hot air ballon tour over the Pyramids of the Sun and MoonThe activity begins early in the morning when, after introductions and a short orientation, everyone will have a chance to participate in the inflation of the balloon, a magical experience. After a half hour, we’ll be ready for take off. The exhilarating first moment of having a balloon lift you off the ground is truly unforgettable. In this one hour flight, the itinerary of our journey is determined by where the wind takes us.

A 4 wheel drive vehicle will follow us at all times, communicating by radio. Upon landing, it will take us to the meeting point where we’ll have a wine celebration and receive flight certificates commemorating this once in a lifetime experience.

We’ll continue our tour up close and personal by heading to Teotihuacan where we’ll see the monumental Pyramids of the Sun and Moon, the Temple of Quetzalpapalotl and the Avenue of the Dead. Few cities in the world have been considered worthy of housing Gods who are accustomed to occupying loftier realms than those peopled by mere mortals. The most distinct symbols of the past generations and peoples who inhabited this site, just 50 kilometers northeast of Mexico City, are the archaeological remains of the city itself which show us just how they lived from day to day. Also notable are the myriad of fine pottery remnants found at Teotihuacan which are now exhibited around the world.

Did you know that the hot air balloon is the oldest successful human flight technology predating Peter Pan and Tinkerbell.
The first untethered manned hot air balloon flight was performed by Jean-François Pilâtre de Rozier and François Laurent d'Arlandes more than 250 years ago in Paris, France. They rode in a balloon created by two brothers.
Hot air balloons that can be propelled through the air rather than simply drifting with the wind are known as thermal airships.
Like in the Three Muskateers film.
A hot air balloon consists of a big bag that is capable of containing heated air. Suspended beneath is a gondola or wicker basket which carries passengers and a source of heat, in most cases a flame. The heated air inside the big bag makes it buoyant since it has a lower density than the relatively cold air outside the envelope.
Remember the old saying hot air rises.
As with all aircraft, hot air balloons cannot fly beyond the atmosphere. So no risk here of flying off to Neptune or anything. And remember the higher you are the better the view. The fabulous Freak Brothers said that. Book this now. I said that.
