Full-Day Teotihuacan Hot Air Balloon Tour from Mexico City

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Experience Teotihuacan Pyramids from the sky! Be part of a magical and colorful hot air balloon adventure. We will pick you up at your hotel in Mexico City around 5:00 am for a 1 hour drive to Teotihuacan. At sunrise we will prepare and inflate the hot-air balloon with the rest of your group (6-10 people) and as soon as it leaves the ground it's an unforgettable experience.

After landing, receive your certificate and celebrate with a glass of champagne to give thanks to the wind, fire, water and mother earth for allowing us to have this experience. Enjoy an included buffet breakfast. Then we will drop you off at the Teotihuacan pyramids around 9:30 am so you can walk at your own pace and admire them from the bottom as well (entrance is not included). We will pick you up around 1:00 pm and bring you back to Mexico City!
  • 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.
