Teotihuacán Pyramids – Hot Air Balloon Tour From Mexico City
Being the region's most visited destination, Teotihuacán (teh-oh-tee-wah-kahn) will keep impressing its visitors with its awe inspiring pyramids, set amid what was once Mesoamerica’s greatest city. The sprawling site compares to the ancient ruins of the Yucatán and Chiapas for significance and anyone lucky enough to visit here will be amzed by the astonishing technological feat of the Teotihuacán civilization.
Located 50km northeast of Mexico City, in a mountain-ringed offshoot of the Valle de México, Teotihuacán is known for its two impressive pyramids, the Pirámide del Sol (Pyramid of the Sun) and the Pirámide de la Luna (Pyramid of the Moon), which dominate the remains of the metropolis.
Though ancient Teotihuacán covered more than 20 sq km, most of what can be seen today lies along nearly 2km of the Calzada de los Muertos.
Can you imagine flying over the Teotihucán Valley, gazing at the awe inspiring architectural site from high above? Enjoy an unforgettable experience, admiring one of the most important Mesoamerican civilizations from a bird's eye perspective.
Our meeting point is at the Independence Angel statue in Mexico City, where your English speaking guide will welcome you and prepare you for your experience. As we wait for the balloon to fill with hot air we will enjoy a coffee or a snack to prepare us for take-off. Once the balloon is ready, we will climb into the spacious basket and set out on our unique adventure in the skies.
As we reach altitude and keep approaching the ancient valley, we will get our first glimpse of the large pyramids. We will fly over the Teotihucán Valley and admire the best views of the most visited archaeological site in Mexico, in the comfort of our exclusive balloon without the hustle and bustle of the visitor crowds below. The flight will last between 30 minutes and 1 hour, depending on weather conditions.
Soaring high above, we will have a unique perspective of the "City of the Gods" admiring wonders such as the Sun Pyramid, the Quetzalpápalotl Palace, the "Road of the Dead", "Pyramid of the Moon" and Quetzalcoatl Temple. Your guide will fill you into the colorful, historical details of the ancient Aztec culture and the significance of the Teotihucán Valley.
As we finish our hot air balloon flight we will follow the worldwide balloon tradition with a toast and a full buffet breakfast. All participants will also receive a certificate to accredit them as certified hot-air-ballooners!
After we filled our bellies with a delicious breakfast buffet, we will continue to the Teotihucán ruins to get a close up experience of the various pyramids, plazas, murals and palaces. Stroll around the site for around 2 hours at your own pace.
But that's not all! We'll attend an artisan workshop to learn about Teotihuacan customs. We'll learn some of the uses of obsidian, the importance of the agave plant, how mead is fermented and how silver pieces are made. As the finishing touch to this special day, we'll enjoy a tasting of pulque, tequila, cactus liqueur, and mezcal. Salud!
After an exciting and event-filled 8 hour tour we will end our tour at our starting point in Mexico City.
