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 (:
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.
Was a fabulous trip......recommend this trip to anyone.....a tour of a lifetime............
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.
