Great time overall. I...
Andre_A, Dec 2021
Great time overall. I would skip the breakfast - not the most palatable. A better option would be to have light breakfast with your champagne when you land.
Response from Host, Dec 2021
Hi Andre Sorry the breakfast wasn't to your liking The Gran Tecalli reaturant is one of the best oin the area but as you know sometimes popularity leads to lower standards. We are constantly looking to improve our service and this is an area we are hoping to fix in the very near future.
An Incredible Experience With Accommodating Staff
Allan_R, Dec 2021
What an incredible and unique way to see Teotihuacan and the surrounding areas. We were so impressed with everything -- from the easy pick up from our Airbnb to the coordination between our balloon operator and the on-the-ground staff for when we landed. Also, all of the staff made us feel very comfortable and were so accommodating. Don't pass up on this opportunity!
Response from Host, Dec 2021

Magical experience with Flying Pictures Mexico
Stephanie_T, Aug 2021
Our balloon tour over the Teotihuacan pyramids was an amazing experience. From seeing all the balloons inflated at dawn to the ride itself to the views of the pyramids from the sky, it was simply magical. Our pilot was skilled and experienced--he took us right over the top of the sun pyramid for fantastic views. And I have nothing but compliments for our tour operator, Flying Pictures Mexico. Pickup was on time and we knew what to do and what to expect every step of the way, door to door. We had an issue on our end--one of the people in our party got sick at the last minute--and they were very caring and accommodating in helping us deal with that. A balloon ride is an expensive experience and if I was to do it again I would book with Flying Pictures Mexico for sure.
Response from Host, Aug 2021
Our feeling is we should provide the best service we can for our clients and treat them as we would like to be treated. Actually our flights in Teotihuacan represent incredibly good value when compared to similar experiences worldwide. Hope to see you again but if not your great comments help us a lot so thank you for that.
