and deflating the balloon. Recommend any time!

Great experience, and such a unique way to check out Teotihuacan! Would recommend to anyone looking for a half-to-2/3 day activity. Definitely pack layers for the morning hot air balloon — it’s chilly when you arrive and first get into the air. I had a short sleeve tee, cotton hoodie, and windbreaker layer (and that was perfect).

If you are looking for a balloon flight over the pyramids at Teotihuacan, then this tour won’t disappoint! The hotel pickup was on time. The shuttle van was a bit cramped but sort of expected. The drive took about an hour but the processing was not too bad. Lots of balloons so bring an appropriate amount of patience!!

This was amazing exeperience, watching the sunrise over the temples was mindblowing. The experience also included breakfast, a chance to buy souvenirs from local vendors and transport and fast track entrance to the temples

Excellent trip! Highly recommend it, the team were incredibly well organised. It is an amazing experience.
