What people are saying about Greater Mexico City

My family of 5 and I booked a trip with Travesias Mexico to climb on Iztaccihuatl. The business is an established business with a physical office in the La Condesa neighborhood. Their office has a range of outdoor gear for renting if needed. The guides were very nice and knowldgeable. They had both had a lot of experience in the area as hikers / climbers / guides. They were accommodating to my family's needs and abilities during the trip. I would definitely do a trip with this group again and I highly recommend them. Mike C Seattle, USA

This was an amazing experience! Everything from pickup from CDMX to breakfast, the balloon ride and the tour afterwards went very seamlessly. I highly recommend going with the guided tour in the archaeological zone after the balloon ride, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun, and all transportation was included. It was definitely much better than if we had tried to explore on our own.

This was the best experience I had during my visit to CDMX. I love that they pick you up from your location. I registered separately from my group, but they still managed to put us all together. The ride was smooth and the views were wonderful.

The experience was excellent! Pick up was on time, coffee at the beginning was spot on, the pilot made us feel very safe, the champagne at the end of the flight was super nice and then a good breakfast to conclude. I recommend this experience

An amazing experience! Got to see the pyramids up close from our hot air balloon! Also the trip was well planned!
