What You Can Expect

Teotihuacan Pyramids Hot-Air Balloon Tour

Teotihuacan Pyramids Hot-Air Balloon Tour

After morning hotel pickup from Mexico City, get ready for a one-in-a-lifetime adventure. Receive a safety briefing and then climb into a colorful hot-air balloon with your guide. Float effortlessly up into the sky, soak up the gorgeous panoramas of the Mexico landscapes and then sail over the Teotihuacan pyramids, a UNESCO World Heritage site. You’ll be in the air for about an hour, with a vehicle following your balloon below, equipped with radio communication.

Your guide points out the major landmarks of Teotihuacan, aka the City of the Gods, including the Sun and Moon pyramids, Temple of Quetzalpapalotl and the Avenue of the Dead. Click away with your camera — very few visitors will have these aerial shots of Teotihuacan. 

After you land, board your vehicle that whisks you away to a place where you can commemorate your airborne adventure with a glass of wine and a flight certificate.

If you chose to take the guided Teotihuacan tour, continue to the archaeological park. In this pre-Columbian Mesoamerican city, wander down wide avenues, thousands of years old, and hear about the customs and culture of this ancient site. Remnants of fine pottery from Teotihuacan are exhibited around the world.

Enjoy up-close views of the pyramids that you saw from the air, including the Temple of the Feathered Serpent, the third-largest pyramid at Teotihuacan. Don’t miss the chance to climb up the Sun Pyramid and the Moon Pyramid.

Your tour ends with transport back to your Mexico City hotel.

This was part of my bucket list, and it's a truly remarkable experience. The view and the silence you experience when you are up there is awesome.

My friend nor I have ever been up in a hot-air balloon before, so no matter what this was going to be a tour for the books! Saying that, how can you beat floating over ancient pyramids and getting a view like no other? We had booked the tour with an english speaking guide, and were disappointed that one was not in fact provided for us. I would say do not rely on having an english speaking guide, but ours didn't speak much anyway he was just focused on giving us the best views possible and that was okay by us! If you want info about the pyramids with history and such, take a walking tour of Teotihuacan, and just take this tour to enjoy the magnificent views.

Wow, what an experience we had a blast. It and #39;s not everyday that you fly in a hot air balloon over an Aztec pyramid. We got pick up at the hotel were at the place in about an hour and were in the air pretty quick once we got there. Plenty of time in the balloon and view was amazing.

This tour was amazing. One gets to see the pyramids in a whole new way through a very different angle that you otherwise cannot not appreciate by foot. The aerial views are unbelievable. I would recommend this tour to everyone. Had a blast!

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
