Hot air balloon was amazing, on-ground experience disappointing
UsuallyFlexible
, Sep 2021
The balloon ride itself was amazing. Started right after sunrise, friendly and competent pilot, well-organized, safe, beautiful. Five stars here! Breakfast afterwards was good. Buffer-style as described, ok food, fun mariachi music, tho a bit loud for 9am. However, the experience afterwards was not good. We paid for extra time at the pyramids to walk around. We asked (in writing) how much time that was, when we’ll be back, and were told we’d be back in Mexico City by 1pm. But when we were driven to the pyramids, the guide there explained we were there for three hours. Our options were to explore solo (free) or pay more money for a guided tour. Either way the ride back would start at 1:30pm, getting back to the city by 3pm. When we explained that didn’t fit either the written earlier communications nor our kids nap needs, there was zero empathy, just being told we were on our own. After a lot of walking around we managed to snag a taxi back to the city. There is very limited phone reception in the area, almost no users, and of course the taxis were a significant multiple of the prices of Uber. It was an amazing tour except this one part, which makes me hesitant to recommend this to anyone, especially families with young children, or anyone who wants to actually make predictable plans.

The hot air balloon ride was incredible and worth every penny. The tour went above and beyond and it came to the extra time at the pyramids. You had the option to purchase a small group tour that put the afternoon over the top - I highly recommend this experience!

We thoroughly enjoyed this experience - everything from the balloon flight to other aspects (communication, pickup, check-in and breakfast) was perfect. Our pilot Diego was fantastic with navigation and story telling, and rest of the crew was very professional. Breakfast was very good, and mariachi + tequila during breakfast was the icing on the cake!

A mostly good trip

While we enjoyed our trip overall, it was very frustrating and disappointing that despite being clear that we did not speak Spanish and wanted to be with a guide who spoke at least some English (and there clearly were some of these), we were placed with a pilot who made no attempt to communicate with us. He gave a safety message and we had no idea what he said. While others were asking questions and he shared information with them, we could not do this. Again - he didn’t even TRY! We chose to stay at the pyramids for more time and had a guide - we would highly recommend this. Martine was fun and had lots of good info to share. Beware, though, that he will take you to places and try to sell you stuff for about an hour of that time.

Even gorgeous views aside, this excursion is well organized, we had an amazing pilot (gracias Victor!), a staff that really cares about your experience. Great Mexican breakfast afterwards with a mariachi performance and tequila. I even received a pick up at 6am at my hostel even though it was not listed as an option and I was traveling by myself. We were also sorted according to language both for the pilot and so we could talk in the balloon which was very thoughtful! I went on a Sunday so the pyramids were closed and most of us headed back early with no issue. The drop off was a little rushed, but you get dropped off pretty close and walking a little isn't a big deal. Honestly this experience is absolutely thrilling, beautiful and well rounded and the staff couldn't have been more lovely. 10/10 would recommend!

It was a phenomenal experience, the pilot was super interactive and made the experience more memorable by getting close to the pyramids and interacting with us. The breakfast was simply delicious, the mariachi and tequila was a cherry on top!!! Highly recommend!
