Full description
Enjoy a 1-hour morning hot-air balloon flight over the city of Segovia. Arrive at the take-off point with sufficient time to observe the inflation of the balloon and receive instructions from an expert pilot with years of experience. Fly over the aqueduct, the Cathedral, and the former royal palace and fortress - the Alcázar Real. Receive pictures and videos taken during the flight. A ceremony will be held at the end of the flight complete with champagne, breakfast, and a certificate when you touch down.

Continue the tour of the city, as you discover the Roman aqueduct, a UNESCO World Heritage site, on a walking tour led by our official guide. Marvel at this emblematic 1st-century monument, considered Spain's most important example of Roman-era civil engineering. Visit the outside of the last Gothic cathedral built in Spain and the Alcázar Real, built on a cliff at the confluence of 2 rivers near to the Sierra de Guadarrama mountain range.

After your cultural tour, experience Spanish gastronomy, enjoying the famous Cochinillo Segoviano (suckling pig). The suckling pig has had an ongoing presence in Iberian culinary traditions. AT the end of your tour, return to the center of Madrid in a comfortable minibus, where your guide will be able to recommend things to do during the rest of your stay.

this is the first time I ride on a hot air balloon. I glance over many source and only this provide transfer to & from Madrid.+ local guided tour. though we do not get access to the Segovia Cathedral, we were then provided with second round of breakfast, which is very good. the best part of the tour is the balloon tour coped with the sunrise time, Bravo. the only thing which they can better ooyr experience if they can let us had our photo and video back since it's been a week and we still do not get our 'memories' back.

This was a fantastic experience. Highly recommended.!

From the collection in a private minbus to the after flight breakfast the trip was highly professional, safe and fun! Lots of attention to detail to make it very special. Following the flight the trip included a guided city tour with a friendly informative guide ensuring that you had some free time for coffee and rest break as well as entrance into the cathedral and palace. Thank you get your guide!

The tour is very cool, personally it scared me a bit the height of the balloon but it is very cool if you are not afraid of the heights. Segovia is a very beautiful city and more if you discover the culture and history of the city with as much desire as the guide of We.
