In a word, wonderful! It’s been on my bucket list for years. Perfect day, and to see Segovia from the air was spectacular. Can’t recommend it highly enough but I do recommend you pack something to eat as it was a very early start and I was extremely hungry at the end of it. A flask of hot coffee would have been a good idea also. Not to be missed, and I’d do it again.

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!
