Depart from your centrally located Madrid hotel in an air-conditioned minivan, or make your own way to the launch site, depending on which option you selected. Feel your adrenaline levels surge as you approach the site and see your brightly colored hot-air balloon preparing to inflate.

Climb into the balloon’s sturdy basket and hear the roar of the gas flame as you begin to ascend into the air. Capture panoramic photographs of either the ancient sprawl of Toledo, with its winding River Tajo and the majestic Alćazar of Toledo, or the medieval myriad of Segovia, with its colossal aqueduct considered one of the region’s best-preserved Roman monuments. 

Cruise over the Gothic architecture and ancient structures of the city you selected and listen to captivating commentary about the rich heritage of each area. Return to solid ground after an hour in the air and tantalize your taste buds with a brunch comprised of Spanish specialties; sample cured meats, creamy cheeses and freshly baked bread.

Peruse your souvenir photos while toasting glasses of chilled and sparkling cava then bid your guide and group farewell and return to your Madrid hotel or stay in Toledo or Segovia depending on which option you selected.

Dangerous crash landing on side into rocks and thistles
Brooke_T
, Jan 2022
Unfortunately I cannot recommend this company. We crash landed on our side into a field of rocks and prickly thistles. Several people were throw on to the ground, one being me. I was covered head to toe in thistles that couldn’t be fully removed. I spent days still trying to get all of the pieces of thistles out of my skin. We were also told there would be a maximum of 10 people in the basket and there were 12. It was a beautiful ride but obviously not safe in the slightest bit. There was no apologies, no explanation. The guests were then forced to pack up the balloon, turn the basket back right side up, lift it onto the trailer, etc. Do yourself a favor and book a safer company that doesn’t require you to do all the work, especially after a crash landing.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2022
Dear Brooke, We believe you misunderstood completely the flight and the landing. We reviewed the landing and it was completely normal; on any balloon flight, if it's a bit breezy it drags during the landing and the basket rests comes sideways at the end. There is no crash not any danger whasoever in this procedure. As you saw yourself, another balloon from a different company landed in the same field and in the same way. Moreover, the passengers are not 'forced' to pack, we suggest to help to the people who wants as is funny to be a member of the crew for a while, and packing together is common in any balloon flight you will experience in Europe. Nowhere is written that you are flying in a 10 people basket as we have balloons up to 16 people. We have excelent reviews of that flight, we are sorry you didn't enjoyed it.

We had a great time throughout the whole flight! Perfect view of Segovia from the hot air balloon, totally breathtaking! We get to see the nice morning sun as well (thanks to the good weather). And our pilot did the most perfect landing ever! Sorry I didn't ask for his name, but I uploaded a pic of him here. ;) Highly recommended!

Flying with my family ...we almost die! We had never expected to be around unpredictable people,very unprofessional
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
Dear Emilio, What you say is not only completely exagerated but also untrue. You didn't read the tour explanation in Viator as you thought you were going to travel from Madrid to Toledo in the balloon, while we were giving you the transportation from your hotel to the launchfield in Toledo by van, who arrived completely on time, and you started the flight from there. During all the trip, you were making wrong and unacceptable comments which made other passengers have an unpleasant experience, just because you misunderstood that the balloon was not starting in Madrid. The pilot showed you in the Viator tour details but you dind't wanted to understand it. The only different event in your tour was that you had to wait for 15 minutes for a late passengers to arrive, other than this the balloon flight was completely normal and no, you were not any close to die. We suggest that for the future, you read what you will expect in a balloon flight or in any other experience. Regards,

Great views, felt a bit disorganized
Haley_V
, Oct 2021
Our trip was over Segovia and it was absolutely beautiful. The pilot was very skilled and the entire flight felt very safe. One suggestion for the touring company would be to share exactly the process right up from the beginning with a guide. That was very disorganized.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Dear Haley, thanks for your comments as we take them very seriously to improve the customer's experience. We believe the activity is clearly described in the reservation process, and your pilot is your guide through the flight. Looking to your records, you were picked up in time at the specified location so we would be very grateful if you can send us a private message indicating which items you felt we must improve. Regards,

Dear Sam, We sent a message through Viator explaining that the flight was canceled due to the weather conditions, but it looks that it didn't came through in your case. We are investigating what happened, but it may came in your spam folder or it was stopped by your system anyhow. In any case, we answered your call when you called us that morning explaining the situation. We are sorry for the inconvenience, but it was not our fault. Regards,
