This was my highlight excursion in Madrid. I felt safe with Jose, the balloonist, who took us up to 3000 feet. I was scared at first but quickly got into the quiet serene views of the castle and old town Segovia. Glad I took a jacket! After we landed, we cheered to bubbly and snacks. I would do it again in a heartbeat! Thank you!

We opted for the free transport from our hotel a little outside the centre of Madrid and were not disappointed, especially as the pilot (whose English was very good) took us back afterwards. It's an early start (5.30am) from Madrid but certainly well worth it, and we were back around midday so had the rest of the day to enjoy. We certainly think that Segovia was the best choice, with great views of this wonderful old city. Finally, I would say that, for first timers, the very large basket, holding about 16 people, definitely felt safer that some of the smaller baskets we saw on other balloons that day !!!

The tour was nice, the balloonist was a very nice guy, we expected to see more from Segovia from above,but this was just a Short experience,
I recommend the tour to everyone who hasn't done a balloontour yet
It's a nice experience and a good price for get balloon tour.
