Fantastic adventure and we loved the whole experience of ballooning over Segovia. Well planned and organised and we couldn't have been happier with the experience and the people involved - Juan and Christian. Contact was made the day before and the pick up was right on time. We thought it was great value for money and would do it all over again. We were dropped off in Segovia after the breakfast so we could spend time in the town and make our own way back to Madrid - by train which is worth booking beforehand, or you need to do it online from Segovia.
Awesome, safe, magical, spellbinding. An unforgettable experience I will treasure forever. Floating up in the clouds, feeling such a sense of calmness as we view the castle, the aqueduct and the city of Segovia below us is simply breath taking. Booked solo with Siempre en las nubes and Jose, the pilot was so amiable, knowledgeable and such a professional along with Alfredo who handled the equipments that he removed any initial apprehensions I may have had that I wished I could have stayed up longer up in the sky. There was champagne, ham, cheese, certificate, photos and video afterwards. The 2 hours exploring the city before dropping me off the hotel was an added bonus. Much appreciated and definitely a must try!
This was an INCREDIBLE adventure. Hot air balloon ride was on the bucket list and I planned this day as I was on a Spain trip with my mom as a surprise. We opted for the pickup from Madrid, which I highly recommend as it makes the early morning much easier! The pilots - Jose and Christian - were fantastic the entire day. Friendly, chatty with my mom who only spoke English, fully reviewed safety and rules for landing, answered any questions you could think of and more. The setting up of the balloon was so interesting and the flight itself can't be described with words in one short review, but it was fantastic!!! Beautiful sunrise views of the castle, cathedral, and aquaducts as well as the backdrop of mountains and fields below of sunflowers and hay not a farmgirl, but it appeared to be hay... After the flight, we were actually set free in the town for an hour and a half - enough time to fetch a coffee and see the sights of Segovia up close. We headed back to Madrid happy and with lots of pictures to document the day. Gracias, Siempre en las Nubes!
This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me, and the company that provided this service in Madrid was absolutely wonderful! We'd toured all over Anadalucia, but seeing it from this remarkable vantage point was truly amazing. The entire trip went off perfectly as we floated above the beautiful village of Segovia, feeling almost angelic amid the silence of a gorgeous morning. It's certainly a 'must-do' tour!
Fantastic tour with Jose as a fantastic guide. Will recommend this to anyone going to spain!
The tour was perfect !!! Jose Luis our guide and pilot was very friendly and explained in detail all matter related to balloon flight. The sights over Segovia were magnificent and this was a one in a lifetime experience.
Thank you Jose Luis !!!
this was the absolutely highlight in my weekend trip in Madrid. I would highly recommend everyone, who would like stay no more than two days in Madrid, to do this hot air balloon flight up in the cloud over the historical town, Segovia. it starts at early morning and finish before noon, giving you the most efficient itinerary and saving up enough time for you to visit Madrid city If you would like a weekend trip from London as we did. it might take you more than half a day to visit Segovia, as there and #39;s no direct train from central Madrid to there. the pilot was an absolute delight with good English and genius sense of capturing the happy moment using his “go pro”. the video and photos were developed in a very good shape, which much more than my expectation. the moments he filmed for us would recall the happiest time in Madrid.
This tour was great. So well organized and planned. Had such a great time! My tour guides and ballon operators were very nice. Would highly recommend to anyone.
Great experience, amazing views, pleasant crew. Had great time and would highly recommend. Dress warm!
Absolutely fabulous experience. José was an excellent pilot and so hospitable to everyone. He works tremendously hard to make everyone happy. The balloon ride was unbelievable... just make sure to dress for colder weather!
