Cheaper than Turkey and is an experience of a lifetime!

I was a bit hesitant in booking a hot air balloon tour but I went ahead it this was my highlight of my Mexico City trip. They pick you up from a location in Mexico City (P.S. Research the best pick up location, I was travelling alone and where I waited to be picked up felt very unsafe, especially because I was there from 5:00am). The drive to the site was not far, and everything was seamless once I arrived, the hot airballoon tour was AMAZING, seeing the ruins from above was MAGICAL! They said the tour would be in English but that didnt happen- I guess because I was the only English speaker the Captain didnt really speak English but I understood everything. If you are on the fence about this experience... DO IT!

The tour was simply amazing and absolutely worth it. There is no better way to see the pyramids. Definitely one of the best places in the world for a hot ballon tour. Even the breakfast afterwards was an experience in a nice garden with Mexican musicians. :-)

It was an exceptional experience. We had the best pilot - she was absolutely amazing! The views from the balloon were spectacular and the ride itself was not scary and very peaceful! We landed and the pilot did a toast with us - the pink moscato was real good. The breakfast provided was okay - I saw an ant in the eggs. The mariachi band, packed food and drinks were good! We spent more time at the pyramids and took the company’s vehicle back. My only issue was the ride back - it was scheduled at 1:30 but ended up beginning at 1:50 while we were waiting in the heat. We were also dropped around 15 minutes walk from our hotel instead of the pre-designated location due to street closures and traffic on Saturday. So it was tiring to walk back in the heat. But other than that an absolute amazing time!

I really wanted to climb the pyramids (my sister said it was amazing), but since the pandemic, tourists haven't been allowed to climb. Knowing that I decided to do the balloon tour and it did not disappoint. Although you can always add on the walking tour after the balloon - I think the balloons are the best way and enough. It's a lovely covid- substitute to the climb. The sights over the town and the pyramids with the morning light are unforgettable. It's a nice amount of time and the pilots are very safe about it. A beautiful experience that gives you the rest of the day for more activities.
