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.
