  • We had a really good time. The only thing I would change was they were a little disorganized. They were all very nice and did an amazing job at getting us to the airport on time.

  • Wonderful experience! We got an early morning pick up from our hotel, right on time. Watched the sunrise over Toledo as David and Nyx got the balloon ready for flight. We boarded and off we went for a spectacular one hour ride over the countryside. So peaceful and views are amazing. We landed in a field and all of us couldn't stop laughing as we landed the basket laying down. Such a funny experience. Afterwards we were toasted our flight with a Spanish breakfast and cave. David and Nyx are great people who obviously have a passion for balloon flying. They worked hard to make it an exceptional experience. I would definitely recommend a morning flight with them!

  • Even though it was a little cool the ride and views of Segovia were awesome ! Two thumbs up!

  • This was a great experience overall. the few things I would change - they do a champagne toast with light snacks at the end of the activity. I would suggest doing the champagne in the hot air. they are able to stay up there for several hours but its the same view and they can't control the direction too much as it goes with the wind. so to change it up, I would have done champagne there or play some music or something. I would suggest booking in first day because the pick up time is about 5 am. Also, make sure you bring warm clothes. IT is SIGNIFICANTLY colder in the air in the morning.

  • Our balloon ride over Segovia was a highlight of our trip! Dave was an adept pilot, and the entire staff fostered a strong camaraderie among the twenty of us flying together. The only negative was waiting on a Madrid street corner at 5 am instead of the hotel pick-up we thought we had reserved.

  • We paid extra for hotel pick up and drop off for the Hot Air Ballon ride over Segovia,We were informed the day before our trip,to meet the driver at a different hotel at 5:25am the day of the ride,Unfortunately the driver arrived at 5:40am.The baloon ride was excellant,and the tour staff were very well organized.This was our first trip to Madrid,so standing on the street at this time of the am was less than comfortable We were not offered any type of refund for not getting the pick up and drop off that we initially paid extra for.

  • Hola

  • Amazing!

    Super easy pick up with the excellent communication. The hot air balloon was amazing. We saw everything from blowing it up, to folding it back up. Everything was very professional and safety was the top concern. A hot air balloon is the highlight of any trip to Spain!

  • Great trip! David our pilot and guide was excellent and spoke good english, which was really nice for getting area history and landmarks. The tapas and champagne at the end were really good, and the time spent in Segovia to get pictures of the aquaduct and a coffee made the trip all that much more authentic and complete. I highly recommend this tour!
