Full description

Glide over the Teotihuacan Valley in a whimsical hot air balloon, with others flying alongside. Enjoy unique views of ancient pyramids passing by below and toast with sparkling wine. Back on the ground, take time to explore the sites and enjoy breakfast.

See the highest part of the pyramids of the sun and the moon. Your pilot will find the perfect time to share a bottle of sparkling wine, a traditional toast which has been a part of every balloon flight since 1783.  Once you're back down on solid ground, enjoy touring the streets of Teotihuacan. In Globopuerto you will receive a personalized flight certificate and a delicious traditional breakfast in a panoramic restaurant. After your breakfast, it will be time to visit the Archaeological Zone. Go up to the top of the Pyramid of the Sun and see the whole valley of Teotihuacan from above, or take a walk through the site to reach the top of the Pyramid of the Moon.

A magnificent experience Our driver, Roberto, was a spectacular guide, he arrived on time to pick us up, he was super friendly at all times, he explained everything to us in detail. The hot air balloon experience gave us a wonderful view of the pyramid and its surroundings. (Experience 100 points)

The ballon ride was amazing - everything the start, the flight itself and the landing was perfect. We flew directly over the pyramid and had the best weather possible! But be prepared to have a lot of waiting time after the ballon ride and after the stop at the mezcal/obsidian tour! And after the ballon ride it was pretty unorganised - nobody told us anything in english (we didnt know when the bus was leaving) and they didnt even bother to try describing us the information that was given in spanish in any way. Nevertheless if you are prepared for waiting times, some unorganised parts during the whole tour (except for the ballon ride) it's definitely worth it!

The balloon trip was great and thank is why we did this the view up from the air over the pyramids and surroundings was mesmerising . The only thing I would have done differently is just to book the ballon trip. The visit to the pyramids and the artisans village was not worth it. The service and the team where great
