Welcome to the magical and incredibly colorful world of hot-air ballooning! Climb aboard one of the beautiful balloons and experience the excitement, beauty and tranquility of flying over one of Mexico's most famous landmarks and UNESCO World Heritage site, the Teotihuacan Pyramids. Enjoy the majestic aesthetic setting of the pyramids of the Sun and the Moon seen from above.

That first moment when your hot-air balloon leaves the ground is unforgettable. Each voyage becomes a personal adventure as you sail effortlessly through the sky, becoming the envy of all earthbound spectators as you enjoy panoramic views of Mexico's spectacular landscapes.

Flight duration is approximately one hour and the exact route is dictated by wind patterns. A four-wheel drive vehicle will follow below at all times, communicated by radio. After landing, the vehicle will take you to the meeting point where you'll celebrate with a glass of wine and a flight certificate, a valuable reminder of the once-in-a-lifetime experience you have just enjoyed.

If the optional guided Teotihuacan tour is selected, you'll continue to the famous archeological site to see the pyramids up close. Some must-see landmarks include the Pyramids of the Sun and Moon, the Temple of Quetzalpapalotl and the Avenue of the Dead.

Only 31 miles (50km) northeast of Mexico City are the archeological vestiges of the city of Teotihuacan itself, as well as myriad remnants of fine pottery from Teotihuacan which are today exhibited around the world.

My friend nor I have ever been up in a hot-air balloon before, so no matter what this was going to be a tour for the books! Saying that, how can you beat floating over ancient pyramids and getting a view like no other? We had booked the tour with an english speaking guide, and were disappointed that one was not in fact provided for us. I would say do not rely on having an english speaking guide, but ours didn't speak much anyway he was just focused on giving us the best views possible and that was okay by us! If you want info about the pyramids with history and such, take a walking tour of Teotihuacan, and just take this tour to enjoy the magnificent views.

Wow, what an experience we had a blast. It and #39;s not everyday that you fly in a hot air balloon over an Aztec pyramid. We got pick up at the hotel were at the place in about an hour and were in the air pretty quick once we got there. Plenty of time in the balloon and view was amazing.
