It was an amazing experience! The view from the air is stunning, pyramids look huge and beautiful. The trip was well organized from the beginning to the end.
The hot air balloon tour over the Pyramids is a definite must do for any photographer or nature lover. Seeing these ancient ruins from that perspective is a totally different experience to seeing them from the ground up.
The ride is very smooth and gives you plenty of time to take amazing photos and take in the nature and surrounds.
The early morning shadows and clear skies provide an amazing backdrop for the photos and videos.
Truly an amazing experience and I am fortunate to have been able to do it.
Definitely something worth experiencing. Booked this trip on Trip Advisor through Viator and everything went off without a hitch. The ride goes up to 11,000 feet in altitude and the views are unbelievable, but from that height it can be a bit intimidating if heights make you nervous. It's kind of like being on the balcony of a really, really tall building. The ride itself may or may not go over the pyramids. You are really at the mercy of the wind. I was surprised just how little control the pilot had over the balloon and you land kind of wherever you land. If the pilot is good, it's near a road. I'd say it's slightly more dangerous than I thought it was for that reason. A few negatives, our pilot/tour guide spoke only Spanish, the tour would've cost 35 pp less if we booked it directly, and depending upon when your balloon lands, you may have to wait a long time before the bus takes you back to the city. But you get a great breakfast after the flight and all in all, I can't fault the experience. It was a lot of fun!
What a fantastic way to see the Teotihuacan Pyramids! The pilot was very knowledgeable about the Pyramids and the area, answering everyone's questions. Plus, he and the crew did a great job of getting us off the ground and back down safely. The basket holds eight, but was comfortable. You have to get up early and it's about an hour shuttle ride to the Pyramids, but it was worth it.
Fun way to see the pyramids. Nice ground crew, excellent snacks post flight
The balloon was ride was a lot of fun. We did have to wait maybe an hour before actually getting into the balloon, but that was fine. I was freezing, and they ran a blanket over to the balloon before we lifted off which was really thoughtful of them. Our tour guide for the pyramids was EXCELLENT. Knowledgeable, professional and friendly. Spoke English very well.
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.
Amazing fun. What a way to see this remarkable archeological site.
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!
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
Exciting tour of the temples from a unique angle and perspective. It comes with breakfast too. Highly recommend it.
This was an fabulous trip . Miguel was a most charming and informative guide. The early start was a bit daunting but absolutely worth it .
This was the highlight of our trip to Mexico and it did not disappoint. Pablo our guide was wonderful. The weather was amazing the views spectacular. It was worth every penny!
The tour was perfect. The guide was prompt and friendly. We lucked out with perfect clear weather for excellent views. Highly suggest the tour
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...
Amazing experience! Everyone was very friendly, it was well planned out and the pyramids were a oncer! Overall one of my highlights in our trip to Mexico (:
