Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

Disappointing flight

When we got to the location to board the hot air balloon nothing was ready and we had to wait outside for over an hour in the very cold temperature 32 degree weather while they were preparing the balloons. We had to ask to go back in the transport van while we waited. Once in flight the trip was pleasant, however the tour guide did not even once offered any history or discussion about the area in which we were flying over. We had to ask him questions like “what is this, what is that?” If we didn’t he did not offer any information about the area at all. Then once we landed in a farm area full of wet muddy soil and cow manurer all the flight passengers had to help the tour guide and one of the transportation guys to fold the very heavy balloon up, pack it up and lift it onto the truck. Many of us ruined our shoes in the very wet, smelly and muddy soil. I’m not sure why this operation didn’t have a second crew available to handle all of the packing of the gear up and have a driver ready to pick up the passengers to take them back to their location. I just feel for the cost of this tour over $800 for four people asking or expecting us to get involved in the packing and lifting of heavy supplies like that is unprofessional. What if there weren’t any capable tourists available to assist what would the tour operators would have done?. It took well over 2 hrs to finally get everything neatly packaged and put away before our van took us back to our hotel. The operators felt bad but they did not have enough help.

Dear Paola, Sorry to hear that you didn’t had a nice experience as we aimed for our guests. You arrive to the launchfield when the balloons are being prepared to give an opportunity to the passengers to make pictures and enjoy the inflation process. Obviously you can stay outside and walk around the balloons or wait in the vans if you feel more comfortable there. The pilots are instructed to answer every question from the passengers about the balloon performance, the monuments and sites in the ground, but they also need to be concentrated in the flight. They are happy to answer your questions but they cannot be considered as tour guides as their flight duties are esential for the safety of the passengers. The previous weeks it was raining a lot in the area so the balloon was moved by the crew to the driest field around, but you need to take into consideration that every outdoor activity has some interaction with the terrain and the clothing hints we give are for this reason. Helping in the packing process is always optional; we give the opportunity to share this with the crew because it’s very appreciated in most of the guests comments, but is never an obligation. Every balloon operator is counting on the help from the passengers but is able to pack the equipment by themselves, although it will take more time. Looking to the actual timings on the pictures from your flight, it took 55 minutes and not the 2 hours you may have the impresion. In the other hand, if the operation would need extra crews to pack the balloon, the cost per person will be much higher. Wishing you a happy stay in Spain and the best for 2020!

More than expected

We were staying in Madrid, which is an hour out from Segovia, and they picked us up right on time at 6:45 am. The drive was so smooth, we both fell asleep on the way, and it was even better when they stopped at the gas station to let us know there wasn’t a bathroom there and we could also grab an espresso. The drop off location was beautiful and we were greeted with smiling faces and specifics about what they were doing to prepare and what we could do in the mean time. It was phenomenal just getting to watch them unpack the whole balloon and get it inflated. They were very informative about how the balloon operates, what to expect in the air and the correct position to stand in for landing. There were two very experienced operators that were so confident, I never hesitated to jump in. I have some fear of heights, so when we started lifting off I got a little concerned but it went away pretty fast and I never had any safety concerns whatsoever. As we floated above the town, we got some information about the history. We then went over some hay fields where we landed for a snack of meats, cheese, crackers, and champagne!!! It was fun when they presented us with Certificates as well. They send you photos and the go-pro video of the flight for free! Which in the states would be at least $100. However, we haven’t received them yet, but it’s only been a day. We also got a smooth ride all the way back to Madrid. We highly recommend this! The crew made it totally with it, and you can’t beat the views from up there.

Birds eye view of the beautiful Segovia town

A charming and well coordinated ride over the beautiful town of Segovia. The ride starts early and it was cold. The coordination by the team over mail was very prompt and the ride to the venue was also very smooth. Once you reach you realize that the effort needed to put into the balloon is pretty exhausting. Also the post ride wrap up also takes time. Make sure you give a hand to the team. They are always smiling and some support from the travellers really go a long way. You also get to taste some champagne which comes as a part of the package. Only one suggestion do keep some mobile toilets for the women travellers. It will be helpful.

I highly recommend this company and the hot-air balloon experience in Segovia. We organized for a pick up from Madrid - they communicated well and the driver was on time and really kind. We loved the flying experience from start to finish, and they followed up with pics and videos too! Thanks so much Aerotours.

A great experience for everyone. The driver and hot air balloon pilot accommodated to everyone including members with disabilities. This experience is worth every penny. The views were beautiful and breathtaking. Highly recommend Rodrigo & Ishmael. We felt like family and they made the experience more enjoyable. We would do this again in a heart beat.
