The tour is absolutely amazing. It's not cheap, but it's definitely worth the money.

Our guide was excellent, and the balloon ride was great. A tour well worth the money and the time. Would recommend this tour to all.

It was the highlight if our trip.
If you have never been in a hot air balloon you gotta try it.
And if you can do it while floating serenely over ancient pyramids built before even the Aztec people's arrived in the area - all I can say us WOW.
Our pilot was an expert. And safety seemed to be the local tour operator's number one concern.
But when we rose above the clouds - that was a double WOW.
Viator booked us with the local tour operator

This was an amazing experience! I'm glad we called and booked as the website wasn't working properly for accepting credit cards, the support staff were friendly and quick to book the trip for us, the guide arrived right on-time and was very friendly [super guy] his name is Pablo, if you get him you will feel very comfortable, and welcomed. The balloon ride was amazing and the view was stunning and very spiritual. The breakfast was also great and a nice touch to try some Mexican food ... was very good! Everyone was friendly! We also did the tour to the pyramids and walked up both the large pyramids... You will love the photos you have from the sky more for the view as not many people are out in the morning, so you really do get two totally difference experiences booking both! I will return and do this with my nephews for sure...

This experience was without a doubt the highlight of my trip. It was both worry-free and exhilarating which is the best way to travel! My cheerful, knowledgeable, kind and generally delightful guide picked me up at my hotel, and I got to enjoy an amazing balloon ride followed by a warm breakfast and a tour of the archeological site. It's hard to describe in words, but I'm still in awe. This is one for the bucket list.

Amazing! Everything was perfect! Tour guide was right on time picking us up and was so informative. Everyone at the hot air balloon facility was professional and the ride was beautiful. Buffet breakfast was perfect and they went out of the way to make this a special birthday:-)

As part of a three-week trip throughout central Mexico, we signed up for the Teotihuacan Pyramids Hot-Air Balloon Tour to celebrate my husband's birthday. A couple of friends also joined us and we all agreed that the hot-air balloon ride was the highlight of our entire trip!

The guide picked us up at the exact time we were told he would arrive at our hotel, he was friendly and knowledgeable and spoke good English and other than having to get up so early, the day was a tremendous success!

After the hot-air balloon ride, we were treated to a very good and very complete Mexican breakfast in a lovely courtyard on the hot-air balloon grounds. Then, we took a quick trip to a silver and obsidian shop and then on to see the pyramids by land.

Having had such a great view of them from up above, we were less interested or inclined to walk up the stairs to stand on the top of the pyramid. We would recommend this tour to anyone who would love to see the pyramids and be a little lazy doing it, too! It's amazing how the perspective changes from up above and how you can see so much more of the layout of the various pyramids when you are above them, looking down! Not to mention that the site of the other beautiful hot-air balloons in the vicinity made for some great photos!

This was the one of the highlights of the trip to Mexico! The guide, Miguel, was excellent. The balloon ride over the pyramids was amazing, followed by a full breakfast and then ample time to explore and climb the pyramids.

The Balloon ride was a nice experience. Just had a bad experience from the local operator. At site they offer you other things to do like tour of pyramids. We thought to take that as well and they charged good amount of money. We thought it would include entry ticket as well but it did not so we ended up paying good amount for a 5 mins ride to Pyramids. So always clarify what you are getting :

Quite remarkable, how many balloons go up at one time (something like 25!) We never made it "over" the pyramids but hey, that's the way the wind was blowing that day. The sights were quite spectacular but keep in mind, there is no "guided tour" from the air -- you only get that from the walking portion.

The pilot was great. The ride was better than imagined!! Great experience. The driver was professional and friendly. The only improvement would be in flexibility. When we called the women who answered insisted we take the shuttle to and from and living in Mexico we wanted to drive. She said it was not an option and was quite an inconvenience. The brochure did not state this was mandatory but she insisted no matter how much we tried to get her to be flexible, other than that I would highly recommend.

Really very good. There were some organisation issues which are typical of Mexico but once you just relax into it all, it all goes very smoothly really. Beautiful day out and worth the money.

The hot air ballooning was fantastic. When we got out to the pyramids we were advised that we hadn't paid for this so had to repay..still a good day.

we were supposed to be picked up at 05:45 at the hotel. The bus came after complicated telephone interventions finally at 6:30!

This was a great tour, the only problem was they were an hour late on picking us up. I had ask for english speaking guide, poor instruction and getting us in a balloon, the van left without us and no champagne toast but had a good time.
