What people are saying about State of Mexico

The driver picked us up promptly at 5:30am and drove us to the launch site. When we arrived we got checked in and they had coffee and snacks for us, which was nice since we hadn't eaten yet. We were then in que to get on a balloon. We got in and went on an incredible trip with the most amazing views. The weather was perfect that day with clear skies. After floating over the ruins we landed and were given a champagne toast. It was a very nice way to end the flight. Then we were driven back to the launch site. They had a nice breakfast buffet waiting for us. The food was good and plentiful. They also had a Mariachi band playing. After breakfast they gave us a certificate of the flight. We opted to go exlore the ruins for a couple hours. They drove us there and dropped us off we went exploring for a bit and then got picked up and driven back to our hotel. The service was fantastic from start to finish. I highly recommend booking with this company. You will have an incredible time.

The tour was amazing and beautiful! Fernando our captain gave us an unforgettable experience at the hot air balloon. We saw the pyramids, and all around Teotihuacan. You cannot miss this experience when visiting Mexico City. And you can choose transportation from Mexico City, which is very convenient if you don’t have a car. Loved it!

I am so grateful and thankful to have taken this balloon ride. The entire experience was incredible from start to finish. Even the breakfast was exquisite! This was a life changing adventure that I would urge everyone to experience!
