Itinerary

In the early morning, meet your guide at your accommodation in Mexico City and head to Teotihuacan for this lifetime experience. Once there, take a coffee break while listening to safety instructions, then get on a colorful hot-air balloon and float up over Teotihuacan! Fly for about one hour and enjoy birds-eye perspectives of the UNESCO-listed Pyramids of the Sun and the Moon, Temple of Quetzalpapalotl, and Avenue of the Dead.

After landing, have a typical Mexican-style breakfast and celebrate receiving your flight certificate with a glass of wine. Once done with the food, follow your guide to take a private walking tour that will make you feel like living in the marvelous land of gods, and learn about the history of this Magnific ancient city. After Teotihuacan, opt to visit one of the most famous Catholic icons in the world: the Basilica de Guadalupe.  Be ready to get acquainted with the cult of Our Lady of Guadalupe and its enchanting history.

After a full day of new experiences, return to our vehicle and relax on the way back to your accommodation.

Logistics

DEPARTURE TIME AND LOCATION
The exact pickup and flight time may slightly vary as per climatic conditions (we will reach out to you in advance if any changes). Our guide will meet you at the requested time and location and might need to contact you by phone. Therefore, please kindly provide a valid phone number during your booking.

TRANSPORT: Complimentary pick-up/drop-off is included: please indicate the exact time and location for your pick-up during your booking (e.g. in the “Special Requirements” field). That is to say, we can pick you up from those parts of Mexico City: Polanco, Condesa, Roma, or Centro Historico. Other more remote locations might involve an extra fee.

TOUR DURATION AND CUSTOMIZATION: The standard duration of the tour counts from the moment of a meetup till the end of the tour. On the other hand, the tour is customizable, so we can adjust the time you spend at each destination. For example, if you want to visit an extra location (attraction/restaurant/market, etc.), you can do it on a complimentary basis if this visit (1) fits the default duration of the tour and  (2) doesn’t involve a major change of the route.

WHAT TO TAKE WITH YOU: Comfortable clothes and shoes; coat/jacket; hat/cap, sunglasses, and sunscreen; personal travel insurance; IDs or passports of each participant (original or a copy; digital or physical); good mood and curiosity.

Some of them fluently speak other languages (e.g. French, German, Italian, Mandarin, etc.) but those might depend on availability and cannot be fully guaranteed. If you want to have your tour in a language other than Spanish or English, please kindly inquire in advance.
