Jose, our driver, tour guide, AND pilot, was in front of our hotel exactly at 6:00am, as promised and we were off to Segovia. It was a crisp, clear and beautiful morning, and my 14-year-old son and I had never been in a hot air ballon before. We loved it, and we highly recommend this tour. Beautiful
What can I say that hasn't already been said? It was such a fun day - all of the staff were very friendly while professional. They kept us laughing. Although the wind wasn't accommodating and we weren't able to actually fly over the city, we were close enough for some excellent photos, and it was nice to simply look at open land, a rare sight in California. Our pilot, Cristian, was very informative and fun, which made the group in the basket friendly. Best thing was the landing! We landed smoothly, but the land crew was not able to get to us due to a fence. So, we lifted up again to move closer, and......ran into the fence. It was just a wire fence but it was sooooooo fun. We were screaming and laughing so hard we were crying! And then, we got to help them wrap up the balloon. So we felt like we were part of the crew. Experience of a lifetime!
Only one word for the whole experience: AMAZING!!! The trip was everything we expected. We ordered the pickup option from Madrid to Segovia and the ride was perfect, no problems. Once we were there at the departure point the expectation was freaking good. The flight was great, and the driver/pilot, Jose, was amazing. He explained to us how everything was going to be and we could enjoy the trip at its maximum. The drink after the flight has its on history, so one more thing that we learnt.
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!
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'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.
