    I'd never been on a hot air balloon before, and the idea of seeing Old Town seemed quite exciting....so I booked. The van arrived at the hotel right on time, I jumped in, the driver and pilot and I chatted about various flying experiences etc, and I guess it still hadn't sunk in yet....Then we arrived in this beautiful park, where locals and tourists had started to gather in groups with kids, all around over the park. We were given very explicit instructions on what to do or not to do, for the safety of everyone who was going to fly. There were 6 guests and the pilot....and we all kinda started getting to know one another while the balloon was being prepared. The actual flight was about 45 minutes, but from pick up to drop off, this beautiful, life-changing adventure lasted about 3 and a 1/2 hours. When the balloon was all ready, we were carefully instructed on how to get into the basket etc. Once we were all in, the balloon lifted off so slowly that it was near impossible to even feel that we had lifted. These groups of people slowly became smaller, and as we gently rose, we started moving west. We could see the vastly different layout of the Old Town, then over the city which is fairly large from the air....we kept traveling west, to the setting sun, and the low angle lighting was perfect for great photography. Except for the sound of the burners occasionally, there was absolute silence, and a pilot who was so skilled, that my fears of heights, and crashing became nothing, I was awed like never before .... we then crossed over the river, and carried on past the city, over forest, rural areas, and highlights were briefly explained to us, without detracting from the most beautiful scenery, which only seemed to get better as we were then allowed to fly at much lower altitude (air traffic control rules), and actually see the houses and farms and forests...and I kept thinking that this was the highlight of my life so far, and how glad I was that I trusted my gut and booked this. The entire team was so professional, humorous and knowledgeable, and safety was taken extremely seriously, so I can honestly say that i didn't feel a hint of fear at any point during this incredible ride....if you have the means and time, I highly recommend this. I tried to book a 2nd tour for following day, but was sold out. Excellent!!!!! ******

    During our brief visit to Vilnius, we had the opportunity to take a hot air balloon flight. Although originally scheduled over the Old Town, the winds were contrary, so we flew over Trakai Castle instead. The team was great and spoke excellent English. We flew with pilot/owner Vytautas Samarinas, who told us much about Lithuania and ballooning. We flew about nine miles in just under an hour and saw not only the impressive Trakai Castle from the air but also wild boars and deer as we flew just over the treetops of a neighboring forest. The crew picked us up at our hotel and returned us there. I have no hesitation in recommending them and would love to fly with them again, next time over Old Town Vilnius.

    It was very good experience with beautiful sunset.

    In a word - superb. The whole thing from being involved in getting our balloon ready for take-off, through to helping to put it away after landing. The scenery was stunning and our guide excellent. Of course we had beautiful weather which always helps. But I can't recommend this trp strongly enough and would definitely do it again.

    Balloon flight over Vilnius was a great and beatiful experience! We appreciated the professional crew and the way we were treated from pick-up at the hotel and until we was back at the hotel. Highly recommended!

    due to an impending storm we were unable to make the flight over Vilnuis but had a lovely flight over the nearby lakes and castle at Trakai.

    Fantastic ride over the Old Town with Arturuz - the pilot and Lukas - the driver, both great guys. We were collected at 6:10am for our morning balloon flight. We were drive to the take off site where the balloon had to be inflated, some of the passengers helped with this by holding the balloon. We were shown how to climb into the basket safely and then we lifted off or should I say up! The views were magnificent and the weather perfect for a smooth, calm ride. It can be very hot in the balloon as the burner is switched on periodically to adjust height etc. Once landed after the balloon is packed away we had a traditional ceremony for 1st time passengers. We were driven back to our hotel and arrived at 9:40am. I would definitely recommend a balloon flight in Vilnius and with this Company!
