This was one of the best things I did while in Mexico and I will treasure the beautiful pictures forever. The ride was so smooth, and I occasionally get a fear of heights but to be honest I felt much more vertigo looking down the super steep steps of Teotihuacan pyramids than being up in the air. Our guide who managed the balloon ride was also so precise that he landed us in the back of a pickup truck which I found amazing. The ride was nice and long, and a great value at any price in my opinion it has inspired me to book more hot air balloon rides in my future travels. The most stunning pictures of my entire trip were from this activity I can't recommend it enough

Visit to do if you have the chance! It was well organized (hotel pick-up, pilot, guide), complete for a day (tours in the clouds, on land then by bike), and above all unforgettable. Thank you also to our guides (Victor the balloon pilot and Felipe the guide).

Our guide Migel was great. Helpful, informative, competent and friendly. The rest of the team is doing a good job too. Well worth the price. In addition to a wonderful hot air balloon ride at the beginning, many more exciting adventures await.
