Great experience, and such a unique way to check out Teotihuacan! Would recommend to anyone looking for a half-to-2/3 day activity. Definitely pack layers for the morning hot air balloon — it’s chilly when you arrive and first get into the air. I had a short sleeve tee, cotton hoodie, and windbreaker layer (and that was perfect).

The early hotel pick up went smoothly. The balloon ride was amazing, such the perfect way to view the whole ancient city. Carlos was a skilled pilot. The breakfast was plenty and satisfactory. If you do not speak any Spanish, you may have difficulty. In my experience at this time, the drivers and guides didn't speak English. During the walking tour of the pyramids, you can hire an English guide with additional money. However, you can also just read about the history in the internet. Bring money if you want to buy gifts. Read up on tipping in Mexico so you can prepare appropriately. This experience was a great value.

It was our first balloon flight. It is interesting how balloons are inflated, landing is also a separate attraction. Everything was well organized, the price of the package tour included transfer, ticket to the archaeological area, coffee and a bun in the morning and a lunch buffet. Solo travelers who flew with us in a gondola paid almost that much just for the flight. Get ready to get up early as the flight is at dawn.
