The actual experience was great. It was my first time and would definitely do again based on this experience. However, they seemed to have forgot about me in the morning and I was waiting at the designated pick up spot for a while. Finally called and they didn't quite sound like they had my reservation even though I paid already and had a confirmation from them. So I missed out a bit on the beginning setup/pictures and was a little worried I would miss it completely. Turned out fine in the end,
This is a top notch company. Flying Pictures Mexico staff made us feel wonderful. My son, my husband and I were picked up a few minutes before the scheduled time. The driver explained to us how long it will take the drive to their hot air balloon location near Teotihuacan. We were able to experience all the preparations for the flight. The pilot explained to us what to expect, and answered all our questions. Take off was very smooth. We realized we were on the air because we could see we were going up, but it felt like we were still on land. Obid and Manuel are the best pilots. There were hot air balloons from other companies on the air, but we were the only ones who actually could fly over one of the two pyramids (this thanks to the great knowledge of Obid and his assistant). They and their assisting crew are excellent. Thank you very much to all of you at Flying Pictures Mexico.
Ha sido maravilloso, súper recomendado.
Muy buena atención y una experiencia maravillosa.
La experiencia estuvo realmente espectacular...espero volver y a mi hija en mi compania. gracias...
Una experiencia Increible...Gran Profesionalismo!!!
The whole experience was grate and the owners very attentive. Breakfast was more than full. I only want to suggest more time above the pyramids. If this is not possible then it is better to spend less time over the village. It gets a little boring. Also waiting for the staff to pack the balloon and the rest gear was a bit of a delay although they were working pretty quickly. These suggestions are only for the better.
It was an amazing experience!!! Awesome way to see the temples, would recommend to everyone!

Ofrecen un excelente servicio, todo el personal muy atento, totalmente lo que esperaba. Muchas gracias
Outstanding experience. Really recommend this to everyone staying in CDMX and for people interested in the history. To fly over the pyramides of Teohituacán in an air balloon is a once in a lifetime experience. Also visiting the museum and walking around the museum is so worth it. Definitely a MUST do.
Everything was a described in the Page
Todo estuvo muy organizado Esperba volar mas alto
El viaje estuvo genial.
Thanks you so much for an outstanding experience. Your service and the whole set up was more than I expected. The crew was well trained, the balloon driver was very kind, friendly and she provide a lot of information. After the flight it was a wonderful breakfast at Gran Teocalli. Thanks you guys for dropping me of at the pyramid site after. Tanks again to all of your staff
La mejor experiencia de mi vida, gracias al profesionalismo y seguridad que brindo el equipo de FlyingPictures, hicieron de mi sueño una experiencia inolvidable. El equipo entero fue muy amable y amigable. Excelente servicio, mi esposo y yo estamos muy contentos y agradecidos!!
The balloon flight was amazing! My girlfriend and I joined a shared balloon flight (8 people + pilot) last October. We booked a flight only (without hotel pickup), because we were staying nearby the meeting point in Teotihuacan. Early in the morning we met the group at the meeting point and from thereon we were taken to the balloon airport near the pyramids where the balloons were being prepared. It was a beautiful sight to see the balloons being filled up. While waiting we were offered hot coffee which was welcomed very much by everyone on the cold morning. We were very fortunate with the weather and the wind conditions, but we also had a great pilot. She took us straight over the top of the Pyramid of the Sun and allowed us to have a great view over the historical site with a nice sun rise. The flight took a small hour and we landed safe and sound on the other side of Teotihuacan in a meadow. Soon the balloon crew arrived to pack up the balloon while we enjoyed some champagne. Afterwards we were taken back to the meeting point where we had a buffet breakfast and also each of us got a nice certificate as proof for the balloon flight. All in all, a great adventure and experience made possible by a very professional and experienced crew where safety comes first!
A wonderful experience and would suggest this to all I know. Great fun with lots of beautiful memories.

I had a wonderful experience with Flying Pictures in Teotihuacan during our balloon flight in December 2016. Their staff was always friendly and helpful, the weather was perfect and we got really close to both the Pyramids of the Sun and of the Moon - it was an entirely novel way of seeing these magnificent buildings. I also recommend buying the photos they will take during the flight (there's a GoPro camera attached to the balloon) - it's an extra, but will make for a wonderful souvenir!
The experience was absolutely epic! Above and beyond our expectations. Will totally do it again and recommend it! Thank you!!
Muy profesionales, todo fenomenal e incluso nos recogieron del hotel en la madrugada. Un 10
Very nice team. it's unfortunate that no one knew anything about Teitihuacan. Also, the balloon flew very low over the houses and electric wires in the neighborhood - a bit disconcerting. But We enjoyed the experience.
