What You Can Expect
A brilliant trip! In fact, the balloon ride was in Cordoba, not Granada... No matter: we were well-looked after, from pick-up to drop-off. The balloon team from Gloobo were excellent, and although most on the trip were Spanish, our pilot spoke fair English and took the trouble to include us in everything that was happening. It helped that we had perfect weather, but the trip exceeded our expectations, with fabulous views of old Cordoba and of the Andalucian countryside. Great fun, and highly recommended.
Can't recommend this trip highly enough. Excellent communication pre-trip, punctual pick up as arranged and friendly staff on the trip. Miguel, my pilot spoke English as well as Spanish. Safety was paramount, with weather being the main concern and a full safety briefing before we set off. The views are beautiful over Granada and everyone gets to see everything, as Miguel skillfully spun the balloon gently throughout the trip. Exact course and duration of the trip depends on the wind speed and direction, but I was lucky enough to be in the air for almost an hour and had a soft landing. Breakfast is at a local hotel restaurant and was standard Spanish fare. Great start to the morning!
Do to weather we wound up taking our balloon ride from Seville which was our next stop.
Our guide stayed in constant contact with us and made the change of location very easy.
The ride was amazing. It even impressed my children who are in their 20's.
The crew made it so much fun! HIGHLY recoomend.
