Overall rating

Our tour with Julio was excellent. He was in communication with us in advance about our travel plan and arrival time. We took an Uber there, and the public bus back to CDMX, which worked well. He was very knowledgeable about the Teotihuacan Pyramids and the surrounding area. Since it was just our family on the tour, he let us set the pace in terms of how long we stayed at each sight and how far we walked. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Julio!

This was honestly so amazing! The hot air balloon isn’t scary at all. Such a smooth process and safe. we flew over the pyramids too. Our guide Cielo was the BEST. We went to the cave restaurant for breakfast after the ride and that food was BOMB! After that we went to go learn more about the culture and had free shots of different Mexican liquors. 10/10 recommendations

Lily and Francisco were amazing! Their explanations were so interesting and educational, we loved all the images and details they put in the tour! Highly recommended
