Sky balloons was great from start to finish. The driver was on time at the pickup point just as agreed. Very friendly anf flexible as well. The balloon captain was also very friendly, the experience was incredible and the breakfast provided was also great. As per the rest of the tour that we were honestly not aware of being included, we had a perfect time. No complaints at all. Get ready to start trying alcohol as early as 7 am

In general, the organizers were able to be more vigilant, the visit to Teotihuacán was not what I expected, the access to its interior is closed neither can you go up and although they are undoubtedly beautiful I would have liked to know a little more they give you very little time to That, the best thing was the view of the balloon ride.

This experience was amazing! Doing the hot air balloons over the Teotihuacan Temples was such a fun and relaxing experience with great pictures. I’m glad this tour involved flying over and also walking through the archaeology zones. The hot air balloon company, Sky Air Balloons, I think is one of the best companies for doing this activity. They give you a free locker for your backpack before the hot air balloon, free coffee and sweet bread, and then after the ride they had a large buffet breakfast that was delicious. It was a very long day though, and there were a few stops along the way I didn’t expect like a underground cave restaurant and another restaurant/Aztec museum. Each had a quick informative tour about the Aztec culture, agave plant, and day of the dead history as well as some free mezcal, tequila, cactus juice, honey water tastings. Overall it was a very fun day and worth the trip!
