Don’t think, just book. Incredible experience worth every penny. Memories made for life, we loved every second and the guide was amazing - thank you!
On the fence about the extra cost for the balloon ride? 100% worth it!

This tour was the capstone of our trip to Mexico City, and it was a delight. Nothing can beat flying over the Teotihuacan Temples in a balloon at sunrise. The flight was exhilarating and extremely beautiful, and the tour that followed was educational and fun. Our tour guide Ginny was enthusiastic and knowledgable about the temples and gave us an expert tour of the historical site. Afterwards we as a bonus went to a cave, and then concluded with a happy hour at a gift shop. A couple things to note which made the experience even better: 1. they pick you up at your hotel in Mexico City, 2. You will be in a tour with probably 4-6 other folks who will likely be your friends by the end of the tour, 3. The balloon ride is bucket list level epic. Highly recommend.

The tour started with the bus driver getting lost, us being late and missing sunrise on the balloon. The balloon ride was great unbelievable. The pyramids where very interesting. The guide inter acted best with clients that could speak English. Often not answering our questions. But one other client was so helpful and explained loads to us.
