It was truly amazing - even the breakfast was so good! But please remember to bring a photo ID of every single participant (even kids under 12). Once we got there, I did not have a photo ID of my 11 year old and they refused to let her board (I just had her health card with her name in it) - we were almost in tears (and were told that no money would be refunded). After more discussion we had to call our Family in Canada to get a picture ID sent but it was stressful and could have been avoided if the instructions were changed from just “bring photo ID” to “bring photo ID for all participants, including minors”

Oh what a great day! To see the pyramids from above was truly a once in a lifetime experience. Organisation and administration was very professional, we only booked the trip the eve before and got a response within minutes. Big thanks to the whole crew and specially the pilot and the staff who did an excellent job inflating and deflating the balloon. Recommend any time!

If you are looking for a balloon flight over the pyramids at Teotihuacan, then this tour won’t disappoint! The hotel pickup was on time. The shuttle van was a bit cramped but sort of expected. The drive took about an hour but the processing was not too bad. Lots of balloons so bring an appropriate amount of patience!!
