Low Price Guarantee
No Booking Fees
On this hot air balloon tour from Mexico City, see the ancient city of Teotihuacan from an angle that visitors rarely experience. After taking in a bird's-eye view of the empty archaeological site at sunrise, celebrate the flight with a glass of Champagne and then explore the ground at your own pace. Round-trip transport from your hotel is included, so you can avoid the stress of navigating on your own.
  • Rare bird's-eye view of ancient Teotihuacan from a hot air balloon
  • Option to explore on the ground with a guide: Pyramids and ruins are unmarked
  • Champagne toast included and breakfast provided on weekends
  • Hassle-free round-trip transport from downtown Mexico City hotels
What to Expect
The day starts with a convenient pickup from your hotel in Mexico City. On arrival at Teotihuacan, climb aboard a hot air balloon and watch the sun rise over the vast expanse of the “City of the Gods.” Snap photos of the pyramids from above, as well as the surrounding mountains, volcanoes, and valleys—a view very rarely seen by visitors. After landing, enjoy a glass of Champagne, and on weekends sit down for a complimentary breakfast. You are then dropped off at the entrance of Teotihuacan (admission not included), where you can explore at your own pace (or with a guide at own cost) before the crowds arrive. Enjoy comfortable transport back to your hotel at the end of the day, avoiding the hassle of navigating congested public transit on you own.

Best trip to take with no regrets. The balloon ride was incredible with a knowledgable pilot. At the pyramids be ready for guides at the site to try and get you to take a tour, we went on our own. There are only toilets at the Museum so be prepared. There was really no

It's not cheap, but I promise it's worth it. We had such an incredible time, I've never floated like that before. One thing I thought was going to happen was while In the air I thought the driver would be pointing things out and maybe telling us about it, he didn't. It's really

First let me say the balloon ride itself was great. It was over crowded as you could not move in the basket after they loaded everyone in, but still it was an experience I will not forget. The ride went directly over the sun pyramid and we got some great photos. What they
